Popular Nickelodeon sitcom Zoey 101 is getting a sequel film at Paramount+ called Zoey 102, and the majority of original cast members are back.
Following the huge success of the iCarly reboot, Paramount+ has announced a sequel to Zoey 101, which will take the form of a feature film. The series followed teenager Zoey Brooks as she navigated high school with her quirky friends at PCA.
The show was one of a series of hit teen sitcoms created by Dan Schnieder. In iCarly star Jennette McCurdy’s brilliant 2022 memoir I’m Glad My Mom Died, she made several shocking allegations against somebody she refers to as “The Creator”. Alexa Nikolas, who was a regular in the first series of Zoey 101, has likewise protested against child abuse at Nickelodeon.
Like the iCarly reboot, it seems as though Schnieder has no involvement with the new film.
Zoey 102 will see the characters reunite for a wedding, though the character tying the knot is being kept under wraps.
It seems things are quite acrimonious behind the scenes. Paul Butcher, who played Zoey’s brother Dustin, posted a condemning video on his TikTok. Victoria Justice and Elvis star Austin Butler aren’t returning either, though as of yet neither of them have spoken about it publicly.
However, most of the series regulars are returning – Jamie Lynn Spears as Zoey, Erin Sanders as Quinn, Sean Flynn as Chase, Christopher Massey as Michael, Matthew Underwood as Logan, Abbey Wilde as Stacey and Jack Salvatore as Mark Del Figgalo.
Nancy Hower will direct from a screenplay by Monica Sherer and Madeline Whitby, both of whom were regular writers for the latest iteration of All That, the Nickelodeon sketch show in which Lynn Spears first found fame.
Spears said in a statement that “I’m beyond thrilled to be back alongside my PCA family and continue the story of Zoey and all the characters fans know and love. As an executive producer, it’s been an exciting opportunity to work with such incredible talent as well as Paramount+ and Nickelodeon”.
Zoey 102 is currently in production and will land on Paramount+ in the second half of 2023.
