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
, 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
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.
