ViacomCBS’ streaming platform Paramount+ is reviving iCarly for a grown-up reboot. According to Variety, the original cast Miranda Cosgrove, Jerry Trainor, and Nathan Kress, will return for the new show. There’s no word on if any other cast members will return for the brand new series. We still don’t know what direction will the show be in, but at least we can see our favorite stars on a show we used to love so much. The new reboot won’t be in the hands of original creator Dan Schneider. Writers Jay Kogen is known for School of Rock, The Simpsons, Frasier, and Ali Schouten, known for Diary of a Future President, Champions, and Merry Happy Whatever will develop the show.
The original iCarly first premiered in 2007 and ended in 2017 with six seasons and 97 episodes. The show was based on three best friends, Carly( Miranda Cosgrove), Freddie (Nathan Kress), and Sam (Jennette McCurdy), creating a webcast while dealing with everyday problems and adventures. iCarly became a major pop-culture show that broke viewership records. iCarly was a show for audiences of all ages. Since it was a big hit on Nickelodeon, it led to a spinoff Sam & Cat with McCurdy and Ariana Grande From Victorious.
Fans showed their excitement on Twitter with GIFs from the show and what they want to see in the reboot. Some fans are even calling it a cultural reset. One fan @branden_townes tweeted, “this icarly reboot has got me losing my freaking mind. I can’t wait; I literally have been rewatching the series”. iCarly was a great show for everyone; getting a reboot is exciting because we can finally see one of our favorite childhood shows in action again.
