M Magazine has just spoken to Victoria Justice, and she revealed that Victorious won’t be returning for another season.
She said: “We will not be expecting a fourth season, this is the first time I’ve talked about it. I just found out a couple of days ago that we’re not coming back. It’s sad because I’ve been with Nickelodeon since I was 12 years old and I became a family with my Victorious cast. We spent a lot of time together and bonded for sure — I’ll look back on the experience very fondly. It’s a little shocking and a little bittersweet, but at the end of the day it might not be such a bad thing — we all want to do our own thing and continue to grow.”
I’m sure everyone is as sad as I am to see Victorious go Thank you for all the laughter you’ve given us! On the bright side, I’m looking forward to see what the rest of the cast will do in the future. Victorious surely isn’t the last of their career!
Leave your opinions below! What do you think about Victorious ending?
UPDATE: Dan Schneider, the creator of the show, posted a blog post explaining why the show is ending. You can read it by clicking here.
I can’t wait to hear the song, along as the rest of her album Ariana also announced that she is working on a new Nickelodeon movie with Jennette McCurdy, Noah Munck, Chris O’Neal, Ciara Bravo, and Noah Crawford. The movie is titled “Swindle” at the moment. Below is a description from Nickpress:
With daring heists, crazy disguises, pie fights and sumo wrestlers, the network greenlights Swindle, an original TV movie featuring an impressive ensemble cast of Nickelodeon stars. When an evil collector cons Griffin out of a million dollar baseball card that could have saved his best friend’s home, he unites a ragtag group of his classmates who need to work as a team to take down the swindler. Swindle is based on a popular children’s book by Gordon Korman. Production will commence this fall in Vancouver, Canada.

Check out our exclusive Just Jared Jr. interview with actress Ariana Grande!
The 19-year-old beauty, best known for her role as Cat Valentine on Nickelodeon’s hit show Victorious, chatted with us about her love for Katy Perry, her upcoming TV kiss and how getting into character actually helped her through a devastating breakup. Check it:
JJJ: We love your concert style! Can you tell us about your dress? AG: Thanks, this was actually made for me by a lady named Barcelona. I found her through a stylist. I was telling her that I don’t really find [many] dresses that I love, because I like older looking things, and she was like, “I can make you something!” So she made me this in a bunch of colors!
JJJ: That’s great! You’ve been singing for a while now. What’s the first song you remember singing as a child? AG: The first song I ever sang out loud was an NSYNC song. I remember I was in the car with my mommy and [when she heard me sing] she was like, “Is that you? Can you do that again?”
JJJ: Does your single “Put Your Hearts Up” represent the rest of your upcoming album? AG: No, it’s completely different. That was more of a commercial sounding pop record. My album is throwback Motown. It’s like modern Motown inspired pop and soul – It’s fun!
JJJ: Do you have a favorite track off it? AG: So far, of the titles that everyone knows, I think “Do You Love Me?” is my favorite.
JJJ: Is it true that you have the same voice coach as Katy Perry? AG: Yes, Eric Vetro. He’s unbelievable! I met Katy actually through him. She’s such a sweet woman. I love her – she’s one of my inspirations, I look up to her. Just meeting her and seeing how cool she was, and nice, and sweet, and kind, and normal made me like, “Thank God for some normalcy in this business.” Because I’ve seen the opposite. I’ve seen some crazy, horrible people so seeing her was so refreshing.
JJJ: Do you remember what you guys chatted about when you first met? AG: She told me I looked really cute and she liked my hair! She said I looked like the Little Mermaid and was like, “Best of luck to you!”
JJJ: That’s so sweet! Speaking of your red-velvet locks, which we also love, what’s the story behind them? AG: Thanks! About an hour before I got cast on the show [Victorious] they called and asked if it’d be okay for them to do anything they wanted with my hair, and I eagerly said yes. I’m happy with their decision.
JJJ: Wow, that’s so spontaneous! Before landing your role on Nickelodeon, you were in the Broadway play 13. What would be your dream role if you ever returned to The Great White Way? AG: I would love to go back and play Audrey in Little Shop of Horrors or Penny in Hairspray. I love the music in both [shows] and both roles are very girly. Penny is just quirky and fun and silly. Then Audrey is shy and would be a different role to play because she’s had a rough past and was abused. She’s also a New Yorker (says in a strong NY accent).
JJJ: Which Victorious character do you think you’d be BFFs with in real-life? AG: Probably Cat. I love her and I adore her. Playing her makes me feel happier.
JJJ: So her positive vibes rub off on you? AG: Yeah, like we were filming one season and I went through this horrible, horrendous breakup. My heart was broken and shattered. I was crying through hair and makeup, like I couldn’t even pull myself together. Then when I started playing Cat I forgot all about it. I was with Robbie (Matt Bennett), Jade (Elizabeth Gillies) and Andre (Leon Thomas) and nothing makes Cat sad really. She’s sort of high on life I guess and playing someone like that just makes me so happy.
JJJ: In future episodes, will fans get to see Cat and Robbie’s relationship heat up? AG: Yeah it will…he kisses me! Cat doesn’t really know how to handle it, she like, “I don’t know!” I think deep down whether they decide to go anywhere with it or not in the long run they’re in love. I think Cat loves Robbie a lot and I think Robbie loves Cat.
JJJ: Speaking of relationships, what’s the best boy advice you’ve gotten? AG: To only be with somebody if they make you feel like the best version of yourself. You can’t sacrifice yourself for anybody, you know?
JJJ: That’s great advice! Who’s your musical crush right now? AG: Bruno Mars!
JJJ: You recently covered Justin Bieber’s song “Die in Your Arms” and it’s already gotten over 1 million views! Is that your favorite song of his? AG: Yeah, I love that one and “As Long As you Love Me” and “Love Me Like you Do”!
JJJ: We heard you’re a big fan of The Wizard of Oz. Are you excited for the upcoming film Oz starring Mila Kunis and James Franco? AG: Yeah, that’s crazy! Of course I’m excited, it’s one of my favorite stories – I love it!
Nickelodeon greenlights spin-off pilots for ‘iCarly,’ ‘Victorious’ from creator Dan Schneider
Although iCarly will soon air its final episode, you may not have to bid farewell to the entire gang. EW has learned that Nickelodeon has ordered spin-off pilots for Sam Puckett (Jennette McCurdy) and Gibby Gibson (Noah Munck) from iCarly creator/executive producer Dan Schneider. Sam’s prospective show also would serve a spin-off vehicle for Cat Valentine (Ariana Grande), a popular character from Schneider’s other Nick comedy, Victorious.
In the tentatively titled Sam & Cat, sassy Sam (McCurdy) and eccentric Cat (Grande) buddy up as roommates and start a babysitting business to fund their adventures. ?Meanwhile, in Gibby (which is also a working title), zany Gibby (Munck) gets a gig at a recreational center where he winds up as a mentor to four offbeat middle-school students.
Both pilots are slated to begin production this summer.
Schneider has enjoyed a long association with Nickelodeon, having created and executive produced Drake & Josh, Zoey 101, and The Amanda Show. He also served as executive producer of Kenan & Kel and All That.
iCarly will conclude its five-season run in November. Meanwhile, Victorious, which will continue its third season this fall, is awaiting word on a fourth season pickup. It is unclear at this time exactly what kind of presence Grande would have on a potential fourth season of Victorious if Sam & Cat receives a series order.
