"High School Musical: The Series" on the streaming service Disney+ is a great series to watch while stuck at home during the COVID-19 quarantine.
This compelling series, created by Tim Federle, is comprised of 10 episodes, and it is set at East High, which ironically enough, is the setting of the original film. It follows a group of students as they countdown to opening night of their school's first-ever production of High School Musical, which is directed by the school's new drama teacher Miss Jenn (played by Kate Reinders).
High School Musical: The Series is an interesting take on the classic feature film from 13 years ago. Joshua Bassett and Olivia Rodrigo are superb in their starring roles as Ricky and Nini, while Matt Cornett and Sofia Wylie are sensational as EJ and Gina respectively; moreover, they successfully tackle the roles of Troy, Gabriela, and Chad. The entire cast offers something unique and refreshing, and all of the performers are talented in their own right.
