Zoey’s Extraordinary Playlist fans, your prayers are working!
The musical dramedy, which was canceled earlier this year, may finally get some closure.
According to TV Line, streaming player Roku is closing in on a deal for a two-hour wrap-up movie.
The outlet notes that if picked up, the finale movie would debut on The Roku Channel just in time for the holidays.
Even better… if the finale gets good ratings, the streamer might even order additional episodes.
EW reports that the series is in advanced negotiations, so it’s looking promising. The full cast, including Jane Levy and Skylar Astin, would likely return though deals would have to be finalized first.
This means that all the social media hashtags worked, but it’s kind of a bummer that NBC didn’t see the value of giving fans a proper ending.
And truthfully, leaving dedicated fandoms high and dry seems to be a common problem for the network — see Good Girls and Manifest. It almost makes me not want to get invested in any other shows out of the fear that they’ll be canceled just as they’re getting good!
I know there’s a lot that goes into renewals, including budgets that include cast salaries, but there has to be a better alternative than canceling shows and leaving fans with a plethora of questions.
When Timeless was canceled (still a huge mistake!), fans rallied and NBC agreed to a TV movie finale, which worked so well. It may not have been what the show creators envisioned, but at least it gave fans a chance to say a proper goodbye.
Why can’t we get wrap-up films for all the prematurely canceled shows? Especially since many of these shows hit Netflix and pick up a huge audience! Manifest continues to be one of the top 10 shows on Netflix!
Let’s hope that for the sake of Zoey’s fans that the deal with Roku goes through and come Christmas time, we’ll have a nice gift waiting for us!

When Does ‘Jeopardy’ Season 39 Premiere?
Jeopardy! is back with brand new episodes of the beloved game show!
Ken Jennings and Mayim Bialik take the podium as permanent co-hosts for the upcoming 39th season, which kicks off September 12, 2022. Jennings and Bialik co-hosted season 38 as well, but they were not officially named hosts yet.
They will be splitting duties with Jennings kicking off the season in September, hosting the inaugural Second Chance competition and the Tournament of Champions featuring Amy Schneider, Matt Amodio, Mattea Roach, Ryan Long, and more. His hosting run will go through the end of December, per TV Line. He will also be introduced for the first time as “host of Jeopardy!”
The coveted Tournament of Champions is slated to begin on Monday, October 31. Throughout the tournament’s run, one episode will air that will not impact the outcome of the competition.
Michael Davis, who is the executive producer this season, said during the Inside Jeopardy! Podcast that the special will pay tribute to the late Alex Trebek on the anniversary of his death.
There’s a lot Jeopardy! content that fans can look forward to this season, including Celebrity Jeopardy kicking off on Sunday, September 25. Bialik will host the celebrity-focused primetime special, exclusively, before taking over hosting duties from Jennings in January. She’s also set to host a couple of new tournaments as well as the Jeopardy! National College Championship depending on her Call Me Kat schedule and availability. Celebrity Jeopardy! will run a full hour with plenty of famous faces testing their knowledge.

‘Pretty Little Liars: Original Sin’ Renewed for Season 2 — But What Comes Next?
If you logged onto the internet today and saw Pretty Little Liars: Original Sin trending, you knew it could go either one of two ways—either HBO Max renewed the series for a second season… or, the murder mystery met its match and was a short-lived, yet promising, run.
Thankfully, it’s the former!
HBO Max has decided to stick around Millwood for a bit longer as it officially renewed the series, per The Hollywood Reporter.
The show’s 10-episode run impressed fans and even tied up loose ends by revealing who ‘A’ was rather than stringing the mystery along for several seasons like its predecessor on Freeform.
“We are so proud of the incredible response both critically and from fans that Pretty Little Liars: Original Sin has received,” said HBO Max head of originals Sarah Aubrey. “Viewers have embraced our new generation of Liars, and Roberto and Lindsay’s brilliantly dark, horror-fueled take on this iconic franchise. Along with Alloy and Warner Bros. Television, we are thrilled to continue the Pretty Little Liars legacy.”
PLL: OS, created by Roberto Aguirre-Sacasa and co-creator Lindsay Calhoon Bring, is now considered a legacy title and joins the ranks of Sex and the City and Gossip Girl, both of which were renewed by the streamer.
Season 1 starred Bailee Madison, Chandler Kinney, Zaria, Malia Pyles, Maia Reficco, Mallory Bechtel, Sharon Leal, Elena Goode, Eric Johnson, Alex Aiono and Lea Salonga.
Madison evens showed off her excitement in this celebratory tweet:
Recorded this for the family just INCASE it was good news… and ya’ll are like one big extended family so had to share… we LOVE YOU! SEE YOU SOON! #PLLOriginalSin #PLLOriginalSin2 @hbomax @PLLonMax pic.twitter.com/b6RBukq8ip
— Bailee Madison (@BaileeMadison) September 7, 2022
As for why the season wrapped up its core mystery, Bring previously told TVLine, “It was important to us with a cable show — a short-order show, a serialized show — to complete these stories and complete these mysteries,” adding, “Roberto and I love a complete story, so we wanted to complete these mysteries.” Of course, this begs the question, what’s next?
The door was left slightly ajar with “A” escaping the hospital in order to seek his revenge on Chip, one of the show’s villains in his own right, but with the mystery of the masked killer’s identity revealed, it’s unclear how the series will keep up the intriguing in a second season. However, Aguirre-Sacasa promised it would follow the same group of girls and seemed confident that viewers would remain hooked noting that they have “some preliminary ideas.”
“We certainly have a lot of places for these characters to go, new mysteries to tell and hopefully new ways to scare people,” he added.
Either way, we can’t wait.
