Zoey (Jamie Lynn Spears) is the main character in the series. Zoey is the older sister of Dustin Brooks and the roommate and best friend of Dana Cruz (Season 1) Nicole Bristow (Seasons 1–2) Lola Martinez (Season 2 onwards) and Quinn Pensky; she is also the best female friend of Chase Matthews. Her other friends include Michael Barrett, Logan Reese, and James Garrett. Zoey enjoys basketball and designing clothes. She is also quite good at playing disc golf and acting and owns a pink Jet-X scooter.

In "Goodbye Zoey?" (the third movie), she moves to Covington, a preparatory school in London, England, while her dad works there. She later returns to PCA to tell Chase her true feelings after overhearing him tell Michael and Logan that he misses and loves her, but Chase has already transferred to Covington to be with Zoey. They try to date via webcam but decide that it would not work out and that they would have to wait until Chase returns to PCA after a whole semester.

While Chase is in London, Zoey moves on and begins to date new student and Logan and Michael's new roommate, James Garrett, and, before prom, he tells her that he loves her. Zoey, who is unsure of her feelings, decides to break up with him, though they remain friends. After a long wait, Zoey and Chase share their long-awaited first kiss and officially become a couple in the series finale "Chasing Zoey."

In Zoey 102, Zoey is now a single, 32-year-old, struggling TV producer for a reality series called "LOVE: Fully Charged". She reunites with most of her old friends from PCA at Quinn and Logan's wedding (for which she is the maid of honor), including those two, Chase, Michael, Stacey, and Mark. Things between Zoey and Chase are tense, the reason being that the two were supposed to embark on a romantic getaway in Hawaii after high school, but Zoey was nervous of things between them failing again and bailed on him, leading to their subsequent breakup and lack of contact for the next 15 years. Zoey apologizes and the two warm up to each other, eventually revealing that they have both maintained feelings for each other after all these years. They kiss and end up getting back together.

Dustin (Paul Butcher) is Zoey's younger brother. Besides being his fiercest protector and closest confidante, Zoey becomes her brother's classmate at the newly co-ed PCA. As a child prodigy, Dustin enjoys sharing an eighth-grade geometry class with his equally savvy elder sister. He also helps Quinn Pensky with her scientific experiments when he's not talking his way in and out of sticky situations.

Whenever Dustin gets in over his head, Zoey is always the first one to rush to her brother's aid. Although her protective behavior gets on Dustin's nerves from time to time, he loves Zoey too much to hold that against her. In the season 2 episode "Bad Girl", Dustin dates a girl named Trisha Kirby. By Season 3, not only is Dustin friends with all of the main characters, but he also spends much time with children closer to his age. When Zoey moves with their parents to London, Dustin stays at PCA. In the TV movie "Chasing Zoey," he goes to the prom with Quinn but storms out when he thinks he is being used and disappears afterward. In an alternative ending: Quinn apologizes to him, and Dustin later dances with an unknown girl.

Dustin did not appear in Zoey 102, though he was mentioned by Zoey to now be married with children.[4][5]

Danielle (ex-girlfriend)(Zoey 102)

Chase (Sean Flynn) is the main male character in Zoey 101 and the first person that Zoey meets at PCA. He is from Baltimore. A running gag is that people will make fun of Chase's bushy hair. Chase has a "secret" crush on Zoey, but he is too afraid to tell her. He is known to be very clumsy, usually falling down stairs. It was revealed in the episode "Favor Chain" that Chase has an encyclopedic knowledge of all things having to do with comic books. Chase has a dog named Chester, mentioned only once in the episode "Lola Likes Chase." Chase has shown to be very gullible, as seen in "New Roomies", where, to win a game of foosball, Zoey tells him to “look at that huge hamster”, and "Quarantine" when he believes that everyone died of Quinn's germ.

He works at PCA's Sushi Rox restaurant for the first three seasons. He is frequently seen carrying a guitar (and sometimes also playing the cello) Chase's crush on Zoey strengthens between Seasons 2 and 3, and at the same time, there are hints that Zoey also has a slight crush on Chase. However, Chase decides to hold back his feelings for her when he thinks he and Zoey are just meant to be friends.

