Jamie Lynn Spears is returning to your TVs.
The Zoey 101 star and little sis of the princess of pop herself, Britney Spears, is finally making her long-awaited return to the small screen on Tuesday, May 19 with her first series regular role in over a decade on Netflix’s romantic drama series Sweet Magnolias, based on the novel series of the same name by Sherryl Woods.
While it’s not the return to Pacific Coast Academy that Nickelodeon fans of a certain generation are still pining for, it does give hope that a Zoey 101 reunion might happen someday now that the erstwhile Zoey Brooks is acting once again. And when/if that day does come, Spears has a few ideas about how it should go down.
“It has to be them as young adults,” she recently said on the Chicks in the Office podcast. “It needs to relate to our fans now just like it related to our fans then.”
“I’m open to ideas,” she added, noting she wouldn’t want to do a reboot just for the sake of doing one if no one actually likes it. “I want to do it to where it is still a good show.”
While we keep waiting, let’s check in on what Spears and the rest of her co-stars from the Nick series, which aired four seasons from 2005-08 on the kids’ cable network, have been up to since Zoey 101 came to its end.
For more from Spears, be sure to tune in for her appearance on E!’s Daily Pop today at 12:30 p.m. ET/PT.
Sweet Magnolias is now available to stream on Netflix.
