The upcoming second series will see the students of East High prepare to perform the Disney classic Beauty and the Beast.
The first series followed the students as they put on a school performance of the film, High School Movie, starring Vanessa Hudgens, Zac Efron and Ashley Tisdale.
However, for season two, things will look a little different and will not see a recreation of the second High School Movie musical.
Speaking to Digital Spy, Federle said: “Because we’re still the High School Musical school, it’s hard for me to imagine season 2 not including some wink or even a musical element to the original franchise.”
Dancing with the Stars Derek Hough joins the cast as Miss Jenn’s (played by Kate Reinders) ex-boyfriend and rival drama teacher at North High.
High School Musical: The Musical: The Holiday Special will debut on Disney+ on Friday, December 11.
