iCarly, the popular Nickelodeon sitcom that basically
inspired thousands of YouTubers and vbloggers of today’s age, is now getting a
fresh revival on Paramount Plus.
The original iCarly series was premiered in September 2007
and ran for six seasons and 97 episodes before concluding in November 2012. The
series followed a young student Carly Shay, who went viral after uploading an
audition tape on the internet along with his two best friends. Following the
success, they later started a webcast while dealing with their usual problems and issues.
The show became an instant success and received well among
the audiences. It is believed to have broken all major rating records for
Nickelodeon during its original runtime.
Considering that all big media channels are desperate to create
their own streaming offerings, it’s no surprise that the revival series will be
streamed on Paramount Plus instead of Nickelodeon.
The announcement of reboot Nickelodeon show was made on December 9,
and all the original cast of iCarly is expected to reprise their roles in the
upcoming reboot series.

the cast of iCarly reboot?
Various reports suggest that Miranda Cosgrove (who played
Carly), Jerry Trainor (who played Spencer) and Nathan Kress (who played
Freddie) are all said to reprise their roles for the reboot series.
Wait…. what about Jennette McCurdy and Noah Munck, who
played Carly’s best friend Sam and Gibby respectively?
The two have their hands full with other projects and it
seems like they are not returning for the iCarly adult version series. Jennet
McCurdy came out in one interview, revealing his struggles with eating disorder
during the filming of original series. So, she may not have good memories
associated with the show as her fellow-actors had.
Munck, on the other hand, is occupied with his role in The Golbergs, which may restrict him to
sign up for a new show. Although, fans have been desperately waiting for his
character revival ever since the revival was announced, so there’s still a
possibility that the series creators might convince him over.
The original cast of the show has been pretty tight-lipped
on social media following the revival announcement. However, Miranda uploaded a
photo that seemed to be from the show’s set. While talking to a media
organization, she said, “iCarly was a huge part of my childhood and I have so
many memories from my time making the show, I feel like I grew up alongside the
viewers.” she hoped that all the original cast would return for the revival
series. “The new show is mainly being made with all the original fans in mind.
Although we hope families will enjoy it together, this version of the show will
be more mature and follow our lives now.”

2021. iCarly is going to be the first-ever original show from Paramount Plus,
the streaming platform is a rebranded version of CBS All Access, directly
competing with other streaming services such as Peacock and HBO Max.
The rebrand was announced in January, so it’s very likely
that the series will come out in the first half of this year as platform’s
first-ever offering! However, the details about its filming are still unclear,
so we have to wait till the official announcement.
the plot of the show?
The official details about the plot haven’t been announced
yet. Still, we do believe that the series will most likely be based on young
people experimenting with vblogging, TikTok and other social media tactics to
