The popular Nickelodeon show iCarly can finally be streamed on Netflix. Netflix added the first two seasons of iCarly on Monday, and fans were thrilled. The show starring Miranda Cosgrove, Jennette McCurdy, Nathan Kress, and Jerry Trainor aired on Nickelodeon from 2007-2012 for six seasons. While the show was on the air, it was one of Nickelodeon’s most popular series and has had several Emmy nominations.

The television series created by Nickelodeon icon Dan Schneider follows a group of young teens who decide to start a web show, iCarly, that becomes extremely popular. Throughout its six seasons, viewers get to watch characters Carly Shay (Cosgrove), Sam Puckett (McCurdy), and Freddie Benson (Kress) grow up. They must balance their everyday teenage lives while being thrown into various situations their newfound fame gets them in.

After Netflix added the teen sitcom, many fans took to social media to express their happiness. iCarly quickly became a trending topic on Twitter, with many young adults feeling nostalgic about the show they grew up with being available to watch on Netflix. The show’s popularity from nearly ten years ago carries on and can now be introduced to a new generation of young adults.

iCarly is on Netflix following the announcement that there will be a revival of the show. The new series will be an adult version of the teen sitcom. In December 2020, CBS’s new streaming service, Paramount Plus, confirmed there would be a revival of iCarly. The latest version of the show is set to air at the end of 2021.

The new version of iCarly will take place ten years after the series finale. According to the creators, “The new series will not be Carly Shay becoming a TikTok star, but rather it will explore her journey through her twenties alongside friends and family.”

While most of the original cast will be returning for the new series, one central character will be missing. Miranda Cosgrove, Nathan Kress, and Jerry Trainor will all reprise their beloved roles. However, Jennette McCurdy will not be returning as Sam Puckett. McCurdy has not made any statements regarding the absence of her character. Still, she has previously mentioned being a child actor has caused her psychological trauma, and she is stepping away from acting.

iCarly has been added to Netflix a month before CBS releases their new streaming service, Paramount Plus. This new streaming service is a rebranding and expansion of the current streaming service, CBS All Access. Paramount Plus will be available on March 4 and includes everything currently on CBS All Access and more.

During Super Bowl LV, which aired on CBS, many commercials were promoting Paramount Plus. According to the commercials, there will be many shows and movies available to stream. In the commercials, viewers saw SpongeBob SquarePants, which indicates CBS will add Nickelodeon shows and movies to the streaming service. Viewers of the commercials also noticed Nicole Polizzi, also known as Snooki, from Jersey Shore, which indicates MTV is another network signed on to be a part of Paramount Plus.

Pricing of the new streaming service has not been released, but many speculate the price will be similar to the pricing of the current streaming service, CBS All Access. The current CBS All Access pricing is $5.99 per month with limited commercials or $9.99 per month with no commercials. Paramount Plus is where iCarly fans will watch the series’ revival once released later this year.
