Victorious: Nickelodeon TV Series Cancelled; No Season Four

Victorious no season fourNickeloedeon has decided to cancel their Victorious sitcom after three seasons and 60 episodes. The cable channel released a statement saying that they “will not be moving forward with production on a fourth season of Victorious following the final season that will premiere this fall.”

The statement continued, “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.”

Created by Dan Schneider, Victorious revolves around Tori Vega, a teenager who’s accepted into the Hollywood Arts High School, a school for talented teens in various performing-arts fields. The series features the talents of Victoria Justice, Leon Thomas III, Matt Bennett, Elizabeth Gillies, Ariana Grande, Avan Jogia, and Daniella Monet.

Schneider addressed today’s cancellation in a blog post:

Hey guys!
If I misspell anything in this post, please forgive me – I’m in the back seat of a car, typing on my phone! Okay, first things first… There is a whole NEW season of Victorious coming your way. We just finished shooting 15 new episodes, and they’re amazing. If you love Victorious, I feel sure you will love the NEW episodes coming! By now, a lot of you have heard that Victorious will not be returning for a 4th season. That is true. This was the network’s decision – not mine. Please understand: Almost all Nickelodeon shows have a life of about 60 episodes. We made around 60 episodes of Drake & Josh… of Zoey 101… and we made 41 episodes of The Amanda Show… and all those shows were big hits. So, it’s not unusual for a Nick show to do a run of just 60 episodes. I would love to have made more than 60 of Victorious, but that’s how it usually goes.

We’re extremely proud of the show, and all we’ve accomplished. Also – and it’s really important that you know this – the network’s decision about Victorious had nothing to do with Gibby or Sam & Cat. I promise. Even if there was no Gibby and no Sam & Cat – the network still would have ended Victorious after its 60-episode run. I know that some of you are upset and angry – and while I feel terrible about that, I’m also flattered by it. I really appreciate that you care so much. It means you love the show, which makes me feel very proud. 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. They all wanted Victorious to continue – so did I. But remember! Stay psyched about the 15 new episodes of Victorious coming your way!

And I hope you’ll continue to support Victoria Justice, and me, and all the stars of Victorious. I can almost guarantee you – they will make a big impact on the future of entertainment. And finally… of course… I will keep making the best, funniest TV shows I know how to make, for as long as people have fun watching them. I’ll see you online later, and I’ll try to answer some of your questions. Thanks for listening. As always, please be nice to each other.

Love, –Dan

Victorious will be the second of Schneider’s series that will end this year, along with iCarly. Still, he’ll continue to be busy with two recently announced iCarly spin-off pilots — Sam & Cat, headlining Jennette McCurdy and Ariana Grande, and Gibby starring by Noah Munck.

What do you think? Do you enjoy Victorious? Are you sorry to hear that the show has been cancelled?

    I have a great idea for a new TV show. Like “sam&cat” you should put some cast from “victorious” and some cast from “¡Carly” and put them together. Like Carly,Jade,Beck,and Fredie.the all go to a universaty in Europe were Carly lives. But Beck and Jade are still together.Carly sudenly falls for Fredie .Fredie is still in love with Sam and tries yo forget her by deating Carly. The tv show shock be about their new lives and romances.

  2. Sad person :((( says

    I love victorious but I hate the Robbie dude and his stupid
    Puppet because I think he such a nerd and poor
    Of his real mom Cz I think he is a pain in the but

    It is difficult to deny that Victorious was the best produced, and most likeable, of young
    people’s programs. It was a gem. All one can do is hope that someone will regroup the
    cast and channel it into a sequel series, featuring the same characters. Likely what sank
    the series was economics. It had so many stars…..many paychecks to write. Lots of
    musical production numbers meant a higher price-tag. If sufficient big-bucks backing can be found, maybe a sequel series will be possible.

    Why Nickelodeon, why! Also, why is nick coming out with new and stupid TV shows and taking off quality shows to make room for them!

    THIS IS STUPID :< why cancel victorious when it is doing so damn well all over the world. This show i find AWESOME! Call me sad but I am a 15 year old girl and i watch this show everyday, its my main obssession. The characters are fantastically designed and the way each character's personlities interact with eachother, i find very amusing 😀 my dreams would have come true if Dan re-created Victorious into a more mature version (similiar to 'Glee') and more plots would be available to all characters (and 'jori' would be allowed ;D) i have become so obssessed with Victorious that i have started to write my own plots for the show and dream of them happening. The fact that victorious is being cancelled just crushed my ideas :(
