'Zoey 101' Reboot Still in the Works Amid Jamie Lynn Spears' Drama with Britney, According to Chris Massey

If case you've missed it, there is currently a lot of drama going on between Jamie Lynn Spears and her older sister, Britney. However, Zoey 101 fans will be relived to hear that the drama is having no impact on the show's reboot moving forward, according star Chris Massey.

Talking to TMZ in L.A. on Tuesday, July 20, Massey revealed that he's heard the exact opposite of what his fellow Zoey alum, Paul Butcher, said online the other day about the #FreeBritney drama potentially derailing the show's revival.

Chris also told TMZ that he's been in touch with Jamie Lynn fairly recently, and that as far as he knows -- the plan is still to bring back the show, even though he admits they have been somewhat delayed.

However, he also acknowledges JLS is going through some family drama -- namely Britney crushing her little sister on social media over the conservatorship and an old award show beef.

Chris says he's not sure why Paul made it seem like the reboot was off, and even has a message for his old pal. He wants to have a little chat to clear the air, and any rumors he might've inadvertently caused with his TikTok post.

Chris also gives gave a bit of insight into what he remembers about Britney and Jamie Lynn's relationship, albeit from many years past. Although Britney's making it seem like it's no love lost between them, he remembers a time it was clearly much different.

As Chris has been told, the show must go on.

A Zoey 101 reboot has been in the works for quite some time now, with the cast reuniting last year for an All That sketch, in which Jamie Lynn reprised her iconic character "Thelma Stump." The following October, Jamie hosted The Follow Me (Zoey 101) Experience - The Legacy Continues, a live stream event which included a new version of the show's iconic theme song, "Follow Me," which also featured social media influencers popular today.

Jamie Lynn has previously said that she wanted her daughter Maddie to star in the Zoey 101 reboot, and she wants Zoey and Chase to have a "happy ending" in the revival.
