Sam & Cat Canceled

Nickelodeon fan favorite Sam and Cat canceled after one season.

Ariana Grande and Jennette McCurdy will be following other career options.
Although production has been down since April, Nickelodeon has officially canceled “Sam & Cat” after just one season, a network spokesperson told The Wrap.
The network released the following statement:
“Nickelodeon will not be producing more episodes of ‘Sam & Cat.’ We are very proud of the show and its very talented cast and we wish them all the best.”
Episode 36, titled “#Getting Wiggy” is scheduled to air next Thursday and will act as the series finale. The last four episodes of Nickelodeon's 40-episode order were never shot. “Sam & Cat” will continue to be part of Nick's schedule in repeats.
According to individuals with knowledge of the situation, the time was right for everyone. ”They [Ariana Grande and Jennette McCurdy] are both 21 and are pursuing successful new paths in their careers,” one insider told TheWrap.
“Sam & Cat” was Dan Schneider's spinoff of his other popular shows “iCarly” and “Victorious.” On the show, the girls meet by chance during a bizarre adventure and become roommates, then start a babysitting business to earn extra money.
Several factors led to the show's production problems and later demise, according to insiders.
After the show became a hit, Nick extended the season to 40 episodes — essentially two seasons in one. Emotions ran high as the stars and crew felt exhausted and taken advantage of. The actresses felt they should've been able to re-negotiate their salary with Nick and desperately wanted a break.
At the same time, Grande's music career took off and she didn't want to put it on hold for the show. And on the personal side, McCurdy was dealing with the controversy of nude photos of her being leaked.

This show was lame as hell. I liked Jennette on iCarly (I felt she carried that show anyway) but that annoying ass Cat was a deal-breaker for me getting into it.

I guess Nickelodeon will go on to produce more lame shows now.

Good riddance that show sucked!!! I hated walking by and hearing my kids watching that trash, with that brunette voice I mean what in the hot monkey hell kind of voice was that, and who's bright idea to have a character have a voice like a heavily medicated dead person. at least I Carly was fun and entertaining and I did not walk by my kids and felt the need to fling the PC out the window.
