Fans’ favorite series Zoey’s Extraordinary Playlist ends its run at NBC after just two seasons, but the Jane Levy-led musical series may still have a future in another house.

According to a Lionsgate spokesperson Zoey’s Extraordinary Playlist is currently shopping for a new home. “In a world where finding a loyal and passionate audience is never easy, we believe there should be a home for this amazing, award-winning show with a passionate and dedicated following,” the spokesperson said.

Sources close to the situation note that there were plans to move the series to Peacock, NBCUniversal’s streaming service, but the plans have reportedly failed. Zoey’s was a critical hit with a 78% rating on Rotten Tomatoes and found a cult following, but viewership dropped in the second season.

The series followed Jane Levy as the titular Zoey Clarke, a computer programmer living in San Francisco. After a strange event, Zoey begins to hear people’s thoughts and feelings, performed through elaborate musical numbers.

Along with Levy, the series also starred Alex Newell, Skylar Astin, John Clarence Stewart, Mary Steenburgen, Andrew Leeds, Alice Lee, Michael Thomas Grant, Kapil Talwalkar, Lauren Graham and Harvey Guillén.
