Jamie Lynn Spears has hit back at claims that the hit TV show ‘Zoey 101’ ended because she fell pregnant.
The Nickelodeon show starred Jamie Lynn as ‘Zoey’, who attended a mixed boarding school in Malibu.
The 27-year-old took to Instagram to celebrate the show’s 14th anniversary, sharing a video of the shows opening credits with the caption: “Are you ready? 14 years later…still a jam,” with the hashtags: “#itdidNOTendbecauseofpregnancy #contractwasfinished.”

Jamie Lynn became pregnant with her daughter Maddie when she was 16, which fans always believed was the reason for the show ending.
One fan commented, “Oh wow you didn’t quit because you were pregnant, you waited this long tell us,” to which the actress replied, “Nope, I went home to finish high school and was going to pursue movies.”
Reacting to the hashtag that said the contract ended, another fan asked: “Would contract have been extended if not for pregnancy?” to which she simply replied, “No.”
The mother-of-two continued to praise the show on her Instagram Story, by sharing a series of pics with the ‘Zoey 101’ cast.
She wrote: “Seriously tho, so thankful for this show, and everyone who loved and supported it.”
“I grew up on this show, so it was pretty much my childhood also. Love y’all.”
