'Zoey 101' Actor Posts Shady Video In Response To Sequel Movie Announcement

Former Zoey 101 star Paul Butcher threw shade at Paramount+'s newly announced Zoey 102 sequel film and at his former TV sister, Jamie Lynn Spears.

Paul Butcher has made his feelings about the Zoey 101 sequel, Zoey 102, very clear in a new video in which he throws shade at the film using an iconic The Devil Wears Prada scene.

Zoey 101 first premiered on Nickelodeon in 2005 and ran for 4 seasons before concluding in 2008. The coming-of-age series follows the adventures of Zoey Brooks (Jamie Lynn Spears) and her friend group as they navigate their teen years while attending a boarding school. On January 12, it was confirmed that Paramount+ is developing a sequel film titled Zoey 102 that will see the return of some of the original cast members. The film will premiere sometime in 2023 and be available to stream exclusively on Paramount+.

Butcher took to TikTok to express his feelings about the announcement of the sequel and threw shade at Zoey 101 and Spears in the process.

In the video, he participated in The Devil Wears Prada TikTok trend where users lip sync the scene where Andy Sachs (Anne Hathaway) says, "What if I don't want to live the way you live," and Miranda Priestly (Meryl Streep) responds, "Oh don't be ridiculous Andrea, everyone wants this." However, Butcher made a few adjustments to the trend, so it was insinuating the world doesn't want a Zoey 101 reboot, but Spears is ignoring that detail. The video follows Butcher previously slating spears in August last year for hosting The Follow Me (Zoey 101) Experience - The Legacy Continues fan event October 2020.

A few original Zoey 101 stars have already signed onto return for Zoey 102. Spears will be returning to reprise her lead role as Zoey, as well as to serve as executive producer on the film's set. Sean Flynn will also return to portray Chase Matthews, Zoey's main love interest, while Erin Sanders will be back as Zoey's best friend, Quinn. Matthew Underwood is also slated to return as Logan Reese. Additionally, recurring cast members Christopher Massey, Abby Wilde, and Jack Salvatore will reprise their roles as Michael Barret, Stacey Dillsen, and Mark Del Figgalo, respectively. Meanwhile, Butcher will, obviously, be in the group of cast members who will not return. Austin Butler, who has attained high fame since appearing in Zoey 101 season 4, will also not be returning. Victoria Justice (Victorious) and Alexa Nikolas are two other notable cast members who will not return for the sequel.
