‘High School Musical: The Musical: The Series’ Season 3 Cast: Ages, and Instagram


The East High Wildcats are back on Disney+ for theatre camp, and it looks like we’re about to get a whole new dose of teen drama. High School Musical: The Musical: The Series is coming back for its third season with a ton of new season 3 cast members. It’s a lot to unpack, I know.

Let’s give a little rundown on what happened with our fave students campers in season 2, shall we? After a successful performance of High School Musical in season 1, the drama club is back and ready to perform High School Musical 2. Miss Jenn (our drama adviser extraordinaire) wants to enter her students into a prestigious theater competition… until she realizes one of the clubs they’re going up against is run by none other than her ex. Oy vey. They switch gears and put on a rival production of Beauty and the Beast with an original song for The Rose by Nini herself… because Nini dropped out of her prestigious acting program about a week after she got there. The Ricky/Nini drama, at least on screen, took a backseat to some Carlos/Seb drama and the slow burn romance between EJ and Gina. They finally got their ish together at the end of the season, yay!

Yes, you might know and even love some of the cast by now. But there are so many fresh faces who are about to cause a stir in season 3. Here’s who we’re gonna see next…
