Streaming service Paramount+ on Thursday, July 15, announced the renewal of its hit reboot series iCarly for a second season midway through the premiere of season one.
Miranda Cosgrove (Carly), Jerry Trainor (Spencer), and Nathan Kress (Freddie) came back to reprise their roles for the reboot, which was announced in December 2020. New additions to the cast are Laci Mosley (Harper) and Jaidyn Triplett (Millicent).
Jennette McCurdy, who played Sam in the original series, stated on her Empty Inside podcast that she wouldn’t be returning for the revival due to feeling “unfulfilled by the roles” she had played.
Production for season two – which will air in the US, Canada, Latin America, and the Nordics – is expected to begin in Los Angeles this year, with a release date yet to be confirmed.
Season 1 of the iCarly reboot has a total of 13 episodes. The series premiered on June 17 on Paramount+.
The original hit series ran from 2007 to 2012 with six seasons. iCarly centered around best friend trio Carly, Sam, and Freddie, who managed a famous, wacky web show that specializes in hilarious and sometimes odd content for their online viewers. – with reports from Angelica Burlaza/Rappler.com
