On Thursday, the first three episodes of Paramount+’s iCarly reboot debuted, reuniting viewers with old pals while also introducing numerous new characters.
Former Nickelodeon executive Paula Kaplan approached Cosgrove with an idea for a new iCarly series centred on Carly and Spencer operating a Hype House-style content house with a new generation of influencers inspired by the iCarly web show. The show’s audience was intended to be directed towards children, following in the footsteps of earlier revivals and spin-offs such as Disney Channel’s Raven’s Home and Girl Meets World. “I don’t believe any of us would have been interested in that [concept],” she continues. “What drew me back to making iCarly was the opportunity to put the characters in settings that we couldn’t depict previously.”
Let’s Take You back to iCarly
Carly and Millicent are under the impression that Freddie and his ex-wife Gwen still have affections for one other, and they intend to reunite them during Millicent’s Romeo and Juliet school performance. Spencer and Harper, on the other hand, are competing for a reward. Spencer builds a set out of toast, while Harper dresses the figures in Shakespearean garb.
Griffin (“iDate a Bad Boy”) reconnects with Carly and introduces her to a sales opportunity that turns out to be a multilevel marketing scheme. Freddie quits his job to become a full-time salesperson when Carly gets him involved. Meanwhile, Harper is dissatisfied with her position at Skybucks and chooses to leave to pursue a career in fashion.
Carly had planned a ladies’ vacation with her friends Harper and Brooke, but they have to cancel at the last minute, forcing her to go with Freddie. The two find themselves in unpleasant positions at the hotel’s honeymoon room, particularly once Brooke arrives and offers a threesome. Meanwhile, Spencer develops feelings for Harper’s cousin Maeve, who was abducted and held at sea for four years.
Carly tries to fix her car herself rather to pay for pricey auto repairs, with terrible effects. Meanwhile, Maeve informs Spencer that she staged her own kidnapping, and the two try to find out how to tell Harper, while Harper takes on the role of personal stylist for an eccentric pop artist dubbed Double Dutch.
Freddie creates an app to assist Carly in preparing supper for her new boyfriend Wes and his grandmother, who is hostile to Carly. Meanwhile, Harper is dealing with employment issues at Double Dutch, and Spencer and Maeve have decided to call it quits.

Is There the Chance for iCarly 2?
Carly is navigating life as an adult in the new series, which begins up 10 years after the first programme ended. In the opening episode, her boyfriend rejects her, starting her on a new road. “For you, parties are a never-ending smorgasbord of people who want to sleep with you,” Carly says to her roommate, establishing the show’s more mature tone early on. Cute males, sexy chicks, and extremely beautiful non-binary attorneys with your name tattooed on their thighs.” (Harper, played by Laci Mosley, is Carly’s bisexual roommate).
Shauna Phelan and Zack Olin, the co-heads of live action for Nickelodeon & Awesomeness, are in charge of “iCarly” production for Nickelodeon Studios. Nickelodeon’s executive in charge of production for the series is Brian Banks.
Season 2 will be broadcast in all of the service’s markets, including the United States, Australia, Canada, Latin America, and the Nordics. Season 1, which is already streaming in the United States and Canada, will premiere on July 30 in the Nordics and Latin America, and on August 11 in Australia. Exclusively for Paramount+ subscribers, new episodes of the 13-episode inaugural season release on Thursdays.
Who is Not Returning ?
Jennette McCurdy, who portrayed Sam on Nickelodeon’s “iCarly” for the entire original run, declined to reprise her role for the revival. She made the decision to stop performing and pursue other interests. To be fair, the original cast – Cosgrove, Jerry Trainor, and Nathan Kress — all tried their hardest to persuade McCurdy to return.
Naturally, Sam’s loss is felt keenly in the new “iCarly.” In the first episode, Carly is sad and adrift, wanting to launch a new channel for her loyal fans. She tries to make it work with different co-hosts, but she really misses Sam in the end. But where precisely is Sam?
“She’s off chasing her happiness with that motorcycle gang,” Carly says to Freddie during a lovely moment (Kress). The gang’s name appears to be The Obliterators, and Sam is prospering with them. Though Freddie is concerned about her, Carly makes an excellent point: “It’s Sam. “I hope they’re all right.”
