Sofia Wylie Dropped Some Hints About ‘High School Musical: The Musical: The Series’ Season 3 Finale

“There’s already been so much drama this whole season, but I swear it gets 10 times more,” says the actress.

Hold on to your chairs because High School Musical: The Musical: The Series, the final two episodes of season 3 are “[It’s a] drama bomb!,”

High School Musical: The Musical: The Series star Sofia Wylie was interviewed by US Magazine where she revealed that the final two episodes are getting even messier and spicy. “There’s already been so much drama this whole season, but I swear it gets 10 times more.” The final two episodes are set to air on Wednesday, September 7, and Wednesday, September 14, respectively. 



 

The Disney+ mockumentary-style comedy follows fictional students Ricky (Joshua Bassett), Nini (Olivia Rodrigo), E.J. (Matt Cornett), Ashlyn (Julia Lester), Carlos (Frankie Rodriguez) and more as they navigate through adolescence — and the ups and downs of being a theatre kid in high school. The show is set at the now-iconic East High School Salt Lake City, the same campus where the iconic High School Musical franchise was filmed. 

Wylie, for her part, plays Gina Porter — a new student who’s ready for the spotlight. Introduced as an antagonist, the character does a complete 180 over time — something the Andi Mack alum appreciates about the role. Her role talks about the changes she had been experiencing all this while and also about the love triangle she got stuck between boyfriend E.J. and longtime crush Ricky.



 

“I think my favorite part [of playing Gina] is how unpredictable is, or how human she is,” the Arizona native explained to Us. “Because as humans we are very unpredictable, and a lot of times in television or in movies, characters can become very stereotypical because we like to put people in boxes. But in the real world, we are all so malleable and changeable and we grow and we fall.

“I think Gina is confused right now. I think she’s fighting really hard to make this relationship with E.J. work and she wants that,” the Shook alum revealed to Us. “I think she really is falling for E.J., and that’s why she gets so easily frustrated or angered or upset when she feels as though he’s pulling away or he’s distracted. Because she wants this to work, and she really does care for him,” she further added. 



 

She discussed the love triangle she is in in the show and spill some beans around the same. While Wylie said that E.J. is “a great guy” and is “trying his best,” the actress admitted that there is still a dynamic with 21-year-old Bassett’s Ricky that leaves Gina in a difficult position. “Ricky is in a confused state where he’s put in this position of liking a girl who is not available at the moment,” she explained. “And that’s kind of where Gina was in season 2, so he’s definitely now probably understanding how she felt.”

She added, “I think these three characters are all just being pulled in so many different directions and I don’t think any of them know where it’s headed.”

High School Musical: The Musical: The Series airs on Wednesdays on Disney+.
