Paramount+ to Revive 'iCarly' with Original Cast Members

Here’s some news that’s sure to wake up the members of iCarly’s nation: The series is returning!


ViacomCBS' Paramount+ streaming service (currently known as CBS All Access) has ordered a revival of the wildly popular Nickelodeon comedy, with original stars Miranda Cosgrove, Jerry Trainor and Nathan Kress all set to return.

Set to premiere in 2021, the new series will be produced by Nickelodeon Studios for Paramount+.

Jay Kogen (School of Rock, The Simpsons, Frasier) and Ali Schouten (Diary of a Future President, Champions, Merry Happy Whatever) have signed on to develop the update. They also will executive produce and serve as co-showrunners.

Kogen hinted on Twitter that the revival will be aimed towards adults, instead of kids like the original series: "People were asking what I was doing.  Now I can tell you.  We get to make iCarly for ADULTS!"

Update: Nickelodeon has confirmed the news on Instagram!:


It's currently unknown whether the new iCarly project is a reboot - as in, starting the series from scratch - or a revival, picking up where the characters are now.

The original iCarly series, which was created by Dan Schneider and aired on Nickelodeon from 2007-2012, running for 97 episodes over five seasons. The series followed a group of best friends - Carly Shay (Cosgrove), Freddie Benson (Kress) and Sam Puckett, played by Jennette McCurdy - creating a webcast while grappling with everyday problems and adventures. Trainor plays Carly's quirky older brother Spencer, who was known for his wacky inventions. The series included guest appearances by Michelle Obama, Emily Ratajkowski and Emma Stone.

During its original run, iCarly became a pop-culture staple and regularly broke viewership records among audiences of all ages.

McCurdy is currently missing from the main returning cast and there's also no sign of Gibby (Noah Munck).

iCarly ended in 2012 when Carly went to Italy with her dad while Sam went on to star in Sam & Cat, the short-lived series that brought together iCarly's Sam and Victorious' Cat Valentine, played by Ariana Grande. That show aired 35 episodes between 2013 and 2014.

Another spinoff, featuring Noah Munck's Gibby, filmed its pilot but was not picked up as a series. The series would of seen Gibby gets a gig at a recreational center where he winds up as a mentor to four offbeat middle-school students.

McCurdy, one of iCarly’s biggest breakout stars, had a public split with Nick as the first season of Sam & Cat was airing, famously skipping an appearance at the Kids’ Choice Awards where the series picked up an award for TV comedy and Schneider was presented with a lifetime achievement award. McCurdy later described it as an “uncomfortable, compromising, unfair situation,” sparking online speculation about Grande’s then-rising music career and pay disparities between the two actors.

The ViacomCBS network also abruptly cut ties with Schneider in 2018 following reports of “abusive behavior” toward staff. A prolific producer throughout the ’90s and into the 2000s, Schneider was responsible for some of Nick’s biggest live-action hits, including iCarly, The Amanda Show, Good Burger, Drake & Josh, Zoey 101, Victorious, All That, Kenan & Kel, Game Shakers and Henry Danger.

Since the series went off air, Cosgrove has had a few reunions with her former Nickelodeon costars, including a trip to Coachella with Jennette McCurdy in 2016. Two years later, she reunited with her former Drake & Josh costar Josh Peck in a video from YouTuber David Dobrik.

As previously reported, CBS All Access is set to be rebranded as Paramount+ in early 2021 as part of the service’s expansion to feature content from ViacomCBS’ portfolio of broadcast, news, sports and entertainment brands, including content from CBS and cable outlets Nickelodeon, MTV, Comedy Central, BET and Paramount Network. ViacomCBS will also bring Paramount+ to international markets with an initial debut in Australia, Latin American and the Nordics in 2021.

In addition to library episodes, Paramount+ will feature original programming based on beloved properties from ViacomCBS' portfolio of brands. One series will be SpongeBob SquarePants prequel Kamp Koral: SpongeBob’s Under Years. ViacomCBS has also hinted that Paramount+ could expand the Avatar: The Last Airbender universe.

“Paramount is an iconic and storied brand beloved by consumers all over the world, and it is synonymous with quality, integrity and world-class storytelling,” president and CEO Bob Bakish said in a statement at the time. “With Paramount+, we’re excited to establish one global streaming brand in the broad-pay segment that will draw on the sheer breadth and depth of the ViacomCBS portfolio to offer an extraordinary collection of content for everyone to enjoy.”

iCarly joins an ever-growing list of reboots and revivals coming to linear TV and streaming services over the next couple years, including Nickelodeon's Rugrats and Zoey 101, Peacock's Saved By the Bell, Clueless and Fresh Prince of Bel-Air, HBO Max's True Blood, Pretty Little Liars and Gossip Girl. Disney+ is currently in limbo with Lizzie McGuire and Showtime is also reviving Dexter as a limited series.


