Together! Together! Together, everyone!
On National Streaming Day, Disney+ announced it ordered a fourth season of High School Musical: The Musical: The Series—and the news comes just ahead of its third season premiere, streaming on July 27, 2022! Each of the eight episodes in the brand-new season will stream weekly on Wednesdays, exclusively on Disney+. The Disney Branded Television series, created and executive produced by Tim Federle, is inspired by the mega-popular, two-time Emmy® Award–winning High School Musical franchise.
“This series continues to deliver best-in-class drama, humor, and heart,” said Ayo Davis, president, Disney Branded Television. “Tim Federle’s vision and interpretation of this legacy IP keeps evolving season over season, and we can’t wait to see what’s in store for the Wildcats next.”
Federle added, “This series has been an epic adventure from the start, and I’m beyond grateful that we get to keep making music, telling these stories, and showcasing these exceptional stars.”
The third season of High School Musical: The Musical: The Series is set at Camp Shallow Lake, a sleepaway camp in California. The Wildcats and their fellow campers are primed for an unforgettable summer ripe with romance, curfew-less nights, and a taste of the great outdoors. With a high-stakes production of Frozen on the horizon—not to mention a drama-filled “docu-series” of the production in the works—the Wildcats will try to show who is “best in snow” without leaving anyone out in the cold.
