Grease: Rise of the Pink Ladies is set to star the following:

— Marisa Davila as Jane
— Cheyenne Isabel Wells as Olivia
— Johnathan Nieves as Richie
— Ari Notartomaso as Cynthia
— Jason Schmidt as Buddy
— Tricia Fukuhara as Nancy
— Shanel Bailey as Hazel
— Madison Thompson as Susan
— Maxwell Whittington-Cooper as Wally
— Jackie Hoffman as Asst. Principal McGee

The musical series takes place four years before the original Grease, before rock 'n' roll ruled, before the T-Birds were the coolest in the school, when four fed-up outcasts dare to have fun on their own terms, sparking a moral panic that will change Rydell High forever. 

Creator, Executive Producer, and Writer Annabel Oakes (Atypical, Transparent) will serve as showrunner. Alethea Jones (Made For Love, Dollface, Evil) will direct the pilot plus two more episodes and will executive produce. 

"We are thrilled to unveil our new original series that will introduce an incredible cast of young stars in the making and electrifying musical numbers you will fall in love with," said Nicole Clemens, President, Paramount Television Studios & Paramount+ Original Scripted Series.  "Annabel and Alethea have managed to brilliantly capture the spirit of the iconic beloved classic film which, like Rise of the Pink Ladies, is both set in the past but relevant to the present."

The 10-episode season will be available to stream on Paramount+ later this year.

Stream the series premiere of Grease: Rise of the Pink Ladies on Thursday, April 6 on Paramount+.
