iCarly

Paramount+, the streaming service from ViacomCBS, announced that its new hit series, iCarly has been renewed for a second season in all markets the service is available, including the U.S., Australia, Canada, Latin America and the Nordics. Produced by Nickelodeon Studios, the new iCarly series premiered in June on Paramount+ and quickly became one of the streaming service’s top acquisition drivers, ranking among Paramount+'s most-streamed titles since the series' debut. Production on the second season will begin in Los Angeles this fall. iCarly on Paramount+ picks up nearly 10 years after the beloved original Nickelodeon show ended, finding Carly Shay, the original influencer, and her friends navigating work, love and family now as adults. The series stars Miranda Cosgrove as Carly, Jerry Trainor as Spencer, Nathan Kress as Freddie, Laci Mosley as Harper and Jaidyn Triplett as Millicent. New episodes of the 13-episode first season drop on Thursdays exclusively for Paramount+ subscribers.

The new iCarly series is executive produced by Ali Schouten and Miranda Cosgrove, with Schouten also serving as showrunner. Jerry Trainor and Alissa Vradenburg serve as producers. iCarly was created by Dan Schneider. The original series ran from 2007-2012 on Nickelodeon.
