Grease Is Still the Word: HBO Max Orders Rydell High Spinoff Series Set in the '50s
It seems like we truly can never have too much of a good thing: several months after the Grease prequel film Summer Loving was announced, HBO Max has handed out a straight-to-series order for a spinoff musical of the classic film titled Grease: Rydell High. That's right, folks - we're heading back to the hallowed halls of Rydell High, the high school at the center of all the action.

While Summer Loving will recount the terribly romantic Summer affair between John Travolta and Olivia Newton-John's characters, Danny Zuko and Sandy Olsson, Rydell High will introduce viewers to a whole host of new faces. According to The Hollywood Reporter, the series will reimagine the original movie while still being set in the '50s and feature big musical numbers from the era. It'll explore the usual topics of high-school dramas, including the horrors of puberty and peer pressures of high school.
