Zoey101 has had reunions before, and even did a short where the cast opened a time capsule they had buried while they were boarding school students at Pacific Coast Academy in an episode from 10 years prior. Now, Zoey101‘s Paul Butcher, Sean Flynn, Kristin Herrera, Chris Massey, Erin Sanders, and Matthew Underwood will be able to see their costar again (though this time dressed as security) in the “Thelma Stump” sketch airing in early 2020.
This article has been updated to include a photo from the set of the Zoey101 cast reunion. The final episode of Zoey101 was a delightful walk down memory lane, but the one before that is where all the action happened.
With prom on the horizon, Zoey splits from her longtime boyfriend James (Austin Butler). At the dance, heartthrob Logan (Matthew Underwood) and quirky nerd Quinn (Erin Sanders) finally make their relationship public and Chase (Sean Flynn) finally confesses his true feelings for Zoey before the two share a kiss.
Alternative drama kid Lola (Victoria Justice) and football star Vince (Brando Eaton) also attend the dance. Creator Dan Schneider released a video in 2015 in which Chase discovered what his childhood crush Zoey said about him in a tape she put in a time capsule all the way back in Season 2.
He was in the middle of proposing to another woman when he got the word from Michael (Christopher Massey) about the tape, so it’s clear he and Zoey had broken up by then. The short video ended quite abruptly, so there’s no wonder fans are thirsty for more information.
It was criticized for including a number of Gen Z stars, such as Dixie D’Amelia, Noah Beck and Channel Jeffries. For instance, in a short clip at the beginning, Tojo Siva and Sofia Reyes audition for a role as “the new Zoey alongside Spears’ own daughter, Maddie.
Recently, he’s been reuniting with many of his former cast members, which has fans wondering if a reunion could truly be in the works. Chris Massey, Sean Flynn, Victoria Justice, Matt Underwood, Abby Wilde, Paul Butcher, Jack Salvatore and Erin Sanders were all at the reunion with creator Dan Schneider.
Ever since Nickelodeon's hit TV show Zoey101 ended, fans have been hoping for a reunion with its cast members. The show, which followed the lives of students at the fictional California boarding school Pacific Coast Academy, seemed like a total dream.
But, at the end, it was Zoey and Chase's relationship that left fans wondering what was going to happen next between them and hoping for a reunion. © Nickelodeon Seventeen talked with the cast of Zoey101 about their big reunion for All That, a possible reboot, and what they hope happens next.

Now her and her Zoey101 cast mates are back together for a special sketch that brings her to the very beginning of her career.
Seventeen got to talk to the Zoey101 cast about their big reunion, how it was being together again, and a possible revival. Erin Sanders : I think it is nice that we still have the freedom to imagine where our characters are and really give it a lot of thought and creativity.
Our chemistry snapped right back into place without any prep because we have that personal connection. Going back to actually playing our characters, we want to give it a lot of time and take the responsibility on of making sure we tell their stories accurately, and we can relate to where they are now as young adults.
17: A small clip was already released and fans were absolutely freaking out as soon as it dropped. Paul Butcher : I've always been so impressed by the fan base.
Sean Flynn : Yeah, people really connected to the show, all of our characters, and this world that was created by Dan .
A big part of the show that made it so special was that they really took our input into account as kids. Sean Flynn: There's a lot of questions to answer, and it'd be really fun to explore all those different avenues that could potentially happen in this world that Dan and Nickelodeon created for us.
Jaime Lynn Spears: What's really cool is there still a lot of stories that are open-ended that are very true to real life. There wasn't this perfect ending to every single story and that makes Zoey101 much more of a relatable thing, especially with today's world.
17: For your fans who will meet you all for the first time through the script, what are your hopes for them when they see the sketch? Paul Butcher: I hope that they connect to the characters like the younger generation did when we were kids.
I've been told a lot by fans that they there's a character for each of them, and it's helped them be comfortable with themselves. Erin Sanders: I think we were able to create something that was visually so beautiful and cinematic.
We were able to show all different kinds of relationships and personalities, and hardships and experiences and moments, including when these characters didn't feel so good about themselves and the moments when they uplifted one another and felt stronger and empowered. I've had so many young women write to me over the years telling me that Quinn Pesky inspired them to pursue their dreams to have a career in STEM, which is wild.
Matthew Underwood : I work with a lot of kids filming projects and when I meet their parents, they were huge fans. I don't know any show that has that sort of dynamic between adults and their kids both relating to the same characters in the same way.
