• Five budding actors were tapped to play supporting roles in the “Grease” prequel
  • Charlotte Kavanagh, who appeared in “Descendants 2,” will play the role of Rosemary
  • Filming for the Paramount+ limited series is ongoing in Vancouver

While filming for “Grease: Rise of the Pink Ladies” is currently underway in Vancouver, Canada, five new supporting cast members have been named.

Paramount+ just rounded out the supporting cast for the upcoming “Grease” prequel series, and five budding stars were tapped to portray the minor roles, Deadline exclusively revealed this week.

Charlotte Kavanagh (“Descendants 2”), Josette Halpert (“The Other Kingdom”), Nicholas McDonough, Maximo Weber Salas and Alexis Sides were named as the latest additions to the musical series.

The show will feature Kavanagh as Rosemary, Halpert as Dot, McDonough as Gil, Salas as “Shy Guy” and Sides as a character nicknamed “Potato.”

The five actors are joining the previously announced cast members led by Marisa Davila as Jane, Cheyenne Isabel Wells as Olivia, Ari Notartomaso as Cynthia, Shanel Bailey as Hazel and Tricia Fukuhara as Nancy.

Also starring in the limited series are Madison Thompson as Susan, Jason Schmidt as Buddy, Jonathan Nieves as Richie, Chris McNally as Mr. Daniels and Jackie Hoffman as Assistant Principal McGee.

As previously reported, the 10-episode series will be set in Rydell High, years before the events that took place in the 1978 movie that starred Olivia Newton-John and John Travolta.

The official description for the upcoming show did not reveal much about the plot, but it did indicate that the series will focus on “four fed-up outcasts” — presumably the founders of the Pink Ladies — as they decide to break the mold and have fun on their own terms on the campus.

“Grease: The Rise of the Pink Ladies” is written, executive produced and showrun by series creator Annabel Oakes. Adam Fishbach, Marty Bowen and Alethea Jones are executive producing. Jones will also be directing the pilot and two more episodes, according to Collider.

The series will feature original music from Grammy-nominated songwriter and producer Justin Tranter, who worked with several big names in the music scene, including Lady Gaga, Dua Lipa and The Chicks.

“Grease: The Rise of the Pink Ladies” does not have a premiere date yet. But it is expected to debut on Paramount+ later this year.
