In perhaps the most exciting news we’ve heard all week, US network, HBO Max has confirmed that a TV spin-off of cult classic movie Grease is in the pipeline.
Watch below for a recap of the last Grease reunion
Inspired by the 1978 movie musical, Grease: Rydell High will be “set in and around the world of Rydell High” in the 1950s, the same era as the film which starred Olivia Newton-John and John Travolta.
WarnerMedia revealed the first look at the TV spin-off, a poster featuring a Pink Lady.
Entertainment Weekly reports that Rydell High will reimagine “the global smash hit movie with some characters you already know, and a whole lot more you will soon meet”.
“It’s still the 1950s, a world that rocks with big musical numbers from the period combined with new original songs as well,” the network said in a statement.
“It’s 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.”
HBO Max head of original content Sarah Aubrey said: “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. You’re the One That I Want!”
