Nickelodeon’s Zoey 101 will ring nostalgic for many of those who were young teens in the mid-2000s. It turned Jamie Lynn Spears into a star in her right instead of just the little sister of pop star Britney Spears. The show followed a group of students attending a fictional boarding school in California called PCA (Pacific Coast Academy) which previously only allowed boys and got shaken up when it became co-ed. Over the years it was nominated for one Primetime Emmy and took home many awards at various other awards show for Outstanding Children’s Programming. Eight years later, check out what the cast has been up to since!
