Laverne & Shirley Reunite On Nickelodeon Show

The stars of Laverne & Shirley will be together again 30 years after their last shift at Shotz Brewery — just not in their iconic roles.

Laverne & Shirley stars Penny Marshall and Cindy Williams will appear as creators of a 1970s tv show who haven’t spoken in 30 years in an episode of Nickolodeon’s iCarly and Victorious spin-off Sam & Cat.

Although Marshall and Williams have both stayed active in show business since their classic sitcom went off the air in 1983, they have not acted together since. Marshall has focused on directing, while Williams has appeared in television shows, on Broadway, and as a producer of Father of the Bride.

Sam & Cat creator Dan Schneider said it was an honor to write for tv’s “funniest female roommates.” While filming for their appearance takes place, let’s take a look back at some classic moments in Laverne & Shirley history.
