Well it seems that Nickelodeon has indeed cancelled Sam & Cat. The sitcom is ending after one extended season.
A combined spin-off of Victorious and iCarly, Sam & Cat finds Sam Puckett (Jennette McCurdy) and Cat Valentine (Ariana Grande) becoming friends and roommates. To make money they start an after-school babysitting business. Maree Cheatham, Cameron Ocasio, and Zoran Korach co-star.
The series was initially picked up for 20 episodes and they started airing in June 2013. It was such a big hit that the cable channel ordered 20 more after just one month of airings.
The series was on track to be renewed for a second season but some backstage issues derailed Sam & Cat towards the end of its first year of production, resulting in only 36 episodes being produced.
The sitcom was later put on “permanent hiatus” and Nickelodeon was expected to make a final decision about the show’s future at a later date.
Well, they appear to have quietly made that decision and the show is over.
The cable channel recently started airing promos promoting that just two episodes remain. One runs tonight — “#WeStealARockStar” — while the series finale of Sam & Cat will air next
Saturday Thursday at 7:30pm. It’s titled “#GettinWiggy.”
7/13 update: Nickelodeon has released a statement regarding the cancellation, “Nickelodeon will not be producing more episodes of Sam & Cat… We are very proud of the show and its very talented cast and we wish them all the best.”
What do you think? Are you sorry that Sam & Cat has been cancelled? Do you think the show should have been renewed?
Sam and Cat was 1 of the best shows that nickelodeon has ever produced and to here its being cancelled after 1 season is 1 of the most horrible things ive heard yet. It makes me and so many people i know not even wanna watch nickelodeon anymore.

I just cant believe nickelodeon is letting this happen. It really was 1 of the best shows to have ever been… Read more »

i think that they are a good combination of girls and they are both very talented. i think it sucks that they cant continue the show for whatever reason tell the backstage crew to get it together. this shows early ending was a let down just like Victorious.

I’m devistated that Sam & Cat is ending! I grew up watching ICarly and often looked foward to seeing a new show every week. Even Victorious was a small part of my childhood. Sam was taken from ICarly and Cat was taken from Victorious to put a brand new show together! Sam & Cat even included Stacy, a girl from one of my most favorite Nickelodeon shows: Zoey 101! My friends and I can’t believe that Sam & Cat is cancelled, since it brought back so many memories! None of the others shows on Nickelodeon have caught my attention because… Read more »
