High School Musical: The Musical: The Series is back — and so is Olivia Rodrigo! At least, for a few episodes.

On Friday, Disney+ revealed a first look at season 3 featuring a few fan-favorite characters as well as other familiar Disney faces. Plus, ahead of the show's July 27 premiere, the streamer announced the series has been greenlit for season 4.

Disney+ also confirmed that star Rodrigo is returning to the series but as a recurring guest. The "drivers license" singer's music career has taken off since the series premiered in 2019.

But returning series regulars include Joshua Bassett, Sofia Wylie, Matt Cornett, Julia Lester, Dara Reneé, Frankie Rodriguez, Saylor Bell Curda and Adrian Lyles.
