iCarly fans are flipping out about Carly cursing in the new iCarly reboot series that has premiered on Paramount+. The new iCarly is, to be fair, aimed at an older crowd - namely fans of the original series (2007-2012) - who are now anywhere from their upper teens to post-college age. In other words, the kids who grew up on iCarly are now more than just a little familiar with the adult language that's in the new revival series.
Taking that all into consideration, there's been a mixed range of reactions from fans of iCarly who are jumping into the new series. Some appreciate that the show has grown up alongside its fans - others are having a hard time adjusting.
Here's what iCarly viewers are saying about the cursing in the 2021 revival series:
"Switch It Up On A B*tch!"

Meant For Older Audiences
The ICarly reboot is aimed for older audiences which means they're cursing on the show pic.twitter.com/YhZZVdROCS— Jolt⚡ (@JAIchemist) May 14, 2021
If the makers of iCarly (2021) were betting on adult tone being appealing to the original fanbase - they were right. A lot of fans are loving it.prevnext

From Then 'Til Now
pls watching the Icarly reboot makes me feel 7 again but also it’s nice watching it as an 18 year old with all the cursing— jackie 🌈 (@sabsaugust) June 17, 2021
This is exactly the kind of viewer the makers of iCarly were trying to reach. Mission accomplished.prevnext
You Call That Cursing?
People freaking out over cursing in the new iCarly trailer, and I was like "What??! Where?!!", until I found out it was just Spencer saying "dammit".
Like bruh, I thought Carly went like "You bitchass hoe" or some shit lmaooooo— Mauricio Working On Tron: Legacy Vid | Browntable (@Browntable_Ent) June 2, 2021
This fan's reaction came when the iCarly trailer dropped, but it echoes what a lot of fans have been saying: this isn't cursing cursing.prevnext

If Sam Were Here...
It’s too bad that Jennette McCurdy quit acting because I just know that the writers would’ve had Sam cursing up and storm throughout this series… 😭😭 #iCarly— ★ 𝕊𝔼ℝ𝔾𝕀𝕆 𝕁ℝ. ★ (@morbeen4444) June 17, 2021
Sam is one major iCarly character that returned for the new series, unfortunately. Hearing her getting to be a little more foul-mouthed would've been glorious.prevnext
They're Having Fun With It

The iCarly cast is clearly having fun with the more adult tone of the show - if this video is any indication.prev
