The Nickelodeon series Victorious, which ran from March 27, 2010-February 2, 2013, was a hit sitcom that both millennials and Gen Z audiences adored.
It was yet another time the network brought viewers into the world of a performing arts school with a Latina lead. Previously, it was the short lived but well-received Taina series that combined comedy and musical talent for a winning story about a girl looking to achieve stardom and learn the tools of her trade.
In Victorious, Hollywood Arts High School teachers worked to take diamonds in the rough and form them into the elites of the industry. Or at least that’s what they were supposed to be doing. The main cast and recurring characters typically got up to hijinks and performed bonkers plays, skits, sketches, and more as they attended class and stretched their abilities.
