Who could ever forget the star of ‘Zoey 101′? Jamie Lynn Spears stole the hearts of kids across the states when her Nickelodeon show premiered in 2005 — and upset them when the show ended in 2008 right after she announced her pregnancy at the age of 16. Despite fans’ belief that her firstborn daughter, Maddie, is the reason why the believed series ended the former teen star denies such rumors.
While Jamie is mostly known for the wildly popular Nick show, it may surprise fans to learn that her acting roots began on the same show as several of the previously-mentioned actors: ‘All That’. That’s right: Jamie appeared on several episodes of the hilarious show between 2002 and 2004.
Jamie took a break from the screen following her pregnancy but landed several voice-acting jobs. She also dabbled in country music, releasing her EP, ‘The Journey’, in 2014. She revived her acting career with the release of ‘Sweet Magnolias’ on Netflix in 2020.
After varying reports, it was announced in Jan. 2023 that a ‘Zoey 101’ movie is in the works. The film will see several stars return: Erin Sanders as Quinn Pensky, Sean Flynn as Chase Matthews, Matthew Underwood as Logan Reese, Christopher Massey as Michael Barret, Abby Wilde as Stacey Dillsen, and Jack Salvatore as Mark Del Figgalo. Victoria Justice, who played Lola, and Paul Butcher, who played Zoey’s younger brother, Dustin, are not returning.
