The Nickelodeon comedy's original stars Cosgrove, Jerry Trainor and Nathan Kress are set to return in a revival of their 2007-2012 Nickelodeon series about a group of friends who create a webcast while grappling with everyday problems and adventures. School of Rock vet Jay Kogen is developing the reboot with Merry Happy Whatever's Ali Schouten. iCarly creator Dan Schneider isn't involved.

I hope it'll be more mature and I hope Sam doesn't come back.

First Details on Paramount's 'iCarly' Revival (EXCLUSIVE)

Quote:
We have learned the first details on how Paramount+ will approach the story of their upcoming iCarly revival.

Per our sources, the series will be set 10 years after the events of the original Nickelodeon hit in the modern TikTok era of social engagement. However, the focus will not be on Carly becoming a TikTok star, but rather it will explore her journey through her twenties alongside friends and family.

As we already know, Miranda Cosgrove, Jerry Trainor, and Nathan Kress will all reprise their respective roles as Carly, Spencer, and Freddie. Jennette McCurdy is not expected to return as Sam, makimg way for two new characters set to be introduced to the revival: Carly’s new best friend and Freddie’s step-daughter.

Carly’s new best friend/roommate will be part of the LGBTQ+ community as a pansexual character who dreams of becoming a fashion stylist after her wealthy family lost all of their money. The character will also serve to push Carly out of her comfort zone as they confront day to day obstacles.

Freddie’s step-daughter is reported to be social media-obsessed, who sees the older Carly as washed up as well as competition to her small YouTube channel.

Per how sources have described this revival to us, it seems that rather than focusing on Carly’s web series (which will more than likely still be part of the show to some degree), it will aim to appease the generation that grew up with these characters by having them explore modern problems that young adults face. That being said, from how roles such as Freddie’s teenage step-daughter are being set up, the series looks to be making itself open to a fresh, younger audience as well. Unlike recent revivals of iconic childhood programs like That’s So Raven, this series may aim to appeal to all audiences.

What also stands out is the inclusion of a prominent LGBTQ+ character. This is especially important in a genre of television where such representation has been very scarce until recent years. The notable example being Cyrus Goodman portrayed by Joshua Rush in Andi Mack, who became the Disney Channel’s first leading gay character in 2019.

In essence, this is what Hillary Duff and writer/producer Terri Minsky aimed to do for the Disney+ Lizzie McGuire reboot, television that approaches the struggles of adulthood while gearing towards the young-adults that grew up with the original program. First announced in 2019, the new Lizzie McGuire would go on to film two episodes before Minsky parted ways due to creative differences. It was later revealed that these differences stemmed form the show not being “family-friendly” enough for Disney+ with themes such as sex. Duff herself eventually plead Disney to move the series to Hulu, a platform that could host mature content for younger viewers with less restrictions. Love, Victor previously moved from Disney+ to Hulu for these similar reasons. Duff announced that no creative agreements could be made and that the project was officially cancelled last December.

It appears that this new iteration of iCarly will strive to get this concept right while opening the door for new fans to be introduced. With all the public commotion that came with Disney’s mishandling of their own legacy teen show, Paramount already has an example of what not to do. Paramount+ (formerly named CBS All Access) will also be free from the strict “family-friendly” rules felt on Disney+. Something that is sure to work in favor of both iCarly and its fans.

Filming is set to begin in March in Los Angeles with Jay Kogen and Ali Schouten serving as writers and producers on the series. Miranda Cosgrove will, of course, also produce.

The yet to be titled iCarly revival will be exclusive to Paramount+, which is making a big splash with new content starting March 4 with the highly anticipated U.S premiere of The SpongeBob Movie: Sponge on the Run.

OK just stop with the sitcom reboots and revivals already. It's a bad idea!

Showrunner Jay Kogen Exits iCarly Revival After Feuding with Miranda Cosgrove

Quote:
EXCLUSIVE: One of the most anticipated new series on Paramount+, iCarly, is undergoing a behind-the-scenes leadership change.

Jay Kogen has stepped down as executive producer and co-showrunner on the new iteration of the 2007 Nickelodeon comedy. Fellow executive producer/co-showrunner Ali Schouten remains on board; it is unclear whether the series will bring in a new co-showrunner.

According to sources, comedy veteran Kogen and iCarly star Miranda Cosgrove did not click creatively, and those creative differences ultimately led to his departure.

iCarly is described by Paramount+ as a new chapter for the most successful kids’ sitcom of all time, where original cast members Miranda Cosgrove, Nathan Kress and Jerry Trainor join new friends for a look at these characters’ present-day lives, adventures and comedic mishaps.

The original iCarly series, produced by Nickelodeon, ran from 2007-2012. Starring Cosgrove, Trainor, Kress and Jennette McCurdy, it followed a group of best friends creating a webcast while grappling with everyday problems and adventures. During its original run, iCarly became a pop-culture staple and regularly broke viewership records among audiences of all ages. Nickelodeon also is producing the revival for ViacomCBS’ streaming services Paramount+, which officially launches March 4.

Kogen previously worked with Nickelodeon on the comedy series School of Rock and created/executive produced the Nick at Nite series Wendell and Vinnie. He recently served as a consulting producer on another YA sitcom revival for a new streaming platform, Peacock’s Punky Brewster. His credits also include The Simpsons and Frasier.

267. ENTERTAINMENT LAWYER 02/26 **5**

The showrunner fired from a reboot of a former children's channel was fired because he refused to play the "ship" game. There are two possible "ship" outcomes and he thinks the fans who focus on that shouldn't be. The powers above want the focus to be on that. Maybe, instead they should focus on why they are rebooting the show in the first place and how it screwed so many people over as tweens/teens and they can't function correctly as adults.

Jennette McCurdy dashes hopes of an iCarly revival return, confirming she quit acting and is "embarrassed" by her past roles

"My experience with acting is, I'm so ashamed of the parts I've done in the past," the 28-year-old McCurdy said on her podcast Empty Inside. "I resent my career in a lot of ways. I feel so unfulfilled by the roles that I played and felt like it was the most cheesy, embarrassing. I did the shows that I was on from like 13 to 21, and by 15, I was already embarrassed. My friends at 15, they're not like, 'Oh, cool, you're on this Nickelodeon show.' It was embarrassing. And I imagine there's a very different experience to be had with acting if you're proud of your roles, and if you feel fulfilled by them."

Miranda Cosgrove: iCarly reboot will address the absence of Jennette McCurdy's Sam Puckett

"Definitely, we touch a lot on the whole relationship with Sam and where Sam's at in the pilot episode," she told EW. "And then we mention her a little bit throughout the season, so we'll definitely explain that on the show." McCurdy isn't part of the Paramount+ reboot after quitting acting.

iCarly reboot doesn't change much from the original series, except for featuring an adult edge and more modern jokes

"The characters still act like 'ding-dongs,'" says Jordan Moreau, "but there are good laughs and clever moments throughout. For fans who grew up with (Miranda) Cosgrove and iCarly, the revival feels like catching up with a childhood friend and sharing in the challenges of adulthood, without shedding any of the humor or personality from when you first met." ALSO: Miranda Cosgrove wears the same iCarly dress from the Nickelodeon finale on the reboot.