In the TV movie "Goodbye Zoey?", Zoey is offered a chance to go to London with her parents and attend Covington Preparatory School, but she wants to ask Chase about it. However, he overhears rumors that she had already decided to go without talking with him. This hurts him, so he acts very bitter when Zoey comes to talk with him. He sarcastically convinces her she should go and he does not say goodbye to Zoey when she leaves.

Chase learns from Michael about how much Zoey cared about his opinion and regrets his actions. Chase soon begins hanging out with a girl named Gretchen, who looks like Zoey but has an opposite personality. Logan and Michael finally talk to Chase about it and he finally admits to missing Zoey, as well as to being in love with her. Due to a webcam malfunction, Zoey overhears and learns of his feelings for her. This leads to Chase moving to Covington so he can be with her, exactly at the same time that Zoey moves back to PCA so she can be with him. They talk to each other via video chat, and decide to go on a video chat "date", but it does not work out at all, due to a malfunction with the video chat. They decide to put off their relationship until Chase returns from England. Chase has a roommate at Covington named Colin (Benjamin Diskin).

In the series' final episode, "Zoey 101: Chasing Zoey", Chase returns to PCA, and he and Zoey kiss. Later, it is revealed that they have become a couple and they spend the summer together in Hawaii.

On September 18, 2015, a video aired on TeenNick that reveals what Zoey said about Chase on a DVD in the episode "Time Capsule" (which aired on the same day in 2005). Chase and Zoey are no longer dating as Chase is seen proposing to a girlfriend named Alyssa. Before he can finish the proposal, Michael bursts into the restaurant and reveals he has dug up the time capsule to retrieve Zoey's DVD. Although Chase had forgotten, Michael reminds him that Zoey promised to tell him in 10 years what she said about him on the DVD, so he did not have to wait 20 years for the scheduled time capsule opening. Since they could not watch the video without a DVD player, Michael instead wrote down what Zoey said and reads it to Chase. Zoey said she really cares for Chase but suspects that he has a crush on her, reveals that the feeling may be mutual and thinks Chase might even be her soulmate. Chase happily thanks Michael, takes back the engagement ring, and excitedly exits the restaurant to find Zoey.[6][7]

In Zoey 102, Chase is now an elementary school teacher and has a new girlfriend named Danielle. He reunites with Zoey and many other PCA alumni at Quinn and Logan's wedding (for which he is the best man), and things between him and Zoey are tense due to her ditching him on a vacation in Hawaii after high school, which led to their breakup and subsequent lack of contact for the next 15 years. However, after admitting that he and Danielle had actually broken up weeks before the wedding, he and Zoey eventually warm up to each other, profess their persisted love for one another, share a few kisses, and end up getting back together.

Dana Cruz

Portrayed byKristin Herrera
In-universe information

Dana (Kristin Herrera) is one of Zoey's roommates who appears only in Season 1. Dana is a tomboy and good at sports, particularly basketball, skateboarding, and sleeping; she hates when people wake her up. She frequently argues with her roommate Nicole Bristow.

Dana's confrontational attitude is comparable to that of Logan Reese, whom she could not stand, although both have quite a bit in common and went to a school dance together. Dana has a strong-willed personality and will often try to do things herself, as shown in the episode "Jet X." She tends to be thuggish, very aggressive, and lazy. Dana can be devious and knows how to mess with Logan.

In Season 2, Dana accepted a European student exchange program to study in Paris, leaving the rest of the series. She was initially written to be Logan's girlfriend, but the role was given to Quinn Pensky.[citation needed] Dana appeared in a total of thirteen episodes, all in Season 1. In "The PCA Survival Guide," her name is mistakenly Dana Ramsey. She is a slob according to Nicole but she can sometimes be sweet. It's unknown if Zoey or anyone else at PCA kept in contact with her afterward. She appeared on "PCA Confidential" but only in flashbacks.

The character was written off the series after Nickelodeon thought that Herrera looked too old for the part.[8] Dana has the second-fewest appearances of all the main characters in the series, present for all of Season 1 and not seen again.

Dana did not appear in Zoey 102, though her name was mentioned when Danielle, Chase's new girlfriend, mistook Zoey for her.[4]

In-universe information
OccupationStudent (formerly)
Music Producer (Zoey 102)

Michael (Christopher Massey) is Logan and Chase's roommate and best friend. Michael is a natural athlete who plays the flute. He and Logan regularly urge Chase to open up about his feelings for Zoey. Michael gets along with practically everyone at PCA. He is a very loyal and supportive friend who loves to make people laugh (he once became obsessed with making Quinn laugh when he found out that she doesn't think he's funny).

