This decision also means Schneider’s current show, Game Shakers, has been canceled after three seasons, though his other series, Henry Danger, will continue on for a fifth season.
“Dan and his Schneider’s Bakery team have created a string of lasting, groundbreaking hits over the years including iCarly, Drake & Josh, Victorious, Kenan & Kel and the current number-one hit show on Nickelodeon, Henry Danger. We thank Dan and his Schneider’s Bakery producers, executives and social media team for their immeasurable contributions to Nickelodeon, and we wish them the best in their future endeavors. And Dan and Schneider’s Bakery are proud of the work they did together with Nickelodeon and will always remain big fans of the network,” the network added.
Over the past two decades, Schneider helped launch the careers of some of Nick’s most notable kid and teen actors, including Kenan Thompson, Amanda Bynes, Jami Lynn Spears, Ariana Grande, Victoria Justice, Miranda Cosgrove, and Josh Peck.
Deadline reports the decision comes on the heels of multiple complaints of alleged abusive behavior made by show staff members against the producer.
Schneider is also reportedly facing claims of temper issues and mistreatment of his young actors.
