Trivia: Zoey 101

  • Adored by the Network: When this show was on Nickelodeon, it always seemed to be the "B" live-action show to Drake & Josh or iCarly. However, years after it ended, TeenNick began to show reruns ad nauseam, giving it nearly as many showings a day as, if not more than, Degrassi The Next Generation. It is arguably responsible for TeenNick's rapid Network Decay. Now it has been averted to an extent, as while TeenNick still shows the show frequently, it's nowhere near as frequently and constant as it was in 2011-2012.
    • Beginning in December 2013, Zoey 101 (along with Drake & Josh) began getting many more reruns on TeenNick; you'd think Zoey was a TeenNick original series.
  • Contractual Purity: This became an issue when Jamie Lynn Spears, 16 at the time, became pregnant. Contrary to rumors, this is not what caused the show to be cancelled as the network had already made the decision to do so and filming for the final season had already been wrapped up before Spears became pregnant. However, it did raise the issue of whether or not to air the final season.
  • Dawson Casting: Averted as with many Nickelodeon shows. Even inverted with Victoria Justice, who played a ninth-grader at age 13.
  • Hey, It's That Guy!:
  • Hey, It's That Voice!: Benjamin Diskin (who voiced Numbuh One in Codename: Kids Next Door) played Chase's offscreen British roommate in "Trading Places". He even used the same voice.
  • What Could Have Been: Dana was planned to become Logan's girlfriend in the later seasons of the show, but after the first season, her actress was released because "she looked too old" and was replaced by Victoria Justice as Zoey's roommate and the Logan's girlfriend bit would later go to Quinn.
