It's official: A Grease spin-off series is in the works

Grease is the word, once again.

Grease TV spin-off is officially in the works.


According to EW, the musical series Grease: Rydell High has been given a series order at HBO's streaming service, HBO Max.

Inspired by the iconic film starring John Travolta and Olivia Newton-John, the series will be set in the 1950s when “the Pink Ladies and the T-Birds still rule the school."

And the series will have a mix of  “some characters you already know, and a whole lot more you will soon meet.”

The description of the series continued:


"It’s still the 1950s, a world that rocks with big musical numbers from the period combined with new original songs as well.

"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.”

Sarah Aubrey, head of original content at HBO Max, 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!
