iCarly’s Nathan Kress and Victorious Castmates Elizabeth Gillis and Matt Bennett Join Sam & Cat Stars Jennette McCurdy and Ariana Grande in Double-Reunion Special
Nickelodeon will host an unforgettable reunion when iconic characters from mega-hit series iCarly and Victorious join forces for an evening of comedy in the first-ever hour-long Sam & Cat special, “#TheKillerTunaJump: #Freddie #Jade #Robbie,” premiering Saturday, Jan. 18, at 8:00 p.m. (ET/PT).
In the hour-long special, despite Cat’s fear of a personality clash, Jade (Cat’s good friend from Hollywood Arts) and Sam meet and hit it off like old friends, leaving Cat feeling left out. Nona advises Cat that where she comes from, if someone steals your friend, you steal one of theirs. Cat takes this to heart and takes Sam’s phone to call Freddie, Sam’s hometown friend and ex-love in Seattle. She lies to Freddie and gets him to rush down to LA under the guise that Sam has been in an accident. When Freddie arrives at the girls’ apartment, he finds himself in the middle of a roommate quarrel. In order to even the score, Sam befriends Cat’s dear friend, Robbie, and the girls’ jealousy spirals out of control.
Meanwhile, Dice has won an entire tank full of man-eating tuna fish in a poker game and is forced to hold them in a shipping yard while he figures out how to afford storing them. Sam suggests that he earn the money by creating an event where a daredevil makes a treacherous jump over the tuna in front of an audience. When Dice’s stunt jumper backs down out of fear, Sam steps up to volunteer much to Cat’s chagrin. To put a stop to it, Cat locks Sam in a closet and attempts the jump without anyone knowing, putting everything in jeopardy.
