In a few months, Jennette McCurdy will be saying goodbye to iCarly. But she won’t be saying goodbye to her character Sam Puckett.
Nickelodeon has tapped McCurdy and Ariana Grande to star in a new spinoff tentatively titled, “Sam Cat.”
According to The Canadian Press, the series will feature Sam Puckett from iCarly and Cat Valentine from Victorious. The two girls will meet when they become roommates and try to start a babysitting business.
McCurdy is excited for her new show but also said that she was “emotional” about iCarly will be ending this year.
The 20-year-old actress said:
“The last day of shooting was really sad. There was a lot of crying and there were a lot of hugs going around. None of us wanted to say goodbye really.”
Sam Cat will be produced by Dan Schneider, who has produced hit shoes like iCarly, Victorious, and Zoey 101 for Nickelodeon. McCurdy said that she is excited about working with Schneider on her new project.
“I couldn’t be under a better person’s wing, so I’m really happy about that decision. I haven’t seen a script … so I’m dying for information.”
