Breaking Free! What Lies Ahead For HSM Series in Season 2 and Beyond

  • Popsugar
High School Musical: The Musical: The Series is closing the curtain on season one, and it's a wild ride. The finale, which aired on Jan. 10, is jam-packed with nostalgia as the students at East High put on their very own production of High School Musical, but it also includes plenty of drama (on and off the stage). Ricky and Nini profess their love for each other, Gina might be returning to East High after all, and Big Red and Ashlyn finally solidify their romance.

With all the twists and cliffhangers, we already have tons of questions about what's to come. Thankfully, the Disney+ series has already been renewed for season two, so we won't have to wait too long for answers. In the meantime, we went straight to the source to chat with showrunner Tim Federle on everything from the Nini/Ricky/Gina love triangle to how the second season

Wildcat Alum Lucas Grabeel "Comes Home" on High School Musical Series

  • Popsugar
Image Source: Disney

More than a decade after saying goodbye to High School Musical, Lucas Grabeel is going back to his Wildcat roots with Disney+'s High School Musical: The Musical: The Series. In the upcoming episode, titled "The Tech Rehearsal," the actor makes a fun cameo as he sings along with theater director Miss Jenn in a dream sequence. However, instead of playing his iconic character Ryan Evans from the films, Grabeel is actually playing a version of himself.

As an Og Wildcat, Grabeel has always been skeptical about rebooting the High School Musical franchise over the years, but there was just something about the Disney+ series that felt different. "Over the years, I had heard whispers of possible sequels, television series, or different ideas that Disney was rolling around to continue the franchise, and to be honest, a lot of those ideas I didn't really care for," he told Popsugar.

Cable Ratings 2019: Fox News Tops Total Viewers, ESPN Wins 18-49 Demo As Entertainment Networks Slide

  • Deadline
Ad-supported cable business’ fortunes continue to decline unless it’s live programming – news and sports.

Cable news networks Fox News and MSNBC and sports-focused ESPN repeated as 1-2-3 atop all basic cable networks in total viewers in Live+7 Nielsen ratings for 2019. That is all the more impressive because live non-entertainment programming gets very little delayed viewing, and even more important for advertisers who put a premium on ad-supported content where commercials can’t be skipped.

Fox News was the top-rated basic cable network among total viewers for a fourth year in a row, with an average of 2.57 million in L+7. In second place was a news network on the other side of the deepening partisan fault line, MSNBC, with 1.80 million, according to Nielsen. CNN notched an average of 1 million.

Fox News also reported its highest-rated primetime in history with an average of 2.5 million viewers. Hannity was the top-rated program

Lucas Grabeel Talks "Surreal" Legacy of High School Musical As He Returns to Cameo in the Series

Lucas Grabeel Talks
Ryan Evans is heading back to East High, in a way.  Lucas Grabeel is guest starring in the newest episode of High School Musical: The Musical: The Series, but he's not there to sing "Bop to the Top," or even to step back into the shoes of Sharpay's fashionable brother from the movies. He's actually playing himself, in a dream sequence from the brain of Miss Jenn (Kate Reinders), who's having a bit of a panic attack as her production of High School Musical gets closer and closer to opening and she's faced with painful memories of her past, as a dancer in the movie whose one line got cut.  In a phone interview with E!

Friday’s episode of Disney+’s High School Musical: The Musical: The Series welcomes Lucas Grabeel, or at least a “dream sequence version” of him, back to the halls of East High for a very important duet. Spoiler alert: Jazz hands abound.

Grabeel, who portrayed Ryan Evans in the original HSM trilogy (plus a brief cameo in Sharpay’s Fabulous Adventure!), appears in a fantasy musical number to help Miss Jenn forget about her sordid past and focus on what really matters — inspiring her students.

Zac Efron Is the McU's Human Torch in BossLogic's Fantastic Four Fan Art
A new movie based on Fantastic Four is currently in the works, and Zac Efron has been imagined as the Human Torch in some awesome new fan art.

Better yet, we get multiple images of Efron in the role, showing how he'd look as the character with and without the flames covering his entire body. You can take a look at the fan art below.

Turning up the heat, brought to you by me and the #lgx team creating @ZacEfron as the human torch but going a little beyond that creating a functional suit. We got a list of dream live action characters we want to tackle, be sure to stay tuned ❤️

‘Turner & Hooch’ TV Series In Works At Disney+ From Matt Nix
The classic 1989s buddy cop comedy feature Turner & Hooch is getting a TV series treatment for Disney+. I have learned that the Disney streaming platform is working on a Turner & Hooch TV series adaptation from Burn Notice creator Matt Nix and 20th Century Fox TV where Nix is under an overall deal.

Details about the series are scarce, but it is believed to be keeping the premise of the original movie, which starred Tom Hanks, and also revolves around a police detective and his dog, I hear.
