Paramount+ renews iCarly reboot

iCarly stars Nathan Kress, Miranda Cosgrove and Jerry Trainor

ViacomCBS-owned streaming service Paramount+ has renewed its revival of sitcom iCarly for a second season and will launch a new concert documentary from Madonna.

Production on the second season of iCarly will begin in LA this fall and comes as the first season of the show is set to premiere on Paramount+ in Latin America and the Nordics on July 30 and in Australia on August 11.

Produced by Nickelodeon Studios, the new 13-episode iCarly series premiered in June on Paramount+ in the US and Canada and quickly became one of its top acquisition drivers, the fledgling streamer said. New episodes of the first season launch on Thursdays exclusively for Paramount+ subscribers.

It has ranked among Paramount+’s most-streamed titles since the series’ debut and picks up nearly 10 years after the original Nickelodeon show ended, following Carly Shay, played by Miranda Cosgrove, and her friends as they navigate work, love and family now as adults.

The new series is executive produced by Ali Schouten and Cosgrove, with Schouten also serving as showrunner. Jerry Trainor and Alissa Vradenburg serve as producers. The show was created by Dan Schneider and the original ran from 2007-2012 on Nickelodeon.

Production of the new iCarly series for Nickelodeon Studios is overseen by Shauna Phelan and Zack Olin, co-heads of Nickelodeon and Awesomeness live-action. Brian Banks serves as Nickelodeon’s executive in charge of production for the series.

In related news, Paramount+ will debut Madonna’s Madame X documentary film in the US, Latin America, Australia, the Nordics and Canada on October 8. Fans outside of these markets will be able to watch the documentary on ViacomCBS-owned MTV.

Filmed in Lisbon, Portugal by MTV Entertainment Studios, the film captures Madonna’s tour performance, which featured 48 on-stage performers including musicians and dancers from around the globe, and Madonna’s children.
