This may come as a shock, but it’s officially been eight years since Victorious came to an end! Yep, the beloved Nickelodeon show aired its final episode on February 2, 2013, and we cannot believe how fast time has flown by. It seriously feels like it was just yesterday that we were watching Tori, Cat and the rest of the gang on our TV screens, so the fact that it’s almost been an entire decade since it went off the air is seriously blowing our minds!
For those who forgot, the series starred Victoria Justice, Ariana Grande, Matt Bennett, Liz Gillies, Leon Thomas, Avan Jogia, Daniella Monet and more. It first premiered in March 27, 2010, and went on for four epic seasons before it concluded in 2013. It was about a girl named Tori who was invited to attend Hollywood Arts — a prestigious high school that focused on the performing arts. There, she made tons of new friends, faced quite a bit of drama and learned how to truly shine.
But wait, what is the cast of Victorious up to these days, you ask?! We decided to investigate and check in on them all, and boy, have they changed a lot! Most of them went on to become huge stars, and get this — some of them are now parents! Here’s what they’re all doing now…

But that’s not all. The Nickelodeon star released her debut single, called “Gold,” in 2013. She dropped one more song after that, called “Caught Up In You,” but then, she took a hiatus from making music — until last year, that is. Yep, she returned to the music industry and released a new song called “Treat Myself” on December 11, 2020, and it was a total bop.
