Victoria Justice will no longer be making it shine for Nickelodeon. In a blog post by Victorious creator Dan Schneider
, the Nick show mastermind confirmed that his show has been canceled by the network and will not be renewed for a fourth season.
However, Schneider was eager to point out that they recently completed 15 new episodes that will air as the second half of season 3, so there's still plenty more to come from the kids of Hollywood Arts.
This marks the second long-running Schneider-created Nickelodeon comedy to be canceled this year. Earlier it was reported that iCarly
will be ending this season as well.
Schneider also made it abundantly clear that the decision had NOTHING to do with the development of iCarly
and Sam & Cat
. As he points out, most of his previous shows (Drake and Josh
and Zoey 101
) only lasted 60 episodes, which Victorious
will have when it ends its three season run.Victorious
follows teen singing sensation Tori Vega (Victoria Justice) and a group of students as a performing arts high school. One of the show's co-stars, Ariaae Grande, will co-star as her Victorious
character Cat Valentine in a potential spin-off, Sam & Cat
, along with iCarly
's Jennette McCurdy as her iCarly
still has 15 episodes left to air before the show comes to an end, while iCarly
has nine episodes left, with the series finale targeted for November.
While this is sad news for Nickelodeon fans who have come to love both shows, creator Dan Schneider will certainly be back sooner rather than later with more brilliant shows that appeal to teens and older fans alike.(Image courtesy of Nickelodeon)
