School of Rock is an American musical live-action sitcom which premiered March 12, 2016 on Nickelodeon. The series, based on the 2003 film of the same name, stars Breanna Yde, Ricardo Hurtado, Jade Pettyjohn, Lance Lim, Aidan Miner, Tony Cavalero, and Jama Williamson.


Set in Austin, Texas, the series follows a group of rule-abiding students—Zack, Lawrence, Freddy, Summer and Tomika—who learn to take risks and reach new heights thanks to substitute teacher Dewey Finn, a down-on-his-luck musician who uses the language of rock and roll to inspire his class to form a secret band. Throughout the school year, these middle-school classmates find themselves navigating relationships, discovering their unknown talents and learning lessons on loyalty and friendships.
