It’s been four years since the cast of Victorious worked together on the show, but that doesn’t stop them from staying super close. Ariana Grande had a mini reunion with former co-stars Leon Thomas and Matt Bennet, which led to Grande showing off a hair transformation. And her new ‘do happened to be an amazing tribute to her Nickelodeon character Cat Valentine. 

Thomas and Bennet attended Grande’s Dangerous Woman Tour last week at the Forum in Los Angeles. They popped backstage to greet their old pal and couldn’t help but pose for an adorable photo, which Thomas posted to Instagram a few days after the show.

“Here’s a cool pic from the other night backstage at Ari’s concert,” Thomas wrote. “Shout out to @jonescrow for taking this photo. 📸”

The photo is playing with our nostalgic emotions, because at quick glance, it looks as if Robbie, Cat, and Andre are back together again at Hollywood Arts! Buuuuut they’re not.

Victorious is no more, but it still lives on in our memories — and our Instagram feeds.

Grande was obviously feeling the nostalgia as much as we were, because not long after their mini reunion, she took to her Instagram Story to show off some wigs she was trying on. She decided to throw on a bright red wig, and of course looked exactly like Cat. She even titled it “Miss Valentine.” It was magical.

So now we can’t help but wonder if a reunion/reboot might be happening for Victorious. Grande is clearly one of the busiest pop stars in the world, but she seems to be feeling the Victorious feels, so anything’s possible!
