Will Zoey's Extraordinary Playlist get a season 3? Fans want more from NBC


As Zoey’s Extraordinary Playlist approaches the end of its sophomore season, fans of the NBC show are wanting to know if it will return for season 3.

Will there be Zoey’s Extraordinary Playlist season 3?

  • Unconfirmed.

As of yet, it has not been confirmed by NBC that Zoey’s Extraordinary Playlist will return for season 3.

The upcoming 13th episode of season 2 (16 May 2021) is entitled Zoey’s Extraordinary Goodbye. This might lead you to think season 2 episode 13 is the end of the NBC musical series. However, in an interview, Skylar Astin said: “I think audiences will definitely be left wanting a season 3 (after watching the last episode).”

Zoey’s Extraordinary Playlist fans demand season 3

Although NBC has yet to confirm whether to greenlight Zoey’s Extraordinary Playlist for season 3, the fans are outright demanding it.

Zoey’s Extraordinary Playlist topped USA Today’s 24th annual Save Our Shows poll, winning 52% of the votes.

Fans have also taken to Twitter to share their desires for a third season. One fan tweeted: “@nbc Please hear our pleas and green light #ZoeysPlaylist Season 3!”
