Skylar joins some of his castmates from Zoey’s Extraordinary Playlist on #StarsInTheHouse for The Actors Fund.

Zoey’s Extraordinary Playlist Cast members of the NBC series including Skylar Astin, Peter Gallagher, Lauren Graham, Jane Levy, Alex Newell, Mary Steenburgen, John Clarence Stewart, and creator/executive producer Austin Winsberg and producer/choreographer Mandy Moore.


In Zoey’s Extraordinary Playlist, a young working woman can suddenly hear the innermost feelings of those around her… through choreographed song and dance numbers. The show made viewers laugh, cry, and want to sing along throughout its inaugural season, but will Zoey’s Extraordinary Playlist return for season 2?

Unfortunately there’s no official word yet on whether the show’s been renewed by NBC, but that hasn’t stopped showrunner Austin Winsberg from moving ahead. “I had to pitch season 2 to [NBC execs] two-and-a-half weeks ago, so I have fully mapped out all of Season 2,” Winsberg tells TVLine. “The network was very happy with the creative direction. They’re very happy with the show in general…I am cautiously optimistic for a season 2.”

Skylar Astin, who plays Zoey’s lovelorn coworker Max tells Bustle, “I can speak on behalf of the cast, the crew, the whole team, that we all very much want a season 2 and feel optimistic. We are overwhelmed with the love this show has received from fans already.”

It’s a strange time for television, with the effects of coronavirus halting productions worldwide. “There’s just a lot for [NBC] to figure out because the world is put on hold, and they don’t know when shooting’s allowed to start again and what their needs are going to be,” Winsberg also Tells TVLine. “But I know we have a lot of internal support, and we have a lot of nice external support, as well. So I think we’re all feeling cautiously optimistic for more.”

So while fans won’t find out Zoey’s fate for quite sometime: they have one last jaw-dropping episode to tied them over. The finale, which airs this evening, includes incredible seven minute musical number. “There’s a lot in that episode that’s very personal, that’s taken directly from my own life. We do a seven-minute musical number in the episode that is all one take,” Winbserg tells Entertainment Tonight. “So we nail everything, which is one of the things, if not the thing that I’m most proud of the whole season. The finale is one of our best episodes. But also, we have a lot of great songs and big emotions that come out in that episode and some big story points that change everything going forward.”

The actor stars on NBC’s new musical series ‘Zoey’s Extraordinary Playlist.’

Those who fell in love with Skylar Astin in Pitch Perfect years ago (he played Treblemaker heartthrob Jesse) can now catch him singing in latest acting role on Zoey’s Extraordinary Playlist. The actor plays Max, Zoey’s coworker who often bursts into song — oh, and has feelings for Zoey, naturally.

With production wrapping in January, Astin has had some extra time on his hands, especially now that he’s social distancing like the rest of us. And, of course, he’s using that spare time to dive into some new tunes. So for his Takeover Tuesday playlist, Astin shares the songs he’s been digging lately, aptly tilting it “Skylar’s Extra Time Playlist.”

The 16-song lineup features songs from several different genres, including Doja Cat’s current smash hit “Say So,” Khalid’s smooth “Up All Night” and Tiesto and Calum Scott’s cover of Robyn’s classic “Dancing On My Own.” Astin also included his version of the Jonas Brothers’ “Sucker” that he sang on Zoey’s Extraordinary Playlist, as well as a couple of songs he’s hoping to sing once the show is back in action.

Fortunately for those who love Zoey’s Extraordinary Playlist, there’s still new episodes to come, as they were filmed before social distancing began. Tune into NBC on Sundays at 9:00 p.m. ET/PT for new episodes, and check out Astin’s playlist — as well as some comments from the actor himself — below.

Willow Smith, “Wait a Minute!”: Do not sleep on Willow Smith. She is a full vibe.

Doja Cat, “Say So”: Another bop that just keeps you in the moment.

Miley Cyrus, “Slide Away”: This song is the gift that keeps on giving. I love the melodies, I love the pre-chorus, all the backup vocals. Solid.

Khalid, “Up All Night”: I love all Khalid’s songs for the most part. I find I’m “up all night” these days, so this made the cut.

NOKD, “So Close”: This song makes me get up. Anthemic.

Surfaces, “Sunday Best”: This one is such a full “feel good” track. You can’t not feel your best when this one is on.

Calum Scott, “Dancing On My Own (Tiesto Remix)”: This song makes me want to explode into a pop dance when the chorus hits. Love the original too, but I see the dance club visual in this version.

Jess Glynne, “Hold My Hand”: I found this song when I was in London, and played it for most of the flight home. It just makes me feel happy and safe. And dance-y.

Miguel, “Pineapple Skies”: There is an old-school Marvin [Gaye] vibe going down in some of these melodies and I LOVE IT. Miguel can wail. I want to sing this song in some capacity for sure.

Cautious Clay, “Cold War”: Definitely a bedroom R&B song.

Skylar Astin, “Sucker” (From Zoey’s Extraordinary Playlist Soundtrack): Might as well sneak this one in. Harvey Mason Jr. did a wonderful job arranging this track. Slowing it down and giving it a heavier downbeat really helped that taunting sexy feeling we were going for. And then he let me change some vocals up without being too distracting.

Majid Jordan, “King City”: This song is so damn special.

Kelly Khumalo, “Dance Comigo”: This one makes me think of love. True, eternal love. One that you have for a partner, or even a family member. Just one that lasts forever.

Big Wild, “6’s to 9’s”: The hook on this song is addicting.

Pink Sweat$, “Honesty”: Again, I want to sing this!

Darlingside, “Hold Your Head Up High”: This song is simple, yet so beautiful. The harmonies, the lyrics, the voices. *chef’s kiss*
