Victoria Justice Reveals That She is Down for a 'Zoey 101' Reboot After Cast Reunion

Victoria Justice has revealed that she is here for a Zoey 101 reboot following a fun reunion she had with her castmates — minus Jamie Lynn Spears — on July 29! The actor played Lola Martinez on the hit Nickelodeon show, which ran from 2005 to 2008.


The 26-year-old Victorious, Fun Size and Eye Candy star noted to Life & Style that “no one has approached me about a Zoey 101 reboot,” but she gave a resounding “Yeah!” when asked if she’d be interested in revamping the famed teen show. There were rumors circulating in July that Jamie Lynn was in talks about reprising her role 10 years later. Hmmm … it looks like the ball could be rolling.

“It was a lot of fun. It was great getting back together,” Victoria added about their mini-reunion while discussing her partnership with Mars, Inc. to promote its #PledgeforPlanet initiative, which aims to accelerate climate action. “It really just brought back old times and so many great memories. I just remember sitting there and looking at everyone’s faces and just feeling like no one had really changed. Like, things had obviously changed but we were still like at our core the same people and it just felt so comfortable and so familiar, so that was a really nice feeling. It was really fun.” The starlet noted that Jamie Lynn didn’t attend because she was “filming in Atlanta.”

Despite most of the castmates being spread all over the country, the Victorious actor acknowledged that she has “stayed in touch with everyone.” She explained, “Erin Sanders, who played Quinn on the show, we were really close when we were doing the show and she’s also in L.A. She’s now a yoga instructor and I’ve taken classes from her. So, we definitely reconnected.”

All in all, Victoria has a soft spot in her heart for the great memories they all made on set. “They’re all great, though. I feel really lucky to have had that experience in my life and to form those friendships. It was just a really special time in my life that I’ll always remember and I’ll always be grateful for,” she gushed.

Fingers crossed for that reboot/revival!

Victoria Justice Gushes Over Former Costar Jamie Lynn Spears: ‘She’s Killing It’

We stan women supporting other women! When Victoria Justice was asked about former Zoey 101 costar Jamie Lynn Spears, she had nothing but nice things to say. Despite the fact that it’s been years since they worked together, the Victorious alum, 26, is still cheering the 28-year-old on from afar.

“It’s great!” Victoria exclusively told Life & Style at the Mars, Incorporated’s #PledgeforPlanet event in regard to Jamie’s career and mom life. “I mean she’s killing it. I’m so happy for her. She seems like she’s so happy and she’s a great mom and yeah, I’m just really happy for her.”

In case you missed it, the cast of Zoey 101 had a mini reunion in June, bringing fans back to the good old PCA days. Unfortunately, Zoey herself missed the get-together due to work. “She didn’t [go] because she is currently filming in Atlanta so she wasn’t able to make it out unfortunately,” Victoria said.

Though Jamie was unable to physically be with her former castmates, she made sure to give them a sweet shout-out when she shared a video they sent her. “Not only did I miss the reunion, but I also missed the FaceTime, because I’m lame and fell asleep … thank y’all for the video and hope to see y’all very soon,” she captioned the Instagram post shared on July 30.

The clip included Victoria, Matthew Underwood, Sean Flynn, Paul Butcher, Christopher Massey, Erin Sanders and Abby Wilde greeting the actress in sync. “Hi Jamie! We miss you. We wish you could be here and we hope to see you soon,” they said collectively.

“It was a lot of fun. It was great getting back together,” Victoria told Life & Style about their reunion. “It really just brought back old times and so many great memories. I just remember sitting there and looking at everyone’s faces and just feeling like no one had really changed. Like, things had obviously changed but we were still like at our core the same people and it just felt so comfortable and so familiar, so that was a really nice feeling. It was really fun.” The former Nickelodeon star also added that she would be so down for a reboot. We’re not ready!
