Holy shit, a revival of the iCarly on Nickelodeon is coming to Paramount Plus (or 10 All Access in Australia), and it looks like the OG cast are set to return including: Miranda Cosgrove, Jerry Trainor and Nathan Kress. But there’s no word on Jennette McCurdy, yet.
The former-Nickelodeon hit will only be available to stream, as more media companies look to expand their own streaming platforms.
This news is particularly important to me, because I could only watch iCarly on my friends TVs as I never had Foxtel growing up. The good news about it being available to stream, is that it will hopefully be more accessible to your average family. That is, of course, if you’re not already subscribed to about 100 streaming platforms already, which most people are.
Of course, no one is ever happy with a reboot unless literally everyone from the OG show returns.

iCarly ran from 2007-2012 and was so big, it broke ratings records for Nickelodeon. The show also featured a crazy amount of big-name stars throughout its time like Austin Butler, Emily Ratajkowski (who played Gibby’s *checks notes* GIRLFRIEND), Emma Stone, Michelle Obama, One Direction, Jack Black, Jimmy Fallon, Tina Fey, Jim Parsons and of course, Jane Lynch.
iCarly pre-dated the YouTubers of today, and was one of the first-shows where the premise was centred around the internet. Basically, the show follows the story of Carly Shay, who along with her friends creates a popular webshow called ‘iCarly’. Knowing what the world is now, the show was way ahead of its time.

In the final episode of the long-running show Carly moves to Italy to live with her Dad. Carly and Freddie share a goodbye kiss, which then led into the spinoff series Sam & Cat (starring Jennette McCurdy and Ariana Grande).
However, despite the popularity of the spin-off series, it got cancelled allegedly due to ongoing drama between the two Nickelodeon stars. Yikes.
So I’m gonna take a wild guess and say Ariana won’t be making an appearance in the new reboot.
