Stan has today confirmed a December premiere date for the all-new feature-length film based on the Emmy-winning series Zoey’s Extraordinary Playlist.
Zoey’s Extraordinary Christmas will bring the original cast back for a holiday encore, with the film picking up where season two left off, continuing Zoey’s journey as she navigates work, family, love, and everything in between.
Golden Globe® nominated Jane Levy, Skylar Astin, Alex Newell, John Clarence Stewart, Andrew Leeds, Alice Lee, Michael Thomas Grant, Kapil Talwalkar, Mary Steenburgen, Peter Gallagher, and Bernadette Peters (nominated for an Emmy® for her performance in the series), will all reprise their roles, bringing the same love and passion to the full-length feature film that loyal fans have come to know from the television show.
In preparation for the feature film, fans of the series can also now stream every episode of Zoey’s Extraordinary Playlist Seasons 1 and 2 exclusively on Stan.
Creator Austin Winsberg said:
“I can’t think of a more appropriate time to hear someone’s heart song than the holidays. And Zoey’s Extraordinary Christmas will be an opportunity to provide the fans and new viewers alike a chance to all tap their toes and get in the holiday mood. This show has always been about empathy, compassion and the triumph of the human spirit.”
Zoey’s Extraordinary Playlist debuted in the U.S. on NBC in 2020, quickly becoming one of television’s most buzzed-worthy shows and a ratings hit. The series was a critic’s favourite earning multiple award accolades including an Emmy® award for Outstanding Choreography for Scripted Programming, and five Emmy nominations and a Golden Globe nomination for its star Jane Levy.
After its run on NBC, the series and talent received immense support on socials through #savezoeysplaylist to continue the story, underscoring the show’s loyal fan base.
