If you grew up a gay boy in the mid-2000s, then you definitely remember how much of a heartthrob actor Zac Efron was (and still is)!

His breakout role in Disney Channel's smash hit movie High School Musical quickly launched him into the spotlight, and although he's done a bunch of great parts in films like The Greatest Showman, Hairspray, and 17 Again, we'd be lying if we said we don't miss his Troy Bolton days. But it's a lucky day for HSM stans because apparently, Efron is set to be a part in an upcoming cast reunion!

According to a report in Deadline, director, choreographer, and mastermind behind the iconic musical franchise Kenny Ortega just confirmed that the original cast of the film series—Vanessa Hudgens, Ashley Tisdale, Corbin Bleu, Monique Coleman, Lucas Grabeel, and Zac Efron himself—will all be participating in ABC's The Disney Family Singalong, which is set to air on Thursday, April 16!

"We couldn’t reach Zac until late but when we did, he immediately jumped in, of course," Ortega told Deadline about getting Efron to join the ABC singalong special at the last minute. "Everyone we reached out to was quick—and you’ll see it in their spirit and the way they come together from their homes. They recognize this is an opportunity to strengthen spirits for those joining us for the broadcast."

While an HSM cast reunion already happened in 2016 to mark the film's 10th anniversary, Efron was noticeably absent from the get-together—something that broke many hearts in the fandom.

But this new reunion, which is coming at a time where we all desperately need something to look forward to, is surely going to make up for it! After all...
