iCarly is officially making a comeback! That's because as TVLine reported on Wednesday, the Nickelodeon sitcom will be returning to television in the near future, and it's been confirmed that many of the show's original cast members will star in the reboot!
iCarly stars to reprise their roles: here's who's returning!
iCarly originally premiered on Nickelodeon in 2007, and followed the adventures of "Carly" (Miranda Cosgrove), a young girl who starts her own web show with the help of her friends "Freddie" (Nathan Kress) and "Sam" (Jennette McCurdy). While Cosgrove, Kress, and Trainor— who plays "Carly's" brother "Spencer"— have all been confirmed to be on board for the new series, there's no word yet on if McCurdy will be joining them.
As TVLine shares, the iCarly reboot will be penned by Jay Kogen and Ali Schouten, both of whom have several notable writing credits to their names. Kogen has worked on projects like School of Rock and The Simpsons, while Schouten's been involved with Diary of a Future President and Merry Happy Whatever.
iCarly reboot to be available on rebranded CBS All Access
iCarly fans will be excited to learn that the revival is headed to Paramount+ sometime in the near future! If that name doesn't sound familiar, it's because streaming service CBS All Access will be rebranding to Paramount+ in 2021. Since iCarly's original home at Nickelodeon is part of the Paramount brand, this transition makes perfect sense for the show!
While iCarly is the latest popular show to get the reboot treatment, 2020 also saw a different streaming platform bring back another beloved sitcom! That's because in November, the Saved by the Bell reboot premiered on NBC's Peacock. There's also a reimagining of Doogie Howser, M.D. currently in the works at Disney+!
