If you’re still sad about “iCarly” coming to an end this year, we have some good news for you!
Nickelodeon has given the greenlight to two spin-off pilots of the hit show. One show will star Jennette McCurdy as Sam Puckett and and the second stars Noah Munck as Gibby Gibson.
There might also be another familiar face joining Jennette’s pilot – Ariana Grande. In the tentatively titled “Sam & Cat,” sassy Sam and eccentric Cat (Ariana as her “Victorious” character) buddy up as roommates and start a babysitting business to fund their adventures.
In “Gibby” (working title), zany Gibby gets a gig at a recreational center where he winds up as a mentor to four offbeat middle-school students.
What do you think of these two pilots? Jennette and Ariana are good friends in real life and both are hilarious, so we can definitely see ourselves watching this one.
Production on both pilots are slated for this Summer.

While I'm happy that Noah & Jennette have their own shows. In my opinion, I wish they did something different. To me, I don't think spin-offs don't quite do as well as the originals. Later on, I think it's going to be difficult to transition out of "kid roles". Noah is so recognized as Gibby, but has done more mature stuff like Bad Teacher. For Jennette she did stuff like CSI when she was younger, but I still think it's going to be difficult. Are you guys excited about these spin-offs?
