Get ready to go back to Pacific Coast Academy! After giving fans a first look at the music video for her new version of the Zoey 101 theme song, “Follow Me” at a virtual event, Jamie Lynn Spears has officially dropped the video, full of nostalgia from the popular early ’00s Nickelodeon show.
Spears, along with former co-stars Sean Flynn, Chris Massey, Matthew Underwood and Erin Sanders, come together for the music video to “audition” for a new Zoey reboot, with TikTokers like Dixie D’Amelio and Noah Beck, YouTubers Gigi Gorgeous and Eva Gutowski and JoJo Siwa, among others, as some of the hopefuls to play new versions of the beloved characters.
The music video is full of Zoey 101 nostalgia, especially right from the start where “Chase” almost falls off his bike because of “Zoey,” a direct callback to when the two first met in the pilot. There’s also some disc golf, a callback to Sushi Roxx, Quinn’s robot and her “banapple” tree and other fun references as well flashes to fan-favorite scenes.
In a recent interview with CNN, Spears confirmed that conversations for the reboot are being had in a creative sense and they’re figuring out how they want to do it, wondering what it’ll look like. The music video was a chance for them to see what that new world could look like and she thinks the conversations will move faster now that they’ve dipped their toes into it.
