NEW YORK (AP) -- Nickelodeon announced Monday that "Sam & Cat," which at times was the network's most popular series after debuting just last summer, will air its last original episode Thursday.
Ariana Grande, whose single "Problems" has sold 2.3 million tracks, co-starred on the series with another longtime Nickelodeon personality, Jennette McCurdy.
The series shut down production this spring, four episodes short of a full order amid published reports of turmoil on the set and a falling out between Grande and McCurdy.
While Grande's musical career was taking off, some racy pictures of McCurdy surfaced online.
The creator of "Sam & Cat," Dan Schneider, is making a new series for Nick, titled "Henry Danger." It's scheduled to premiere in the fall.
