Carly and her friends are sticking around. The new version of the iCarly TV series has been renewed for a second season on the Paramount+ streaming service. Production on the new episodes will begin this fall.
A comedy series, the new incarnation of iCarly is a continuation of the original series (2007-12) that was created by Dan Schneider. It follows a group of best friends as they create a webcast for and about kids while grappling with everyday problems and adventures. The current comedy stars Miranda Cosgrove, Jerry Trainor, Nathan Kress, Laci Mosley, and Jaidyn Triplett. Picking up nearly 10 years later, it follows original influencer Carly Shay (Cosgrove), her brother Spencer (Trainor), and friend Freddie Benson (Kress) as they navigate work, love, and family relationships in their twenties. New characters include Harper (Mosley), Carly’s roommate and best friend, and Millicent (Triplett), Freddie’s snarky and social media-savvy stepdaughter.
