The final chapter of this popular satire comedy-drama is going to be a musical. It will have many classic tracks from the 90s, like “This Is How We Do It.” However, some are disappointed in the final season being “the musical final season” and hampering the show’s integrity. But, it will be too soon to judge as the final season could be a blockbuster. Some fans are even intrigued to experience how the show’s satire will continue as a musical.

The trailer itself is full of touches of sarcasm.

“Senior year is going to be one for the books.”

Volume four’s trailer is bouncy and vibrant, with people dancing in the corridors, spontaneous singing, and the Varsity Show.

“That corner sketch comedy thing?” Yes, that!

“90’s musical. But Black.”

“Black ideas. Black music.”

The group is going to take up a chance to tell their story, and “there ain’t sh*t anyone can do to stop us (them).”

Will Varsity Show be a peppy hit end of the series? Few more days for the answer.
