Jamie Lynn Spears drops new ‘Zoey 101’ theme song

Jamie Lynn Spears drops new ‘Zoey 101’ theme song

Jamie Lynn Spears is working on that “Zoey 101” reboot, ya’ll.

The former Nickelodeon star told CNN in a recent interview that she gets asked by fans of the show all the time when there will be some sort of reunion. She says that’s why she decided to re-record the theme song from the show that ran from 2005 to 2008.

“It was just an overwhelming amount of people asking for some ‘Zoey’ content. With not being able to fully go into production with anything or move forward as fast as we’d like, I said we’ve got to give them something. So, I started thinking we can’t we just maybe re-do the song? A mini reboot reunion in 3 minutes and 30 seconds.”

The song, which dropped on Thursday, will also feature a music video with the majority of the original cast and even Spears’ daughter, Maddie.

“Zoey 101” was a series created by Dan Schneider about a teenage girl, Zoey Brooks, and her friends at a boarding school. Spears says discussions are well underway but it’s about finding the right balance.

“Those conversations are definitely being had in a creative sense and figuring out how do we marry the Zoey we grew up on to the Zoey today,” she said. “And doing it correctly. Because we don’t want to put something out just for the sake of putting something out. Also with Covid it’s just a little hard to know what that looks like. I think this video was a good introduction to the safety precautions you have to take with production … I think it’s going to be a lot of fun and that the conversations will move a lot faster now that we’ve dipped our toes into it.”

Spears says she’s spent her free time during quarantine watching plenty of television, old and new.

“I just finished ‘Ozark.’ ‘The Crown’ I’m re-watching it because I’m getting ready for the new season to come out. I think everyone is doing a lot of re-watching of things. That’s also why ‘Zoey’ made sense, because everyone is going back to things we originally loved.”

Spears said she’s been leaning into her family amid the pandemic.

“I think a lot of people are on edge. I think if everyone can just remember that we are all fighting our own battles in different ways and even in a very sensitive time with quarantine, we need to just have compassion for each other. We will get through this and also love on the ones you love and the ones that love you. That’s what’s going to get us through,” she said. “I think we’ve realized during quarantine that when you can’t go anywhere or do anything, the people you love, your family are really important.”

Another familiar face returns to ‘Grey’s Anatomy’

Another familiar face returns to ‘Grey’s Anatomy’

Meredith Grey’s death beach party got a new guest in this week’s episode of “Grey’s Anatomy.”

In the new episode, the doctor (played by Ellen Pompeo) remained in critical condition as she fought the coronavirus and was visited in her Covid-19 dream by the late George O’Malley (T. R. Knight).

Meredith’s dead husband, Derek Shepherd (Patrick Dempsey), kicked off what is turning into a season of surprise returns with an unannounced appearance in the premiere episode.

Though Knight’s appearance was also unannounced, previews for this week’s episode had teased that another face from the past would be seen again.

Knight left the series at the end of the fifth season, with his character meeting a tragic end after being hit by a bus. (He saved a female stranger by pushing her out of a bus’s path.)

George’s untimely and heroic demise came up when the best friends met again on the beach, where they talked about death, grief and the impact George had on Meredith.

“You changed my life, George. I didn’t say it then, but it’s true,” she told him.

At episode’s end, Meredith remained in rough shape but had been given a treatment under trial. Meanwhile, Tom Koracick (Greg Germann), who viewers learned had the coronavirus in the last episode, took a turn for the worse despite showing signs that he was in for a seemingly mild fight.

“Grey’s Anatomy” airs Thursdays on ABC.
