Nickelodeon viewers said goodbye to Victorious nearly eight years ago when the show aired its final episode in February 2013.

At the time, the network released a statement per HuffPost announcing that the show would come to an end. “Nickelodeon will not be moving forward with production on a fourth season of Victorious following the final season that will premiere this fall,” Nickelodeon’s statement read. “We are very proud of the show, its very talented cast, and our audience will continue to see many of them in upcoming new Nickelodeon projects.”

The show starred Ariana Grande, Victoria Justice, Matt Bennett, Liz Gillies, Leon Thomas, Avan Jogia, Daniella Monet and more stars, who have all gone on to have pretty successful careers in Hollywood, but why did the show have to end? Some fans are convinced that there was a rift between two of the stars leading to the cancellation, but no bad blood between the Nickelodeon actors was ever confirmed.
