Paul Butcher Hints That There May Be No 'Zoey 101' Reboot Planned

For the last few years, Jamie Lynn Spears has been teasing that her beloved Nickelodeon series Zoey 101 would be getting a reboot, however, it looks like the reboot could be in trouble.

Paul Butcher, who played Zoey's (Spears) younger brother Dustin on the comedy, recently appeared on the Put A Sock In It Podcast, and suggested that there is no Zoey 101 reboot in the works.

In 2019, the cast of Zoey 101 reunited for an All That sketch, in which Jamie Lynn reprised her iconic character "Thelma Stump." The reunion, at the time, was said to see whether the cast would still work well together for a Zoey 101 reboot.

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.

And that's where the trouble starts. During his interview, Paul revealed that Nickelodeon had nothing to do with the experience, and what's more, there was only money for the guest stars - Chantel Jeffries, JoJo Siwa, Dixie D’Amelio, Sofia Reyes, Noah Beck, Loren Gray, Harry Jowsey, Eva Gutowski, Gigi Gorgeous - to be paid for taking part in the video, meaning none of the stars of Zoey 101 were going to be compensated for their time. Paul also revealed that there was poor planning behind-the-scenes, with Jamie sending out the scripts out too late. With the situation getting "weirder and weirder," Paul ultimately decided to opt out of appearing in the video the day before the shoot.

Paul also revealed that Jamie promised Kristin Herrera, who played Dana on the show, a spot in the music video, but pulled out at the last minute, citing budget problems - even though none of the cast were going to get paid.