He also had a web show with Chase, called The Chase and Michael Show, which was said to be watched by only nine students at PCA initially and was cancelled for a short time by Dean Rivers in the Season 2 episode "Broadcast Views". Michael is a good singer, when he is not in front of girls he likes. He is also sometimes the test subject of Quinn's science projects. Michael likes to play with his Clackers, a toy which everybody else hates. On several occasions, when he does not wish for a certain course of action to be taken, he babbles that, "You can't—!" Someone then usually does what he said could not be done, causing him to respond by saying, "He/She just—!"

In Season 3's "Drippin' Episode", he coins a slang word, "Drippin", and neither Chase nor Logan credit him. In the Season 4 episode "Rollercoaster", it is revealed that Michael has an immense fear of roller coasters, a secret that Logan spreads around campus, much to Michael's humiliation. Zoey convinces Michael to go on a coaster at a local theme park he is afraid of initially, and he learns to love riding them. Lisa becomes his girlfriend, who is also friends with Zoey. His father gives him a stick-shift car to drive Lisa to the prom.

Michael has the second-most appearances in the show, after Zoey.

Michael appeared in the short video called "What did Zoey Say?" (released in 2015), where he gave Chase the CD that contained what Zoey had said about him ten years prior.

In Zoey 102, Michael is now a successful rap producer. He reunites with many of his fellow PCA alumni at Quinn and Logan's wedding, for which he is the officiator, though Stacey takes over the role when Michael loses his voice. He also reveals at the end of the movie that he wrote a song inspired by the slang word, "drippin'", that he made up in the aforementioned "Drippin' Episode".

Portrayed byAlexa Nikolas
In-universe information

Nicole (Alexa Nikolas) is a student at PCA and originally from Kansas, where her father owns a juice company. She is the second friend Zoey makes at PCA and one of her roommates in the first two seasons. Nicole admires Zoey for her good ideas when she needs help. She is "boy-crazy" and bad at sports, particularly disc golf and basketball. Nicole is a typical girly girl who can be a little ditzy yet very sensitive. She feared the thought of new roommates after her rivalry with Dana Cruz (Season 1) but got along with Lola Martinez (Season 2).

In Season 2, Nicole is revealed to be a straight-A student who gets distracted by the cute boys in her class; until Quinn, and Lola hypnotize her only to see boys as her grandfather. She is later sent to an all-girls school after being diagnosed with "Obsessive Male Gender Disorder" (OMGD) as revealed in the Season 3 premiere "Surprise". She is never seen again, and Quinn replaces her as Zoey and Lola's new roommate. Nicole is mentioned several times throughout Season 3, but not in Season 4. It's also never revealed whether Zoey or anyone else at PCA remained in contact with her afterward. She appears in all 26 episodes of Seasons 1 and 2. She also appeared in flashbacks in the episode "PCA Confidential".

Nicole was written out of the show after Season 2 following the departure of her actor Alexa Nikolas. Although for years it was reported that Nikolas was fired, Nikolas claimed in a 2019 interview she had actually quit, and alleged abuse and bullying by the cast and creative team.[9]

Nicole did not appear in Zoey 102, nor was she even mentioned or alluded to in any way.[4]

Significant otherLogan Reese (boyfriend, in love with, series)
(husband, film)
Mark Del Figgalo (ex-boyfriend)

Quinn (Erin Sanders) is an intelligent girl and one of Lola and Zoey's best friends. She is from Seattle, Washington. She is best known for working on crazy experiments (referring to them as "Quinnventions"), so other students think she is a freak. Quinn is curious most of the time and is outlandish with her experiments. Quinn overlooks the dangers of most of her experiments, which almost always tend to go awry. Examples include a breath spray that causes uncontrollable laughter, an excessive hair-growth formula, or a humane mouse trap that shoots a plasma bolt that knocks people unconscious.

Quinn plays the trombone and has six toes on her right foot, as revealed in the Season 1 episode "Quinn's Date." In the Season 2 episode "Quinn's Alpaca," it is revealed she has a pet alpaca named "Otis" back in her hometown. She also has a pet rat, a spider named "Herman," and a snake named "Marvin." For the first two seasons, Quinn lived by herself. She only once had Zoey as a roommate until they had disagreements. However, Quinn becomes roommates with Zoey and Lola starting in Season 3 after Nicole leaves.

