icarly victorious spinoff nickelodeon Nickelodeon orders 'iCarly,' 'Victorious' spinoff pilotsSeveral cast members of “iCarly” will be sticking around on Nickelodeon after the show ends later this year.

The network unveiled a development slate Friday (Aug. 3) that includes pilots for two “iCarly” spinoffs — one of which also spins from “Victorious” — and other projects that feature actors from the series.

“Sam & Cat” will star Jennette McCurdy and Ariana Grande as their “iCarly” and “Victorious” characters, who become best friends and roommates and then start a baby-sitting business together.

The other “iCarly” spinoff is “Gibby,” which focuses on Noah Munck‘s character as he takes a job at a rec center and becomes a mentor to a ragtag group of middle-school kids who hang out there. Munck will also star in a Nick movie called “Nicky Deuce,” based on a children’s book by “Sopranos” actor Steve Schirripa and Charles Fleming.

Nick at Nite has also picked up a series called “Wendell and Vinnie” starring “iCarly’s” Jerry Trainor as Vinnie, a guy who becomes the guardian for his uptight, 12-year-old nephew Wendell (Buddy Handleson of Disney’s “Shake It Up”). The show also stars Nicole Sullivan (“Cougar Town,” “The King of Queens”) as Vinnie’s sister.

Nickelodeon has also picked up a “Monsters vs. Aliens” animated series, a clip-and-interview show called “You Gotta See This” and ordered a pilot called “Instant Mom,” about a 25-year-old party girl who marries an older man with kids.
