Drake Bell, Josh Peck, Miranda Cosgrove And Jennette McCurdy Hint At "Drake & Josh" And "iCarly" Reunions

Drake Bell, Josh Peck, Miranda Cosgrove and Jennette McCurdy have hinted in recent interviews that there might be "Drake & Josh" and "iCarly" reunions in the near future!

In a interview with MTV News, Miranda Cosgrove told MTV that an "iCarly" reunion is not only not out of the question, but it's something that would be pretty natural considering how close the cast has remained! "That would be fun," Cosgrove said at the NBC Upfront presentation on Monday 11th May 2015, where Miranda promoted her upcoming NBC fall sitcom "Crowded". "I mean, I love the cast of the show, I see them all the time. Jennette [McCurdy] is like, one of my best friends, and I see Jerry [Trainor] all the time, so I think that that would be really fun."

So does this mean we'll be seeing Carly, Sam, Spencer and the gang doing the show from Italy, where Carly moved to with her Father during the show's 2012 series finale? Not so fast - if Cosgrove is going to do a "Full House"-style reunion, she wants to do it in the land of Starbucks and Richard Sherman! "At the end of the show she moves to Italy, so I’d like to see her come back to Seattle and get back to the way things used to be," Cosgrove concluded.

Following Miranda's positive comments about a "iCarly" reunion, whilst Jennette McCurdy was a guest on "The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon" on Thursday 11th June 2015 to promote her new Netflix show "Between", comedian Jimmy Fallon asked Jennette about her thoughts on the possibility of a "iCarly" reunion, bringing up Miranda Cosgrove's recent interview with MTV News.

McCurdy feels the same way, saying she's "absolutely" on board. "I love that cast, and I loved the show," says the 22-year-old actress. And both stars mentioned how they are besties in real life, too!

Fallon, who is a huge fan of "iCarly" and even gets notifications on his phone if there's any "iCarly" news, responds, "Oh, this is big. This is good. Now it's out there!"

So, whether or not there's an official reunion movie of some sort on Nickelodeon, it would not be surprising to see Fallon, who guest starred in the "iCarly" special "iShock America"/"iShock The World" in 2012, make his own "iCarly" reunion on "Tonight." He did it for "Saved by the Bell"!

Separately, Josh Peck and Drake Bell have also been hinting that there could be a "Drake & Josh" reunion in the near future!

Following a interview with Josh Peck about a possible “Drake & Josh” reunion, his onscreen partner in crime has responded to fans cries!

"I'm down as well!" Drake Bell tweeted over the weekend with a screengrab of MTV News' interview, putting an end to our endless suspicions!

With the titular characters of "Drake & Josh" officially onboard, could a reunion special actually happen? That all depends on creator Dan Schneider.

"I feel like there's a small part of [Schneider] that's had some ideas since the day we stopped filming," Peck told MTV News. "And he's like, 'When the world's ready, I'm going to blow the world's mind with this one.'"

Most fans would probably agree, that's definitely an understatement. Fans are already freaking out over a potential "Drake & Josh" reunion and nothing has even been confirmed yet!

Dan Schneider recently hinted that he may be making a brand-new television movie based on one of his hit Nickelodeon shows, asking fans to tell him, if he were to make a new "retro" TV movie based on one of his popular Nick shows, which series do they think it should it be - "iCarly", "Drake & Josh", "Victorious", "Kenan & Kel", "Sam & Cat", or "Zoey 101"!

"I think people are always sort of begging for some sixth season of 'Drake & Josh' and whatnot," Peck said. "To just pick it back up without ever acknowledging that there was a 10-year gap might be a little odd — because we definitely put on some years, but if they figured out a really cool fun way to bring back the entire cast and do, I don't know a three episode mini-series or something, that would be dope. I'll go work at the movie theater again." He added: "I'm going to do every scene shirtless and maybe pantsless."

Now, what say you, Miranda Cosgrove? It's wouldn't be a complete "Drake & Josh" reunion unless Megan is there to spoil their fun. Altogether, one, two, three... "Megan!"
