Will There Be a “Zoey’s Extraordinary Playlist” Season 3?
While the series has not been renewed, creator and showrunner Austin Winsberg told TheWrap he concluded the holiday movie in a way that left the door open for them all to return. “By the end of the movie, you want some sense of completion, but not a total completion so that we can still leave the door open a little bit, in case there is a desire for more,” Winsberg said. “So it was definitely a thin needle to thread. And I felt like keeping the Max and Zoey stuff alive from the season was important. Keeping Mo and Perry alive was important to me. And obviously the family dealing with the first holiday without dad was sort of the crux of the movie, but keeping the tone and the soul and the spirit of it alive too.”
