Liz Gillies Reacts To Victorious Cancellation
Sad news for the stars and fans of Victorious. Dan Schneider put the rumors to rest about the series being canceled. He addressed the rumors about the 4th season not happening and he admitted that was true, despite what he and the cast wanted. He stressed that it was Nickelodeon’s wish and had nothing to do with the two potential iCarly spin offs. The only good news that came out of his blog post was that a new mini-season is heading our way, with 15 new episodes. Here are some if the highlights from his blog post about the sad and depressing news.
By now, a lot of you have heard that Victorious will not be returning for a 4th season. That is true. This was the network’s decision — not mine…There is a whole NEW season of ‘Victorious’ coming your way,We just finished shooting 15 new episodes, and they’re amazing. If you love ‘Victorious,’ I feel sure you will love the NEW episodes coming! “I know that some of you are upset and angry — and while I feel terrible about that, I’m also flattered by it. I really appreciate that you care so much. It means you love the show, which makes me feel very proud…But I ask that you please not be angry with Victoria, or Leon, Liz, Ariana, Avan … or ANY of the ‘Victorious’ cast members or staff. They all wanted ‘Victorious’ to continue — so did I.
Liz Gillies decided to respond to the news as well and released the following message to fans-
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.
Liz and Dan both have the right thoughts towards the sad news, but Nickelodeon has yet to address the news. The show is following the footsteps of many other live action series, including Drake & Josh. As of right now, it isn’t clear as to why they chose to can the series, which was has been extremely popular-even more so than iCarly this past year. However, it seems that they are trying to follow Disney Channel and end popular shows around the same time.
How do you feel about this news? I am sad, but I figured the show wouldn’t be far behind iCarly‘s ending. It is a shame and a huge risk on their half. I wouldn’t be surprised if they face a downturn in viewership once both shows end. They haven’t even signed on for more than just pilots, not even full series. I agree with Dan and Liz, though-it isn’t their fault that they are ending the show. I am sure they weren’t ready for it, but they sadly were not in control and they can now move on to bigger things in life.
