The UK welcomed Disney+ plus with open arms when it finally arrived on March 24. It couldn’t have come at a better time, helping many take a much needed break from the current news cycle. The highly anticipated streaming platform launched with over 500 films spanning Disney, Marvel, and Pixar and more than 300 TV series including an exciting roster of never-seen-before shows. So, as many of the UK residents' current daily activities include watching heaps of television, what is the schedule for Disney + TV series?
Well, along with their classics (anyone else re-watching Cinderella?), Disney has launched its new streaming platform with 14 original series, including High School Musical: The Musical: The Series and The World According To Jeff Goldblum, a documentary series where arguably the world's most stylish actor investigates everything from coffee to video games to denim and more. All episodes for these series were available on launch, providing a great deal of marathon-watching material. For the majority of these, episodes are released weekly every Friday at 8am.
What Is The Viewing Schedule for High School Musical: The Musical: The Series?
It’s hard to believe that the original High School Musical movie franchise featuring a young Zac Efron and his seriously strong fringe is now 15-years-old. Disney+ has given it a present-day reboot with a whole new Gen-Z cast. The 10-part series sees a group of East High theatre kids take on the legendary roles of Troy, Gabriella and the rest of the original characters in, well… a high school musical (hence the very long title). High School Musical: The Musical: The Series premiered on March 24 and a brand new “song-filled” episode is released weekly on Fridays at 8pm.
