The original series follows Zoey Brooks as she enrolls in Pacific Coast Academy, a school that previously only allowed boys to attend. Throughout the series, Zoey and her friends navigate life as teenagers in a boarding school.

Zoey 102 will follow Pacific Coast Academy alumni, including Jamie Lynn Spears (Zoey Brooks), Erin Sanders (Quinn Pensky), Sean Flynn (Chase Matthews), Matthew Underwood (Logan Reese), Christopher Massey (Michael Barret), Abby Wilde (Stacey Dillsen), and Jack Salvatore (Mark Del Figgalo), as they reunite for a wedding in the present day.

Production is underway now in North Carolina, and the movie is slated to premiere later this year exclusively on Paramount+.

On the big news, star Jamie Lynn Spears said, “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 directed by Nancy Hower (Saturdays, So Help Me Todd, QuickDraw) and Monica Sherer & Madeline Whitby (Betch, Drama Club, All That) wrote the script. Jamie Lynn Spears serves as Executive Producer along with Alexis Fisher, Hower, and Sherer & Whitby.

Production of Zoey 102 for Nickelodeon Studios is overseen by Zack Olin and Shauna Phelan, Co-Heads of Nickelodeon & Awesomeness Live-Action. Linda Halder serves as Nickelodeon’s Executive in Charge of Production.

Zoey 102  joins Paramount+’s growing lineup of YA content, including the service’s hit iCarly series revival, which was renewed for a third season, as well as the recently released film, Honor Society, starring Angourie Rice (Spider-Man: No Way Home, Mare of Easttown) and Gaten Matarazzo (Stranger Things). Both projects were also produced by Paramount’s Nickelodeon and Awesomeness Live-Action Studios.

Stay tuned for more updates on Zoey 102, coming soon to Paramount+.
