The show is set at Sebastian High School, a fictional high school located in Santa Barbara, California, and the story revolves around Payton Hobart, who is the contender for the student body president, and he is up against River Barkley, a very popular and athletic student in the school.

According to the latest updates, the upcoming season won’t be ‘musical’ and this will come as a big disappointment for the fans. The official story of season 2 is yet to be revealed, however, it is expected to continue the story from the finale of season 1, and it will dive deep into the character of Payton as he will decide the type of politician he is going to be. Rumors also say that his mother will do something that will cause major trouble to Payton’s plans, and things will get interesting between them.
