It seems East High is set to experience a real challenge in the future. Derek Hough, champion of  Dancing With The Stars, is joining High School Musical: The Musical: The Series on the Disney+ channel.

As dance fans will know, Derek has been a champion on Dancing With the Stars on six occasions and also acts as a judge on World of Dance. Now his fans will get to see him in the popular musical series.

Derek Hough joins season 2 of ‘High School Musical: The Musical: The Series’

While Hough’s fans will be pleased to see him on the Disney+ show,  students at East High are likely to have their work cut out. Derek’s character will be working in the drama department of North High, their biggest rival. However, a little competition never did anyone any harm.

Hough will be playing the role of Zack, Miss Jenn’s (Kate Reinders) former boyfriend. Deadline describes his character as a “charming but sneaky actor.” Zack has returned to Salt Lake to become a drama teacher at the school. Things can only get interesting from there on!
