5. On screen together
Playing in the show Drake and Josh was not their first performance on screen together. The pair were also starring on The Amanda Show, a sketch comedy series created by Dan Schneider. After the cancellation of The Amanda Show, Schneider began writing the show Drake and Josh and the rest is history.
Drake and Josh became one of the best rated shows from Nickelodeon. The show became well know over time, and proved to be very popular by the youth. According to the creator Dan Schneider the last season of Drake and Josh was booming! The show had many fans and it really shocked them that there wasn’t coming another season.
Drake & Josh was never canceled. The term “canceled” usually applies to a network ending a TV show due to poor ratings. That never happened with Drake & Josh. Drake & Josh ended because everyone felt it was time to say goodbye. Both Drake Bell and Josh Peck had been with Nickelodeon for nearly 8 years. They were ready to move on and try new things. So, Drake & Josh ended because of a mutual decision by the stars, the network and Dan Schneider. We were all very sad to say goodbye to the show, but Nickelodeon was excited about the creation of a new TV series for Miranda Cosgrove called iCarly.
