As of late, I have been overwhelmed with joy because some of my favorite shows and movies from my childhood are being released on streaming platforms. Now, Netflix is streaming the first two seasons of iCarly, making it available for a whole new audience and those who are feeling nostalgic ( like myself).


This is quite exciting for me because iCarly was an innovative show that highlighted all the tech-savviness and direction that the world would go into when it comes to online broadcasts. Carly (Miranda Cosgrove), Sam (Jeannette McCurdy), Freddie (Nathan Kress), and her brother Spencer (Jerry Trainor) all helped Carly with her internet show.

Fans were also over the moon with the news that iCarly is available to stream on Netflix, some even taking to Twitter to share their excitement. Take a look below:



The show, which aired on Nickelodeon from 2007 to 2012, chronicled Carly Shay who turned her life into an internet show. When the show became an overnight success, Carly then relies on Sam, Freddie, and Spencer to help her produce new episodes for her fanbase.

In addition, this became a huge accomplishment for the network as it received a TV movie, iGo to Japan in 2008 and five Emmy nominations for Outstanding Children's Program. Also, McCurdy got a spin-off series Sam & Cat, with Victorious star and pop icon, Ariana Grande. Both Sam & Cat and Victorious are available to stream on Netflix.

Moreover, iCarly became available on Netflix a little after more good news— the show will receive a revival, which is set to premiere later on this year on Parmaount+. The revival is set to star Cosgrove, Kress, and Trainor, but it is still unconfirmed as to whether or not McCurdy will be involved. Also, Ali Schouten (Diary of a Future President, Champions) and Jay Kogen (School of Rock, The Simpsons, Frasier) will produce the series.

I could not contain my excitement!

Kogen took to Twitter in December to talk about the news, saying, "People were asking what I was doing. Now I can tell you. We get to make iCarly for ADULTS! 'iCarly' Reboot With Original Stars Miranda Cosgrove, Jerry Trainor & Nathan Kress Ordered By Paramount+."

Although there will be a little wait for the new iCarly series, at least we have the opportunity to relish in the first two seasons of the original show for now. I sure will be!

Why as a mum and a psychologist I want us to talk more about dads

I am psychologist at the University of Sussex whose work is focused on supporting and researching parents - it has become clear to me that we need to worker harder to support the mental health of fathers. Here's why.

Children have a place on the frontlines of the culture wars

What Should We Do When the Culture Wars Invade Our Children’s Lives?

Children have a place on the frontlines of the culture wars

You know when there’s a controversy whether to include both sides to the Holocaust in a Texas school district, the culture wars have once again invaded the children’s lives. Similarly, in Southern Pennsylvania, books by people of color were banned (or per the official Central York School statement: “frozen” for an entire year.)

These discussions by the school boards are impacted by the bills passed in government, as in the case of House Bill 3979 requiring public school teachers to present various points of view when teaching about current events and social issues. Often, the impulse to clutch pearls and to “think of the children” is a rhetorical device to further political causes. As the larger climate in a racialized society such as the United States grapple with a history of slavery and the fight for racial justice--with the most current iteration being the black lives matter protests in the summer of 2020--what the children learn in schools have become a new battleground for those who land on opposing sides of this culture war.
