[UPDATE 04/08/21 12:30 PM ET]: There's some brand new competition coming for East High in the first trailer for season 2 of High School Musical: The Musical: The Series.

While the cast is pumped after the success of High School Musical, things quickly turn upside down when the drama teacher for West High reveals they're working on The Little Mermaid in hopes that they win an Alan Menken award. Instead of putting on their planned production of High School Musical 2, Miss Jenn decides to change their spring musical to Beauty and the Beast in the hopes that they have the best chance of winning.

Meanwhile, things with the cast are heating up thanks to their brand new competition. With Nini now at the Youth Actor's Conservatory, she decides to start a long distance relationship with Ricky. But someone at West High also has his eyes on him. Will their love survive? Or will they split up again? Check out the trailer below:

High School Musical: The Musical: The Series returns to Disney+ on May 14.

[UPDATE 02/25/2021 11:00 AM ET]: The wait for High School Musical: The Musical: The Series is almost over.

"In season two, 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," Disney+ revealed in a press release. "Wigs are snatched, loyalties are tested, and ballads are belted. The season also features brand-new solos written by Olivia Rodrigo and Joshua Bassett."

Andrew will play a French exchange student Antoine, while Asher will be playing Jack, a charming, smooth-talking student with wanderlust. There's no word on how many episodes they'll be joining in for, but we definitely can't wait to see them shake things up!

[UPDATE 10/08/2020 1:00 PM ET]: While we're certainly counting down the days until High School Musical: The Musical: The Series comes back, the cast is giving us the ultimate holiday present with an upcoming special.

In a press release, Disney announced that the cast is getting together to sing some of their favorite Christmas, Hanukkah and New Year's songs in the High School Musical: The Musical: The Holiday Special.

Not only will the new special reunite our favorite actors again as they absolutely blow us away with their amazing covers, but it will also include the first sneak peek into the new season.

So get ready to snuggle with some hot chocolate and sing-along with some iconic holiday tracks, because it will certainly be worth the wait!

High School Musical: The Musical: The Holiday Special will stream on Disney+ starting on November 20.

[Original Post]:

  • High School Musial: The Musical: The Series will perform Beauty and the Beast as their musical for season two.

  • The show originally performed High School Musical as East High's annual musical production.

  • Disney also revealed that the second season has already started production.

Get ready for auditions cause East High has finally announced their musical for 2020.

Disney+ has officially revealed that High School Musical: The Musical: The Series will be taking on Beauty and the Beast as their next production.

The show's second season has already started production and the cast got together to give fans a little glimpse of what they can expect next season.

While they might be taking on a completely new Disney classic as their new musical, fans can still expect to hear songs from the High School Musical franchise and new original tracks throughout the season.

"The outpouring of love and support for season one has been incredibly exciting, and I’m thrilled that the Wildcats are putting on 'Beauty & The Beast' in season two," said series creator Tim Federle. "It was one of the first Broadway shows I ever saw, when I was 14, and it's got all the perfect metaphors for the high school experience: Do people judge me for how I look? What is true love? Will I achieve the future I dream of? And, perhaps most importantly, it's got dancing forks."

There's no word on which characters will be playing the title roles of Belle and The Beast, but it wouldn't be surprising to see some big competition between all of them as they fight for their right to bring these iconic parts to life.

High School Musical: The Musical: The Series is currently set to return in late 2020 on Disney+.
