Good news, wildcats — the fourth “High School Musical” movie is finally coming to fruition . . . just not in the way you might have expected. In a highly meta plot twist, for the fourth season of “High School Musical: The Musical: The Series,” the students of East High learn that “High School Musical 4: The Reunion” is being shot on their very own campus. This means that the series itself is going to include “High School Musical 4” and will presumably serve as the host for a massive “High School Musical” reunion.
The students in “HSMTMTS” also find out that they will be playing extras in the movie, which has some people thinking that the cast may be joining some familiar faces from the original “High School Musical” movies (although the exact stars of season four have yet to be revealed). Joshua Bassett, Sofia Wylie, Matt Cornett and Dara Reneé confirmed the news at Disney’s D23 Expo on Sept. 10, but read on to find out everything else we know about the upcoming season and the long-awaited reunion movie.
