Zoey Brooks and her ‘Zoey 101’ buddies are all grown up and back in action.
Paramount+ announced Thursday that it has begun production on “Zoe 102,” the film adaptation of the popular Nickelodeon television series that ran from 2005 to 2008.
“It’s official!” Jamie Lynn Spears, who starred as Brooks on the series, said in an Instagram post when the news was announced.
The feature film follows the adult version of Pacific Coast Academy graduates who reunite at a wedding. Her members Erin Sanders, Sean Flynn, Matthew Underwood, Christopher Massey, Abby Wilde, and Jack Salvatore from the original “Zoe” cast are also set to play their respective roles in the sequel.
Victoria Justice or Golden Globe winner Austin Butler weren’t among the returning alums mentioned in the press release announcing the project on Thursday.
Discussions about bringing back “Zoe” for fans have been going on for some time.
“The conversation is definitely happening,” Spears told CNN in 2020, adding, “I don’t want to announce something just for the sake of announcing something.”
Spears’ feature film debut came in 2002 when she played a younger version of her sister and pop music icon Britney Spears in “Crossroads.”
Spears will serve as executive producer on the film.
The Zoey 102 is set to premiere at Paramount+ later this year.
