In its second season, Zoey’s Extraordinary Playlist continues to explore the feelings we keep buried on the inside, the human impulse for connection, and the undeniable healing power of music and dance. Following a tragedy, Zoey and the Clarke family begin to recalibrate and navigate their new normal. As she finds herself in a new dynamic at work and in her love life, Zoey’s musical powers will continue to both awkwardly complicate and inform her worldview as she attempts to rediscover the joy and connect with those around her.
