On May 14, Disney+ returns to East High for the second season of High School Musical: The Musical:The Series.
Created by Tim Federle, the series paid tribute, in season 1, to the first movie of the saga created by Kenny Ortega and was particularly well reviewed. Will it be the same for the new episodes? Just a little more patience to find out. In the meantime, Disney’s streaming service has posted a first trailer that reveals the main storyline of the second season.
While the beginning of the trailer suggests that the drama club students will adapt the second High School Musical for the spring show, Miss Jenn (Kate Reinders) decides to go against her original plan. She finally chooses a reinterpretation of Beauty and the Beast to compete for the Alan Menken Award, an award for best musical produced by a high school. A logical choice since Alan Menken, famous Disney composer, is at the origin of the music of the animated movie released in 1991.
Season 2 of High School Musical: The Musical:The Series will also see Nini (Olivia Rodrigo) in her new environment after being accepted in a famous school. The Nini-Ricky (Joshua Bassett) relationship should, once again, be at the center of the new episodes as suggested by the trailer. Will their couple resist to the distance? Nini is sure of it and in view of the images, it is not certain that the teenager remains very long far from her friends.
In the cast of this second season, we will also see Matt Cornett (EJ), Julia Lester (Ashlyn), Sofia Wylie (Gina), Larry Saperstein (Big Red), Dara Renee (Kourtney), Frankie A. Rodriguez (Carlos), Joe Serafini (Seb) and Mark St.Cyr (Mr Mazzara). New faces also join the cast, including Olivia Rose Keegan, Derek Hough, Roman Banks and Jacob Young.
