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!

How much should we shield our children from the news?

Are bad news stories too harrowing or can they inspire some interesting discussions?

We often listen to Radio 6 Music, preferably in the car, when I'm not taking David Bowie or Spiderman theme tune requests).

When the news comes on, I sometimes consider turning it down because I know that it will inevitably contain something tragic or harrowing.

But I don't – I usually turn it up.