Quinn originally dated Mark Del Figgalo until "Quinn misses the Mark" where they begin to grow apart. At one point, Mark thinks it would be nice to put their relationship on hold, and Quinn dumps him when he starts dating Brooke Margolin.

Quinn also once had many minor conflicts with Logan Reese, but they began dating after her break up with Mark. They keep it a secret out of fear of ridicule, especially when they think Michael might have seen them hug. Logan and Quinn later try to have their first official date at Vaccarro but it is interrupted. Quinn takes Dustin to the PCA prom in "Chasing Zoey," so she does not have to go with Logan and reveal their secret. They finally unveil their relationship, having grown tired of the stress of keeping it a secret, and reveal they are in love with each other at the prom.

In Zoey 102, Quinn is now a successful inventor, and it is revealed that she and Logan are engaged. They reunite with several other PCA alumni at their wedding, which goes awry at first, but thanks to Zoey's innovative thinking, the ceremony ends up being successful, leading to Quinn and Logan's marriage.

Significant otherQuinn Pensky (girlfriend, in love with)
Wife (sequel film)

Logan (Matthew Underwood) is the rich son of a famous film and TV producer, named Malcolm Reese. Logan likes to take pictures of himself and autograph them to give out to girls at PCA. His dad's finances provide all the boys' dorm room appliances (or whatever Logan might want to buy). He is known for being sexist and especially for his big ego. He is shown to be overly competitive, such as faking a leg injury "Hands on a Blix Van", racing in "Michael loves Lisa", and gaming in "Back to PCA".

Although Logan is typically portrayed as being less intelligent in school, it's revealed in the Season 3 episode "Zoey's Tutor" that he is very gifted in chemistry, smart enough to tutor Zoey. His grandfather, whom he visited every summer as a child, works as a chemistry professor at Caltech. Logan has also exhibited street smarts on many occasions, such as giving the gang clever ideas. He also enjoys being socially/physically active and making out with girls. Many girls are attracted to Logan, but some are turned off by his cocky personality. Earlier seasons portrayed him as having a slight crush on Zoey on numerous occasions until he dates Quinn Pensky, Zoey's best friend and roommate.

In the TV movie, "Spring Break-Up", it's revealed that he has a beach house in Santa Barbara. Despite his cockiness, he continues to be good friends with Chase and Michael. However, unlike Michael, Logan is not afraid to mock Chase for his crush on Zoey. When Chase tries to replace Zoey with another girl in "Goodbye Zoey?", Logan and Michael have an intervention for Chase. Logan helps Chase admit how much he misses and loves Zoey by ripping the head off a stuffed giraffe Zoey gave him, showing that he does care for Chase and wishes for him to be happy.

Despite constantly annoying Zoey with his egotistical attitude, Logan cares for her too. He saves Zoey from being expelled after she goes too far in a prank against the boys in the episode "Prank Week." Logan stands up to the fighter for being too violent towards her and gets beaten up, showing how far he is willing to go to protect his friends. He and Michael also stand up for Chase in a fight against Vince Blake's gang.

In Season 4, Logan and Quinn begin dating but keep it a secret as he no longer looks for other girls. They try to go to Vaccaro for their first official date but it is interrupted and in the movie Zoey 101: Chasing Zoey, Logan takes Stacey Dillsen to the prom to keep his relationship with Quinn a secret. Logan and Quinn announce their relationship at the prom when Stacey is trying to kiss him and he instantly shouts that he loves Quinn. She returns the message, and they seal their announcement with a kiss.

In Zoey 102, Logan is revealed to have inherited his father's fortune, as well as proposed to Quinn. At their wedding, they reunited with many of their old friends from PCA, and despite hitting a few bumps in the road, the wedding was a success and he and Quinn were married.

