Amidst the intense streaming wars between current giants and forthcoming ones, two of the main contenders are none other than AppleTV+ and Disney+. And while there are several iconic shows that have already been enlisted by multiple streaming services, Disney has a mega show that might just be its biggest attraction.
As known, High School Musical is being adapted into a series where the posters of the new cast were released a few weeks ago. And now, the on-air date of the series has been revealed. According to a report in The Hollywood Reporter, High School Musical: The Musical: The Series, a new take on the Disney franchise, will get an on-air preview four days before the series premieres on Disney+ on Nov. 12, launch day for the service. Disney Channel (where the HSM movies became a phenomenon), ABC and Freeform will air the first episode at 8 p.m.
The series has actually been shot documentary style and follows a new class of students at East High, the Utah school where the original movie was filmed. The 10-episode series will follow the characters as they mount a production of High School Musical: The Musical, a stage production based on the movie, from auditions to opening night. Along the way, they experience budding romances, faltering friendships, and fierce rivalries, along with the transformative power of high school theater.
The ensemble cast is led by Joshua Bassett as Ricky, who auditions for the show in an effort to win back his ex-girlfriend, Nini (Olivia Rodrigo).
