'Zoey's Extraordinary Playlist': Emotional Season 1 finale moves viewers to tears, fans want the show renewed
'Zoey's Extraordinary Playlist' aired with an emotional season finale that had all of us reaching for our tissues. The series that started off on a happy note, so much so that fans were shocked by the way the series came to an end. After 12 episodes and a lot of heart songs, fans now want the series to be renewed for Season 2.
When the episode began, Zoey (Jane Levy) woke up singing to herself again, and this time it was a dire song. It was 'Bad Moon Rising' by Creedence Clearwater Revival. Worried about what danger is lurking around her, her family, and friends, Zoey was extra aware of her surroundings. But by the end of the day, things seemed fine.
Her father's health was in a better condition, Joan became in charge of SPRQ Point, Mo and Eddie got back together. Apart from that, she and Max (Skylar Astin) finally hooked up, which fans have been rooting for since the season premiered.
But little did she know, that Mitch's better condition during the day was just the calm before the storm. Half an hour into the episode, when things were going great, fans didn't expect it to turn into an emotional end with them reaching for their tissues.
Zoey gets a call from home about her father's deteriorating health condition and rushes to be by his side in his last few moments. It was sad to see Mitch (Peter Gallagher) go, but hopefully, if the series is renewed we will get to see him in Zoey's imagination.
Throughout this season, Zoey has grown a lot and even though it was tragic to see her father's death, it helped her grow and get stronger as well. What stood out throughout this entire episode, was the final song 'American Pie' when the family and friends of Zoey's came together and we couldn't have asked for a better ending to the season.
But this is just the start of Zoey's story, and fans affirm they need the series to be renewed for Season 2. Taking to Twitter a fan wrote, "Thank you for being amazing writers this season!!! @nbc do these people right and being them back next season! #ZoeysPlaylist."
