Joshua Bassett does not follow Olivia Rodrigo ahead of HSMTMTS season 3

High School Musical: The Musical: The Series star, Joshua Bassett, stops following co-star Olivia Rodrigo on Instagram before filming for season 3.

Joshua Bassett has stopped following his co-star, Olivia Rodrigo, on Instagram prior to the filming on High School Musical: The Musical: The Series season 3. High School Musical: Series premiered at Disney + on November 8, 2019 and is a spin-off of the popular Disney Channel original film, High School Musical. The series follows East High Schools drama club on their journey to staging High School Musical: The Musical. Starring Rodrigo, Bassett, Matt Cornett, Sofia Wylie and Larry Saperstein, the series explores the friendships, relationships, struggles and triumphs that come with being part of a high school drama club.


Recordings for HSMTMTS season 3 starts sometime this month. The series will see many of the original cast repeat their roles, including Rodrigo, who recently confirmed her return despite rumors that she would not return. News of Bassett and Rodrigo’s upcoming reunion on the set of season 3 aroused curiosity after the two expressed some hostility towards each other. Although it has never been confirmed by any of the stars, fans have largely speculated that the two were involved in a messy love triangle that inspired Rodrigo’s song “Drivers License”. Bassett confirmed that the two have not spoken to each other for some time, and he recently gave another hint of trouble between the two.

As reported by Pop Crave, Bassett seems to have stopped following Rodrigo on Instagram shortly before High School Musical: Series starts filming. Viewers were quick to respond to the observation, with some criticizing Bassett for the action, while others felt the gesture was insignificant. It’s not uncommon for individuals to stop following each other on social media, but unfollowing combined with the rumors surrounding the two, arouses curiosity around season 3, and if the footage can be a little awkward for the two.

Much has changed for both Bassett and Rodrigo since the beginning HSMTMTS. Rodrigo has achieved great success in her singing career and has become famous after the release of her album Angry. Her debut single “Drivers License” topped the charts for weeks and aroused great interest High School Musical: Series fans. A rumor has circulated that the song is about Rodrigo and co-star Bassett, who is rumored to have dated and turned up. The closest that has come to either talking about the rumored relationship is when Bassett revealed that he had not spoken to Rodrigo since “Drivers License” came out. Some explanation was given for the lack of communication, but the inconsistency suggests that the interruption between the two continues.

It’s always hard to decipher what an unfollowing on social media means. It could potentially be a sign of getting ahead, disconnecting, or maybe even someone just clearing up their list of followers. Bassett’s unfollowing could indicate a certain enmity between the two or could be a very natural shift between two friends. Like her High School Musical: Series character, Rodrigo’s growth in her singing career means more difficulty in balancing her acting career. Not talking for a year and stopping following each other can just be a completely natural side effect of Rodrigo moving into another phase of his life. But the timing of the conclusion raises questions about whether there is substance in the rumors, or whether Bassett and Rodrigo simply play into the mention the rumors have rejected. Whatever it means not following, Rodrigo and Bassett can hopefully look past any difficulties and can continue to enjoy their time asHigh School Musical: The Musical: The Series season 3 filming begins.
