Zoey’s Extraordinary Playlist appears to have found Max’s workplace replacement: Harvey Guillén (What We Do in the Shadows) will recur during Season 2 of NBC’s musical dramedy as George, a new programmer at Sprq Point.
In the Season 1 finale, Max announced that he was moving on from Sprq Point to pursue other opportunities, so could George — who makes his debut in the Season 2 premiere, airing in 2021 — be filling Max’s spot on Zoey’s team? It sure would line up with the fact that George is “constantly hungering for Zoey’s (and his fellow coders’) approval,” per the official character description.
Guillén currently plays “familiar”/vampire slayer Guillermo on the FX comedy What We Do in the Shadows, which was renewed for a third season back in May. His other TV credits include The Magicians, Eye Candy and Huge.
Our sister site Variety first reported the news of Guillén’s casting.
