A teen drama that features rock, roll and a dash of the musical has been renewed for a second season.
The critically-acclaimed series, starring Alyssa Milano, was created by former The X Factor judge, Amanda Dobbins.
The series, which also stars Michaela Watkins and Olivia Wilde, is based on the novel by Yossi Benayoun, which focuses on a group of teens who are thrown together by a car accident.
In an interview with Variety, producer Julie Klausner said the new season of the series is the “most critically acclaimed show we’ve ever made.”
“I think it’s going to be very different, and that’s really what we’re all looking forward to, is that,” Klausner told Variety.
“It’s going back to its roots.”
The show’s first season was canceled following a tumultuous second season, which focused on the teens’ relationship with a therapist.
“This is the first time we’ve been able to do a whole season, a really complete season, of a rock and roll show,” Klausners said.
“And it’s really exciting.”
The first season of Rock and Roll: The Musical premiered in October 2016.
The show was written and directed by Alyssalyn Glynn.
“We had to tell the story of what happens in our lives that doesn’t always happen to us,” she told Variety, adding that the show’s characters are “very sensitive.”
“We all had to wrestle with those issues,” she said.
The Rock and Rock series follows a group, consisting of teens in a suburban New Jersey town who decide to make rock and play together in order to escape from the daily problems of high school.
“They don’t go to parties, they don’t make out, they’re very introspective and they all have their own demons,” Klausers said.
“‘Rock and Play’ is all about the kids having a good time, playing together and doing their own thing.”
Rock and play will premiere in January 2019.
The original Rock and Ball, a musical that starred John Candy and Elton John, premiered in 2007.
It starred John Stamos, Will Ferrell, Tina Fey and Amy Poehler.
In 2017, Fox renewed Rock and ball for a fourth season, but canceled the show after two seasons.
