The cancellation of Zoey’s Extraordinary Playlist hit its fanbase exhausting nevertheless it seems prefer it has hit its star, Jane Levy, even tougher. Levy is speaking about NBC’s choice to cancel the collection & she’s being fairly blunt about her emotions regarding the community.

Levy was talking with “Vanity Fair” following the information & she stated NBC’s choice to cancel the present was the “wrong move” and he or she urged {that a} present “about love” is way wanted in a “crime and guns” heavy TV line-up. Here is what Levy stated in full:

“I’m sorry, but I have to say this: I look at the new NBC lineup, and it’s like, ‘Okay, we could watch a lot of shows about crime and guns. Our show is about love. It’s a real shame to take that off the air. I feel like it’s the wrong move.”

Like most of us, Levy thought the present was heading to the Peacock streaming service as a result of, regardless of having mushy linear rankings, the present was a robust digital performer. In regards to what she and the forged thought Levy stated “When we finished shooting season two, I put all my stuff in storage in Canada {where the show films}. I was like, ‘Of course we’re coming back’…Last Friday it seemed like it was a green light. And then Monday morning it was a red light.”

Last 12 months a season two renewal appeared unlikely however NBC, Lionsgate TV, & Universal TV labored out a enterprise framework to make a renewal possible. During that point, the present was additionally a stable digital performer, which led to the present getting a second season. The large query for its passionate fanbase for the reason that information that the present will not be returning for a 3rd season is why did Peacock move this up? The present appears excellent for streaming and already has a robust digital footprint. I can solely speculate, however I feel the licensing payment for the songs could possibly be the perpetrator as a result of I think about they don’t seem to be low cost.

Zoey’s Extraordinary Playlist adopted Zoey Clarke (Jane Levy), a whip-smart pc coder forging her method by way of San Francisco. After an uncommon occasion, Zoey all of a sudden begins to listen to the innermost needs, ideas, and needs of the folks round her, by way of standard songs. The collection additionally stars Peter Gallagher, Alex Newell, and Skylar Astin.

Lionsgate Television is at the moment procuring the present to different platforms and showrunner Austin Winsberg tweeted final Wednesday that he refuses “to believe the show is dead.” He instructed his followers to tweet #savezoeysplaylist to get the phrase out that the followers need the present to proceed.
