The fact that this announcement was made so early in Season 1’s run just proves how much people like the new “iCarly.” Alongside Cosgrove, Trainor, and Kress, the first season also features appearances from some other favorite characters of the original series, such as Mary Sheer as Freddie’s helicopter mom Marissa Benson, Danielle Morrow as crazed iCarly super-fan Nora Dershlit, and Reed Alexander as Carly’s nemesis Nevel Papperman. As for new characters, Laci Mosley plays Harper Raines, Carly’s roommate and close friend, and Jaidyn Triplett plays Millicent Mitchell, Freddie’s adopted stepdaughter, among others. The first season of the reboot has 13 episodes, with the finale airing on August 26, 2021 in the US. It will premiere in the Nordic countries and Latin America on July 30, 2021, as well as Australia on August 11, 2021.
While there is very little information out about “iCarly” Season 2 yet, TVLine confirmed that production will start fall 2021 in Los Angeles, California. All of the main cast from Season 1 of the reboot are expected to return for the second season, and fans have high hopes that other favorites from the original run, such as Gibby (Noah Munck), will make an appearance. Jeannette McCurdy, who played series regular Sam Puckett in the original series, stated that she didn’t return for the reboot because she was retiring from acting, but who knows, maybe she’ll change her mind and appear in future episodes as well.
