Nickelodeon viewers said goodbye to Victorious 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.

While the series is officially over, some fans have hoped for a reboot over the years. A few stars have even spoken to the possibly of reprising their roles.

“I’m not saying that there haven’t been discussions, but I’m just saying, who knows?” Victoria, for one, told Entertainment Tonight in March 2021. “I mean, at this time, I don’t think that there are any concrete plans, [but] you never know what’s going to happen in the future.”

Liz, for her part, revealed that she would “clear my schedule for” if something came about.

“No matter how much work I’m doing, or how inconvenient it would be to get it together, that’s something I feel like is really important, and we all believe that,” she shared on The Zach Sang Show in January 2020. “I think that would be amazing. I want to do it, I really want to do it. We all want to do it. I can’t see why anyone would say no. Everyone’s down, and if they’re not, they suck.”
