High School Musical: The Musical: The Series is adding new blood.
Asher Angel and Dear Evan Hansen star Andrew Barth Feldman have joined the season 2 cast of the Disney+ series as new guest stars, the streaming service announced Thursday. Angel’s casting marks a mini Andi Mack reunion with former co-star Sofia Wylie.
Angel will play Jack, who is described as “a charming, smooth-talking student with wanderlust.” Barth Feldman will be introduced as French exchange student Antoine.
“The cast and I are excited for fans to see how Andrew and Asher expand our East High cinematic universe,” executive producer Tim Federle said in a statement.
Debuting later this year, the 12-episode sophomore season will feature the East High drama department’s production of a beloved Disney classic, Beauty and the Beast. Iconic musical numbers from the High School Musical movie franchise, as well as the stage production of Beauty and the Beast and original songs, will be spotlighted throughout the season.
Here’s the official synopsis for the new season, per Disney+: “In season two, the East High Wildcats, who are preparing to perform Beauty and the Beast as their spring musical, face off against rival school North High to win a prestigious and cutthroat student theater competition. Wigs are snatched, loyalties are tested and ballads are belted.”
