 • Matt Cornett as E.J.
Nini's new love interest E.J. is the completely confident son of two corporate lawyers, who secretly feels the pressure of living up to his picture-perfect social media persona.

 • Frankie Rodriguez as Carlos
As captain of the color guard and student choreographer, Carlos thinks of Miss Jenn as a peer. In fact, he eats lunch in her office and has been drinking espresso since third grade. And of course, Carlos already has his Tony Awards speech memorized.

Big Red is the quintessential skater boy, always fuzzy and sleep deprived. He's weirdly devastated by Ricky and Nini's split, as he's been their third wheel forever.

 • Kate Reinders as Miss Jenn
Miss Jenn is a new drama teacher who believes musicals can save lives. She may experience imposter syndrome, but she'd do anything for her students.

 • Mark St. Cyr as Mr. Mazzara
East High's somewhat stiff S.T.E.M. teacher Mr. Mazzara believes in preparing students for the future, which leads him to butt heads with the daydreaming Miss Jenn.

The Unforgiving

I'm disgusted. This will be a soapy high(?) school drama with cringey musical numbers. All we wanted was the old cast back for a reunion.

Sofia's character sounds like Buffy from Andi Mack but with musical theater instead of sports as her background.

This doesn't looks as tragic as I expected it to be. Might be fun to watch actually.

The trailer actually looks pretty good. :toofunny3: I've seen a lot of people on Twitter being shook at how decent it looks. I'm 100% watching.

I need Disney to start hiring dark skinned women their teen shows. It's always a light skin girl who gets the role on this kids show.
