Axed: Zoey’s Extraordinary Playlist

Musical dramedy ends with 2 seasons but producers hope to shop it around.

US musical dramedy Zoey’s Extraordinary Playlist has been cancelled by NBC after two seasons.

The series starred Jane Levy as Zoey Clarke, a computer coder living in San Francisco. After an unusual event she suddenly starts to hear the innermost wants, thoughts and desires of the people around her through song. It also featured Alex Newell, Skylar Astin, John Clarence Stewart, Mary Steenburgen, Andrew Leeds, Alice Lee, Michael Thomas Grant, Kapil Talwalkar, Lauren Graham and Harvey Guillén.

Variety reports there had been talks about moving the series to streaming service Peacock for a third season, but that move ultimately did not come together.

However Lionsgate Television plans to shop it to other outlets.

“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,” a spokesperson said.

Zoey’s Extraordinary Playlist airs in Australia on Stan.

  1. I wondered if this would be cancelled. I loved season one, having only found it earlier this year and watched it all in a week or so. Then season two came along and I found it did not live up to the same interest I had of season one. I’ve got the final four episodes to catch up on to finish the show.

    1. 100% agree, the second season did not live up to the first IMO, also felt it was a bit more blatantly preachy than the first. Ended up tuning out by half way through the second season.
