Here's everything we know so far about the HSMTMTS season 3 musical.
The final episode of High School Musical: The Musical: The Series season 2 has just aired on Disney+. This season saw our favourite East High students put on a production of Beauty and the Beast to compete against North High in the prestigious Alan Menken Awards for high school musical theatre and it included multiple stunning renditions of the musical's songs.
Disney+ are yet to officially announce if there will be a High School Musical: The Musical: The Series season 3 but the cast and creator have both hinted that there are already plans for it. In other words, it looks like we'll be seeing the students of East High will put on another musical soon. With that in mind, here's what we know about the season 3 musical so far.
What is the HSMTMTS season 3 musical? Here's what the creator has said.
The first season of HSMTMTS was all about the students of the actual school where High School Musical was filmed putting on a production of High School Musical. This led fans and the actual characters to believe that the season 2 musical would be High School Musical 2 but Miss Jenn decided to do a more classic musical to compete in the Alan Menken Awards.
Just a few months after the first season of HSMTMTS came out, Disney+ revealed that the season 2 musical would be the legendary Beauty & the Beast. Season 2 features many stunning renditions of Beauty and the Beast classics, alongside covers of High School Musical 2 songs and multiple original HSMTMTS soundtrack songs. What's next though?
There is no official word yet on what the High School Musical: The Musical: The Series season 3 musical will be. However, it appears that it will be Frozen. In an announcement that season 3 will come out in 2022, the phrase "love is an open door" appeared and Disney+ wrote: 'We already have chills" complete with snowflake emojis.
Speaking to Hollywood Life about what the next musical could be, HSMTMTS creator Tim Federle teased: "Choosing the musical for the show is hard because there are so many possibilities. You can go way, way off, you can go High School Musical 3, you can create a new musical."
He continued: "I think at the end of the day, the music is a really cool storytelling component of the show, but I really think it’s about the character dynamics. It’s like Gina and Ricky, Nini and Ricky, and it’s Big Red and Ashlyn that I think the audience really tunes in for. That’s a big decision we weigh in heavily when choosing the next show."
If it is indeed Frozen, expect to hear all the classics alongside new, original music as always.
