Zoey's Extraordinary Playlist is being resurrected for a festive special.

The NBC musical comedy-drama was axed earlier this year after just two seasons, but the door remained ajar for future opportunities.

Now, The Roku Channel has announced a feature-length movie based on the award-winning show that'll kick off production in Vancouver this month, and it's set to be titled Zoey's Extraordinary Christmas.

Roku's head of original scripted programming Colin Davis said of the announcement: "Zoey's Extraordinary Playlist is the kind of show that doesn't just entertain people, it speaks to them. The show has a healing power about it, which is brought to life by the incredibly talented cast through music and dance.

"That connection with the audience is what makes bringing a holiday-themed film like Zoey to life with the original cast so special. We are absolutely thrilled to call Zoey's Extraordinary Christmas our first Roku Original film and make it available to both long-time fans and new ones on The Roku Channel this holiday."

The action itself will follow on from season 2's finale, with Zoey still navigating her workload, family life, love and everything in between.

Original cast members Jane Levy, Skylar Astin, Alex Newell, John Clarence Stewart, Andrew Leeds, Alice Lee, Michael Thomas Grant, Kapil Talwalkar, Mary Steenburgen, Peter Gallagher and Bernadette Peters are all reprising their respective roles.

"I am so extremely grateful to The Roku Channel for helping us get Zoey to sing again. I can't think of a more appropriate time to hear someone's heart song than the holidays. And Zoey's Extraordinary Christmas will be an opportunity to provide the fans and new viewers alike a chance to all tap their toes and get in the holiday mood," commented creator Austin Winsberg.

Zoey's Extraordinary Christmas will be available on Roku streaming devices & TVs, Sky Q and NOW streaming sticks.
