It has been shared that “Zoey 102” is coming out in the future, on Paramount Plus. Expected at the end of 2023, is the official release date.
Students in high school still rave about the show and state it as their favorite childhood TV show when asked.
Makayla Harvey, freshman, enjoys the show. “Zoey 101 is very funny, interesting, and relatable, especially being in highschool. Lots of drama occurs which obviously highschoolers can relate too. It’s probably my favorite childhood TV show. I like how it’s similar to ICarly and Victorious,” said Harvy.
Hannah Culp, freshman, agrees with Harvey. “It was cool that she went to boarding school and got to live on her own with her friends at the beach. I wish that I could have a high school experience like that, it’s almost like being at a college. It seems like such a fun experience and much better than being at a regular highschool. The drama and comedy in the show makes it entertaining,” said Culp.
Zoey 101 is favored by many and students still go back and rewatch it.
