Last month, Disney released the finale of the second season of “High School Musical: The Musical: The Series” and while no official announcement has been made regarding a third season, we’ve got a hint that it might be happening.
A new survey has been sent out to selected Disney+ subscribers asking them about “High School Musical: The Musical: The Series”, with the following questions:
Before today, what has been your experience with High School Musical: The Musical: The Series and it’s new season?
Which are the following reasons why you haven’t finished watching Season 2?
What if anything, do you enjoy about Season 2 of High School Musical: The Musical: The Series?
If new episodes of Season 2 of High School Musical: The Musical: The Series released all at once (instead of one each week), do you think you would have watched more episodes, the same amount or fewer episodes?
Focusing on a potential third season of High School Musical: The Musical: The Series, please tell us what you’d like to see more of or have future episodes focus on.
There are a number of interesting points raised in these survey questions.
First, the discussion of a third season and what people would like to see or focus on. While I personally enjoyed the performances in the second season, the second season wasn’t a touch on the first season. Disney decided to add an extra two episodes and honestly they seemed unnecessary. The other major problem was they weren’t able to finish the show off properly due to the pandemic, which meant it was a bit of a anticlimactic finale.
But most importantly, one of the questions shows Disney’s interested in finding out if people might have watched more episodes had they released the entire season at once.
Did Disney discover interest in the series was decreasing week to week?
While Disney has been primarily releasing its new original shows weekly, it has been experimenting with its release schedule. Including starting to releasing its documentaries in a binge format last year and later this month, Disney is releasing the entire second season of “Diary of a Future President” at once on Wednesday 18th August.
So if the binge format works better for shows aimed at younger audiences, there is a possibility that a third season of “High School Musical: The Musical: The Series” could do the same.
