We've reported this before, but such great news is worth repeating.
It's now 100% official that the entire cast is coming back for High School Musical 3: Senior Year. Zac Efron, Vanessa Hudgens, Ashley Tisdale, Corbin Bleu, Monique Coleman and Lucas Grabeel have all inked contracts to reprise their beloved roles in the franchise.
Tisdale says she looks forward to returning to East High set in Utah one last time.
"I'm excited," she said. "But it's going to be sad. It seems like it will be graduation and I'll be crying while we're filming."
Meanwhile, here are brief High School Musical spoilers about the plot of the film:
High school seniors Troy [Zac Efron] and Gabriella [Vanessa Hudgens] face the prospect of being separated from one another as they in different directions to college. Joined by the rest of the Wildcat crew, they stage an elaborate spring musical reflecting their experiences, hopes and fears about their future.
The film is scheduled for an October 24 release. Mark your calendars!
