Laverne & Shirley ‘reunion’ on Nickelodeon

Nick Logo MediumPenny Marshall and Cindy Williams the lead stars in 1970s sitcom Laverne & Shirley are to be reunited on-screen by Nickelodeon USA.

Marshall and Williams will be seen together in Sam & Cat a teen sitcom which launched earlier this month. The show is a crossover spin-off of both iCarly and Victorious. It stars Jennette McCurdy as Sam Puckett (from iCarly) and Ariana Grande as Cat Valentine (from Victorious).

Like Laverne & Shirley, which proved a hit for ABC America running for eight seasons and 178 episodes,  Nickelodeon’s Sam & Cat is also about two roommates who work together.

Nickelodeon say that Penny Marshall and Cindy Williams have been hired to guest star in an episode as feuding creators of the Salmon Cat Show who will be reunited by Sam and Cat in the storyline.

It will be the first time Marshall and Williams have worked together on a scripted production since Laverne & Shirley ended thirty years ago.
