The hit television show “iCarly,” which previously released on Nickelodeon from 2007 to 2012, was recently up on Netflix on Feb. 8. The show broke various rating records and has remained in the fourth top watched show on Netflix for over two weeks.  

The show rose to the Top 10 streamed list, hitting No. 3 overall on both the main Top 10 list and the Top 10 TV series of the day by February 9, only one day after it was released.  

The series focuses on best friends Carly (Miranda Cosgrove) and Sam (Jennette McCurdy) who have a webcast based in Seattle, Washington. Each episode focuses on the wild adventures the crew goes through during their everyday lives while incorporating their newly popular webcast into their life. 

“I was so excited to hear that ‘iCarly’ was coming to Netflix. It was one of my favorite shows growing up,” sophomore Cameron Raymond said. 

The original run of the show consisted of 97 episodes. The series is considered a childhood favorite for many high school students. However, some fans are not completely pleased as Netflix released two seasons.  Seasons two and three are combined so technically all of the episodes are out on Netflix.

A series reboot of “iCarly” is in the works with the previous members of the show including Cosgrove, Kress and Trainor, reprising their roles from the original run. The new series will be released on ParamountPlus. The new series will be about an older Carly as she goes through her adult years and the struggles she faces while incorporating her webcast. 

“I already streamed all of the episodes on Netflix and now I am just waiting for the reboot,” freshman Lauren Buchwald said.

There’s no release date for the “iCarly” reboot, but CBS All Access will officially be rebranded as ParamountPlus on March 4.
