It seems that things are finally looking up as 2020 comes to a close. On a social media post last night, the official iCarly page announced that Paramount+ has ordered a reboot of the show!
Paramount+ is the rebrand of CBS All Access and ahead of the iCarly reboot, it will be hosting the show’s previous episodes in its growing library. It is set to compete against other streaming services such as Netflix and Disney+.
What’s more, Miranda Cosgrove herself is set to reprise her role as Carly along with Jerry Trainor and Nathan Kress as brother Spencer and Freddy respectively. Jenette McCurdy who played Carly’s best friend Sam is not going to be involved as with the original creator Dan Schneider.
The show first aired on Nickelodeon in 2007 and ran for 5 successful seasons. Revolving around Carly herself, it took us for a funny and wholesome journey with Sam and Freddy as they gained fame with their online webcast. With such lovable characters and hilarious incidents, it was a much-loved show with children, teens and parents alike.

Fans were ecstatic about this announcement with many of them showing their love in the comments of the Facebook post. Despite this, many were disappointed that Sam Pucket will not be returning and even threatened to boycott the new series.
Sam or no Sam, we’re just glad that the show is finally back, we can’t wait for 2021!
