“High School Musical: The Musical: The Series” will begin streaming on Disney+ from November 12 this year.

The announcement was shared on the Facebook page of the High School Musical spin-off series, which officially wrapped production on Friday (July 26). “Its official! High School Musical: The Musical: The Series wrapped production this week. Start streaming November 12th only on #DisneyPlus,” the post read.

The 10-episode series picks up nearly 15 years after the original smash-hit movie aired and will follow a new group of musically-talented teens putting on a production of “High School Musical”. It will feature new songs and acoustic “rehearsal room” reinterpretations of the songs from the original films.

The ensemble cast is led by Joshua Bassett and Olivia Rodrigo, along with Matt Cornett, Sofia Wylie, Dara Renee, Frankie A Rodriguez, Julia Lester and Larry Saperstein. Broadway star Kate Reinders and Mark St Cyr also feature in the show.
