Played by Noah Munck, the fan-favorite character served as an extra layer of comedy throughout the already hilarious series while it aired on Nickelodeon from September 2007 to November 2012. While appearances from Miranda Cosgrove, Nathan Kress and Jerry Trainor have already been confirmed, it’s unclear if Noah will reprise the role for the upcoming Paramount+ series. In fact, the stars don’t even know.
While chatting with Entertainment Tonight in June 2021, Nathan and Jerry were asked whether or not fans would find out what happened to Gibby during the upcoming episodes. “That’s a great question … I don’t know,” Nathan admitted. Jerry added, “I don’t know either. I don’t know the answer to that yet!”
Nathan continued, “I think what’s great is that’s the most Gibby thing right now. Is just that question, ‘What’s Gibby up to?'”
While some old faces will definitely be making an appearance in the series, a few new cast members have also been announced along with details on where fans can find all the characters nearly 10 years after the show ended. Both Laci Mosley and Jaidyn Triplett will be introduced to the iCarly universe, while it was confirmed that viewers will see Freddie as a stepdad. As for what else is in store, Miranda teased to J-14 exclusively in January 2021 that she hopes the show “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,” she added. “Although we hope families will enjoy it together, this version of the show will be more mature and follow our lives now.”
With a keeping the original viewers in mind, fans are holding out hope for the surprise appearance of Gibby. Although Noah has yet to comment on the actual reboot, he did touch on possibly bringing back the role while appearing on the “OYC” podcast in July 2017. At the time, the actor said he had “no clue” whether or not there was a reboot in the works, noting that he “appreciated” the series, but has a “weird relationship” with his past role in the show.
“Maybe one day I’ll have a better relationship with it, and who knows, I’ll come back,” he said at the time.
Following his iCarly role, Noah kept his personal life offline and doesn’t have much of a social media presence. That being said, he continued to act and even makes music. Scroll through our gallery to see what the actor’s up to now.