In-universe information

Lola (Victoria Justice) is an aspiring movie star who came to PCA after Dana moved out. She first appears in the Season 2 premiere episode "Back to PCA", becoming Zoey and Nicole's (later Quinn in Season 3) new roommate. Lola first pretends to be a "freaky goth chick" as an acting exercise on her first day at PCA, frightening Zoey and Nicole. However, they later find out the truth in the end. Lola's dream is to become a famous Hollywood actress and win an Oscar award by her 19th birthday. Her true acting talent becomes apparent in "Girls Will Be Boys" when she fools Chase and Logan into thinking she is a boy. She is overly confident in a dream in "Son of a Dean" when she says it is her "destiny" to win a raffle to the premiere of the movie Peaches 'n' Cream.

She can talk in a convincing British accent, as shown in "Dance Contest". Lola is afraid of people in big costumes; due to an accident with a man in a giant hot dog costume when she was younger, as revealed in "Zoey's Balloon".

Lola can also tell if a boy is a good kisser by watching him eat an apple as she identified her crush Leaf, from "Curse of PCA", as one. In the episode "Vince is Back", it is revealed that Lola likes Vince, who returned to PCA after being expelled. She kisses Vince four times after to find out how much he has changed. It is then clear that the two are dating.

In the series finale, "Chasing Zoey", Vince takes Lola out to the prom. The Pacific Coast Academy website mistook her name as Lola Camacho in "Lolascopes".

Lola did not appear in Zoey 102, although her name was mentioned when Danielle, Chase's new girlfriend, mistook Zoey for her. She was also shown in pictures from their time at PCA that Zoey had in her phone.[4]

James (Austin Butler) is Zoey's ex-boyfriend and Logan and Michael's new roommate. He is originally from Santa Fe, New Mexico. James takes Chase's old bedroom, much to the dismay of Michael and Logan. They make it very clear that they do not want him around and he eventually gets the point and leaves. Logan starts a rumor that James and Zoey are dating. Michael comes to James's new bedroom and apologizes, inviting him back to live with them. The two of them get Logan to admit that the rumor he spread about James and Zoey was untrue. Later in the same episode, James and Zoey kiss and become a couple. James repeatedly helps the girls get back at Logan.

In "Chasing Zoey", James gets Zoey a necklace with an inscription that says, "i love you". She does not talk to him and ends up breaking up with him, saying she loves him but "there's something in the way". They decide to remain friends. In the alternative ending to the final episode, he dances with an unknown girl, implying that he has fallen for someone else and will leave Zoey alone.

James did not appear in Zoey 102, although he was shown in pictures from their time at PCA that Zoey had in her phone.[4]

Significant otherQuinn Pensky (ex-girlfriend)
Stacey Dillsen (Wife)

Mark (Jack Salvatore, Jr.) is Quinn's ex-boyfriend. Before he and Quinn broke up, he was involved with most of her experiments. Mark made cameos throughout Season 1, making his first appearance in "New Roomies" as Dustin's student. He made his only major appearance in "Quinn's Date", and became Quinn's boyfriend after the episode. He has no emotions and is portrayed as being very boring, although he does smile sometimes, but not often. According to Quinn; he is very cute and dreamy, but to Zoey and her roommates, Dana, Nicole and Lola, he is not cute at all. He kissed Quinn several times; however, the first time they kissed was in "The Radio", two years after they started dating. He loves salami and likes plain (no butter, sour cream, etc.) baked potatoes; he is lactose intolerant. Mark also collects rocks, as shown in some of the later episodes. In "Quinn Misses the Mark", he breaks up with Quinn and dates a girl, named Brooke; who dumps him because he is not exciting. Michael, Logan, Chase and sometimes Zoey usually just call him by his last name, "Del Figgalo", whereas Quinn and Lola usually call him "Mark". Michael and Logan also sometimes call him "Del Figgs". Mark collects antique calendars and likes to knit. The girls Mark has dated are: Courtney (Season 1), Quinn Pensky (Seasons 1–4), Brooke Margolin (Season 4), and Stacey Dillsen as he is seen dancing with her at the end of "Chasing Zoey" (Season 4).

Mark appears in 28 out of 65 episodes throughout the series.

In Zoey 102, Mark is revealed to have married Stacey, and become the field producer for her popular murder podcast. He reunites with several PCA alumni at Quinn and Logan's wedding. Mark pursues a lead that suggests that Todd, Zoey's fake boyfriend, is a serial killer, but he and Stacey are led to believe that the lead was bogus (when, unbeknownst to them, it was actually legitimate).

