“High School Musical” Reunion Is In The Works
Original cast member Corbin Bleu returned to the franchise by appearing in the third season of the Disney+ original series, “High School Musical: The Musical: The Series.” after seeing the success of having Bleu return, the showrunner feels a reunion with all members is possible.
“High School Musical” showrunner Tim Federle recently spoke to TVLine on Bleu’s return to the franchise. “Corbin had such a good time this season, he said, ‘If you ever want me to come back, just know this has been so much fun,’” Federle explained.
The showrunner went on to explain how Bleu’s return had him thinking about bringing back the rest of the original cast — Zac Efron, Vanessa Hudgens, Ashley Tisdale, Monique Coleman, and Lucus Grabiel, back into the story. “So that sort of inspired me to think, ‘What if our kids went back to school and had to be extras in a movie?’ Our show is so absurdly meta, it’s just going to turn into Inception one day. We’re really excited,” he said.
“I’m going to chalk that up to being a remarkable coincidence, but we’d love to get Zac and Vanessa and all of them back, so we’re actively working on that right now,” the “High School Musical” showrunner continued.
“High School Musical: The Musical: The Series” has already been renewed for a fourth season on Disney+. Seasons one-three are currently streaming on Disney+, along with the three “High School Musical” films.
