The “High School Musical” series is celebrated for its fun escapist adventure. Teens get the chance to experience old-school musical numbers with new and updated songs and styles. They also get to learn about themselves and growing up by watching the light drama on the show. Thankfully, a third season has been announced, and it looks to be just as interesting as the first two!
What to Expect in Season 3
When Disney Plus announced it was greenlighting a third season of “High School Musical: The Series,” fans worldwide rejoiced. The adventures of East High appeals to a very broad range of viewers, particularly those who enjoy the fun and entertaining musical pieces. However, there is also a sub-set who enjoy the drama. So, will there be a lot of drama this season?
That probably depends on where the series decides to go. Producer Tim Federle has consistently worked to make this series fascinating and fun for fans of the original movies. The new plotline (leaving East High to go to a sleepaway camp) is one of those classic teen storylines that just makes sense. There’s so much fun and excitement surrounding summer camp.
Just as importantly, summer camp is often a time of potentially big adventure and drama. We’ve been promised campfires, showmances, and lots of sneaking around at night. But, of course, what summer adventure is complete without at least one person falling into the lake? And what summer vacation could possibly end without a few romances that could blossom into something much bigger.
Viewers are Likely Very Pumped
While it might seem to some that the series would be getting old to its many fans, that doesn’t seem to be the case. Let’s just take a look at the sheer numbers here. The combined soundtracks for the series, the musical, and the holiday special have 1.5 billion streams online to date. That’s a significant portion of the listening world, one that shows fans are still out there.
Producers believe that a whole new generation of fans will flock to the series to watch new young stars sing, dance, and perform. New cast members and returning members will work together to create fascinating dance routines, more balanced plot developments, and the kind of fun and engagement that goes along with any “High School Musical” project.
Will There Be a Season Four?
With season three just starting, expectations are high for the series. It is expected that viewing numbers will stay consistent from previous seasons and provide the kind of long-term sustainability that the series needs. If things go well, a season four is very likely. However, it is still way too early to project that far. Thankfully, fans should feel comforted by the presence of a third season.
