What is the information related to Zoey’s Extraordinary Playlist Movie?
The show is not over yet for Zoey’s Extraordinary Playlist! And it’s all thanks to Roku.
EW has learned that a canceled show is in negotiations to air a movie on The Roku Channel. It will be 2 hours long, and it will premiere around the holidays. The full cast, including Jane and Skylar, should come back. But the deals for them are not finished yet.
Deadline reports that if the movie does well, it could lead to another season of the show. But we cannot talk about this now because it is too soon. This film deal is the result of Lionsgate TV trying to save the series. It was a big campaign, and they did it.
Back in June, NBC canceled the series after two seasons. But they were talking with other places about maybe moving it to a different network. They couldn’t make a deal, so Lionsgate TV sold it to another company called Roku. Austin Winsberg made a new playlist, Zoey’s Extraordinary Playlist, to try and save it. He also did a social media campaign to get people to make some noise.
What are fans expecting from Zoey’s Extraordinary Playlist Movie?
And now, thanks to Roku, Zoey’s Extraordinary Playlist fans will finally get some kind of resolution to the season 2 finale game-changing cliffhanger, which revealed that a fan-Zoey and Max, who are married, got back together again. But Max found out that he can hear other people’s thoughts and desires through songs.
We’ve been talking about Max having powers in the writer’s room since season 1. In superhero shows and the superheroes’ origin stories, there is usually a time when somebody else has the same powers as the hero. When we’re talking about the show and how it has evolved, giving the power to someone else felt like a natural evolution. You can infer from that he is being given this power for a reason, to create equity or equality in their relationship.
Season three of the show had a new movie. This makes it possible for something to happen next. It also means that there are more opportunities for what might happen to Zoey and Max’s relationship. Max gets to be in Zoey’s world. By doing this, Max might see the musical numbers differently than Zoey does. Or Max could help her by giving her his powers! It could be fun for her to take a break because she has been the one to figure everything out. It is a good chance for her because she might have some new insight now.
