Victoria Justice shared an open letter with her fans about the “Victorious” finale, which took place on Nickelodeon last night. Here’s what Victoria had to say:
As most of you know by now, tonight is the final episode of Victorious. In honor of this I thought I’d write a letter about my journey on Nickelodeon and most of all my gratitude to all of you.
It all started when I was twelve years old and auditioned for a role on a show called “Zoey 101” for the part of “Lola”. I was cast as a series regular on the second season. I knew my life was going to change in many ways, but I didn’t know then that that role on “Zoey 101” would lead me to almost eight years on “Nickelodeon” (all my teenage years). I remember Dan Schneider approaching me and my Mom about giving me the starring role of my own show. I remember discussing the premise of what the show would be, like it was yesterday. I remember discussing what we would name it and him calling me one day and saying, “I have it, it’s going to be called Victorious”. He was so excited, because he thought it was perfect. I remember him saying, “see, it has your name in the title, along with your character’s name (Tori) and you’re character’s “Victorious” because she makes it into this really cool school.” I thought great, I loved it. From that point on, it’s been an incredible ride.
Our first day of production of the pilot was on my 16th birthday. I remember Dan saying, “some girls get a car for their 16th birthday, but I just thought I’d give you a TV show”. We all laughed and we then started our very first table read. It was all so exciting. At the end of the table read, they surprised me with a big birthday cake, flowers and balloons. It was a moment I’ll never forget. That moment happened Feb. 19th, 2009.
The show aired in March of 2010 right after the Kids Choice Awards and we debuted to record numbers for the network. I remember it like it was yesterday. So, here we are, Feb. 2nd and it’s almost three years later and we are showing our final episode, titled, “Victori-yes”. The cast and I have had so many incredible memories together and we are so touched by the outpouring of support from all of you. The cast and I really do wish we had a proper finale, but it wasn’t to be. So, because we don’t have one, I’m going to tell you what I think happens to every cast member.
While the finale episode of Nickelodeon’s “Victorious” aired on February 2, 2013, it sounds like there might be MORE “Victorious” in the future! Show creator Dan Schneider told fans on Twitter:
I promise to let the network know about this WW trend, and the others, too. We’ll see what happens. —> We Want A Victorious Finale!!!!

P.S. How would you like to see the show end?
The finale of Nickelodeon’s “Victorious” is airing tonight, February 2, 2013. Ariana Grande recently spoke with Cambio about the end of the show, stating:
The chemistry was so unstoppable. The story line just keeps getting better and better. The friendships that I made while making Victorious will last forever. We’ll be best friends until we’re 900 years old.
Are you as sad as Ariana is that “Victorious” is ending? And, do you plan on tuning in for the finale tonight, titled “Victori-Yes“?
