Nickelodeon decides not to pick up the show for a fourth season, but 15 new episodes of season 3 have been filmed and will air soon.

'Victorious' Canceled After Three Seasons, Creator Asking Fans Not to Be Angry

Another Nickelodeon show is coming to an end. After canceling "iCarly" earlier this year, the network has just announced it pulls the plug on "Victorious". "Nickelodeon will not be moving forward with production on a fourth season of Victorious following the final season that will premiere this fall," the children's channel said in a statement.

The network added, "We are very proud of the show, its very talented cast, and our audience will continue to see many of them in upcoming new Nickelodeon projects." The third and last season premiered in January this year, but there are 15 new episodes left before the show takes its final bow.

Soon after Nickelodeon announced the cancellation, creator Dan Schneider took to Twitter and his blog to address it. Stressing that it was the network's decision, not his, Schneider pointed out that "almost all Nickelodeon shows have a life of about 60 episodes," so "Victorious" cancellation after its 60-episode run isn't unusual.

"I would love to have made more than 60 of Victorious, but that's how it usually goes," he wrote. Claiming that the decision about "Victorious" had nothing to do with "Gibby" or "Sam & Cat" which were recently picked up by the network, he said, "I know that some of you are upset and angry - and while I feel terrible about that, I'm also flattered by it."

"But I ask that you please not be angry with Victoria, or Leon, Liz, Ariana, Avan or ANY of the Victorious cast members or staff," Schneider pleaded with fans. "They all wanted Victorious to continue - so did I."

Another Schneider-created series "iCarly" will wrap up its last season in November. Some of the stars, Jennette McCurdy and Noah Munck, will headline spin-off shows, "Sam & Cat" and "Gibby" respectively. McCurdy will star opposite "Victorious" starlet Ariana Grande in the former show.

I love victorious and I'm gutted its being canceled but Sam and Cat is starting. I can't wait as Cats my fav character. I feel really upset its stopping but youtube have episodes and dvdS. That 60 episode thing really does suck though! At the end of the day it's not the staff or casts fault. It seems they want victorious to continue. Ariana is right dont take it out on them. Icarly was scrapped which was stupid but why why why victorious?!

I don't really care for any nickelodeon show expect their old shows like Drake and Josh, Zoey 101, and the Amanda show. I somehow find Cat extremely annoying. I also find Gibby and Nevel really annoying.

NOOOOOOOO! After iCarly was canceled that was the best show on Nick!!! idk what to do with my life now!! It was my fav show! I hope nick gets less views so they regret it and bring Victorious back!

Okay, I'm not really sure how I feel about this. Confused, angry, sad but mostly disappointed. Once all these other retarded shows came on, I always thought "We'll at least we still have iCarly and Victorious. They canceled iCarly but I understand why. So Victorious was the only good show they had left and en they cancel it. I guess Nick wouldn't know a high quality TV show if it hit them in the face. Victorious won and was nominated for some of the most prestigious awards, is the most watched show on Nick, and has a very high rating. They cancel it for no good reason. The cast wanted to continue, the creators wanted to continue. They keep throwing that whole "60 episode limit" garbage in our faces but iCarly had over 100 episodes because it was popular. Victorious is just as popular, if not more, than iCarly and they don't even give it series finale. WTF Nickelodeon.

So, let me get this straight, Victorious was nominated for an Astra Award, BAFTA Award, 4 EMMYS (2 of which include Outstanding Children's Program) and won Kids Choice Awards for Favorite TV Show 2 years in a row (2012 and 2013) and Nick cancels it. Like what? WHAT!!??! They must have lost some serious IQ points.

this is so stupid victorious was an amazing show and the only reason most people watch nick so great job nick you just lost about half of your fans you IDIOTS! I now LOVE sam and cat its so funny!I think that it was a good idea Toledo their names from their previous shows as well. But nick is gonna make a brand new show with new cast members they should use people that are young that aren't going to bail for education or some thing I just loved victorious and how the singing and dancing wasent stupid and cheesy

Cat still goes to Hollywood Arts on Sam and Cat so maybe on one episode they'll show her school?
posted by The Miz on Jul 22, 2013
Umm WTF! This is like a trend now for Nickelodeon they air a show until it gets popular and alot of fans than they cancel it. Another one of my favorite shows Kid vs Kat recieved the same fate. I hope those shitbags at the studio rethink this decision. Oh and they didn't even give Victorious a proper ending just as a final "Fuck You" to the fans

As a mom of a 10yr old who loved Victorious and iCarly, this is really crap! Those were two great shows for pre teens. Why leave on junk like Degrassi? That is the most disgusting show on a network for kids! All the new shows are not near as good and won't be. I'm really turning against Nick!

I never really cared for this show. i liked i Carly alot more.

Victorious is really a great show! It is a part of my life. And icarly too.. But I love victorious the most.. And nickelodeon is really going nuts. I mean its 2013 now, victorious is really over.. But just whyy?! Nick took away a great big show. Even icarly. They took it away. They're left with not great shows like victorious and icarly and etc. You see.. You know wizards of waverly place? Its one my my faves too. The series i love the most are wizards of waverly place and victorious and icarly but they're all gone. I'm stucked in re watching all of its episodes. Parts of my life is really gone. And i cant stand it loving a show and being gone. Well i know every show has their ends. But not these ways. Not ny cancelling the show and not done with all 60 episodes. So not fair! After this long speech by just using my phone, im tired and my hand hurts so my point is i miss those shows and i just want them to have a maybe one last season. If there would be.. Damn please i'll do anything for it. :(

Hi everyone it's Victoria Justice here thank you so much for voting me Australia's hottest. Everyone I am so sad the show has to close. All of the actors didn't want it to close. The Blame goes on the producer. I wanted to keep acting for you guys. I will star in another show which I can't tell you the name of right now. I love you guys your are Awesome. You made me shine.

