Zoey's Extraordinary Playlist Season 2 Trailer Teases Peter Gallagher's Return
People 2hrs ago

What once was dead can live on in a heart-song — at least on Zoey's Extraordinary Playlist.

Included in an exclusive trailer for the new season of NBC's whimsical musical dramedy is a scene featuring Zoey (Jane Levy) and her brother David (Andrew Leeds) watching a video of their father Mitch (Peter Gallagher), who died from a rare neurological disease in the season 1 finale.

"I know there's no roadmap for moving on," Mitch says in the clip, "but you have to move on."

It's clear that the new season will see Zoey and her family, which also includes her mother Maggie (Mary Steenburgen), explore their grief and try to move forward following the devastating loss.

Of course, Zoey will have plenty more to navigate with her job — it appears she's getting promoted and will be moving into an office, running things on the fourth floor at SPRQ Point — as well as her unresolved love triangle with coworker Simon (John Clarence Stewart) and best friend Max (Skylar Astin).

"We don't want to be in competition," Max tells her in the trailer. "You're not a prize..."

"Or a commodity to be won," Simon adds, completing the sentence. Clearly, they're gearing up for heart-song we can't wait to see. (Yeah, those are back, too.)

Max gets a few more dreamy moments in this trailer: we see him and Zoey sharing a romantic candlelit meal, and later, he gives Zoey a shield ring. "I just thought you'd want a little extra strength, you know, when you need it," he explains.

"I'm feeling 100 things at once," Zoey says, which pretty much sums up what it's like to watch the show.

"We can do this," Zoey says at the end, taking a deep breath.

20 must-read health books
The Health section of your local bookstore or online book retailer looks different than it did a couple of decades ago, when titles like Food-Free at Last: How I Learned to Eat Air or The South Beach Diet Supercharged were popular picks. Still today, authors—including would-be physicians, B-list celebs and underqualified fitness experts—dole out “health advice,” trying to convince readers that running themselves ragged with dieting and strenuous exercise will make them thinner, prettier, and happier. In fact, it has had an adverse effect, especially on women. The cruel dieting culture, incessant calorie counting, and little to no representation of health experts from diverse communities, along with the unrealistic standards set by the beauty and fashion industries, have led to eating disorders and severe mental health issues. Today, coupled with wellness, the topics covered in health and well-being books focus more on making healthy choices daily, keeping active, practising self-care, and being mindful of our mental health. Thanks to the body positivity movement, and some notable influencers in this space, we know that healthy bodies come in all shapes and sizes. This is also a time when we are hearing from more underrepresented voices in this space, making health advice and wellness tips more inclusive and relevant for all. Start the new year off with motivation, stories, and advice on how to live a healthier, happier life that works for you. Get moving by adding these 20 must-read health books to your cart.
