Since the revival of the popular Nickelodeon series iCarly made its Paramount+ debut in 2021, fans (new and old) of the beloved show have been able to reunite with Carly, Freddie, and Spencer, who are now experiencing situations that are a bit more adult. Well, the show is proving to be a success, and it’s now been confirmed that the trio and their friends (and hopefully Season 2 guest star Josh Peck) will be back in a third season!
Paramount+ (opens in new tab) announced that it has renewed iCarly for Season 3, following its successful second outing, which finished airing earlier this summer. As of now, there's no word as to how many episodes it will include but, with Season 1 having had 13 episodes and the second having 10, it’s likely that this new stretch will run somewhere around there. Production is set to begin later this year, with the new episodes premiering sometime in 2023. The streamer also dropped a photo showing Miranda Cosgrove celebrating the news:
Season 2 included the introduction of Carly’s wacky manager, Paul, portrayed by the lead actress' former Drake & Josh co-star, Josh Peck. Ahead of Peck’s guest appearance, the star opened up about working with her former on-screen brother again, noting that “he’s just been such a big part” of her life since she was a kid and that working with him again was “so much fun.”
The series has also featured a number of returning OG iCarly characters like Lewbert the doorman, Ryan Ochoa’s Chuck Chambers, Gibby’s little brother Guppy, and Mrs. Benson. So while many have surely been missing original cast member Jennette McCurdy, fans sure haven't been left wanting when it comes to classic characters.
The announcement for the renewal comes nearly two months after the Season 2 finale. The episode ended with a cliffhanger involving Carly and Freddie, who seem to have feelings for one another. The “Creddie” development was major for longtime fans of the series, as Freddie had long pursued his best friend and colleague. I'm personally anxious to see if the two actually end up getting together.
iCarly originally aired on Nickelodeon from 2007-2012 and quickly became a hit with viewers. While some may have been leery of a revival, the new show has managed to stay true to the spirit of the original. Just recently, Cosgrove admitted that she said yes to a revival because she liked the idea of seeing the characters in adult settings. She also thought that fans of the series would appreciate that, given that they'd grown up with Carly Shay and co.
With another season of iCarly on the way, fans can likely expect more hijinks, character returns and hopefully, a conclusion to the long-lasting “Creddie” situation -- and more of Josh Peck's Paul! While you wait for the new episodes, you can check out all seasons of the original show and the first two of the revival, as all are available to stream using a Paramount+ subscription!