TVLine was first to report the reboot.

NEW YORK, NY--Dec. 10, 2020--ViacomCBS, Inc. (NASDAQ: VIAC, VIACA) today announced that Raffaele Annecchino has been appointed President and CEO of ViacomCBS Networks International (VCNI), effective immediately. He succeeds David Lynn, who is stepping down and will depart the company following a transition period.

In his new role, Annecchino will oversee all of ViacomCBS’s media networks and related businesses outside the U.S. As part of this, he will be responsible for a portfolio of pay-TV entertainment brands and broadcast networks across six continents – including Channel 5 in the UK, Telefe in Argentina, Network 10 in Australia and Colors in India through a joint venture with Viacom18 – and work closely with ViacomCBS’s global streaming organization to help guide the continued international rollout of Pluto TV and the launch of Paramount+ in 2021. He will report to Bob Bakish, President and CEO, ViacomCBS.

“Raffaele is an entrepreneurial, results-oriented leader with a proven ability to transform businesses and drive growth across diverse markets,” said Bakish. “In recent years, Raffaele has taken on increased responsibility, demonstrating strategic and operational expertise that extends across a wide variety of geographies and platforms. His experience in expanding ViacomCBS’s international footprint, forging key partnerships and accelerating our push into mobile and digital platforms will be critical to building on our leadership positions across Europe, Latin America and Asia and realizing our global ambitions.”

Bakish added, “I want to extend my deepest thanks to David for his many contributions over the past two decades, from integrating the international portfolios of CBS and Viacom to overseeing the launch of Viacom International Studios, including the acquisition of Ananey and repositioning the division to enable the continued expansion of our global streaming offerings. I’m grateful for his dedication and leadership and wish him the best as he starts this next chapter.”

“It’s an honor to step into this role and help continue ViacomCBS’s strong momentum around the world,” said Annecchino. “We have an exciting opportunity to broaden the company’s reach through new, innovative distribution channels and partnerships, and I look forward to working with Bob and the rest of the team to execute against our growth initiatives.”

Over the course of his 23-year tenure, Annecchino has held a number of positions across ViacomCBS Networks International, formerly Viacom International Media Networks (VIMN). Most recently, he served as President of ViacomCBS Networks Europe, Middle East, Africa and Asia (EMEAA), during which time he oversaw operations across a range of markets and led and coordinated VCNI’s mobile strategy globally. Among his achievements were the launch and acquisition of free-to-air channels in the key markets of Italy, Spain and Germany, and the creation of a new business unit in September 2020 to help drive ViacomCBS’s digital businesses across the EMEAA region, including capturing opportunities across free and pay streaming, advanced advertising and ViacomCBS Digital Studios International. Annecchino also led the expansion of Pluto TV in Europe with the recent successful launch of the service in Spain and the upcoming roll out in France and Italy in 2021.

Prior to joining MTV Networks International in 1997, Annecchino held positions at Turner International, Cartoon Network and CNN. He holds a Bachelor of Economics from the European Business School, London, UK, and an Executive MBA from the Instituto de Empresa International, Madrid, Spain. He completed the CTAM U Executive Management Program at Harvard Business School in 2016 and the CTAM Europe Executive Management Program at INSEAD in 2017.

Lynn commented, “It’s been an honor and a privilege to spend the greatest part of my career at ViacomCBS. From my early days at Comedy Central and Nickelodeon to more recently managing teams across our global portfolio, I’ve benefitted from working with the most dynamic, talented team in the industry – who in this most challenging year succeeded in transforming the business for the next important phase of growth.”

As President and CEO of VCNI and, before that, VIMN, Lynn was responsible for numerous strategic growth initiatives to diversify the company’s international business, which led to a significant increase in the company’s digital advertising and subscription revenues, among other achievements. As part of this, Lynn oversaw the launch of Viacom International Studios and the international rollout of Pluto TV and Noggin. Previously, he served as President of VIMN UK, Northern and Eastern Europe, where he oversaw Viacom’s global distribution strategy and led the acquisition of Channel 5 Broadcasting and its integration into Viacom. Before that, he was SVP, Managing Director, for Nickelodeon UK, where he strengthened its position in one of the UK’s most competitive viewing demographics, launching Nick Jr. and kick-starting its digital strategy.

CBS All Access Launches New Product Features for Families and Expands Kids Programming

CBS All Access Launches New Product Features for Families and Expands Kids Programming

New Features Include “Kids Mode,” Multiple User Profiles Per Account in Addition to the Service’s Existing Parental PIN Controls

New Kids Programming Added to the Service Includes Nearly 800 Episodes of Nick Jr. Favorites Like “PAW Patrol,” “Blaze and the Monster Machines,” “Blue’s Clues,” “Bubble Guppies,” “Dora the Explorer” and “Shimmer and Shine”


NEW YORK, NY--Dec. 09, 2020--CBS All Access, ViacomCBS’ digital subscription video on-demand and live streaming service, today announced new product features for families and the addition of even more Nickelodeon and Nick Jr. library programming, as the service continues its expansion across the ViacomCBS portfolio in advance of its upcoming rebrand to Paramount+.

