The rumors continue to swirl that Nickelodeon’s smash show Sam & Cat is about to get canceled after just one successful season, following star Jennette McCurdy‘s naked photo scandal. While the network has yet to make an official move, the question remains: should the show get the boot?
In early March, several selfie photos of Jennette McCurdy in lingerie were leaked to the internet. McCurdy, who’s 21, responded almost immediately on Twitter: “To anyone disappointed: I sent those pics to 1 person. You can connect the dots. Shocked someone would stoop so low. I just speak w/ candor,” then added, “In related news, I’m blasting ‘Let It Go’ on repeat.”
The show hasn’t been picked up yet for a second season despite its success, and production has ground to a halt. Is the network angry about the salacious pics? “The photos caused no issues between McCurdy and the network, and we have the utmost respect for her,” Nickelodeon said in a statement. “We are wrapping up what was an unusually long production cycle of Sam & Cat, and everyone is understandably tired.”
Be that as it may, McCurdy didn’t show up to Nickelodeon’s Kids’ Choice Awards this weekend, and said on Twitter: “It has to do with how nickelodeon treated me. That’s all.” Hmmm. Along with rumors that McCurdy is feuding with co-star Ariana Grande, it sounds like Nick has got its hands full with this series.
