It’s a good year for people who used to watch television in the late 2000s. It was announced that there will be a True Blood reboot, and now we have Paramount+ ordering a revival of iCarly.
You read that right! Paramount+, currently known as CBS All Access has ordered to bring back the series along with the original series stars, Miranda Cosgrove, Nathan Kress, and Jerry Trainor. The original series used to air on Nickelodeon back from 2007 to 2012. It revolved around a teenager named Carly.
The character used to make web series with her friends Freddie and Sam, played by Jenette McCurdy. The actor is not present in the main cast that is returning and there is no sign of Gibby, played by Noah Munck. Jerry played Carly’s elder brother who used to invent anything.
The revival of iCarly is being developed by Jay Kogen and Ali Schouten. iCarly had said goodbye in 2012; as the show saw the character going off to Italy with her dad. Meanwhile, the character, Sam went on to star in Sam & Cat. The series was short-lived as it brought together Sam from iCarly and Cat from Victorious. It only lasted for 35 episodes between 2013 and 2014.
The network which is originally named CBS All Access will be rebranding in 2021 as the name would change into Paramount Plus. The content included in the network would be from MTV, BET, and Nickelodeon. It would be competing against, HBO Max, Netflix, Peacock, Disney+, and Hulu.
