Icarly To Live On Through Nickelodeon Spin Off 'Sam & Cat'
Hit US teen sitcom 'iCarly' and its impending termination has most certainly been the source of disappointment amongst many female Nickelodeon viewers since the show's final season was announced. However, it looks like 'iCarly' fans are in for a treat as two brand new spin-offs have been confirmed to commence filming.
If you loved Carly Shay then you'll most certainly love her best friend Sam Puckett and will be very pleased to learn that she will appear in her own show 'Sam & Cat' starring Jennette McCurdy (obviously) and Ariana Grande from Nickelodeon's other popular show 'Victorious' in which she plays Cat Valentine. That's right; the same Cat in the aforementioned show. That's two spin-offs in one! The show involves the pair of them becoming roomies and starting their own babysitting business in order to support themselves financially.
The second spin-off stars the rather unusual acquaintance of Carly and Sam, Gibby, played by Noah Munck. Currently with the working title of just 'Gibby', the show features him getting a new job at a community centre for pre-teen kids where he mentors a group of four eccentric centre-goers. The pilot episodes for both spin-offs created by Dan Schneider are set to start being filmed this summer. Schneider has had much experience in working on Nickelodeon and has a long list of hit shows under his belt including 'Zoey 101' starring Britney's sister Jamie-Lynn Spears, 'Drake & Josh', Amanda Bynes 'The Amanda Show' and even executive produced 'Kenan & Kel'.
