Jamie Lynn Spears Speaks About the ‘Zoey 101’ Reboot
Jamie Lynn Spears is giving more information about the upcoming Zoey 101 reboot.
In a new interview with Nylon, she opened up about finding the perfect balance when it comes to the tone of the project.
“Obviously we want to meet her as an adult now, and I do think it should be a show for young adults,” she said. “We want to do it justice for the fans that were 10 and 12 when it first aired, while also bringing in the new generation of fans.”
“Finding that balance will be really important because we want to connect with where people are today,” she continued. “The conversations that we’re having right now are creative. ‘What is that story? What is the best way to meet Zoey today?’ We don’t want to just do it to do it. We want it to be good.”
Of course, the original series followed Zoey and her friends at Pacific Coast Academy in Malibu, California, and ran from 2005 to 2008.
The cast recently reunited for an All That sketch, which Jamie Lynn says was just to “to test the waters, and then it was like, ‘OK. It has to happen. This just has to happen.’ That’s when the conversations got serious.”
“They’ve been so loyal,” she says of her fans, “and I think in today’s world, especially where we’re living, I just wanted to put something out there that’s happy. This is reminiscent of that time, but also the modern Zoey.”
We can’t wait for this to happen!
