Jamie Lynn Spears is having the time of her life filming Zoey 102, the reboot of her Nickelodeon series from the 2000s, Zoey 101, in which she plays the title role.
Jamie Lynn Spears' Mystical Experience As She Films 'Zoey 102'!
On Monday, the 31-year-old actress, singer, and younger sister of Britney Spears shared a carousel of photos on Instagram taken on the set, giving her 2.2 million followers a behind-the-scenes look at the upcoming movie.
Along with the photos, she posted a heartfelt message saying, “Bittersweet feels. I truly love all of these humans,” referring to the film’s cast and crew.
“The NEW ERA of ZOEY would not exist without each and every person doing their part to create this magical experience, including our amazing fans,” she continued.
10 Pics Are Not Enough
Lamenting the fact that Instagram only allows 10 pics in a carousel post, she concluded, “gonna need wayyyy more then 10 photos to include all of these wonderful people tho😭 #ZOEY102”
Family Members Made A Cameo In Her Post
The first pic shows Jamie carrying her daughter, Ivey, as she makes her way down the stairs alongside her mother, Lynne.

Her Daughters On The Makeup Chair
Jamie’s other daughter, Maddie, also makes an appearance in the carousel, sitting on the makeup chair with her younger sister on her lap.
In another pic, she’s sitting beside Owen Thiele, who’s flashing the peace sign for the camera. There’s also an image of first assistant director, Kyle LeMire, speaking to the crew.

What The New Movie Is About
In the Paramount+ film, Jamie reprises her role as Zoey Brooks, a former student at the fictional boarding school, Pacific Coast Academy. Other original cast members also return as her fellow alumni reuniting for a wedding.
They're Currently In Production
The cast and crew are currently filming in North Carolina.
She's Excited For The Film
The actress, who’s also an executive producer of the movie, expressed excitement over the project in a statement obtained by Variety.
“I’m beyond thrilled to be back alongside my PCA family and continue the story of Zoey and all the characters fans know and love,” her statement said.
'An Exciting Opportunity'
“As an executive producer, it's been an exciting opportunity to work with such incredible talent as well as Paramount+ and Nickelodeon,” she added.
The Original Series
Zoey 101, the original series, ran for four seasons from 2005 to 2008 and followed the story of Zoey as she attended the formerly all-boys Pacific Coast Academy.
It Was A Hit
The series was a hit during its time and won several awards as well before its cancellation after a three-year run.
She Teased The Reboot Last Month
Last month, Jamie teased the reboot in an Instagram post showing a director’s chair with “Zoey” written on it. On the chair is a copy of the script, and in the second slide are more chairs with the names of the other characters.
When Is The Premiere?
There is no release date yet, but Paramount+ said the movie will premiere later in 2023.
