The 29-year-old actress, who starred as the titular character Zoey Brooks in the Nickelodeon series, later revealed on Monday that the cast reunion would be as part of a virtual live event, to celebrate the launch of Spears' new song "Follow Me (Zoey 101)," produced in collaboration with Chantel Jeffries.
"It feels great. Why haven't I been doing this constantly?" Spears joked to ET. "I think life has a way of putting itself at the right place at the right time and this was it. This was the right place at the right time."
"I missed acting and I am just happy to be back and happy to see what is next and happy for everyone to get to meet [my character] Noreen because I love her," she added. "It's really special. I love it and I hope everyone else will too."
