Sam & Cat is an American teen sitcom created by Dan Schneider for Nickelodeon. It is a crossover and spin-off/sequel series of the shows iCarly and Victorious.

The series was picked up for a 20 episode season on November 29, 2012. It began production in January 2013[1] and premiered on June 8, 2013.[2] The first season was doubled to 40 episodes on July 11, 2013 [3][4]


After her best friend, Carly, moves to Italy, Sam travels from Seattle on a motorcycle where iCarly was set to speak about web TV series at Hollywood Arts High School, the setting for Victorious. There, she rescues Cat from a dumpster. The two eventually become roommates and best friends with Dice. They love their freedom and independence but quickly realize that fun and adventure don't come cheap. Rather than get traditional after-school jobs, Sam and Cat become teen entrepreneurs by starting their own babysitting business.[5][6]


Clockwise direction: Dice (Cameron Ocasio), Sam Puckett (Jennette McCurdy) and Cat Valentine (Ariana Grande).

  • This is the first live action crossover series created by Dan Schneider and Nickelodeon.
  • The series airs Saturdays at 8:00 pm.
  • This is the fourth Nickelodeon spin-off behind Rugrat's "All Grown Up" (2003), and "Angelica and Susie Pre-School Daze" (2005) and Jimmy Neutron's "Planet Sheen" (2010).
  • This is the second time characters of iCarly and Victorious meet in a crossover after the crossover special "iParty with Victorious" but the first time in its standalone series.
  • According to Ariana, episodes are filmed on Thursdays and Fridays.[7]
  • After the announcement for the show was made, fans of Victorious expressed dismay because they thought that the creation of this show was the reason for the cancellation of Victorious, although the creator for both shows has since stated otherwise.[8]
  • In the iCarly series finale iGoodbye, Sam is seen at the end driving away on a motorcycle, symbolizing the transition to her new show.
    • However, she is wearing other clothes at the beginning of this episode.
    • Oddly, her clothes in iGoodbye are seen at the beginning of #FavoriteShow, on the sofa-bed.
  • According to Ariana, the show is similar to Drake & Josh and Kenan & Kel, shows Dan Schneider produced previously.[9]
  • The sets are very colorful and creative with the essence of Sam and Cat in it. One of the sets is where Cat lives with her Nona, and another is a unique restaurant featuring robotic servers, where the characters often hang out.[10]
  • The show's premiere date, June 8, 2013, is also National Best Friends Day.[11]
  • Jennette and Ariana will not be singing on the show, but they were rapping in #BabysitterWar.[12]
  • Sam & Cat is based on classic Seventies' sitcoms and follows two young women with different personalities who become roommates and open a babysitting business together.[13]
  • Sam & Cat is the second Dan Schneider show to be filmed completely at Nick on Sunset, excluding Victorious. iCarly was filmed there seasons 1-4 and consisted of 5 seasons, Drake & Josh was only filmed there seasons 1, 2 and 4, and Zoey 101 wasn't filmed there at all.
