The Paramount+ revival reunites fans with original stars Miranda Cosgrove, Nathan Kress, and Jerry Trainor and will follow the trio as they navigate the regular ups and downs of adult life. As long as we get to see Gibby dance with his shirt off, we’re on board.

Since Paramount+’s iCarly reboot was first announced in December, new details (and pics!) of the series have been released, much to fans’ delight. However, fans still have plenty of questions about the new iCarly revival, and that’s where we come in. What is the iCarly reboot release date? Is there an iCarly reboot trailer for the new series? Here’s everything you need to know!

Is iCarly coming back?

Yes! In December, ViacomCBS announced that the Nickelodeon series iCarly will be revived on Paramount+, the company’s rebranded streaming service. Even better news: it looks like the cast is already on set…

iCarly Reboot: Release Date

After over 8 years of hibernation, ‘iCarly’ is all set to return on the small screen as nascent streaming platform Paramount+ (previously known as CBS All Access) announced a revival of the fan-favorite TV show in December 2020. The filming on the reboot has reportedly begun in late January 2021 as the main cast assembled on the sets.

While Jay Kogen of ‘The Simpsons’ fame, alongside Ali Schouten, was set to bring the show back to life, the former stepped out of the production in February 2021, reportedly due to “creative differences” with the lead actress Miranda Cosgrove. It is doubtful whether the show will bring a new co-showrunner on board. While Paramount+ is yet to disclose an official release date, if the filming wraps up soon, we can expect ‘iCarly’ reboot season 1 to release sometime in mid-2021 or later.

iCarly Reboot Plot: What can it be About?

In the final episode of season 6 of the original series, ‘iGoodbye’, Carly and Spencer meet their father for the first time in the show. The episode begins with the news of Colonel Shay’s arrival, who is supposed to escort his daughter Carly to the Father-Daughter Air Force Dance. He arrives late, and following the event, discloses that he has to leave for his base in Italy. He proposes to take Carly along with him, and after some persuasion by Spencer and her friends, she decides to go. They record the last webcast with her father and the team, and Carly leaves for Italy, according to The Cinema Holic.

The reboot will perhaps begin with the return of Carly. The teenagers are now grownups, and while we may expect to see random goofy misadventures as we used to on the original show, creating the same amateur ambiance will prove to be difficult for the creators. With Dan Schneider no more connected to the show, the new directors may take the liberty to give the show a new makeover altogether.

Fans will be elated to know that lead actors Miranda Cosgrove (Carly Shay), Jerry Trainor (Spencer Shay), and Nathan Kress (Freddie Benson) are reunited to take up their original roles. However, we shall miss Jennette McCurdy, who fans know as the goofy and lazy sidekick Sam Puckett, as she quit her acting career stating in the media that she was allegedly ashamed and embarrassed about her role as Sam and that she felt unfulfilled by the character that she was given to portray. There can also be some surprise cameos from the old cast members along with some fresh characters.

iCarly Reboot: Teaser

While a legit iCarly reboot trailer has not yet been released, Cosgrove, Kress, and Trainor joined forces to release a teaser for the upcoming reboot that was released during a Paramount+ investor call last week, said Decider.

Why is Jennette McCurdy not in the new iCarly?

It’s impossible to discuss the iCarly revival series without mentioning Jennette McCurdy, who played Carly’s best friend Sam Puckett on the iconic kids’ sitcom. McCurdy will not be appearing in the Paramount+ reboot, as she has retired from acting and is transitioning into writing and directing.

“My experience with acting is, I’m so ashamed of the parts I’ve done in the past,” McCurdy said recently on her podcast, Empty Inside. “I resent my career in a lot of ways. I feel so unfulfilled by the roles that I played and felt like it was the most cheesy, embarrassing. I did the shows that I was on from like 13 to 21, and by 15, I was already embarrassed. My friends at 15, they’re not like, ‘Oh, cool, you’re on this Nickelodeon show.’ It was embarrassing. And I imagine there’s a very different experience to be had with acting if you’re proud of your roles, and if you feel fulfilled by them.”

Heck yeah, you can. As you wait for the iCarly revival to be released, be sure to check out the first five seasons of the sitcom on CBS All Access (which will become Paramount+ tomorrow, March 4). Fans can also watch iCarly Seasons 1 and 2 on Netflix.
