After spending the summer at Camp Shallow Lake, the Wildcats return to East High for Season 4 of High School Musical: The Musical: The Series. Even before the third installment debuted in July, Disney+ renewed HSMTMTS for a fourth season, with studio executive Ayo Davis praising the show in a May statement via Entertainment Tonight for delivering “best in class drama, humor, and heart.” “We can’t wait to see what the Wildcats have in store next,” Davis added.
She is not alone in this. “This series has been an epic adventure from the start,” said series creator and showrunner Tim Federle, “and I’m beyond grateful that we get to keep making music, telling these stories, and showcasing these exceptional stars.”
Here’s everything we know about Season 4 so far, now that HSMTMTS has been granted an encore performance.
High School Musical Season 4 potential release date: When will it return to Disney+?
If everything goes as planned, we can expect season four to premiere in the summer of 2023, and series star Sofia Wylie basically confirmed as much in an interview with People, revealing that production will begin in September 2022 in Salt Lake City, Utah.
High School Musical season 4 plot: What will happen in the fourth season?
Following the conclusion of Season 3, High School Musical showrunner Tim Federle spoke to People about the next steps and how Season 4 is a “true return to the original.”
“[It’s] a genuine return to why the show was greenlit in the first place, which is real theatre kids singing at this iconic location, aka East High,” he added.
But what about the rest of the future? Federle admits there is an endgame in sight if the show is canceled after season four:
“I think I’ve said glibly in the past that we’re going to go seven seasons, and I still would love that, but I think we’re just about the longest running reboot there is right now, which we’re all super, super grateful for and proud of.”
“In terms of how long the show will last, I definitely have endgames in mind for all of the characters.” I believe Disney and I will make that decision together.”
Will original cast members such as Olivia Rodrigo return when the time comes? “There’s a lot of people who have become a part of our extended family,” Federle said, “and I think when we reach that day, my hope is that it’s just a big cheerful, joyful party on set.”

High School Musical Season 4 Cast
Some of the new characters introduced at Camp Shallow Lake appear to be returning in the upcoming season. Tim told People after the season 3 finale that almost everyone, including Saylor Bell and Adrian Lyles, “is going to make their way back into the show.” He also confirmed that, despite having graduated from East High, Matt Cornett will reprise his role as EJ. “If you liked someone in season 3, they’ll probably be back,” Tim told People. “But we’re always sort of juggling the number of people whose stories we’re telling.” We can also expect to see Sofia Wylie, Joshua Bassett, Dara Reneé, Julia Lester, Frankie Rodriguez, and Joe Serafini, among others, as series regulars.
Tim confirmed to Entertainment Tonight in July 2022 that Olivia Rodrigo, who played Nini Salazar-Roberts on the show for the first three seasons, will not be reprising her role for season four. “I think she’s ready to venture beyond the halls of East High,” Tim told ET. “And Olivia was having such a massive explosion in the music industry that it felt like the right thing to work with Olivia and say, ‘How do we get you out there into the world with us taking a little bit more of a backseat?’ Which we were all proud to do to show our support for her.”
