Stream is the Word: HBO Max Gives Series Order To Grease Spinoff

As the inevitable streaming wars heat up, everybody is grabbing something. Series this, movie that, if it's a movie or show people loved, it's getting nabbed. Case in point, Grease. Grease is the time, is the place, is the motion, and it's the way HBO Max is feeling. 

Per Variety, HBO Max announced today that they are giving a series order to spinoff of Grease entitled Grease: Rydell High. You might remember Rydell High as as the high school that Danny and Sandy attended in the original. Taking place in the 1950's, the series will reimagine some old characters, introduce some new characters, and have a combination of new songs and some old songs. In other words, it's exactly what you would expect a Grease show would be. 

No word yet on whether the remaining cast members will pop on the show or even when the show will arrive. Given that HBO Max launches in the spring of 2020, we imagine that they are fast tracking this one as soon as they can.
