Along with taking candy from strangers (don't, unless it's really good candy), getting a zit on prom night (bummer! pop it!), and dealing with that mean older bully in the school hallways (suck it up, they'll be in juvie soon), teenage pregnancy is a must-have subject for any show oriented at those not yet old enough to vote.
So when news broke yesterday that Jamie Lynn Spears, sister of Britney and star of Nickelodeon's Zoey 101, is pregnant at all of 16 years old, it seemed the next few episodes would practically write themselves.
That won't be the case, though, as season four of the show has already wrapped production, according to The Hollywood Reporter. The show is currently airing its third season, which will end early next year. The fourth season will allegedly be the show's last.
As for Spears' next move? Besides adding Lamaze classes to her school schedule, the young actress just wants to graduate from high school.
"I'm going to try to graduate before I do anything else," she told the Associated Press, referring to taking on more acting roles.
Though the other hand in the pregnancy has been named as 19-year-old (his age is not confirmed) Casey Aldridge, Spears told the AP that she has no serious boyfriend. "I kind of just keep my options open," she said. "I have a bunch of friends that I always hang out with, a bunch of guy friends."
