The first two seasons of Nickelodeon’s hit teen comedy “iCarly” is now available on Netflix — coming ahead of a revival of the show on ViacomCBS’ Paramount Plus.
The original “iCarly” ran from 2007-12 for six seasons and a total of 97 episodes on Nick. The series follows a group of best friends creating a webcast — named after Carly Shay (Miranda Cosgrove) — while grappling with everyday problems and adventures. The show also starred Jerry Trainor (as Spencer Shay), Nathan Kress (as Fredie) and Jennette McCurdy (as Sam Puckett).
During its original run, the show broke ratings records for Nickelodeon. The cable network’s “iCarly” and “Victorious” served as the launching pad for crossover spinoff “Sam & Kat,” starring McCurdy and and Ariana Grande — predating her meteoric pop-music career.
The Paramount Plus revival of “iCarly” is set to feature Cosgrove, Trainor and Kress (but not McCurdy) reprising their roles. Jay Kogen and Ali Schouten have signed on to develop the new version of the series.
ViacomCBS is rebranding its direct-to-consumer CBS All Access streaming service as Paramount Plus, which is set to debut March 4.
