Depart a Remark
Zoey’s Extraordinary Playlist facilities on the titular character’s skill to listen to individuals’s innermost emotions by means of music, courtesy of a routine MRI gone awry. Nonetheless, the explanations behind the place her powers got here from or why she obtained them are by no means expanded upon in Season 1. Now that the NBC musical has been renewed for Season 2, will that change? Showrunner Austin Winsberg lately revealed that how Zoey obtained her powers could possibly be explored additional subsequent season.
Jane Levy’s Zoey discovered herself in numerous awkward conditions due to her powers. She’d be going about her day when her buddies (and typically strangers) would burst into songs that solely she might hear. These musical outbursts led Zoey to find precisely what the opposite characters have been feeling at any given second. She resisted her powers at first, however she started appreciating them afterward. Will Zoey’s Extraordinary Playlist Season 2 reveal extra about them? Right here’s what Austin Winsberg instructed TVLine:
I really feel like that’s one thing that we will proceed to discover, and I like sort of leaning into the mythology just a little bit, however not on the expense of the human dynamics and characters and relationships, which I believe are extra necessary. In order that’s one thing that I need to proceed to discover and play with, going ahead, and maybe that would change into a much bigger a part of the storyline in Season 2.
I’m all for extra exploration of Zoey’s powers, however I agree that it shouldn’t come on the “expense of human dynamics.” And, contemplating that the musical drama isn’t a sci-fi present, it will be a mistake to go so deep into the mythology and origin of Zoey’s powers for concern of derailing the collection. Outlander, for example, makes use of time journey with out sidelining the characters or counting on the fantastical features too closely.
That mentioned, the exploration of Zoey’s powers may truly develop her as a personality if it’s accomplished properly. She might need acclimated to having her powers in Season 1, however I’d be curious about understanding a bit extra about how they work. If nothing else, Zoey ought to in all probability return to the physician for a follow-up MRI.
Austin Winsberg goes on to say that the mythology surrounding Zoey’s powers is actually “fascinating,” however that it wasn’t explored very a lot in Season 1 as a result of he didn’t need the explanations for why she has musical powers to “overwhelm” the storyline. However, there could be a bit extra time to deal with them for a bit extra in Season 2. We’ll see how that goes.
All speak of powers apart, Zoey will probably be coping with loads of different issues in Season 2. Zoey’s Extraordinary Playlist capped off Season 1 with Mitch’s demise and wake. The sophomore season will possible deal with the aftermath of shedding Mitch and the influence that can have on Zoey and her household.
