Yesterday, 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!”
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?
