Miranda Cosgrove Talks About Returning to 'iCarly'

Miranda Cosgrove recently talked to Complex about what's its been like to return to her hit Nickelodeon comedy series iCarly for its upcoming revival! Check out an extract of the interview below, and be sure to read the full discussion on! iCarly returns June 17, exclusively on Paramount+!

Are you thinking of getting into any more films, or are you really focused on the revival and what you’ve got going on now?

We're going to be finished in like a month and a half just filming this season of the revival. I’ve been having a really good time kind of revisiting that, just because I’m hanging out with a lot of my old castmates that I spent so much of my childhood with.  I’ve really enjoyed it. But yeah, I’d love to have another experience like North Hollywood in the future, do another independent film and play a character that’s more out of my comfort zone, something I’m not so used to. I think that’s always great too.

How are you feeling right now, coming back into things?

Yeah. I mean, I’m in a whole different position now working on the revival than I was when I was a kid, because I’m actually an executive producer on it. So I’m getting to help edit all the episodes and I get to read all the drafts and the scripts and give notes and everything. That’s just been a whole new thing for me. I’ve never done anything like this before, and it feels really good, going from being a kid on a show and not really having a whole lot of control over what my character did in episodes or anything like that, to now getting to be such a big part of the process. So I’m really happy. I’m happy, and I’m grateful to have that opportunity to do it this way, and kind of revisit that character and just see how it goes. I hope people like it and it just makes people laugh.

Originally announced in December, the 13-episode season picks up nearly 10 years after the original show ended, and finds Carly Shay, the original influencer, and her friends navigating work, love and their family in their twenties. Production on the new iCarly series commenced earlier this year in Los Angeles.

The new iCarly series will feature two new cast members: Laci Mosley (Florida Girls) as Harper, Carly’s roommate and best friend; and Jaidyn Triplett (The Affair, See) as Millicent, Freddie’s snarky and social media-savvy stepdaughter. Mosley and Triplett will appear alongside returning original series stars, Miranda Cosgrove (Carly), Jerry Trainor (Spencer) and Nathan Kress (Freddie).
