Superfans rejoice. The rumours are true. Your favourite teenage sitcom stars are making a comeback in the highly anticipated new series iCarly, streaming exclusively in Australia on Paramount+ next month.
The new series, which is based on Nickeolodeon’s original iCarly hit sitcom, picks up nearly 10 years later and finds Carly Shay (Miranda Cosgrove), the original influencer, and her friends navigating work, love and their family in their twenties.
The iCarly revival will see the return of much-loved iconic series stars, Miranda Cosgrove (Carly), Jerry Trainor (Spencer) and Nathan Kress (Freddie). The series also welcomes two new cast; Laci Mosley (Florida Girls) as Harper, Carly’s roommate and best friend; and Jaidyn Triplett (The Affair, See) as Millicent, Freddie’s snarky and social media-savvy stepdaughter.
Miranda Cosgrove, who also serves as an executive producer for the new series, said: “Being on the iCarly set has always felt like a second home to me and it’s so awesome to be back with my pals Jerry and Nathan. We served up spaghetti tacos over 10 years ago, and I can’t wait to show you what we’re cooking up next with Nickelodeon for Paramount+!”
Nickelodeon’s original iCarly series, which became a pop-culture staple in the 2000s, followed a group of best friends as they created a webcast for and about kids their age while grappling with everyday problems and adventures.
The new iCarly series is produced by Nickelodeon Studios and Awesomeness.
Priced at $8.99 per month, Paramount+ subscribers can enjoy the new 13-part iCarly series when it drops in full on Paramount+ on Wednesday, 11 August
And don’t forget, 10 Shake will air original iCarly episodes from 3 July, and catch up on 10 Play On Demand.
