No Season 3 for the musical dramedy.
June 9, 2021
It is being reported that NBC has cancelled Zoey's Extraordinary Playlist after two seasons. The sad news comes less than a month following the musical dramedy's sophomore finale, with its May 16 episode now serving as its series ender.
The show premiered as a mid-season entry in 2020 and it won its share of fans who appreciated its quirky musical format. Critics took to the series as well, giving it mostly-positive feedback. Unfortunately its niche audience was limited in size, and its overall viewership was not enough to warrant a third season.
There had been rumors circulating recently that the show could be moved to the network's streaming platform, Peacock, but nothing ended up materializing on that front. Producer Lionsgate Television, for its part, will be shopping the series around to hopefully find it a new home elsewhere.
Zoey's Extraordinary Playlist follows a tech worker in San Francisco who experiences an unusual event that allows her to hear people's innermost thoughts and desires through songs. This initially makes her question her own sanity, but pretty soon she realizes that this unwanted ability may just be a wonderful gift.

I really enjoyed this show. I was really disappointed when I couldn't record or watch Season 2 fully. However, when they did the 25 hour marathon on E! I thoroughly enjoyed it. Her relationships with Max and Simon got crazier. The who will she end up with. Her father visiting, mom starting to move on. The weird restaurant idea with Max and Mo and that twist on the season 2 finale.... it had so much in a tiny season. I hope they find a home for a season 3.

They should have done a season on peacock. Seems like enough people would give the service a try just to see this show.
What are they going to do replace it with a show where people play giants around miniatures for money?

Better to be replaced by a reality show than an infomercial. Although i have seen infomercials better than this show.

Too bad. This was an enjoyable show with lots of catchy musical numbers that kept me entertained.
The setting of working in a modern tech firm was a bit too stylized. I often got the feeling that I was watching a lot of high school drama geeks doing their take on high school nerds. But Zoey and her quirky friends still kept my attention. Some stories had real pathos.
Probably the cost was too great for the ratings it got. You got the feeling that after the first season they had to cut back on some of the more famous cast (Lauren Graham, Peter Gallagher).

What a surprise. /s
Gee I wonder what ''reality'' shit they are going to replace this with will be.

First season was very good, but i haven't been able to start up the second season. So far it miss some of the emotional dilema, which the first season had.

I was wondering if this may happen. I mean they did the season finale as if the show was ending, but didn’t know for sure. I am sad to see it go, but I felt it ended well. I look forward to future projects from the members of the cast and crew.

I completely agree with Byteme, first season was great, but season 2 was really disappointing plot-wise. I kept watching for the songs and wasn't planning on tuning in for season 3...

@Byteme - Agreed.
I think when they killed off her Dad, the show just wasn't as good. Still not a TERRIBLE show, but we stopped watching about that time -- but not for that specific reason.
I do wish shows (in general) ran longer, as it really kills us fans to have a show we like being cancelled so soon.
Totally off topic, but I sure hope they "end" The Blacklist properly. We have been watching for 8 years now... and I hope it gets an "end" so we find out the truth.
Happy Viewing! :-)
