Posted Wednesday April 2, 2014 6:50 PM GMT

Teaming up with Lance Bass for an 'NSYNC reunion prank wasn't all Ryan Seacrest was up to on Tuesday (April 1).

The "American Idol" host also duped fans into thinking that a new "High School Musical" sequel was underway.

According to his website, " Zac Efron and Vanessa Hudgens have signed on to reprise their roles as high school sweethearts Gabriella and Troy in "High School Musical 4: The Wedding.'"

Assisting in the prank was Corbin Bleu, who reportedly tweeted, "If you liked the first three, the fourth is going to blow your mind. #getchaheadinthegame."

Unfortunately, some fanatics failed to see the last line of the story, which identified it as an April Fool's joke.
