The new season of High School Musical: The Musical: The Series premieres July 27 on Disney+, which sees the return of Disney Channel veterans Corbin Blue and Jason Earle.

Speaking to ABC Audio, the two said it was a no-brainer for them to be part of the beloved series. “It’s very smartly done,” noted Bleu, who is playing against himself this season. Earles, who will play Camp Commandant Dewey Wood, added, “It’s the hottest show on TV.”

Both actors also praised the show’s “incredibly talented and hardworking” young cast for teaching them valuable lessons.

“I’ve learned to find the organic love of performance within myself,” said Bleu, who admits to being “such a perfectionist.” He said the young actors helped him get away from that mentality.

“They just take a guitar [and] start singing. They just dance. This love of performance as a form of expression is such a great reminder of what he can do,” the Broadway star said. Bleu added that the young cast helped him play “in a way that I don’t think I’ve ever done before”, which “gave me a number.

“They’re very free. They’re very uninhibited,” Earles admitted. “It almost makes you throw your inhibitions out the window.” Earles also called out one star in particular.

“One actor who constantly blew me away no matter what he did in a scene was Sofia Wylie,” the Hannah Montana the alum said as Blue nodded. “She’s our youngest cast member, and she would make these choices that made my head explode…and I would be moved to tears at her performance.”

High School Musical: The Musical: The Series Season 3 premieres Wednesday, July 27 on Disney+.
