Leave it all to them, because the iCarly crew isn’t going anywhere. Variety revealed today that the hit revival series has been renewed for a third season at Paramount+, bringing the total number of iCarly seasons to an impressive number nine. The show serves as a more mature continuation of the original program, which ran for six years from 2007 to 2012 on Nickelodeon. The entire cast is expected to return for the next batch of episodes, including legacy leads Miranda Cosgrove, Jerry Trainor, and Nathan Kress.
Tanya Giles, chief programming officer of streaming for Paramount+, released the following statement regarding the renewal:
‘iCarly’s’ loyal fan base grew up with Carly, Spencer and Freddie, and have now fallen in love with Harper and Millicent, too. We’re thrilled to have Miranda, Jerry, Nathan, Laci and Jaidyn return for a third season and we know Paramount+’s growing YA audience is as well. And I, for one, must find out what happens with #Creddie!Tanya Giles
As referenced by Giles, the iCarly revival saw two major additions to the regular cast in the form of Laci Mosley and Jaidyn Triplett. The duo portray Carly’s roommate Harper and Freddie’s adopted step-daughter Millicent, respectively. The new characters were added to iCarly’s ensemble after Jennette McCurdy chose not to return as Carly and Freddie’s best friend Sam. Paramount+’s iCarly season 3 is expected to release in 2023, with Ali Schouten-Seeks serving as showrunner in place of original series creator Dan Schneider.
