Production has started on the tentatively titled Zoey 102 — a full-length original feature based on characters from Nickelodeon's live-action teen series Zoey 101

Filming is underway in North Carolina, with a premiere slated for later this year on Paramount+. The original series was initially filmed at Pepperdine University in Malibu, California, then at stages in Valencia beginning in season 3.

The film follows Pacific Coast Academy alumni as they reunite for a wedding in the present day. 

The movie will star Jamie Lynn Spears (Zoey Brooks), Erin Sanders (Quinn Pensky), Sean Flynn (Chase Matthews), Matthew Underwood (Logan Reese), Christopher Massey (Michael Barret), Abby Wilde (Stacey Dillsen) and Jack Salvatore (Mark Del Figgalo).

I'm beyond thrilled to be back alongside my PCA family and continue the story of Zoey and all the characters fans know and love, Spears said. As an executive producer, it's been an exciting opportunity to work with such incredible talent as well as Paramount+ and Nickelodeon.

Zoey 102 (working title) is directed by Nancy Hower (Saturdays, So Help Me Todd, QuickDraw) and Monica Sherer & Madeline Whitby (Betch, Drama Club, All That) wrote the script. Jamie Lynn Spears serves as executive producer along with Alexis Fisher, Hower and Sherer & Whitby. Production of ZOEY 102 (working title) for Nickelodeon Studios is overseen by Zack Olin and Shauna Phelan, co-heads of Nickelodeon and Awesomeness Live-Action. Linda Halder serves as Nickelodeon's executive in charge of production.

The YA movie Zoey 102 (working title) is based on characters from the popular series Zoey 101, which debuted on Nickelodeon in January 2005. 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 in a boarding school. The original Nickelodeon series was created by Dan Schneider.

Zoey 102 (working title) joins Paramount+'s growing lineup of YA content, including the service's hit iCARLY series revival, which was renewed for a third season, as well as the recently released film HONOR SOCIETY, starring Angourie Rice (Spider-Man: No Way Home, Mare of Easttown) and Gaten Matarazzo (Stranger Things). Both projects were also produced by Paramount's Nickelodeon and Awesomeness Live-Action Studios.
