Set in 1954 – four years before the hit 1978 film “Grease” – Paramount Plus’ upcoming series explores the origins of the iconic Pink Ladies and how they ended up ruling their school, Rydell High. 
The show’s main cast includes Cheyenne Isabel Wells as Olivia, Marisa Davila as Jane, Ari Notartomaso as Cynthia, Tricia Fukuhara as Nancy, Shanel Bailey as Hazel, Madison Thompson as Susan, Johnathan Nieves as Richie, Jason Schmidt as Buddy, Maxwell Whittington-Cooper as Wally and Jackie Hoffman as Asst. Principal McGee.
According to Hypebae, Notartomaso shared that the “characters will get to experience from a different lens and how those experiences overlap with others with a marginalized identity. I think we have the opportunity to represent another struggle that overlaps with things we’re dealing with today like racism.”
“Grease: Rise of the Pink Ladies” isn’t going to be the only prequel of the “Grease” cinematic universe, IndieWire reported. Paramount Pictures is currently developing “Summer Lovin,’” an original film that centers on how Sandy Olsson and Danny Zuko fell in love before the start of “Grease.”
“Grease: Rise of the Pink Ladies” will be available to stream on Paramount Plus on April 6.
