There some exciting news for the Chad and Taylor stans out there: the High School Musical stars are set to reunite as love interests once more.

Corbin Bleu (who played Chad Danforth in the Disney Channel trilogy) and Monique Coleman (Taylor McKessie) are the stars of the upcoming holiday flick A Christmas Dance Reunion.

Produced by the American cable channel Lifetime, known for the slew of holiday films they put out every year for their 'It's a Wonderful Lifetime' series, A Christmas Dance Reunion sees the former HSM stars play childhood dance partners.

"Successful attorney Lucy Mortimer (Coleman), along with her mother Virginia (Kim Roberts), return to the Winterleigh Resort to help celebrate the hotel's final Christmas season before the resort closes its doors permanently," Lifetime's description reads.

"Once there, Lucy is reunited with the owner's nephew and her childhood Christmas Dance partner, Barrett Brewster (Bleu)."

While financial hardship made the resort decide not to run the traditional Christmas dance, Lucy is set on keeping it alive. But she is going to have to choose whether or not she wants to partner up with Barrett once more for what could be the last Christmas Dance.

The network also announced another reunion: former Brady Bunch stars Barry Williams, Christopher Knight, Mike Lookinland, Susan Olsen, Jennifer Elise Cox and Robbie Rist will team up for Blending Christmas.

The film will star Haylie Duff as Emma, who learns that the resort where she used to spend Christmases with her family is being redeveloped. Her boyfriend Liam (Aaron O'Connell), who is planning to propose, decides to bring her to the resort one last time to ask the big question.

As part of his plan, he invites both their families which leaves Emma "delighted when she arrives to find the whole family bunch there."

In perfect Christmas tradition, the two families start "bickering over every detail" and the tension that arises will lead Emma and Liam to question the strength of their relationship.
