A second season of the iCarly revival has been picked up by Paramount+, according to The Hollywood Reporter. A sequel to the Nickelodeon 2007-2012 hit show, the iCarly revival series debuted on the platform on June 17.
According to Brian Robbins, the Viacom CBS kids and family chief, the sequel series has performed immensely well on Paramount+, a network that was rebranded from CBS All Access in March.
“We knew we were going to do a reboot of iCarly, it just took us a while to put it together. Once we knew we had it going, we licensed just a season or two of iCarly to Netflix and it exploded with new kids discovering it for the first time, and fans who grew up on it rediscovered it,” Robbins said. “The demand for the new show was at such a fever pitch by the time [the new show] launched that it propelled iCarly to be, if not the most successful show on Paramount+, one of the most successful shows,” via The Hollywood Reporter.
Similar to its original series, iCarly follows Miranda Cosgrove’s (Drake and Josh) Carly Shay as she juggles her job as a social media influencer, her complicated love life, and her unconventional family – only this time as an adult. The series also stars Jerry Trainer (Drake and Josh) and Nathan Kress (Into the Storm), who are both reprising their roles as Spencer and Freddie, respectively. Newcomers Laci Mosley (The Wedding Year) and Jaidyn Triplett (A Kid from Southside) also star.
