The Love Triangle Between Zoey, Max and Simon Is Still Alive In Season 2
Zoey’s Extraordinary Playlist showrunner Austin Winsberg left the love triangle open-ended between Zoey, Max, and Simon at the end of Season 1. Here’s what he told TVLine about why he chose to do that in preparation for Season 2:
I definitely wanted to keep it open-ended going into Season 2, and I didn’t want it to be definitive that she had made a choice for one or the other. I still wanted to put on the table that these are both good guys, who are both viable in their own way. The fact that she’s seeing Max in a more romantic light, but also with Simon coming back in Episode 12 and he’s actually starting his own personal growth and working on himself, it’s going to continue to create different options and challenges for Season 2. I didn’t want to go completely Team Max or Team Simon by the end. But there’s still, hopefully, some questions about what’s going to happen, and certainly with the death of her father, that’s also going to impact where she is at, emotionally, and what she’s going to be ready for leading up to Season 2.
