The original High School Musical movies starring Zac Efron captured the imagination of a whole generation when released back in the mid 2000s. Now the popular film has its own series that looks like having new audiences singing and dancing in front of their living room TVs.
High School Musical The Series Season 1 TV Preview
The idea behind the series is that East High School, where the original films were shot, is filled full of pupils who are major fans of Efron’s High School Musical movies. So much so that they want to create their own version, singing and dancing to all of their favourite songs.
It seems that the cast may have changed, but the kids at East High School still love to hit the high notes and dazzle with their choreography. With a little help from their music teacher, the students start laying down their plans for a spectacular end of year musical.
Starring Oliva Rodrigo (Bizaardvask), Joshua Bassett (Stuck In The Middle), Matt Cornett (Bella and the Bulldogs), and created by Tim Federle (Ferdinand), High School Musical The Series TV series arrived in Australia during November, 2019.

Must See TV for fans of High School Musical The Series
As Disney Plus has exclusive rights to all of their own productions, much of the content is only available via their platform. There are many movies and series that are shared with other services, such as Deadpool and the Star Wars films, but new and future Disney programming will be premiered exclusively on their streaming platform.
This means that recent productions such as Avengers Endgame and Encore will not be available on any other streaming platform or TV channel for the foreseeable future. So with this in mind, here’s a list of similar TV Shows that fans of High School Musical The Series may also enjoy watching.
