ZOEY BROOKS RETURNS

Jamie Lynn Spears returns as Zoey Brooks, who graduated alongside the first female class ever to be allowed into Pacific Coast Academy. Erin Sanders returns as Zoey’s best friend, Quinn Pensky. Sean Flynn returns as Zoey’s on-again, off-again love interest, Chase Matthews. Also returning are Matthew Underwood, as Logan Reese; Christopher Massey, as Michael Barret; Abby Wilde, as Stacey Dillsen; and Jack Salvatore, as Mark Del Figgalo.
The wedding reunion includes new cast members: Thomas Lennon, as Zoey’s boss Kelly Kevyn; Owen Thiele as Zoey’s friend Archer March; and Dean Geyer, as a charismatic actor, Todd.

The YA movie ZOEY 102 is based on characters from the iconic series “Zoey 101,” which debuted on Nickelodeon in January 2005, and quickly emerged as one of the top live-action kids’ series on all of television. The 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 at a boarding school. The original Nickelodeon series was created by Dan Schneider.
