Following the success of the first series of the Disney+ Original series “High School Musical: The Musical – The Series”, last year it was announced that the show would be returning for a second season.
Today, during the Television Critics Association Winter Press Tour, Disney officially announced that the second series of the show will be returning for new episodes on Friday 14th May, with new episodes dropping weekly afterwards.
In season two of “High School Musical: The Musical: The Series,” the East High Wildcats, who are preparing to perform “Beauty and the Beast” as their spring musical, face off against rival school North High to win a prestigious and cutthroat student theater competition. Wigs are snatched, loyalties are tested, and ballads are belted.
In addition to series regulars Olivia Rodrigo, Joshua Bassett, Matt Cornett, Sofia Wylie, Larry Saperstein, Julia Lester, Dara Reneé, Frankie Rodriguez, Joe Serafini, Mark St. Cyr and Kate Reinders, there are several exciting new characters this season.
Disney also released a number of new images from the second season:
Recurring guest stars include Derek Hough (“Dancing with the Stars”) as “Zack,” the new drama teacher at East High’s rival high school, who returns to Salt Lake after a successful acting career in New York City; Roman Banks (Broadway’s “Dear Evan Hansen”) as “Howie,” a high school junior who works after school as a delivery guy for Big Red’s family’s pizza shop, Salt Lake Slices; and Olivia Rose Keegan (“Days of Our Lives”) as”Lily,” an energetic East High student whose sweetness masks her highly competitive nature. Additional guest stars include Andrew Barth Feldman (Broadway’s “Dear Evan Hansen”) as French exchange student “Antoine” and Asher Angel(“Andi Mack”) as “Jack,” a charming, smooth-talking student with wanderlust.
The series is executive produced by creator Tim Federle (Golden Globe and Academy Award-nominated “Ferdinand”). Season one of “High School Musical: The Musical: The Series” is currently available on Disney+. It has been “Certified Fresh” on Rotten Tomatoes as measured by a consensus of reviews by top critics and audience members and was recently awarded a GLAAD Media Award.
