The iCarly crew is back together for a revival series at Paramount+, and thanks to a new video from the cast we now have the big premiere date. In a new video, we see the cast celebrating Miranda Cosgrove's birthday and as she cuts the cake we see a hollow spot has been carved out in the center (via Deadline). We then see her read the message, and it is revealed that the premiere of the iCarly revival will hit Paramount+ on June 17th. The revival will include 13 episodes and will feature Cosgrove, Jerry Trainor, and Nathan Kress returning to their original roles, and we cannot wait to see them back in action.
In addition to the return of the original stars, the show will bring in two new actors to the cast. Laci Mosley will play Harper, Carly's roommate and best friend, while Jaidyn Triplett will play Millicent, Freddie's stepdaughter who is described as snarky and social media savvy.
The show will take place 10 years after the original show ended, which had Carly moving from Spencer's home to live with her dad, who was still serving in the Air Force. It looks like the gang is all back at Spencer's place, so we're not sure what happened afterwards or if she ended up moving back.
“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,” Cosgrove said in a press release. “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+!”
ViacoCBS CEO Bob Bakish said about the project "Paramount is an iconic and storied brand beloved by consumers all over the world, and it is synonymous with quality, integrity and world-class storytelling," Bakish previously explained. "With Paramount+, we're excited to establish one global streaming brand in the broad-pay segment that will draw on the sheer breadth and depth of the ViacomCBS portfolio to offer an extraordinary collection of content for everyone to enjoy."
The original iCarly ran from 2007 to 2012, ultimately airing six seasons totalling 97 episodes. The Nickelodeon series focused on a group of best friends in Seattle creating a webcast named after Carly, and it was essentially a YouTube show with skits, talk show-style segments, and more.
The show was a huge hit for Nickelodeon during its run, and was able to spinoff Sam & Cat, a series that featured Jennette McCurdy's Sam living with Ariana Grande's Cat, who was featured on Victorious. The show didn't run for very long, mostly due to Grande becoming a massive music star, though Cat was a fixture on Victorious throughout its entire 3 season run.
Now we don't have to wait much longer to see the crew back together, even
