Nickelodeon hasn’t renewed Sam & Cat for a second season but they might as well have. The cable channel has just doubled their first season order, bringing the season total to 40 episodes, reports THR.
The June 8th series premiere was the cable channel’s biggest live-action launch in three years, attracting 4.2 million viewers.
“It’s a very tall order but it also feels great. The show has been so well-received, and competition is greater than ever these days. Making a hit show is even more challenging today than, say, 10 years ago,” Sam & Cat creator Dan Schneider said. “It’s a little daunting to do 40 episodes in your first season, but what makes it fun is the success, because we’re all sharing in that.”
Production on the intial episode order will wrap late this month. The writers will start working on the additional 20 episodes of Sam & Cat in September.
There’s no word on when those installments will start running but only four episodes of the initial order have been aired so far.
What do you think? Are you glad to hear there’s even more Sam & Cat on the way?
