Since the announcement of season 3 of High School Musical: The Musical: The Series in September, there has been speculation as to whether Olivia Rodrigo will return.
With her blockbuster album, Sour, the actress-turned-pop diva has been lighting up the charts, and her popularity is rising at a truly meteoric rate. Without a doubt, Rodrigo is gifted. In the role of Nini Salazar-Roberts in High School Musical: The Musical: The Show, she displayed both her acting and singing talents to great success.
Rodrigo has actually chosen a different path from her co-stars, just like Nini did. Fans may have to bid this original cast member farewell sooner than they might have thought possible when they first fell in love with the show.
Here’s what we’ve learned!
Is Olivia Rodrigo Coming Back For HSMTMTS Season 3?
Olivia Rodrigo will appear as a cast member in season 3 of High School Musical: The Musical: The Show, according to the official cast list provided by Disney+. She’ll portray Nini once more.
No official announcement on Rodrigo’s leaving on High School Musical: The Musical: The Series has been made so far. She previously disclosed to The Guardian that she has two more years left on her deal with the program.
However, it shouldn’t be too shocking if Nini becomes more of a recurrent figure considering the popularity of her debut album and Rodrigo’s own wish to concentrate mostly on her music.
Creator and showrunner Tim Federle provided the following response to Entertainment Weekly when asked about Rodrigo returning to his role as Nini full-time:
Given the premise of season 3 and the fact that Nini concluded the season prepared to collaborate with Gina’s brother Jamie, a music producer, Rodrigo’s appearance in a reduced role could work. Rodrigo should take a step back now that the Wildcats are off to sleepaway camp for the summer break.
There hasn’t yet been an official statement about the series’ new cast members and returning actors. If Rodrigo does leave the series, we’ll let you know. Stay tuned for more High School Musical: The Musical: The Series season 3 news. Keep an eye on Hidden Remote!
