Last year, Zoey’s Extraordinary Playlist didn’t perform very well in the traditional ratings but made up for it in streaming and delayed viewing. How will this musical comedy-drama series perform in year two? Will Zoey’s Extraordinary Playlist be cancelled or renewed for season three? Stay tuned. *Status Update Below.
Zoey’s Extraordinary Playlist stars Jane Levy, Skylar Astin, Alex Newell, John Clarence Stewart, Andrew Leeds, Alice Lee, Michael Thomas Grant, Kapil Talwalkar, and Mary Steenburgen. Zoey Clarke (Levy) is a whip-smart computer coder who’s making her way in San Francisco. After an unusual event, Zoey, who always preferred podcasts over pop songs, suddenly starts to hear the innermost wants, thoughts, and desires of the people around her – her family, co-workers, and complete strangers – through popular songs. The second season picks up after a tragedy and Zoey and her family begin to recalibrate and navigate their new normal. As she finds herself in a new dynamic at work and in her love life, Zoey’s musical powers continue to both awkwardly complicate and inform her worldview as she attempts to rediscover joy and connect with those around her.

Awesome show put it original time slot and renew for another season.
LOVE THIS SHOW!!!! Watch it on Stan streaming in Australia. Please don’t forget your international viewers when deciding to continue to produce shows like this. Mandy Moore is a genius and the singing/music, dancing and acting on this show is an absolute delight. Every episode is tear-worthy but uplifting in its human relationships commentary and messaging. I cannot possibly recommend it enough. (If I had known this was showing on NBC in the US also, I would have told all of my friends and family to watch there, but I didn’t realize that.)
Five Stars Love Zoey’s Extraordinarily Playlist there is no other show like it on tv it’s like watching a musical play every week our family loves it! Mary
I love the show. I think it is so entertaining and enjoyable. I think the network hurt the show by changing its time slot . It would be a super hit
LOVE THIS SHOW! We watch it as a college household every week and are obsessed!
This was a cute show at first, but It got really annoying after a while. Zoey’s life is completely unreal and she has to be the most insufferable person to be around. She’s got an untreated mental illness that began with her father’s decline that she never gets help for. The people around her must be crazy because they act like there’s nothing wrong. This might be her coping mechanism, but there’s clearly a lot of problems in her life that she refuses to deal with.
What “mental illness”?
Zoeys playlist is the best show in ages. It shows real life drama, comedy and a superior cast that keeps you drawn into each episodes storylines. Comedy drama with music and gorgeous set designs are perfect. I hope this series lasts for many many nore years. One of the most talented casts Ive seen since glee but for adults. I say keep it going at least until season 10. Its hars to find a show that can make you laugh cry or sing along.
Zoey’s seems to have lost some of the endearing spark of its first. I’m afraid it has lost my interest. Disappointed because I loved the first season.
I agree. Enjoyed the fun musical and dance numbers. We binge watched season one on Hulu. Then season two brought the “woke” episode with irrational racism charges. Our interest went below zero. Haven’t been back to watch since. Looks like we weren’t alone.
I loved this show for its quirkiness, the singing and the relationships.
Season 2 has slide into something else, the politics have ruined it.
Showing a beautiful successful black character whining about prejudice is just awful. He is a beautiful successful respected character…what has he got to complain about. If there aren’t many black people employed is it prejudice or skill related?
I am tired of tv shows shoving this down our throats. Stop treating us like we are all racist, sexist people.
Lost me completely.
They are trying to make an impact on the sexist, racist society that we live in. Saying that that isn’t our life is just naive and blind.
Lots of evidence to the contrary. Not much in support. I have had black, female, and even black female bosses. Affirmative action has been a thing for at least 30 years. I have hired foreign and female engineers -when they were the best I could get and they frequently are. But few women, and even fewer black people choose engineering for a career. Is it wrong that they have other preferences? I know women with masters in mathematics and engineering but this is rare by choice. Just as men are under represented as grade school teachers and nurses. Our politicians… Read more »
I think you nailed it. I agree.
Very disappointed in the direction that the show has taken. I do not find it as entertaining as season 1. They had a great premise going, with talented people. It was like watching a Broadway show. Not the same.
Unfortunately I have to agree. Season 1 was extraordinary. But season 2 so far seems to be missing the mark. I’m not sure exactly what’s so off about it, but the absence of Joan is noticeable.
What happened to the delightful show from last season! I’m depressed after each show on Season 2. Zoey using sex, alcohol, and drugs. Trying to solve all the world’s problems. I thought this was supposed to be a comedy.
Oh please. Nobody would be watch this show if it was a children’s book with no problems
“Zoey’s Extraordinary Playlist” has become Extraordinarily Horrible. Loved last season. Not at all this season. Cancel!
I don’t like it much this season either, Stop watching; but to scream cancel is basically saying fire everyone. Just don’t watch shows you no longer life. Think of last season as a different show which had a great ending.
