New faces joining Bushwell Plaza are Laci Mosley, who plays Carly’s roommate and best friend Harper, and Jaidyn Triplett, who plays Freddie’s snarky and social media-savvy stepdaughter Millicent.
The 13-episode season will follow Carly and Co. in their twenties, navigating work, friends, love and family.
The cast of “iCarly” announced the premiere date in a video, singing happy birthday to Cosgrove, who cuts into a cake revealing a note that reads, “iCarly Premieres June 17th on Paramount Plus.”
Original “iCarly” star Jennette McCurdy, who played Carly’s rambunctious best friend Sam Puckett, will not return for the revival series after recently announcing she had quit acting. It is currently unclear whether Noah Munck, who played the eccentric Gibby Gibson, will appear in the new show.
The new “iCarly” is produced by Nickelodeon Studios and Awesomeness and executive produced by Jay Kogen and Ali Schouten, who also wrote the pilot. Cosgrove also serves as executive producer, with Trainor and Alissa Vradenburg serving as producers. The pilot was directed by executive producer Phill Lewis, who famously portrayed Mr. Moseby on Disney Channel’s “The Suite Life of Zack & Cody.”
