‘Zoey’s Extraordinary Playlist’ Season 2 First Look: New Characters & Music (PHOTOS)
Season 2 of Zoey’s Extraordinary Playlist is almost here — the NBC musical comedy returns in the new year on Tuesday, January 5 — and NBC has unveiled several first-look photos featuring the returning cast alongside a new face.
While Season 1 followed Zoey’s (Jane Levy) story, beginning with a freak occurrence when an earthquake strikes during a routine MRI and leaves her with an ability to hear people’s inner thoughts and feelings through song, Season 2 focuses on her life after father Mitch’s (Peter Gallagher) death.
Still gifted with her mysterious power, Zoey and her family, including mother Maggie (Mary Steenburgen), brother David (Andrew Leeds), and sister-in-law Emily (Alice Lee) have to adjust to their new normal. And while Zoey’s grapples with her grief, she also faces some interesting dynamics between her love life and work, creating a perfect storm for more musical moments.
Along with the Clarkes, expect the return of Zoey’s beau, Max (Skylar Astin), bestie Mo (Alex Newell), former potential flame Simon (John Clarence Stewart), and coworkers Leif (Michael Thomas Grant) and Tobin (Kapil Talwalkar). And make way for Zoey’s new face: Harvey Guillen (What We Do in the Shadows), who will portray a SPRQ Point employee named George.
Below, check out the exciting first look photos teasing what’s to come when Zoey’s Extraordinary Playlist returns.
