Nickelodeon's hit show iCarly made Jennette McCurdy a star, and although the show will air its series finale in November, the 20-year-old doesn't have to worry about what comes next.

The network has tapped McCurdy and actress Ariana Grande to star in a spinoff tentatively titled Sam & Cat. The series will follow the girls' characters, Sam Puckett from iCarly and Cat Valentine from Victorious, as they become roommates and start a baby-sitting business.

Sam & Cat will be produced by Dan Schneider, who is behind Nickelodeon shows iCarly, Victorious, Zoey 101, and Drake & Josh.

"I couldn't be under a better person's wing, so I'm really happy about that decision," McCurdy said in a recent interview. "I haven't seen a script ... so I'm dying for information."

McCurdy describes taping the series finale of "iCarly" as emotional. "The last day of shooting was really sad. There was a lot of crying and there were a lot of hugs going around. None of us wanted to say goodbye really."
