TV Channel HBO have revealed plans to turned the much loved movie musical 'Grease' into a TV show!

The spinoff series will be called 'Grease: Rydell High' and will follow a different set of characters in the same iconic high school.

"It’s still the 1950s, a world that rocks with big musical numbers from the period combined with new original songs as well." HBO says.

"It’s the peer pressures of high school, the horrors of puberty, and the rollercoaster of life in middle America with a modern sensibility that will bring it to life for today’s musical lovers."

Grease is an iconic pop-culture phenomenon that works for every generation... This is high school and life in small-town USA told on the scale of a big rock ’n’ roll musical. It’s Grease 2.0 but with the same spirit, energy and excitement you immediately think of when you hear any of these iconic songs."

We don't currently have a release date for the show, but we're sure a lot of Grease fans will be excited for this one!
