Nickelodeon has opted out of ordering a fourth series of Victorious.

The successful kids' show, a comedy about a performing arts school starring Victoria Justice, will not return after finishing its current run.

Creator Dan Schneider took to his blog yesterday (August 10) to reassure fans that new episodes are on the way.

He said: "We just finished shooting 15 new episodes, and they're amazing. If you love Victorious, I feel sure you will love the NEW episodes coming!

"By now, a lot of you have heard that Victorious will not be returning for a 4th season. That is true."

He added that bringing the show to a close was "the network's decision - not mine". However, the showrunner said that a cancellation at this stage is not unusual for a Nickelodeon show.

He noted: "Please understand: Almost all Nickelodeon shows have a life of about 60 episodes. We made around 60 episodes of Drake & Josh… of Zoey 101… and we made 41 episodes of The Amanda Show… and all those shows were big hits.

"So, it's not unusual for a Nick show to do a run of just 60 episodes. I would love to have made more than 60 of Victorious, but that's how it usually goes."

Schneider's other big Nickelodeon show iCarly will also end its run in November, with the producer already working on two new pilots for the channel.