Murder Podcast Host (Zoey 102)
Significant otherMark Del Figgalo (Husband)

Stacey (Abby Wilde) is a student at PCA. She has a very noticeable lisp. She has an obsession with cotton swabs and white glue, using it in different arts and crafts, and she sings a song; "you can sip it in the morning, sip it in the evening, even at a quarter to three, "'cause i like sassafras, you like sassafras, we like sassafras tea!".

Stacey has a crush on Logan Reese because of his muscular physique and frequently calls him "hot and spicy", although this repulses and irritates Logan. Stacey briefly becomes the roommate of Lola and Quinn in "Goodbye Zoey?", after Zoey leaves to go to a boarding school in London.

In "Chasing Zoey", Logan (Quinn's secret boyfriend) asks Stacey to prom, so nobody would suspect that he and Quinn were dating. While Michael tries to teach Mark how to drive a stick shift, Mark accidentally hits Stacey, causing her to lose her lisp; which allows her to speak well.

Stacey began as a recurring character in Season 3 and was present in 31 of the 39 combined episodes making up Seasons 3 and 4. Unlike several other main characters, Stacey appears in the episode "PCA Confidential" and not just in the flashbacks from past episodes.

Stacey's character has made cameos (where her lisp "relapses") throughout iCarly and Sam & Cat; such as two appearances in Season 4 of iCarly ("iStart a Fan War" and "iHire an Idiot". Stacey appears in a hospital on Sam & Cat after a bike accident. Later, it is revealed that she graduated from PCA several years ago and is a sophomore at San Francisco State University. However, it is unknown if any of this information is canon to the Zoey 101 timeline; implying that her lisp has gone.

In Zoey 102, Stacey is revealed to have created a popular murder podcast, with Mark, her husband, as her field producer. She reunites with several PCA alumni at Quinn and Logan's wedding, and takes Michael's place as the officiator when he loses his voice. Stacey and Mark receive evidence that suggests that Todd, Zoey's pretend-boyfriend, is a murderer that they had been searching for, which, little do they know, he is.

Jeremiah Trotman

Jeremiah (Creagen Dow) is the school anchorman (who does the PCA news); who reports on all the happenings around PCA. He takes his job very seriously, and can always be spotted wearing his trademark orange Converse as part of his anchorman attire. After most of his broadcasts, he pauses, then says "courage". In "Chasing Zoey", he sees Zoey alone and is interested in taking her to the prom, even if he has to get "rid" of his date, Martha. He plans on leaving school after graduation to head to New York with hopes of becoming a network news anchor.

Jeremiah appeared in 14 episodes of Zoey 101, making his first appearance as a recurring character in the Season 2 episode "Election." Jeremiah also makes an appearance in the Season 2 episode "Robot Wars", in the Season 3 episodes "Hot Dean", "Quarantine", "Wrestling", "Son of the Dean", and "Goodbye Zoey: Part 1" and "Goodbye Zoey: Part 2", and in the Season 4 episodes "Rumor of Love", "Anger Management", "Quinn Misses the Mark", "Walk-a-Thon", and "Chasing Zoey: Part 1" and "Chasing Zoey: Part 2".

Vincent "Vince" Blake

Vince (Brando Eaton) first appeared in "The Great Vince Blake", and he is a star football player; who is supposed to be the best high school quarterback on the planet. He is very popular at PCA, a "chick magnet", and a hero who many other guys look up to. Chase seems to be the only one bothered by Vince's special attention and popularity. However, Vince is discovered to be very dishonest, when Chase catches him cheating on a test. Chase turns him in, causing Vince to be put on academic probation. Enraged, he rounds up the football team and beats up Chase, along with Michael, Logan and Mark Del Figgalo, who stand against them with Chase. Henceforth, Vince is expelled from PCA.

Vince comes back in "Vince Is Back", and appears to have had a change of heart. The guys want revenge on Vince for beating them up while the girls decide to just ignore him. However, he and Lola have the same yoga class, and while she tries to ignore him, she can not resist how nice he has actually become and ends up kissing him four times; they later become a couple. Eventually Zoey, Quinn, Logan and Michael forgive him, and they all become friends with him. It is unclear if Chase ever forgives him; Chase does not react to Vince at the end of "Chasing Zoey", when Chase comes back from England. Vince makes his final appearance in "Chasing Zoey", taking Lola to the prom.