The new family-friendly features include the ability to create up to six profiles per account and manage each profile using “Kids Mode,” which allows parents to create profiles that limit content to older children or younger children based on content ratings. The service’s existing parental PIN controls’ option for mature content, which locks access to certain content based on its content rating, will also still be available to use across profiles.

“We are thrilled to bring even more popular kids hits from Nick Jr. and Nickelodeon to the service, in advance of our upcoming rebrand as Paramount+,” said Rob Gelick, Executive Vice President and General Manager, Streaming Services and Chief Product Officer, ViacomCBS Streaming. “We’ve already seen incredible growth in viewership since we began expanding our offering of children’s programming on the service. With today’s new product enhancements, like ‘Kids Mode’ and multiple profiles, we can create customized experiences for each member of the household, while giving our subscribers even more opportunities to discover and watch family programming together, and allowing parents additional peace of mind with the ability to further customize what programming is available to their kids.”

In addition, CBS All Access introduced nearly 800 more episodes of children’s programming to the service, including select past seasons of Nick Jr. favorites PAW PATROL, BLAZE AND THE MONSTER MACHINES, BLUE’S CLUES, BUBBLE GUPPIES, DORA THE EXPLORER, SHIMMER AND SHINE and more.

All CBS All Access children’s programming is available commercial-free. The new library content being added to the service today joins an already robust roster of over 1,000 episodes of library and original children’s programming, including the service’s previously launched original children’s series, WildBrain’s CLOUDY WITH A CHANCE OF MEATBALLS, Boat Rocker’s new DANGER MOUSE and new editions of LASSIE, GEORGE OF THE JUNGLE and MR. MAGOO from DreamWorks Animation’s Classic Media.

Original children’s programming on the service will continue to expand with the first spinoff from one of ViacomCBS’ biggest global franchises ever, Nickelodeon’s SPONGEBOB SQUAREPANTS, when new series KAMP KORAL premieres in early 2021. The service will also be the exclusive home to THE SPONGEBOB MOVIE: SPONGE ON THE RUN, the upcoming feature film that follows SpongeBob SquarePants, his best friend Patrick Star, and the rest of the gang from Bikini Bottom in the first-ever all CGI SpongeBob motion picture event.

Intellectual Virtues Academy of Long Beach also received a check of $25,000 from comedian Gabriel “Fluffy” Iglesia and Nickelodeon.

Intellectual Virtues Academy of Long Beach, a free public middle school in Long Beach, will be featured on Nickelodeon’s show ‘The Substitute’ this coming Thursday, December 10th, at 8:30 pm (Pacific).

During taping of the show, a celebrity was transformed by a team of special effects artists to go undercover as a substitute teacher – the ultimate surprise being the celebrity’s reveal to a group of unsuspecting students. IVA students and staff participated in the Christmas-themed episode with comedian/actor turned faux substitute teacher Gabriel “Fluffy” Iglesias.

Nickelodeon’s show ‘The Substitute’ was created to celebrate and support educational organizations through exposure to its viewers, and to provide generous monetary donations.

IVA is proud and grateful to announce that through the generosity of Iglesia and Nickelodeon, the school received a check of $25,000, which will be used to help students during a challenging year of distance learning due to COVID-19. Iglesias stated during filming that as a youth who grew up in Section 8 housing in Long Beach, giving back to the local community was important to him.

IVA opened its doors in 2013 to serve middle-school-aged students in the diverse community of Long Beach and surrounding cities. IVA also has a sister high school spanning grades 9-12.

Both schools’ curriculum and teaching models make significant use of Harvard’s Project Zero research, especially the work of Ron Ritchhart and his colleagues. Since their opening, IVA and The Academy have received national attention for implementing intellectual character growth through exposure to thoughtful, challenging and supportive academic environments.

Panini, Graphic MSP and Nickelodeon Team Up for 'Monica's Gang & Garfield' Comic Series

Panini Comics and Brazilian comic book series Graphic MSP are collaborating with ViacomCBS and Nickelodeon on a new comic book series which will crossover Monica's Gang and Garfield!


The limited-issue Turma da Mônica & Garfield comic series (4-issues) is set to be released in 2021, and will bring characters from beloved Monica's Gang and Garfield franchises together for the first time. At the moment, it looks like the series will only be released in Brazil.

The news was announced during Mauricio de Sousa Produções' CCXP Worlds panel.


