Yes, High School Musical 4 is actually in the works at the Disney Channel – although it might not be the class reunion you were hoping for.
Disney Channel has formally launched a worldwide casting call for a fourth adventure set at East High, looking for a new generation of Wildcats.
Don't lose hope for a Zac Efron cameo altogether – as Disney is promising that High School Musical 4 will "continue the story" of its prior movies in some form.
"High School Musical is part of Disney Channel's DNA. It embodies all that we stand for," Disney Channel's president Gary Marsh has said.
"As a way of continuing to embrace that heritage, we're excited to announce 'the start of something new' - as we launch a search for a new class of East High Wildcats to star in a fourth installment of the High School Musical franchise."
On board to direct the sequel is choreographer Jeffrey Hornaday, a veteran of Disney Channel's Teen Beach Movie and more adult fare like A Chorus Line and Dick Tracy.
The director and choreographer behind the prior three High School Musicals was dance veteran Kenny Ortega, who is not yet being linked with the upcoming sequel.
However, original High School Musical writer Peter Barsocchini is teaming up with Baby Daddy's Dan Berendsen on the screenplay.
Nostalgia for High School Musical remains high, with the cast (minus Efron) reuniting earlier this year for a 10th anniversary special.
