Pop legend Britney Spears’ younger sister, Jamie Lynn Spears, started out as a promising actress as a teen with her own Nickelodeon show, Zoey 101. However, she retreated from the spotlight when she became pregnant with her first child in 2007 at the age of 16 and returned to the role 16 years later after trying her hand as a country music singer. Fans are wondering what Jamie Lynn’s net worth is after she spent so many years away from Hollywood.

What Is Jamie Lynn Spears’ Net Worth?

How Does Jamie Lynn Spears Make Money?

The Louisiana native is perhaps best known for her leading role on Nickleodeon’s Zoey 101 — which aired from 2005 to 2008 — but her career on-screen started a few years prior. She made her debut in Britney’s iconic film Crossroads in 2002 and also had a regular role on the classic sketch show All That. After leaving the comedy program in 2004, she renegotiated a contract with Nickelodeon that paved the way for her breakout in Zoey 101.

The show was a major success and led to a film spinoff, Zoey 101: Spring Break-Up, as well as two 2007 video games, “Zoey 101” and “Zoey 101: Field Trip Fiasco.” One year before the show ended, Jamie Lynn announced her pregnancy — and after the series concluded, she largely retired from acting.

However, she returned to the small screen as nurse Noreen Fitzgibbons, a recurring role on Netflix’s Sweet Magnolias. Jamie Lynn reprised her role as Zoey Brooks in a Zoey 102, a Paramount+ movie sequel to her previous films as a teen which was released in July 2023.

It was announced on September 12, 2023 that Jamie Lynn will be competing in season 32 of ABC’s Dancing With the Stars.
