Ariana Grande's U.S. Tv series Sam & Cat has been cancelled after one season.

The teen sitcom, starring the Problem hitmaker and actress Jennette MCCurdy, was put on permanent hiatus in April (14) and now executives at the show's network Nickelodeon have announced the programme will not be returning for another season.

A statement issued on Sunday (13Jul14) reads, "Nickelodeon will not be producing more episodes of Sam & Cat. We are very proud of the show and its very talented cast and we wish them all the best."

MCCurdy hit headlines in March (14) after boycotting the network's Kids' Choice Awards and subsequently claiming her absence was in protest of Tv executives who had put her in an "uncomfortable, compromising, unfair situation".

She did not elaborate on the behind-the-scenes feud, but bosses at Nickelodeon refuted the actress' allegations and insisted they had nothing but "the utmost respect" for MCCurdy.
