High School Musical is here to stay. The series that in itself is an adaptation of the film series earlier is soon set to go begin streaming on Disney+ soon. And while it doesn't happen too often that a show is renewed for another season even before it's launched, it has happened this time around.
The series has already been officially renewed for a second season right before the actual launch date of the streaming platform and the show itself.
Production on season two will begin in early 2020.
The series, set at East High and following a group of students putting on a stage production of the High School Musical movie, comes from creator and executive producer Tim Federle (Ferdinand).
"We are incredibly excited to bring the next chapter of High School Musical: The Musical: The Series to Disney+," said Ricky Strauss, president of content and marketing at Disney+. "Tim and this talented cast have delivered a first season that is uplifting, funny, touching and relatable across generations. We are confident that the world, like us, will want much more of these characters, incredible songs and moments of joy."
The 10-episode series shot documentary style, will follow the students mounting the HSM production 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.
Disney+ launches on November 12.