Why the heck are you guys trying to bring Spongebob into this? Spongebob is my childhood as well as a generation. It was successful and continues to be as it aims at children as well as adults. Victorious and iCarly were aimed at teens which is a smaller group. I personally did not like iCarly but I absolutley loved Victorious; however I feel they should have done a better 'ending' for the Victorious finale.

Everybodu here is mad that icarly and victorious were cancelled.. I'm bummed out about this decision by why is everyone attacking spongebob??!! SpongeBob is an awesome cartoon that is funny and kids love!! Besides, before all these shows came out, nickelodeon was about cartoons and kids game show with slime.. Maybe this is what nickelodeon needs, just cartoons and kids game shows with a lot of sliming..

I hope that Victoria will get a new show on nick hopefully. Or they will change their mind but I bet they won't I hate the people who decided to cancell victorious All there is to watch is Wendell and vinnie but that's only on Saturdays. Spongebob is boaring so I'd fairly odd parents
posted by Alex on Mar 13, 2013
Please just cancell spongebob I'm very up set that they cancelled victorious that show motivated me to never give up and now u Probroly will give up Nick just made a big mistake a lot of people will stop watching nick They where talking about 60 episodes but nick and fairy odd parents have been going on for about 10 years I'm very sad:( but its not the casts fault it's nick I'll Probroly just keep playing Call of Duty bo2 :(

Also, at least I-Carly got to "wrap it up", instead of just being cancelled. Nick is out of touch with kids anymore. Their new programming sucks.
posted by Robb7707 on Mar 10, 2013
Great show to watch with my 10 year old - LOVE the cast, the show, the music - I've noticed a sickening trend Nick, Wendle & Vinnie is a little more adult oriented than I would like, with recent episodes having the adult saying things like "PISSED OFF". REALLY??? What the hell? I won't let me daughter watch your horrid channel anymore!

I love the show victorious very much. and found it very sad that the show is on the end now.. because it give me the hope to always continue, and never stop. but now it gonna stop. I and i think many others are very sad about the ending. but i always hope that it still go on. but I dont think so.. So we give them the ending what they deserve. A beautifull ending. Victorious would always be a part of me.. *RESPECT FOR THE CAST OF VICTORIOUS I LOVE THEM AND I'M ONE OF THEY BIGGEST FANS..*

Nickelodeon please don't cancel victorious because a lot of peaple like it for example me every time I miss 1 episode of victorious I would litteraly freak out you all make shows for us fans to watch but you all cancel the shows we like for example victorious , I Carly , drake and josh etc. why don't you all just cancel spongbob because they already crossed 60 episodes and if you nick peaple cancel victorious the only options I have to watch on TV is 617 ,550 but the channel I love the most is nickelodeon if nick peaple cancel victorious you would just make fans sad . So please please please nick peaple don't cancel victorious think about the fans.

Victorous and iCarly is inappropriate for the age group it was being advertised to. The show is misdirecting the youth. Nick allowed these shows to be aired and they were hits. Nick made their money and still are. They want you to love and miss these shows so you can mindlessly spend on Victorious and iCarly. Stop being confounded by Mtv style shows on kids television stations and read a book that will actually raise your intelegence quotient. Don't like to read? Exercise. Be Beneficial to your self and others. Victoria Justice is getting her currency from this happening. What do you get from watching this show? An extra 30 pounds and a below average intelegence quotient. Think or wither is the difference between the scholar and the stripper that saw Elizabeth Gillies and Ariana Grande dancing on a table in a karaoke bar on Victious.

(Which will be a PRETTY long time) Like how Spongebob Sqaurepants is aired for such a long time now? It'll be so sad if both iCarly and Victorious end!!! NOOO!!! :(

I don't get it. why does all the good shows have to be cancelled or stop playing? There's nothing good playing on the tv anymore, the only show i watch now is Victorious because it's funny, entertaining and creative. Why can't Nick let people choose what to continue and what to end? because we're the people who's watching tv. EVERYTHING ON TV SERIOUSLY SUCKS IF VICTORIOUS DOESN'T CONTINUE!

How can you tell us not to be mad? That Victorious is the worlds favorite show! We all love Ari she so cute and funny on Victorious. I love Liz's meanness (On the show). I love Victoria and Leons voice and Avans hair! VICTORIOUS= WORLDS BEST SHOW!!

Who cares theres ONLY 60 episodes to a show? We actually like Victorious. Cant you keep Victorious? And why not? It's already reached 60 episodes? SPONGEBOB HAS GOT TO 204 EPISODES AND 9 SEASONS? Why cant Victorious go to 9 episodes like Spongebob. Victorious is better than Spongebob. Everyone here thinks so.

I may like that there making 'Gibby' and 'Sam and Cat' but the original show's ARE going to be missed. They don't understand that! Drake and Josh is one I still watch today and remember watching when I was young. My sister L is obsessed with Zoey 101 and remember's watching it when she was young also! They just keep giving us new show's that are good, but then they cut them off! It's not fair and not good for the public veiw of Nick. This is my opinion, and I just wanted to voice it. Signing off, Miami F. Jones

Yeah this sucks beyond anything I've ever heard. On Wednesday 15th August at 4PM EST, on Twitter, we will try to trend: Give Victorious A Proper Ending Maybe more. Either way this show was too good to cancel. If twitter or Facebook asked how many fans or what not there are THOUSANDS would rise up. Think about the fans Nick. Just give us our shows and we'd be pleased. Otherwise Nick is down the drain. Ratings and all! Just something to think about.
