The relaunch of “iCarly,” which premiered on June 17 on Paramount+, happens to be only a small number of months old, with 13 episodes completing its first season. After being available for streaming for roughly a month, the series was promptly renewed; Deadline confirmed the news on July 15, calling the show “one of Paramount+’s most-streamed titles.” That’s fantastic news for fans of Carly Shay (Miranda Cosgrove), one of television’s first fictional online celebrities, and her tight-knit group of friends and family who all live in Seattle’s Bushwell Plaza building.
What Does The First Season Say About The Icarly Reboot?
The first season happened to be jam-packed with returns and guest celebrities from the original Nickelodeon series, which telecasted from 2007 through 2012. It remained faithful to its light-hearted, endearing roots, even as it followed a more mature Carly in her quest to stay relevant nine years after leaving her web show. That pattern might very likely continue in the second season, now that another season has been secured. Here’s what you’ll know about “iCarly” Season 2 thus far.
Icarly Reboot Season 2 Release Date – What Is The Premier Date Of Icarly Reboot Season 2?
According to Deadline, “iCarly” happens to be set to resume production in the fall, which indicates it is now in pre-production. On August 25, an interview with Ali Schouten, the showrunner in Entertainment Weekly, indicated that the team was in the process of creating the screenplays. With that in mind, the next episodes might run roughly a year after the first season, in June 2022. But it happens to be too early to tell for sure, and no official date has been announced.
If you’re impatient, there’s some good news. “iCarly” appears to have a relatively quick turnaround time, as filming on the first season began in mid-March 2021, as confirmed by a Nickelodeon press release, and it began broadcasting only three months later. If it sticks to that plan, fans could see more of the “iCarly” relaunch as early as January 2022. That is the best-case scenario.
Who’s In The Cast Of Icarly Season 2?
There is no doubt that the iCarly revival has been a big success. The “iCarly” reboot’s main cast is anticipated to return for Season 2. Carly Shay is played by Miranda Cosgrove, her brother Spencer is played by Jerry Trainor, Carly’s male best friend forever Freddie Benson is played by Nathan Kress, Carly’s new best friend forever Harper Bettencourt is played by Laci Mosley, and Freddie’s adoptive stepdaughter, Millicent is played by Jaidyn Triplett.
Mary Scheer plays the role of Marissa Benson, Freddie’s mother, Reed Alexander plays the role of Nevel Papperman, iCarly’s former arch-rival, Tim Russ plays the role of Principal Franklin, and Danielle Morrow plays the role of stalker Nora Dershlit all had appearances in the first season. In a YouTube interview with Brazilian source Foquinha, Cosgrove stated, she happens to be trying to bring as many people back from the original series as possible, adding that she hopes Lewbert (Jeremy Rowley) and T-Bo (Boogie) would return in the upcoming season.

Schouten added (via Entertainment Weekly) that she enjoys seeing characters from the original return and that a huge part of any comeback is assessing enthusiasm and then coming up with new methods to bring those characters back into the fold. The showrunner also expressed Trainor’s desire for his never-before-seen pal Socko to arrive, as well as their want for Victoria Justice to appear. Fans would appreciate it as well!
Jennette McCurdy, who co-starred in the original “iCarly” as Carly’s best friend Sam, is unlikely to appear. McCurdy did not appear in the reboot’s first season and appears to have retired from acting.
What Is The Upcoming Plot Of The Icarly Reboot Season 2?
If you have been watching the “iCarly” reboot, you’ll understand that the season’s 13th and final episode finishes on a cliffhanger. Two males (neither Freddie, sorry, Creddie shippers) confessed their feelings for Carly just before she and her pals were rescued from their campground. So the second season must convince Carly to pick between her new beau Wes (Josh Plasse) and her old boyfriend, Beau (Conor Husting), who broke up with her in the pilot.
In addition to settling that plotline, which will be done “in a very ‘iCarly’ way,” Schouten told EW, she wants to produce an early episode confronting a serious issue: what it means to be a woman on the internet. According to Schouten, Carly was the first of her type, one of the earliest content makers, and now they’re everywhere. And women, in particular, confront a unique set of issues that Carly would encounter and that they should and will consider.
Beyond that, viewers may have to wait until Season 2 to find out what’s in store for Carly and her pals.
Will Sam Be In Icarly Season 2?
Carly says in the first episode of the iCarly relaunch that she is still best friends with Sam, but Sam has joined a biker gang. In other words, Jennette McCurdy is welcome to return if she so desires. Jennette, on the other hand, just announced her retirement from acting on the Empty Inside podcast.
Jennette McCurdy admitted that she was embarrassed by her prior roles on iCarly and Sam & Cat. The creators are extremely embarrassed by the roles they’ve played in the past. In many ways, they despise their job. They are dissatisfied with the roles they have acted in and believe they have played the cheesiest, most embarrassing roles. Sam happens to be unlikely to ever return.
