Big news Victorious fans – the show might be getting a reboot from Nickelodeon!
The network’s president of content and development gave an interview about how some classic shows are going to be brought back in a “fresh new way” and Victorious is one of the shows mentioned. If the show is rebooted, there’s no word at this point if Victoria Justice, Ariana Grande, or any of the original stars will return.
Rugrats, Hey Arnold!, and You Can’t Do That on Television are some of the other shows brought up in the Variety article.
“We are looking at our library to bring back ideas, shows that were loved, in a fresh new way,” the network exec said. “We are getting ready to bring back some of the ones they’ve told us multiple times they want to have brought back.”
ARE YOU EXCITED for Nickelodeon to reboot some classic shows?
“Hi guys, as most of you know by now, tonight is the final episode of Victorious. In honor of this I thought I’d write a letter about my journey on Nickelodeon and most of all my gratitude to all of you.
“It all started when I was twelve years old and auditioned for a role on a show called Zoey 101 for the part of Lola. I was cast as a series regular on the second season. I knew my life was going to change in many ways, but I didn’t know then that that role on Zoey 101 would lead me to almost eight years on ‘Nickelodeon’ (all my teenage years). I remember Dan Schneider approaching me and my Mom about giving me the starring role of my own show. I remember discussing the premise of what the show would be, like it was yesterday. I remember discussing what we would name it and him calling me one day and saying, ‘I have it, it’s going to be called Victorious‘. He was so excited, because he thought it was perfect. I remember him saying, ‘see, it has your name in the title, along with your character’s name (Tori) and you’re character’s ‘Victorious‘ because she makes it into this really cool school.’ I thought great, I loved it. From that point on, it’s been an incredible ride.”
In tonight’s all-new episode “The Bad Roommate,” Andre (Thomas) is fed up with living with his grandmother and calls on Tori (Justice) for help. But when a frustrated Andre moves into the Vega house so he can concentrate on his music, these best friends quickly realize they don’t make the best roommates.
Meanwhile, Jade (Elizabeth Gillies) discovers an unflattering picture of herself on the internet, and conspires to take it down.
“The Bad Roommate” premieres Saturday, January 5th @ 8PM ET/PT on Nickelodeon.
