'iCarly' reboot ordered by Paramount+ with original cast members: reports
"iCarly," the Nickelodeon show that ran from 2007 to 2012 about a young teen's internet show going viral, is getting a revival from Paramount+, according to multiple reports.
Variety and Deadline reported the reboot, which is set to premiere in 2021, will feature original cast members Miranda Cosgrove, Jerry Trainor and Nathan Kress.
Trainor retweeted a message about the project from Jay Kogen, who is reportedly signed on as a producer alongside Ali Schouten.
"People were asking what I was doing. Now I can tell you. We get to make iCarly for ADULTS!" the tweet reads.
As of Thursday morning, the other original cast members have yet to comment on the reboot on social media.
USA TODAY has reached out to Paramount+ for comment.
The series, which ran for six seasons and 97 episodes, also had some famous faces guest star, including Michelle Obama, Emily Ratajkowski and Emma Stone. The series was also nominated for seven Emmy Awards.
During Cosgrove's Nickelodeon stint, which included the star role on "iCarly" and an earlier role on "Drake & Josh," she became one of the highest-paid kid stars in the industry.
In an interview with USA TODAY in 2012, she spoke to her success as she was prepping to transition from playing Carly to college.
"I didn't really think about it that much. I was so busy doing the show. I knew I'd live with my parents a long time. I moved out three weeks ago, twenty minutes from school," she said. "For sure, being able to go to college was my goal. When I first started acting, my parents thought I'd get a few commercials and we'd put it in a college fund."
She also discussed why it was time to say goodbye to the series at the time.
"I grew up making the show. I spent my whole childhood there. We knew it would be sad no matter when we stopped doing it," she said. "We would have done it forever, but we wanted to go out and not do too many episodes. It ended at a good time."
