Nickelodeon Cancels “VICTORiOUS”
VICTORiOUS will finish with 60 total episodes – on par with many of Nickelodeon’s other live-action scripted series. 13 or so episodes are still left to air from the third production season later this fall.
Dan Schneider stresses on his blog that the cancelation of VICTORiOUS has nothing to do with the two iCarly spin-off pilots that were recently announced. One of which, Sam & Cat will also star Ariana Grande in her same role as Cat Valentine from VICTORiOUS. Though Ariana tweeted today that she did plan on filming both roles had the network renewed VICTORiOUS.
Do note that the two Schneider pilots are still just that – pilots. The network hasn’t picked either up for a full series just yet.
Many fans of the show have already taken to Twitter to voice their frustration over the cancelation to Nickelodeon, Dan Schneider and the cast. Dan Schneider says the decision was the networks and not his.
Deadline.com also has a brief statement from Nick on the cancelation.
