'High School Musical' TV Series Cast Includes Olivia Rodrigo, Sofia Wylie & More!

The full cast for the High School Musical television series was just announced!!!

Joshua Bassett, who was revealed as Ricky late last year, will be joined by Olivia Rodrigo, Kate Reinders, Sofia Wylie, Matt Cornett, Dara Renee, Julia Lester, Frankie A. Rodriguez, Larry Saperstein, and Mark St. Cyr in the upcoming Disney+ series.

The 10-episode series picks up nearly 15 years after the original movie aired, at the real-life location where it all began: East High.

It follows a group of students as they count down to opening night of their school’s first-ever production of “High School Musical”. Show-mances blossom; friendships are tested while new ones are made; rivalries flare; and lives are changed forever as these young people discover the transformative power that only a high school drama club can provide.

The series will also bring brand new songs and acoustic “rehearsal-room” reinterpretations of songs from the original High School Musical provide the soundtrack for an unlikely group of theater kids who learn “we’re all in this together” when it comes to pulling off an against-all-odds opening night.

Who is ready for the premiere of Freaky Friday tonight?! We know we are!

Based on Mary Rodgers’ 1972 novel of the same name, Freaky Friday tells the story of a mother and daughter who, strangely, spend a day in each other’s shoes.

Directed by Steve Carr, the music-driven contemporary body-swap comedy stars Cozi Zuehlsdorff and Heidi Blickenstaff, as well as Ricky He, Alex Desert, Jason Maybaum, Kahyun Kim, Dara Renee, Jennifer Laporte, Isaiah Lehtinen, and Sarah Willey.

Here’s the synopsis: Ellie (Cozi) is a 16-year-old attempting to assert her independence from her mom, Katherine (Heidi), a mother struggling to understand her stubborn teenage daughter. When Katherine won’t let Ellie participate in the school’s all-night scavenger hunt, a heated confrontation leaves both women wishing that the other would change their ways.

The mother and daughter magically swap bodies through the power of an hourglass which then accidentally shatters. Now, they must hunt down the matching hourglass in order to switch back before it’s too late!

Freaky Friday premieres on TONIGHT, August 10th @ 8PM ET/PT on Disney Channel.
