HSMTMTS Season 3 Will Give Olivia Rodrigo’s Nini A 

In the Disney+ trailer for High School Musical: The Musical: The Series Season 3, Olivia Rodrigo’s Nini tells Miss 

Jenn, “It feels like these last few years have been leading up to something big.” Just as her character ended Season 2 with an 

opportunity to grow her songwriting career in Los Angeles, Rodrigo has similarly experienced her own offscreen 

meteoric rise to fame with the release of 2021’s Sour, which later earned her three Grammys. Given the demands

of the actor’s real-life musical superstardom, Nini will have a much smaller presence in HSMTMTS Season 3, appearing only in a recurring guest role.

As explained in the July 27 Season 3 premiere, Nini’s East High Wildcat pals were all heading to California’s Camp Shallow Lake 

sleepaway camp — but she ultimately decided not to join them. During a visit with Miss Jenn (Kate Reinders), Nini 

revealed that she was going to SoCal for the summer with her moms instead, though she was sad to miss out on camp. 

Meanwhile, she also worried that the family trip might be too disruptive to her life and musical 

aspirations, but Miss Jenn assured her that a little disruption could be her ticket to feeling inspired to create music again.
