The Disney+ original series is returning for a third season but will see the departure of one of the main cast members
High School Musical: The Musical: The Series is a comedy series that follows a group of students from the school where the High School Musical movies were filmed.
The series is a spin-off of the popular Disney films starring Zac Efron and Vanessa Hudgens.
In the film, basketball protégé Troy Bolton and chemistry genius Gabriella Montez take part in a school musical together and develop a strong romance.
In the first season, the school put on a stage production based on the High School Musical films, and in the second season, they took on Beauty and the Beast.
The series has retained the cheesy charm of the TV-movie-style films while breathing new life into the franchise for new audiences.
What is Season 3 of High School Musical: The Musical: The Series about?
Season 3 takes place after the events of Season 2 as East High students prepare for their summer vacation.
Students spend two weeks at Camp Shallow Lake, a summer camp for East High drama kids.
But it won’t be all campfires, star gazing and romance as the campers will be tasked with putting on a high stakes music production of the Disney film Frozen.
At the same time, a camera crew will be at the camp to make behind-the-scenes documentaries about the group.
Who is in the cast of High School Musical Season 3?
