The live-action comedy "Sam and Cat" starring Ariana Grande and Jennette McCurdy seemed to be refreshingly entertaining for awhile. However, the show will not be with us much longer.

It's true that Nickelodeon has cancelled "Sam & Cat." There were rumors there were many behind the scenes conflicts in the comedy "Sam and Cat" which had something to do with Nickelodeon's decision not to move forward with the show for another season. A network spokesperson told The Hollywood Reporter in a statement that Nickelodeon does not have plans to produce more episodes of "Sam & Cat."

McCurdy and Grande co-starred in "Sam & Cat." The show was given an impressive 40-episode season order last July after only four episodes. The show is a spinoff of "Victorious" and "iCarly." In the show Sam, who is played by McCurdy, and Cat, who is played by Grande, become best friends and unusual roommates who started a babysitting service together. A network spokesman said they were proud of the show and wished everyone on the talented cast the best of luck.

The decision by Nickelodeon to cancel the show came after 21-year-old McCurdy hit the headlines earlier this year following reported salary issues and racy photos leaked of her on the web in March. McCurdy didn't appear at the network's "Kids' Choice Awards" even though "Sam & Cat" won the TV comedy prize and Grande won TV comedy actress.

Grande has commented about how much she appreciates having had the chance to appear in "Sam and Cat." She addressed the cancellation of the show on Facebook on Sunday reports TV Guide. Grande said she wanted to extend her thanks to Nickelodeon for making a childhood dream of hers come true and for being a family to her. It's sad to see "Sam and Cat" go as fans already are looking forward to reruns of the show.
