As yet another new streaming service prepares to launch, another beloved blast-from-the-past series is being revived for its kickoff.
Paramount+, the revamped and renamed streamer currently known as CBS All Access, will be reviving Nickelodeon’s “iCarly”, which ran from 2007 until 2012.
According to a report in TVLine, “iCarly” stars Miranda Cosgrove, Jerry Trainor and Nathan Kress are all set to appear in the new version of the series, which was created by Dan Schneider (whose numerous Nickelodeon hits have included “All That”, “The Amanda Show”, “Sam & Cat” and more).
One name that wasn’t on the returning list was Jennette McCurdy, who played Sam Puckett.
McCurdy starred on the show for six seasons before it ended in November 2012. The actress then reprised the role for her own spinoff series “Sam & Cat”, alongside Ariana Grande.
Despite fans wanting to know why McCurdy’s name hadn’t been linked to the revival, she instead posted about her podcast, “Empty Inside”, on her Instagram Story.
“Also a few big thank yous to everyone who helped out with season 1 of empty inside,” the actress wrote, tagging three people. “you guys are amazing !!”
She then added, “And an extra special thank you to all the empty inside listeners!! season 2 coming soon.”
The move seems to mirror that of NBCUniversal’s Peacock, which launched with the high-profile revival of “Saved By the Bell”.
“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,” Paramount+ president and CEO Bob Bakish said in a statement about the rebranding. “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.”
