Grease: Rise of the Pink Ladies Release Date
Initially, the musical series was called Grease: Rydell High. The title was given to it at the time of its announcement in 2019. However, in May 2020, the title was changed to Grease: Rise of the Pink Ladies and the release date was set in 2021.
The date was pushed back as HBO, the initial producing company, backed away from working on the series. A contract was then drawn up with Paramount+ who issued an order for a ten-episode season. The President of the company expressed her excitement saying,
“We are thrilled to unveil our new original series that will introduce an incredible cast of young stars in the making and electrifying musical numbers you will fall in love with.”
Filming for the series began 2 days ago on January 31, 2022. Thus, the release date will probably be somewhere in late 2022. Fans will most likely enjoy the series before the end of this year.
This upcoming prequel takes place 4 years before Grease 1 came out. The official synopsis reads,
“Before rock ‘n’ roll ruled and before the T-Birds were the coolest in the school. It follows four fed-up outcasts who dare to have fun on their own terms, sparking a moral panic that will change Rydell High forever.”
Set in 1954, this musical romantic comedy series will feature lots of drama and stomach hurting laughter. After all, nobody does drama better than the Pink Ladies.
