A week-to-week network TV musical comedy? Does that mean those advertisements were wrong and misleading? Not exactly. As conveyed in the commercials, the show is vibrant, rocking a good deal of comedy as well as one familiar and very catchy pop song after the next. But what the advertising campaign completely missed is the heartfelt drama throughout the season, which is directly tied to why Zoey gets that MRI in the first place. That ability was zapped into Zoey when she needed it most to help her process some of the greatest challenges of her life. But on top of that, the show also takes the time to address the very personal concerns each of them face. For example, that love triangle.

We knew it was coming but that didn't mean it hurt any less watching Zoey Jane Levy lose her father Peter Gallagher in the season 1 finale of Zoey's Extraordinary Playlist. All season long, Zoey and her family have been preparing to say goodbye to Mitch after his Progressive Supranuclear Palsy illness got worse. And after she saw herself sing "Bad Moon Rising" in the mirror, Zoey had a feeling something bad was going to happen. Her fears came true when Mitch took his last breath and died surrounded by his family. Zoey had one last vision of her father, dancing together as he passed away. It was beautiful, it was moving, and it was downright heartbreaking. The finale continued with Mitch's funeral and ended as everyone left. The Clarke family sat with each other in silence as Mitch's spot on the couch remained empty, and Zoey started to cry. Below, EW got Zoey's Extraordinary Playlist creator Austin Winsberg — who based the series, and this episode in particular, on his own life and experience losing his father to PSP — to break down that emotional finale, tease where the series will go in season 2 if it gets renewed, and more. One of the ideas going forward in season 2 is how does a family move on after death and how does the family move on after tragedy and what are the ways in which we try to rebound and bounce back?
By Nellie Andreeva , Peter White. We hear the order is for 13 episodes. TV are discussing a deal, while Indebted is not expected to continue. But the Jan. After an unusual event, Zoey, who always preferred podcasts over pop songs, suddenly starts to hear the innermost wants, thoughts and desires of the people around her — her family, co-workers and complete strangers — through popular songs. At first, she questions her own sanity, but after getting some guidance from her musically adept neighbor, Mo Alex Newell , and making a breakthrough with her ailing father Peter Gallagher , Zoey soon realizes this unwanted curse might just be an incredibly wonderful gift as she connects with the world like never before. Lauren Graham is special guest star. He referenced his dad a couple times in the season. The big part of it, especially for the family and for Zoey is how do we move on and how do we move on after a tragedy and what does moving on look like and how do we rebound and come back from it?
