An Old Nickelodeon TV Show is Coming Back


Emily Eigenbrode

Zoey 102 will return with a lot of the same main characters  


It’s official, Zoey 101 is coming back for a long-awaited sequel in the form of a movie. The Nickelodeon series came out on January 5, 2005, and became very popular among 2000s kids. The movie will star Jamie Lynn Spears (Zoey) and several members of the original cast. 


Zoey 101 came out 18 years ago this year and ran for four seasons. The show was immensely popular, but in May 2008 it was time for fans to say goodbye to the show. The show left off in a good place, however, fans still wanted more. In this movie, we will get an update on the couples that may or may not still be together. Perhaps the one fans are most eagerly awaiting for is Zoey and Chase Matthews’s (Sean Flynn) relationship update. 


The movie will be called Zoey 102 and it has been announced that a few original members will not be returning. Many cast members had traumatic experiences with Dan Schneider, who was the creator of the series. There has been a lot of controversy about Dan Schneider for many different reasons and on many different shows. Alexa Nikolas, who played Nicole Bristow in the show, was one of the first to protest against the production.


Below contains the list of actors that WILL NOT be in the sequel:

  • Paul Butcher as Dustin Brooks
  • Kristin Herrera as Dana Cruz
  • Alexa Nikolas as Nicole Bristow
  • Victoria Justice as Lola Martinez
  • Austin Butler as James Garret

Even though many original characters will not be returning to the show, there are still a lot of actors that will be returning in the sequel. It appears almost all of the main characters in the show will be returning. 

Below contains the list of actors that WILL be in the sequel: 

  • Jamie Lynn Spears as Zoey Brooks
  • Erin Sanders as Quinn Pensky
  • Sean Flynn as Chase Matthews
  • Matthew Underwood as Logan Reese
  • Christopher Massey as Michael Barret
  • Abby Wilde as Stacey Dillsen
  • Jack Salvatore as Mark Del Figgalo

Jamie Lynn Spears was one of the first people to announce that she was coming back for the movie. She stated in an interview, “I am beyond thrilled to be back alongside my PCA family and continue the story of Zoey and all the characters that fans know and love. As executive producer, it has been an exciting opportunity to work with such incredible talent, as well as Paramount+ and Nickelodeon.”

The exact release date is unknown as of now, but most likely it will be available within the next few months. The sequel is in production and many cast members have shared pictures from the set. Paramount plus is the only streaming platform that will have the rights to this movie. Therefore, it may be hard to watch if you don’t have that streaming service. 

We don’t know much about what will happen at the reunion, but we do know that they will reunite for a wedding. In 2015, several years after the show ended, a special episode was released where Chase watched the DVD that Zoey buried in her time capsule. He confessed his love to her, so we think that this will be the two characters’ love reunion, or they will be the ones to carry out the wedding. 

Zoey 102 is a highly anticipated movie coming out this year. The now older 2000s kids are very excited to relive a once-favorite tv show. Fans are really curious to see how this new movie is going to go and how the relationships will be now almost 20 years later. Are you excited for the new Zoey 102 movie?
