‘Sam & Cat’ Canceled: Ariana Grande Show Ending After One Season
Sam & Cat won’t be returning for a second season, according to the show’s recent promo and a new report.
Before Sam & Cat’s most recent episode on July 12, Nickelodeon released a promo that said there’s “only two more episodes of Sam & Cat left!”
The last episode is set to air July 17, titled “#GettinWiggy,” and Deadline confirms that it will be Jennette and Ariana’s final episode for the show.
“Nickelodeon will not be producing more episodes of Sam & Cat,” the network told the site in a statement. “We are very proud of the show and its very talented cast and we wish them all the best.”
The hybrid spinoff of iCarly and Victorious was initially set for a 20 episode first season and then was awarded 20 more episodes. After some behind-the-scenes issues, only 36 episodes were ultimately made.
The end of Sam & Cat comes after a major controversy concerning star Jennette. Jennette recently dealt with a racy scandal after naked photos were leaked of the 22-year-old. Plus, there have been rumors that Jennette and Ariana really don’t get along.
‘Sam & Cat’ Over: Jennette McCurdy’s Photo Scandal To Blame?
Jennette’s nude selfie scandal stirred up scrutiny at Nickelodeon. After the leak by her ex-boyfriend Andre Drummond, the starlet didn’t show up to the Kids Choice Awards and has since laid low.
“The future of Sam & Cat is hanging by a silky thread after sultry selfies shot by one of the show’s thong-clad stars, Jennette McCurdy, were leaked online last month,” the New York Daily News reported in April.
In addition, there were rumors swirling that Jennette was angry that Ariana made more money on the show than she did, but Ariana dismissed those rumors as “completely ridiculous.”
Jennette also posted a very vicious message about a “trouble friend” who was a “leech for drama and gossip,” and some people interpreted that person as Ariana.
All of this drama seems to have culminated into the end of Sam & Cat. We wish Jennette and Ariana the best in their future careers.
HollywoodLifers, what do you think about Sam & Cat ending? Are you sad to see the show go? Is the cancellation before of Jennette’s photo scandal? Let us know!
