Counting down to new episodes! iCarly is officially headed back to Paramount+ for a new season.
The Nickelodeon show originally aired from 2007 to 2012, and in June 2021, the series returned with Miranda Cosgrove, Nathan Kress and Jerry Trainor reprising their fan-favorite roles (Jennette McCurdy did not return as Sam Puckett) for a reimagined and more mature version of iCarly. While the series is still family-friendly, it’s definitely something that all generations can enjoy, and according to Nathan, they have.
When celebrating the end of season 1 via Instagram, the actor shared a heartfelt message dedicated to his costars and the show’s crew. The father of two also thanked fans for their unwavering support as new episodes premiered. “I am so grateful for everything we’ve done on this show in the past 3 months,” Nathan wrote, thanking the cast and writers for lending their “immense talents and voices to create a whole new iCarly.”
The Nickelodeon alum noted that fans have “come out IN FORCE to tell us that you love [the show] so far,” and said that he looks forward to the future. Now that there’s more in the works, there’s definitely lots to come from the original and new stars as their stories continue. In fact, it was revealed in December 2021 that Josh Peck would guest star on the series. Previously, he and Miranda played siblings on Drake & Josh from 2004 to 2007, so this is a major reunion.
iCarly‘s reboot brought major nostalgia for viewers, and the stars. Prior to the show’s first season premiere, Miranda explained how returning to the series actually paralleled her own life.
“Carly’s character goes to college after she is in Italy with her dad for a few years, she goes to college and then she ends up coming back to the show. iCarly was like me in real life,” she told People in June 2021. “And she starts up the show for the first time in 10 years. So when we were doing the scene, it was kind of weird for me just because that’s exactly what I’m doing. I’m starting the show again for the first time in 10 years. So, there are a lot of moments like that within the show where it really mirrors my real life.”
