Lucas Grabeel Returns to 'High School Musical' as Himself for Disney+ Series!

It has been over a decade since Lucas Grabeel played Ryan Evans in the final High School Musical movie and now he’s returning to that universe!

The 35-year-old actor is making a cameo as HIMSELF in the new Disney+ show High School Musical: The Musical: The Series. In the episode, he plays a version of himself and performs a fantasy musical number with Miss Jenn, played by Broadway star Kate Reinders.

“I had a blast with these peeps! @hsmtmtseries My EPISODE IS LIVE NOW! @disneyplus Seriously, these kids are the freaking best. If you were an HSM fan, watch this show!” Lucas wrote on Instagram.

“He’s a good mixture of Ryan and Lucas,” Lucas told TV Line about his role. “And they let me add a couple things of my own, including a nod to ‘We’re All in This Together.’ I also got to wear one of Ryan’s old hats while running around an auditorium, singing and dancing — which I haven’t done in a long time.”

Check out the music video now and be sure to catch the whole episode, now streaming on Disney+!
