There is good and bad news for ZEP fans like me
‘Zoey’s Extraordinary Playlist’ has been officially canceled by NBC
There were rumors to move the show to the Peacock streaming network, but it seems as if that isn’t happening.
However, they are trying to shop the series to other outlets!
The series starred Jane Levy as Zoey Clarke, a computer coder living in San Francisco. After an unusual event, Zoey, suddenly starts to hear the innermost wants, thoughts and desires of the people around her through popular songs. IMO, it had the best dance sequences ever created for TV. Seriously, it was amazing choreography ( from MANDY MOORE!!! See Below Video) on top of some inspired vocal performances from the cast. Jane Levy, Skylar Astin, Alex Newell, John Clarence Stewart, Lauren Graham and Peter Gallagher, Mary Steenburgen, all just incredible!!! Last year, the dramedy won an Emmy for Outstanding Choreography for Scripted Programming, and Levy was nominated for her titular role at the Golden Globes.
Show creator Austin Winsberg is not going down without a fight. He took to Twitter on Wednesday to not just confirm the sad news but to mobilize “Zoey” fans to help save the show.
Okay. Here we are. The news is out. NBC/Peacock have decided not to go forward with another season. We can discuss that later. But right now I refuse to believe the show is dead. There is too much love and goodwill and the fan base is incredible. Now here is what I need.

Zoey’s Extraordinary fanbase did succeed in sending #SaveZoeysPlaylist to Twitter’s number one trending topic worldwide on June 9th.
A source said, “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.”
