After two seasons on the bubble, NBC has officially cancelled Zoey’s Extraordinary Playlist. The musical dramedy series starred Jane Levy as Zoey Clarke, a programmer living in San Francisco who is suddenly able to hear the innermost wants, thoughts, and desires of the people around her through popular songs.
Although Zoey’s Extraordinary Playlist may not have been been a ratings juggernaut for NBC, the series does have a devoted fanbase, and while there was talk of the series moving to the Peacock streaming service for a third season, that wound up falling through. Lionsgate Television, who co-produces the series, hasn’t given up and are looking to shop the series to other outlets. “In a world where finding loyal and passionate audiences is never easy, we believe there must be a home for this great, award-winning show with a passionate and dedicated following,” the Lionsgate spokesperson said. In addition to Jane Levy, Zoey’s Extraordinary Playlist also starred Alex Newell, Skylar Astin, John Clarence Stewart, Mary Steenburgen, Andrew Leeds, Alice Lee, Michael Thomas Grant, Kapil Talwalkar, Lauren Graham, and Harvey Guillén.
Any Zoey’s Extraordinary Playlist fans out there sad to see the series get the axe?
