There seems to be some problems over at Sam & Cat. Following the leaking of some racey pictures of star Jennette McCurdy online, rumors started swirling that Nickelodean is planning to cancel the popular series.
In addition, TMZ has reported that McCurdy is unhappy with her current salary. She also skipped the recent Kids’ Choice Awards where Sam & Cat won for TV comedy and series creator Dan Schneider was given a lifetime achievement award.
The series is currently on a production hiatus but the cable channel says its a scheduled one. A spokesperson said, “We are wrapping up what was an unusually long production cycle of Sam & Cat, and everyone is understandably tired. We are going into our production hiatus next week, which will give everyone on the show a much-needed rest.”
Deadline reports that the series is on “permanent hiatus” and the break was taken a few episodes early. Members of the crew have been let go.
There are 40 episodes in the first season of Sam & Cat and it’s unclear how many have been finished thus far. The 31st installment is set to air on April 12th.
Though a successful show, Sam & Cat hasn’t been renewed for a second season yet.