Franchise wise, Turma da Mônica is very similar to Like GarfieldTurma da Mônica is a newspaper comic strip in Brazil. The stories revolve around the adventures of Monica and her friends in the fictional Lemon Tree Street (Bairro do Limoeiro) of São Paulo. Also similar to Garfield and U.S. Acres, The Monica’s Gang umbrella title also encompasses Chuck Billy 'n' Folks, Tina's Pals, Lionel's Kingdom and Bug-a-Booo, among other series.

ViacomCBS announced in August 2019 that, through one of its subsidiaries, it had entered into a definitive agreement to acquire Paws, Inc., the entity holding global intellectual property rights to the Garfield and the U.S. Acres (a.k.a. Orson’s Farm) franchises--including corresponding rights related to content, consumer products, and location-based experiences for the Nickelodeon portfolio.

From UHQ:

Reveladas as quatro Graphics MSP de 2021 e Turma da Mônica se encontrará com o gato Garfield

O painel da Mauricio de Sousa Produções na CCXP Worlds trouxe várias novidades que chegarão em 2021. O vídeo contou com as participações de Mauricio de Sousa, do editor Sidney Gusman, do diretor de arte Wagner Bonilla e do Cebolinha, personagem que completa 60 anos e que "lackeou" a transmissão.

O primeiro teaser do filme Turma da Mônica - Lições também foi exibido, e você pode ver clicando aqui ou no vídeo que está no final deste artigo. Assim como aconteceu com Turma da Mônica - Laços, o longa-metragem é baseado nas graphic novel Lições, de Vitor Cafaggi e Lu Cafaggi.

Por falar nos autores, eles estão de volta ao selo Graphic MSP, agora trabalhando com outros personagens. Confira abaixo as quatro graphic novels que serão publicadas em 2021 pela Panini Comics, em sua ordem de lançamento, e clique na galeria para ampliar os teasers. São duas continuações e duas estreias.

Franjinha, por Vitor Cafaggi;
Chico Bento, por Orlandelli;
Magali, pro Lu Cafaggi;
Piteco, por Eduardo Ferigato.

Outras novidades foram uma caixa reunindo as seis edições da primeira temporada de Turma da Mônica - Geração 12 e uma coleção que reunirá as histórias clássicas que saíram nas revistas Mônica (1970), Cebolinha (1973), Cascão (1982), Chico Bento (1982) e Magali (1989), da Editora Abril. Entre 2007 e 2015, a Panini republicou essas aventuras em caixas colecionáveis com revistas fac-símile (reproduções das publicações originais), que durou 50 volumes.

Além disso, teve o anúncio do encontro da Turma da Mônica com o gato Garfield, das tiras em quadrinhos de Jim Davis. O projeto é uma parceria da MSP com a Panini e Nickelodeon, da Viacom, e chega após a turminha já ter se encontrado com os personagens de Osamu Tezuka e da DC Comics em anos anteriores. Outros detalhes serão revelados em 2021.

Já na área de animação, vem aí Turma da Mônica Baby.

O painel foi disponibilizado, na íntegra, no canal da Mauricio de Sousa Produções no YouTube. Assista abaixo:

Nickelodeon and Paramount Home Entertainment are planning to release The Legend of Korra – The Complete Series Limited Edition Steelbook Collection on March 16th, available on Amazon.com, ComicBook.com has revealed.

The set collects all four seasons of the Emmy Award-winning series in one package featuring new artwork by artist Caleb Thomas, handpicked by series co-creator Bryan Konietzko, who also designed Avatar's Steelbook collection, released earlier this year to mark the show's 15th anniversary.

Each book features one of the different bending elements (Fire, Water, Earth, and Air). The front covers shows Korra's transformation as the Avatar, while the back covers show key moments from throughout the series. This collection will have a limited production run of 10,000 units.

"The spirit of the Avatar lives on in the complete series of The Legend of Korra! Relive every moment from all four books. From meeting Avatar Korra, a teenage girl from the Southern Water Tribe, in book one, to opening the spirit portal and entering a new age where spirits and mankind coexist in books two and three, to embarking on a journey of self-discovery and restoring balance to the Earth Kingdom in book four, you won’t want to miss a second of air, earth, water and firebending in this complete collection!"

Created by Konietzko and Michael Dante DiMartino, The Legend of Korra begins 70 years after Avatar: The Last Airbender's finale and introduces brand-new characters and settings. The series follows the new Avatar, Korra, as she faces the difficult challenges, duties, and responsibilities of being the Avatar.

The series aired on Nickelodeon and Nick.com from April 2012 through December 2014, earning critical acclaim, a devoted fan following, and Annie and Primetime Emmy awards. The series features the same blend of anime and traditional animation as the original Avatar: The Last Airbender series, with a voice cast that includes Janet Varney, David Faustino, P.J. Byrne, J.K. Simmons, Seychelle Gabriel, Dee Bradley Baker, and Mindy Sterling.
