Rydell High: Grease Spinoff Given Series Order At HBO Max

TVLine is reporting that HBO Max have given a series order to Grease, with the musical spinoff being titled Grease: Rydell High.


Inspired by the 1978 film, Grease: Rydell High will be set in the 1950’s, when the Pink Ladies and the T-Birds still rule the school, and will feature some characters you already know, and a whole lot more you will soon meet. The musical numbers will include hit songs from the time period along with original compositions, as the series is set to explore the peer pressures of High School, the horrors of puberty and the rollercoaster of life in middle America with a modern sensibility that will bring it to life for today’s musical lovers.


Sarah Aubrey, Head of Original Content at HBO Max, released a statement saying:

This is high school and life in small-town USA told on the scale of a big rock ‘n’ roll musical. It’s Grease 2.0 but with the same spirit, energy and excitement you immediately think of when you hear any of these iconic songs.
