I’m writing this with a big smile on my face, because yes! Yes! Yes! All that tweeting, that re-watching, the passion of an entire fandom who never gave up, plus the crew and actors …seems like it’s going to pay off. Deadline is reporting that Zoey’s Extraordinary Playlist is getting a holiday movie on Roku.
Yes, we said Roku. And yes, we now care about Roku! See, streaming services? It’s that easy! Now you have a loyal audience, which, I promise, will stick with you.
Roku entered the arena of original programming with the acquisition of the Quibi library, and with a critically acclaimed show like Zoey’s Extraordinary Playlist now on its library, well we’re pretty sure those active account numbers are gonna go up. Starting with me. Looking it up right now.
The deal, which is still being finalized, is only for a holiday movie – for now. Because if that movie ends up being successful, there’s always the potential for a third season, according to the reports. Deals with the cast are being finalized and yes, we are getting our show back. And hey, considering this fandom, I have no doubt that third season will be coming. Talk about consistent. Talk about passionate.
You did this, Zoey’s Extraordinary Playlist fandom. Now you get to rejoice. 🥂
