The returning original cast has been revealed as production for Season 4 begins. Some key actors have been left out of the D23 Expo early this month.
HSMTMTS is currently filming in Salt Lake City, Utah, with some beloved original cast members returning to East High. Corbin Bleu, Monique Coleman, Lucas Grabeel, Alyson Reed, and Kaycee Stroh are returning to the franchise after starring in the original trilogy, but its biggest actors arenotably absent: Zac Efron, Vanessa Hudgens, and Ashley Tisdale.
Following Season 3, Corbin Bleu returned to Disney+ as an ass version of himself as the East High kids went to summer camp and he directed a film adaptation of Frozen. Lucas Grabeel also previously guest starred in the series first season before joining Monique Coleman and Bleu for Lifetimes A Christmas Dance Reunion last year.
In the Stick To The Status Quo number, Alyson Reed played East Highs theater teacher Ms. Darbus, Bart Johnson played the father of Zac Efrons Troy Bolton, and Kaycee Stroh played Martha Cox, who revealed hip-hop is my passion! Within the show, it wont be the same without the greatest actors and actresses.
Im going to chalk that up to being a remarkable coincidence, but wed love to get Zac and Vanessa and all of them back, so were actively working on it right now.
Zac Efron has mentioned his desire to return to Troy Bolton someday, but for the time being, the High School Musical reunion appears to be incomplete because the three Disney Channel actors are unable to connect with their former counterparts.
