‘iCarly’ to be rebooted with original cast members

Words: Katie Gartland

Get your Pearbooks out because ‘iCarly’ is coming back.

Paramount+ have issued a renewal of the Nickelodeon classic ‘iCarly’. The reboot will feature the original cast from the comedy, including Miranda Cosgrove, Jerry Trainor and Nathan Kress.

‘iCarly’ was aired on Nickelodeon from 2007-2012 for six seasons and 97 episodes. ‘iCarly’ was part of Nickelodeon’s golden era for those who are now in their early twenties. It was produced by Dan Shneider, who was also the creator of other Nickelodeon classics like ‘Drake and Josh’, ‘Zoey 101’ and ‘Victorious’.

Jay Kogan (writer of ‘The Simpsons’, ‘Frasier’ and ‘School of Rock’) and Ali Schouten (writer of ‘Diary of a Future President’, ‘Champions’, ‘Merry Happy Whatever’) have teamed up to develop the ‘iCarly’ reboot.

‘iCarly’ told the story of three friends, Carly, Sam and Freddie. The trio lived in Seattle and created a webcast with Carly’s older brother Spencer. It followed them through everyday trials and tribulations of teenage life.

The course of the five year series also saw the ‘iCarly’ gang head to Asia for an awards show in a movie called ‘iGo To Japan’. ‘iCarly’ included many guest stars throughout the show including Emma Stone, Austin Butler, One Direction, Jack Black and Michelle Obama.

CBS All Access streaming service is set to rebrand as Paramount+ in early 2021. The new service will be home to the CBS archive along with other cable outlets including MTV, Comedy Central, BET, Paramount Network and Nickelodeon.

Speaking about their rebranding, president and CEO of Paramount, Bob Bakish said “Paramount is an iconic and storied brand beloved by consumers all over the world, and it is synonymous with quality, integrity and world-class storytelling.

“With Paramount+, we’re excited to establish one global streaming brand in the broad-pay segment that will draw on the sheer breadth and depth of the ViacomCBS portfolio to offer an extraordinary collection of content for everyone to enjoy.”
