HSMTMTS Season 3 Cast
Olivia Rodrigo, who is the leading lady, a singer, also seems likely to return, but given her astronomic rise to fame in real life in the past few years, it’s not been confirmed yet.
This won’t be the first time a high school musical star will play themselves on the Disney+ series, as Lucas Grabeel also appeared as a version of his real-life self in Season 1 of the series.
In addition to Bleu’s guest-starring role, Hannah Montana star Jason Earles will also be as a guest star as the director of Camp Shallow Lake, the summer camp at which Season 3 will be set, and Meg Donnelly will play the camp counsellor, Val, who is choreographing Frozen. Adrian Lyles and Saylor Bell will join the series as series regulars, mysterious new kid Jet and rule-following tech-savvy Maddox.
As for the rest of the cast, we have other new faces such as:
- Joshua Bassett in the role of Ricky Bowen
- Matt Cornett as the character EJ Caswell
- Sofia Wylie, who plays Gina Porter
- Larry Saperstein as Big Red
- Julia Lester in the role of Ashlyn Caswell
- Dara Reneé as Kourtney Greene
- Frankie Rodriguez as Carlos Rodriguez
- Mark St Cyr as Benjamin Mazzara
- Kate Reinders as Miss Jenn
- Joe Serafini as Seb Matthew-Smith
Jordan Fisher may also end up playing a more meaningful role in the future after his character, Jamie Porter, made a compelling impact at the end of season two.
HSMTMTS Season 3 Plot
Season three of High School Musical sees the story move from Salt Lake City, Utah, to Los Angeles, California. The gang goes to theatre camp and then experiences several life-changing incidents.
We also know that this season’s music of choice will be Frozen, keeping up with their performances of High School Musical in season one and Beauty and The Beast in season two.
As a result of the new location could indicate that some favourite fan characters won’t be making an appearance as they will decide not to go.
“I think the storyline was left open-minded,” show creator Tim Federle told Hollywood Life. “I think items are open-ended actually for several characters just because you want the maximum flexibility going forward.
