Fans got some shocking news Friday (August 10) when Nickelodeon announced that their hit show “Victorious” would be canceled following its third season, which is set to air 15 new episodes this fall.
“3 Emmy nominations is not a bad send off,” Victoria Justice, star of “Victorious,” tweeted following the announcement. “#GoingOutOnTop #LoveUguys.”
Now, even though we may not see the halls of Hollywood Arts High School again, it doesn’t mean we have seen the last of Justice, who will be keeping herself very busy in the upcoming months.
In July, Justice wrapped filming of the final season of “Victorious” and a few weeks later she embarked on her first North American tour, the Make it in America Tour.

Last month, we spoke to Justice, who attended the premiere for Katy Perry’s 3-D flick “Part of Me,” and she explained that she was excited and anxious to get out on the road.
“I’m really excited I don’t know what to expect. I’ve never been on tour before and I know that I have a lot of work ahead of me,” Justice said of the tour. “But, you know, it’s going to be really exciting. I’m doing a bunch of covers and a bunch of songs from the show; some new songs.”
“I think my solo music will be different from what people have heard on the show,” Justice told MTV News last year. “I love the music from the show; I think it’s so much fun. So I love all the music, and I love listening to it, but when I do my own stuff it’ll probably be a little more mature, and [I'm] finding my own path.”
Yet, before we hear new music from the 19-year-old, we will see her on the big screen. Justice takes on her first leading-lady movie role as she stars alongside Chelsea Handler and Johnny Knoxville in “Fun Size.”
“I play a teenager named Wren. It’s my senior year of high school and I want to go to this really hot guy’s … senior year party (and I also want to go NYU), and my mom wants to throw her own party on Halloween night and I have a younger brother, so she forces me to babysit him and take him trick-or-treating. So I begrudgingly do this and I end up losing him, and the series of events that take place afterwards get kind of nuts,” Justice teased of the flick, which is the directorial debut of “Gossip Girl” creator Josh Schwartz. “It’s a crazy adventure.”
“Fun Size” hits theaters just before Halloween on October 26.
