It’s time to get’cha head in the game, because Disney+ has officially arrived.
One of the most anticipated original shows on the new streaming service is High School Musical: The Musical: The Series. The reboot — which has already been renewed for a sophomore season — follows a group of high school juniors putting on their school’s theatrical production of (you guessed it) High School Musical, the Disney Channel movie that made Zac Efron and Vanessa Hudgens famous. As creator and showrunner Tim Federle previously told PEOPLE, “Doing theater is all about finding your tribe.”
The original High School Musical movie — starring Efron, Hudgens, Ashley Tisdale, Corbin Bleu, Lucas Grabeel, and Monique Coleman — premiered on the Disney Channel on Jan. 20, 2006. A sequel followed on the network on Aug. 17, 2007, and then a third (centered around the group’s big graduation) hit theaters on Oct. 24, 2008.
“There aren’t a lot of writers who get to launch a new streaming platform like Disney+,” Federle said. “It’s a privilege to create a love letter to fans of the original High School Musical movies while also making an irreverent, feel-good musical for a new generation.”

The former couple is forced to put their differences aside to put on a successful show, as the show’s trailer teases more dancing, singing and drama to come, with (of course) the sound of a HSM classic, “Stick to the Status Quo.”
The 10-episode first season also follows transfer student Gina Porter (Sofia Wylie), E.J.’s cousin Ashlyn Caswell (Julia
