An iCarly reboot is officially in the works, with three of the original Nickelodeon show’s stars coming back to reprise their roles. According to The Hollywood Reporter, the new iCarly reboot will air on Paramount+, the upcoming streaming service from ViacomCBS. Returning cast members include webcast extraordinaire Carly Shay herself (Miranda Cosgrove), brother Spencer Shay (Jerry Trainor), and good friend Freddie Benson (Nathan Kress). Nickelodeon Studios is also returning to serve as producer on the TV series.
The original iCarly followed Carly Shay, a normal middle school student turned famous webcast star. Its initial six-season run lasted from 2007 until 2012, right around the time YouTubers and IG Influencers was starting to take off. The popular Nickelodeon program earned five Emmy nominations for Outstanding Children’s Program.
Plot details and a premiere date for the iCarly reboot haven’t been released, but details are expected to be confirmed leading up to the early 2021 launch of Paramount +.
