This may be hard to believe, but it’s been more than 13 years since iCarly first premiered. Yep, on September 8, 2007, Nickelodeon fans were first introduced to Carly, Sam, Freddie and the rest of the gang, and it seriously feels like just yesterday! And now, the show back with an official reboot with most of the original cast.
For those who forgot, the show starred Miranda Cosgrove, Jennette McCurdy, Nathan Kress and Jerry Trainor. It aired on the network from September 2007 to November 2012 for six seasons, and was all about followed the life of teenager Carly Shay, who started a web show with friends, Sam and Freddie, and became a viral superstar.
“iCarly was a huge part of my childhood and I have so many memories from my time making the show. I feel like I grew up alongside the viewers,” Miranda told J-14 exclusively in January 2021 about the reboot. “My biggest hope for the revival is that it brings the people who watched the original series a lot of joy. The new show is mainly being made with all the original fans in mind. Although we hope families will enjoy it together, this version of the show will be more mature and follow our lives now.”
Following her stint on the series, Miranda has definitely changed a lot over since her Nickelodeon days — and we’re not just talking about her looks. The actress has also accomplished so much in her career, and she went on to star in a ton of movies and TV shows. She also took some time off to focus on her education.
“I had a really hard time choosing my major. I changed it three times before I figured out something I really loved,” she also told J-14. “I ended up majoring in Psychology which I never expected for myself. I sorta just fell into it when I took part in some experiments as extra credit for a general psychology course. I fell in love with it.”
The brunette beauty isn’t the only one who changed over the years! Remember Nevel Papperman? Well, the actor who played him, Reed Alexander, caught up with the Dolan Twins for a since-deleted YouTube video in November 2020, and served up his most iconic line. Yes, he told the boys that they would, “rue the day.”
It turns out, these two aren’t the only ones from the Nickelodeon series to accomplish a lot since the show ended. Scroll through our gallery to see what she, and the rest of the iCarly cast, is up to these days.
