More Details on Zoey 102; New Lifetime Movie Series Coming July 8

Zoey 102

Paramount+ and Nickelodeon announced additional casting for Zoey 102, the all-new, full-length original movie based on characters from the hit live-action Nickelodeon series Zoey 101 as they reunite for a wedding. Joining the previously announced returning cast members are Dean Geyer (Glee), Owen Thiele (Theater Camp) and Thomas Lennon (Reno 911). First look images were also released for Zoey 102, which will premiere later this summer exclusively on Paramount+.

Over a decade after the iconic series ended, Zoey Brooks is still trying to figure out life and love, this time in her 20s. The Pacific Coast Academy (PCA) gang returns to Malibu for an over-the-top wedding turned high school reunion for the books. Jamie Lynn Spears returns as Zoey Brooks, who graduated alongside the first female class ever to be allowed into Pacific Coast Academy. Erin Sanders returns as Zoey’s best friend, Quinn Pensky. Sean Flynn returns as Zoey’s on again, off again love interest, Chase Matthews. Also returning are Matthew Underwood, as Logan Reese; Christopher Massey, as Michael Barret; Abby Wilde, as Stacey Dillsen; and Jack Salvatore, as Mark Del Figgalo. The wedding reunion includes new cast members: Thomas Lennon, as Zoey’s boss Kelly Kevyn; Owen Thiele as Zoey’s friend Archer March; and Dean Geyer, as charismatic actor Todd.


V.C. Andrews' Dawn

Lifetime reenters the V.C.-Verse with the new limited series V.C. Andrews' Dawn - inspired by the bestselling author's Dawn Cutler series of novels - setting the premiere for Saturday, July 8 at 8/7c with new movies every Saturday evening through July 29. Lifetime is the exclusive television home for movies and series from the library of V.C. Andrews, one of the most popular authors of all time. The network's most recent limited V.C. series, Flowers in the Attic: The Origin, was seen by 10.6 million total viewers and was ad-supported cable's #1 new scripted series in calendar year 2022.

Each part of the new four-chapter limited series focuses on one of Andrews' Dawn Cutler novels, including Dawn, Secrets of the Morning, Twilight's Child, and Midnight Whispers, and delves into the dark and twisted histories of the Cutler, Booth and Longchamp families. Brec Bassinger (Stargirl) takes on the title role of Dawn Longchamp and will be joined by Emmy winner Donna Mills (Nope) as Lillian Cutler. Also set to star in the new movie event are Joey McIntyre (New Kids on the Block) as Michael Sutton; Jesse Metcalfe (Desperate Housewives) as Ormand Longchamp; Khobe Clarke (Yellowjackets) as Jimmy Longchamp; and Emmy nominee Fran Drescher as Agnes Morris. Additional cast includes Jason Cermak as Dawn's father Randolph Cutler; Miranda Frigon as Dawn's mother, Laura Jean Cutler; Megan Best as Dawn's teenage daughter Christie; as well as Elyse Maloway (The Magicians) and Dane Schioler (Prom Pact) as Dawn's siblings Clara Jean and Philip Cutler.
