It has been over a decade since the hit Disney Channel series Suite Life of Zack & Cody aired its final episode in 2008. However, the cast members have continued to find success in their respective careers since then. Let’s take a look at what they have been up to.
Cole and Dylan Sprouse, who portrayed the mischievous twins Cody and Zack Martin on the show, began their acting careers at a young age. Suite Life of Zack & Cody catapulted them to superstardom. Following the conclusion of the show, the Sprouse siblings went on to star in the spinoff series, The Suite Life on Deck, which aired from 2008 to 2011. After taking a break from Hollywood to pursue their education, they made a comeback in the entertainment industry in the late 2010s. Despite their success in other projects, both Cole and Dylan still hold a special place in their hearts for their Disney days.
In a heartfelt Instagram post in March 2020 commemorating the show’s 15-year anniversary, Dylan expressed his gratitude for the series, stating that it had a profound impact on their lives. He shared a photo from the pilot episode, reminiscing about the early days on set. Cole echoed similar sentiments in a Vogue interview in March 2021, confessing that he still has a deep fondness for The Suite Life, even after finding success on The CW’s Riverdale.
Ashley Tisdale, who portrayed the teenage employee Maddie Fitzpatrick on the show, has also remained connected to her Suite Life co-stars. In 2015, she shared a reunion photo on Instagram, giving fans a glimpse of their enduring friendship. Tisdale further revealed her close bond with the Sprouse twins during a game of Elle’s “Thirst Trap” in December 2019. When asked which brother she would spend three months in a remote location with, she jokingly chose Dylan, citing his prompt text message replies compared to Cole’s occasional silence.
While the Suite Life of Zack & Cody may be a nostalgic memory for fans, the cast members have moved on to new ventures and continue to make their mark in the entertainment industry. Their enduring camaraderie and affection for the show serve as a testament to the lasting impact of Suite Life on both the cast and its dedicated audience.
