Character Info

Zoey is the unimaginably smart, pretty, popular and stylish member of the Johnson family. Behold the world's most perfect teenager! Zoe usually gets along with Dre, considering she's his favorite kid. While she can easily be annoyed by her, Zoey has a very close relationship with Diane and often does her hair for her.

Zoey, 15 (Season 1), has everything going for her. She's pretty, popular, and super smart. However, she is dripping in privilege and unearned entitlement. Zoey's idea of success is rooted in material things, rather than hard work. The definition of accomplishment for Zoey? To have 100,000 Instagram followers.

Zoey, often mocks her siblings, but in "Hope", she is seen angry at her brother for wanting to go down and help protest at the Black Lives Matter event, as she is scared that he'll be brutally murdered or arrested. Her mother, Bow, takes a moment to tell Dre, that she was scared that Zoey didn't know how to feel.


  • A reoccurring gag in the show is that Zoey’s biological father is Rick Fox.
