Miranda Cosgrove, Jerry Trainor, and Nathan Kress have revived our favorite childhood series. The best part? It’s for the original fans! iCarly premieres Thursday, June 17 with the first three episodes on Paramount+. The remaining 10 episodes will drop weekly.
Ten years after signing off one of TV’s most iconic shows, Carly, Spencer, and Freddie are back, navigating the next chapter of their lives in a world where gig work pays the bills and every seven-year-old is a TikTok celeb. Carly, her roommate Harper, and best friend Freddie face the uncertainties of their twenties, finding work, love, and a new kind of family with the help of Carly’s brother Spencer, and in spite of Freddie’s snarky step-daughter, Millicent.
Cosgrove stars as Carly Shay, the original influencer. Finding herself suddenly single after a breakup with her longtime boyfriend and creative collaborator, Carly uses all of her passion, drive, and creativity to bring back her famous web series iCarly — only this time she’s doing it alone.
Trainor is back as Spencer Shay, a successful artist who has stayed true to his vision over the years and uses his newfound riches to create art and fund his sister’s schemes. While Spencer can seem like an overgrown man-child at times, he was the one who raised Carly and will do anything to protect her.
Kress returns as Freddie Benson, a hopeless romantic with dreams of striking it big in the tech world, and he won’t let his two divorces, or a failed startup, keep him down. Living at his mom’s home with his step-daughter, Millicent, Freddie finds himself starting over again. He is also a director on the new iCarly series.
After growing up watching the series, I had the pleasure of getting to speak with the trio about how the new iCarly is for the OG fans, revisiting the characters during adulthood, spaghetti tacos, and so much more! Watch my interview below to hear all of their answers.
