'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.

'High School Musical: The Musical' TV Series Casts Joshua Bassett as Ricky

Disney has just announced the first cast member for the new High School Musical: The Musical digital series – Joshua Bassett!

You might recognize the 17-year-old actor from Stuck in the Middle, and he’ll play Ricky, a cynical but charming high school junior who launches a bold plan to win back his ex-girlfriend Nini – by auditioning to star opposite her in the school’s production of “High School Musical.”

The series is a 10 episode series, which follows a group of high school students who stage a performance of “High School Musical” for their fall theater production, only to realize that as much drama happens offstage as onstage. Every episode will include a new rendition of a beloved song from “High School Musical” as well as an original song.

The show will debut on Disney’s upcoming direct-to-consumer streaming service, which is set to launch in late 2019, and will be filmed in Salt Lake City, Utah, in a single camera documentary style.

“As someone whose childhood was shaped by the cultural phenomenon that is ‘High School Musical,’ I am thrilled to have the opportunity to continue to tell this story. Go Wildcats!” Joshua shared in a statement.

Congrats Joshua!
