Inspired by Disney Channel's High School Musical film franchise, High School Musical: The Musical: The Series is a scripted, mockumentary-style show that follows students at a fictionalized version of Salt Lake City's East High School, where the original films were shot. The first season centers on the school's first production of the stage adaptation of High School Musical. The series was part of Disney+'s launch line-up in November, 2019 and was renewed for a second season before it premiered.
