26 September 2022, 18:35
Will there be a High School Musical: The Musical: The Series season 4? Here's everything we know about HSMTMTS season 4 so far.
Disney+ renewed High School Musical: The Musical: The Series for season 4 before season 3 of the hit show even came out.
Taking to Instagram (May 21), the official High School Musical: The Musical: The Series Instagram account posted a video of the news with the caption: "Season 4 is officially confirmed for #DisneyPlus!" This means that fans can expect to see even more of their favourite characters after HSMTMTS season 3 wraps. Not to mention, plenty more East High drama.
What else have Disney+ revealed about High School Musical: The Musical: The Series season 4 so far though? Is it true that Zac Efron and Vanessa Hudgens will star in it? Will Olivia Rodrigo be back as Nini? Here's everything that we know about HSMTMTS season 4 including the season's release date, cast, trailer, soundtrack, musical and a lot more.
When does High School Musical: The Musical: The Series season 4 come out?
When is the HSMTMTS season 4 release date?
As it stands, Disney+ are yet to reveal any information about when High School Musical: The Musical: The Series season 4 is set to drop. With HSMTMTS season 3 debuting in July 2023, we imagine that season 4 won't air until 2024. Based on past release dates, our guess is that season 4 will debut around summer 2024.
However, given that season 4 was confirmed before season 3 even aired, it's possible that season 4 will drop even sooner. We shall keep you posted with any updates.
Who will be in the HSMTMTS season 4 cast?
Taking to Instagram (Sep 24), Disney have confirmed that our faves Joshua Bassett (Ricky), Sofia Wylie (Gina), Julia Lester (Ashlyn), Dara Renée (Kourtney), Frankie Rodriguez (Carlos) and Kate Reinders (Miss Jenn) will all be back for more East High antics. In other words, the lead cast is remaining pretty stable.
In extremely iconic East High news, Disney have also let slip that Corbin Bleu, Lucas Gabreel and Monique Coleman, who played Chad, Ryan and Taylor in the original High School Musical movies, will be in season 4 as themselves. This will be Monique's first time acting in the series.
It's yet to be confirmed if Larry Saperstein (Big Red), Joe Serafini (Seb), Mark St Cyr. (Mr. Benjamin Mazzara) will join them. We will also have to wait to find out if newcomers Adrian Lyles (Jet), Saylor Bell (Maddox), Meg Donnelly (Val) and Jason Earles (Dewey Wood) will be back.
Will Matt Cornett be in HSMTMTS season 4?
With E.J. currently set to leave East High, and move to St. Louis, at the end of season 3, it's unclear if Matt Cornett will be in High School Musical: The Musical: The Series season 4 at all. It's possible that he will take on a lesser role in season 4 but, given that Gina's broken up with him, we doubt he'll have much reason to return to East High if he does go to St. Louis.
We'll let you know as soon as Matt says anything about what's next for E.J..
Will Olivia Rodrigo be in HSMTMTS season 4?
Olivia Rodrigo appeared to confirm that she had left High School Musical: The Musical: The Series after taking to the red carpet at the season 3 premiere. With a cast pic, she said: "love all these people so so so much. knowing and working with them has been one of the greatest joys of my life. episode 1 of season 3 of hsmtmts is streaming now! wildcats forever."
Olivia actually stepped down as a main character in season 3 appearing in far less episode. She told The Guardian in May 2021 that her focus is now music. In the season 3 finale, Nini bid goodbye to her East High classmates and announced that she was moving to LA so it's unlikely that Olivia will appear in the show in season 4.
What will the musical in HSMTMTS season 4 be?
The High School Musical: The Musical: The Series season 4 musical is going to take things back to the original and be High School Musical 3: Senior Year. Just like previous seasons, we imagine that there will be plenty of iconic covers and original songs in season 4. Fingers crossed that we get Ricky and Nini renditions of 'Scream' and 'I Want It All' this season.
What will happen in HSMTMTS season 4?
On Saturday (Sep 10), Disney+ revealed the plot of High School Musical: The Musical: The Series season 4 at the D23 Expo. On their first day back at school, the students of East High will learn that the actual High School Musical cast will be filming a High School Musical 4: The Reunion movie at East High and they will all get to play extras in the film.
In other words, as Ricky, Nini, Kourtney, Ashlyn, Carlos and the rest of our fave characters rehearse to put on a production of High School Musical 3: Senior Year, they'll also be interacting with actors from the actual High School Musical cast.
Will Zac Efron and Vanessa Hudgens be in HSMTMTS season 4?
Zac Efron and Vanessa Hudgens are yet to confirm if they will be in igh School Musical: The Musical: The Series season 4. However, they both recently broke the internet after posting photos and videos of them at the school were High School Musical: The Musical: The Series is filmed on Instagram. Could they have been filming HSMTMTS?
Zac also recently let slip that he would love to do a High School Musical reboot. He told E! News: "Seriously, having the opportunity, in any form, to go back and work with that team would be amazing. My heart's still there. That would be incredible. I hope it happens." What if he already knew about HSMTMTS season 4?
Given that Lucas Gabrell, Kaycee Stroh and Corbin Bleu have all appeared in HSMTMTS, we would not be surprised if they're joined by Zac, Vanessa and other iconic original HSM stars like Ashley Tisdale.
Is there a HSMTMTS season 4 trailer yet?
Disney+ are yet to release any High School Musical: The Musical: The Series trailers or teaser videos but we shall let you know as soon as they do.
