'HSMTMTS' Showrunner Tim Federle Opens Up About Possibility of a Spinoff Or Reunion

Could there be more High School Musical: The Musical: The Series in the future?!

Many fans are already speculating and hoping for a college spinoff, and showrunner and creator Tim Federle recently opened up about the possibilities of seeing these characters again.

If you somehow didn’t know, the upcoming fourth season was announced to be it’s last.

Check out what Tim said about the future inside…

“Oh, yeah. Yes, of course—in a ‘never say never’ way. Right now, we’re all really focused on August 9. I want season 4 to be our biggest season ever. I want this cast to feel celebrated,” Tim told Screen Rant about seeing the characters again.

Gary Marsh is the former president of Disney Channel, now the incredible Ayo Davis, but Gary said to me, ‘We tried to reboot High School Musical for 10 years, and we couldn’t figure it out,’” he said. “I feel very lucky that I apparently had a take that worked, but who knows what’s going to happen in 5 years? 10 years? College? There are a lot of different places we could take these characters, but for now, they’re definitely graduating from high school, and I hope the audience tunes in and graduates with us.”

Tim also dished on now being the right time for the fan-favorite series to come to an end.

“It [felt right] for so many reasons. Creatively, because he was graduating, and because there are some couples and romances that finally start to come together this season where I was like, ‘I don’t want to see this get ruined,’” he shared with Screen Rant. “But also, creatively, because I have multiple showrunner friends whose shows end on a cliffhanger, and they don’t get renewed, and the fans are upset, and the cast is upset.”

Tim continued, “I really felt like, as a tribute to Disney and the fans and this incredible cast and crew, that we ought to go out on our terms. I think, if you watch season 4 to the end, and I hope people do, they’ll see that we really tried to thank everyone on screen and also wrap this thing up and graduate.”

High School Musical: The Musical: The Series‘ fourth and final season premieres in full NEXT Wednesday (August 9) on Disney+!
