Zoey Brooks and her friends are officially back in “Zoey 102.” The film, which premiered on Paramount+ on July 27, serves as a sequel to Nickelodeon’s hit series “Zoey 101.” The original show starred Jamie Lynn Spears as a teenage girl named Zoey who attends a fictional boarding school called Pacific Coast Academy, where she befriends classmates like Chase Matthews (Sean Flynn), Quinn Pensky (Erin Sanders), and Michael Barret (Christopher Massey). Now, 15 years after the series ended in 2008, the original cast have returned to reprise their roles in “Zoey 102,” which sees the PCA students reunite to attend Quinn and Logan’s wedding.
The film is sure to give closure to original fans of the series. Since the show ended with Zoey and Chase finally becoming a couple, viewers craved another season of “Zoey 101” to see the pair’s relationship blossom, but it never happened. In 2015, Flynn and Massey reunited for a “Zoey 101” short involving their characters opening a time capsule. The cast then teased a possible revival of the show in 2020 by appearing in an “All That” sketch, as well as a music video for the show’s theme song, “Follow Me.” Flash forward to 2023, and our favorite PCA students are finally together again in “Zoey 102.”
Since it’s been so long since we’ve seen the “Zoey 101” cast, here’s what they looked like during their time on the Nickelodeon show versus now.
