Victorious: Stars React to Cancellation

Victorious TV series cancelledYesterday, we reported that Victorious had been cancelled by Nickelodean. Though there won’t be a fourth season, there are still 15 new episodes to come. They’ll be released this fall, bringing the TV show’s total to 60 episodes.

Fans were understandably upset by the news and the stars had their own reactions and messages for viewers via Twitter.

Leon Thomas III responded to messages from fans by writing, “Hey I see you guys, but we still have a lot of episodes for you to watch and I have some really exciting news to share. So stay tuned!”

Of the news, Matt Bennett simply noted, “It’s true.” Victoria Justice responded to the news this way, “3 Emmy nominations is not a bad send off… #GoingOutOnTop #LoveUguys :{)”

Elizabeth Gillies wrote, “For those of you who are just hearing the news, please don’t be upset. All good things must come to an end, and Victorious is no exception. Don’t be afraid that we’re all going to drop off the face of the earth, because we’re not. It might be the end of an era, but it’s the start of many new chapters for all of us. Also, remember, there’s still an ENTIRE new season that still hasn’t aired. There are many new, amazing episodes coming your way. Victorious has been an incredible, life-changing journey for all of us, and you guys have been there supporting us every step of the way. The real thank you goes out to YOU guys for being so devoted to the show. For watching all of our episodes, creating awesome websites for all of us, making those amazing fan videos on YouTube (that you know we all watch), coming to all of our concerts, writing us letters, tweeting us about how much you love the show…we seriously have the best fans ever. You guys are the real reason why Victorious has made the impact that it has, and seeing your response to the news just affirmed how dedicated you all are to our show, which means more to us than you could ever know. So, please don’t be upset. As Mikey said, ‘Don’t cry because it’s over, smile because it happened.’ Oh, and get ready for the new season of Victorious… because it’s AWESOME.”

Avan Tudor Jogia was “in full agreement” with Gillies’ comments and also wrote, “Thank you guys for all your support over the years, it’s been a great run. 3 Emmy nom’s and a KCA… modestly #GoingOutOnTop. #Victorious”

And finally, Ariana Grande wrote “Devastated and heartbroken at the news that Victorious won’t be renewed, but so thankful for this experience and the friendships I’ve made. Also, I’ve been seeing lots of tweets about the Sam & Cat show… Victorious not being renewed has NOTHING 2 do with Sam & Cat. I was planning on going back next year to shoot both shows. I was so excited! I love my Victorious castmates so much and would do anything to do more seasons. If the network wants more Victorious episodes, I will be in every one they’ll let me! So I really hope u’ll please understand that.. and please b excited because there’s still an entire season of Victorious that has yet 2 air!”

What do you think about the cancellation? What would you like to tell the cast and crew?

    My kids don’t care that much for Nick shows. However they (and I with them) have never missed an episode of Victorious or ICarly. With both of these shows going away I don’t see much of a reason for the channel to ever be turned to in my household again. Victorious was a show that people of all ages could enjoy without fear of inaproprate content, or storylines that are too young for any age. My mother (who is 73) and my aunts (77 and 78) have enjoyed watching this show, and they never tune into the network otherwise either. I can only hope that the spin-off (Kind of had a hint the show was over when I heard about the spin-off) has as much talent and cohesiveness.

    I like the show and was hoping for a true ending to it instead of them pulling the plug on it. But I also am looking forward to Victoria Justice making more theatical release films so in a way I glad she is done with filming Victorious and ready to see her and others like Ariana Grande doing movies now.

  3. Love Victorious says

    Why!!! I loved that show, for me it was like an iCarly for older kids. It was soooo funny. I would also like to know exactly why it was cancelled. Not Fair.

    I just found out about it today. I started crying into my pillow. I know it’s just a show, but to me it gave me someone to look up to. Elizabeth Gillies is my hero. I wouldn’t be the person I am today with out her….and now that I won’t be able to see her on Victorious anymore makes me feel like I’m being stabbed in the heart. And that goes for Victoria, Ariana, Leon, Avan, and Matt. I just hope that they don’t disappear.

    Just got a call from a fan that show cancelled. Thank you Dan Schneider and Nickelodeon for casting me as Andre’s Grandma — it was fun being loud and crazy on Victorious! I will miss working with such a talented, young cast — you all ROCK! I look forward to seeing your future work and hearing your music!

  6. I love victorious says

    Making this show come to an end i think is the most worst decision nickelodeon could of ever possibly made.In my opinion also agreed by many others, victorious was truely thee best show ever created and aired by nick,there is not one good reason why victorious should be canceled.Also that is a horrible way to end the series ,without even a graduation.Atleast let the cast if victorious finish that and then do what u wish with the series. Renew another season of victorious!.

  7. Cdog says

    Just recently started watching the show. Sorry to see it end…will there at least be a graduation?? (it is high school after all)
