HBO orders an upcoming ‘Grease’ spinoff

As you might expect, HBO Max is expanding its lineup of TV shows and movies. Now, a spin-off series of the 1978 John Travolta classic Grease is coming soon.

Grease: Rydell High will be an upcoming series set in the 1950s at Rydell High, the same school that was in the original movie. Besides the famous characters of Danny and Sandy, new characters will be introduced. “We’re going to build out the world of this show which everybody loves, in that musical style, and build basically a ‘High Shcool Musical’ kind of experience that will be a big fun rock and roll musical,” says Bob Greenblatt, a chairman for WarnerMedia Entertainment, in a recent press conference.

There will be huge musical numbers, mixing new songs with old ones. But it appears the licenses to iconic songs like “Grease Lightning” and “Summer Nights” are being held by Jim Jacobs and Warren Casey estate; they are the original composers of the songs. SO the show may go on without the classic songs.

Stay tuned for more news and casting calls on the upcoming spin-off as the show developers.
