I’m still reeling from the cancellation of ‘Eye Candy,’ but this definitely helps. Victoria Justice is making a return to TV for a LIVE episode of ‘Undateable!’
Yes, you read that right — Undateable is going to do its May 5th episode live! Now we know that Chris D’Elia, Brent Morin, Ron Funches and Rick Glassman are getting another special guest in addition to the audience: Victoria Justice!
Victoria Justice Joins ‘Undateable’ Live Show
Victoria took to Instagram on April 28 to make the announcement:
We have to say, we knew she was working on something. On Monday she wrote, “Life doesn’t always go as planned… #MondayMotivation,” before adding “Headed to rehearsal! I’m filming something really cool next week. You all will get to see it sooner than u think ;) #excited.”
Well this is the perfect role! The NBC show will be doing a live episode on May 5, which is definitely a daring yet really fun opportunity. They’ll actually do it twice, once for West Coast and once for East Coast.
Saying Goodbye To ‘Eye Candy’
This comes just ten days after she announced that MTV’s Eye Candy, in which she played the lead on, was canceled.
“Hi everyone! I wanted you guys to hear it from me first, that the cast and I received news that Eye Candy will not be returning for season 2″ the 22-year-old posted to TwitLonger. “Even though a lot of you are going to feel sad/angry, please know that playing Lindy Sampson, is something that I loved and I will hold dear to my heart. I couldn’t have asked for better cast mates to work with either. They are the most down to earth, talented and kind souls that I am so happy to have met. Then there’s our show runner @Christiantwit1 who is so awesomely talented and made a show that I am so incredibly proud to be a part of. A very special thank you to Jason Blum and the Blumhouse team, you guys are amazing! Jessica, thanks for all your hard work and dedication to Eye Candy. Last but definitely not at all least, thank you to the amazing fans. I saw all of your WW trends (it might be 23 or 24 to date) and your unflinching support. It’s because of all of you that I get to do what I love. I am beyond grateful for that. It made me so happy that you embraced the show the way you did. I was so lucky to have you guys along for the ride, because you made it that much more exciting!”
Are you excited to see Victoria on Undateable May 5?
