EW has learned that Nickelodeon has ordered spin-off pilots for Sam Puckett (Jennette McCurdy) and Gibby Gibson (Noah Munck) from iCarly creator/ executive producer Dan Schneider. Sam’s prospective show also would serve a spin-off vehicle for Cat Valentine (Ariana Grande).
In the tentatively titled Sam & Cat, sassy Sam (McCurdy, above right) and eccentric Cat (Grande, above left) buddy up as roommates and start a babysitting business to fund their adventures.
In Gibby (which is also a working title), zany Gibby (Munck, left) gets a gig at a recreational center where he winds up as a mentor to four offbeat middle-school students. Both pilots are slated to begin production this summer.
iCarly will conclude its five-season run in November. Meanwhile, Victorious will continue its third season this fall, it's awaiting word on a fourth season pickup. It is unclear at this time exactly what kind of presence Grande would have on a potential fourth season of Victorious if Sam & Cat receives a series order.
Nickelodeon's hit series iCarly has been canceled after five seasons, reports TV Guide. In June, the cast will come together for the last time to film a special iCarly television event that will air in November. Nick president: 'iCarly has been a definitional show for Nick with kid empowerment at its core and irreverent, smart humor that families around the world enjoy. With its classic sitcom format and beloved characters, iCarly will always have a home on Nickelodeon.'
Many of the cast members will stay in the Nickelodeon family. The network has green-lit a new live-action series from Schneider starring McCurdy and a new pilot starring Munck as part of an overall talent deal with the 16-year-old. The network has also green-lit a pilot from producers Jay Kogen and Aaron Kaplan called Wendell & Vinnie, which stars Trainor as a goofball uncle who becomes the guardian to his conservative 12-year-old genius nephew. As for Cosgrove, she plans to attend USC in the fall.
