Your tween’s crossover fanfiction will soon hit the small screen: New spinoff series, Sam & Cat, starring Ariana Grande (Victorious’ Cat Valentine) and Jennette McCurdy (iCarly’s Sam Puckett) will premiere on Saturday, June 8 at 8 p.m. ET/PT on Nickelodeon. The show will follow the Victorious and iCarly faves as they meet, become best friends and, in a plot twist that will make Baby-Sitters Club adult fans want to cheer, start their very own babysitting service.
The show was created by Nick regular Dan Schneider (iCarly, Victorious, Drake & Josh, Zoey 101). The premiere episode will have total opposites Sam and Cat meet when a wild predicament lands both girls in the back of a moving garbage truck. They then find themselves babysitting three young kids, and soon after, Sam & Cat’s Super Rockin’ Fun-Time Babysitting Service is born.
“Sam & Cat is the perfect vehicle to showcase the amazing chemistry and comedic talents of Jennette and Ariana,” said Russell Hicks, President of Content Development and Production at Nickelodeon, in a release. “Fans will love seeing two of their favorite Nick characters back in action in this wild and hilarious comedy.”
