Disney+'s 'High School Musical: The Musical: The Series' to End After 4 Seasons

Disney+ has today announced that the upcoming fourth season of its original comedy series High School Musical: The Musical: The Series will be its last. The streamer also announced a premiere date for the final season.

All 8 episodes of the fourth and final season will be available on Wednesday, August 9.

The new season sees the Wildcats return to East High, where they prepare a stage production of "High School Musical 3: Senior Year." But, in a meta twist signature to the series, plans are disrupted when Disney announces the long-awaited High School Musical 4: The Reunion movie will shoot on location at their beloved high school.

The comedy stars Joshua Bassett, Sofia Wylie, Dara Reneé, Julia Lester, Frankie Rodriguez, Kate Reinders and Liamani Segura.

Recurring guest stars include Kylie Cantrall, Matthew Sato, Caitlin Reilly, Vasthy Mompoint, Mark St. Cyr, Matt Cornett, Larry Saperstein, Joe Serafini, Adrian Lyles and Saylor Bell Curda.

Franchise alum Corbin Blue, Monique Coleman, Lucas Grabeel, Bart Johnson, Alyson Reed and Kaycee Stroh will play themselves as they resurrect their High School Musical roles, with the Wildcats playing featured extras in the movie.

"After four years at East High, it's time to graduate," said series creator and executive producer Tim Federle. "This will be our final, endgame season. This show brought the most extraordinary cast - and crew, and collaborators - to my life. To the fans, who embraced our super-meta series: we 'don't not love you.' We can't wait to share this epic 4th act with you all."
