Congrats to the cast and crew of Sam and Cat!
The show just got a double season order — which means a total of 40 episodes! (via THR)
“It’s a very tall order but it also feels great. The show has been so well-received and competition is greater than ever these days. Making a hit show is even more challenging today than, say, 10 years ago,” creator/writer/producer Dan Schneider shared. “It’s a little daunting to do 40 episodes in your first season, but what makes it fun is the success, because we’re all sharing in that.”
Jennette tweeted, “Sam & Cat got picked up for 20 more episodes! I get to be mean and eat quality meat for 6 more months and get paid for it!!”
Also, be sure to watch this weekend’s new episode “#TextingCompetition.” In the episode, Cat (Ariana Grande) discovers Sam (McCurdy) is really fast at texting and convinces her to compete in a texting competition against a sweet boy, Butler, who has an overbearing mom.
It premieres on Saturday, July 13th @ 8PM ET/PT on Nickelodeon. Check out a clip below!
