New 'iCarly' Logo Unveiled?

Fans rejoiced last December when it was announced that Paramount+, the new streaming service from ViacomCBS, would be reviving Nickelodeon's iconic live-action comedy iCarly for an older audience, and now it looks like we've got our first look at the new iCarly logo!

As part of ViacomCBS' Q1 2021 earnings call presentation, the parent company of Nickelodeon and Paramount+ released a slide about how the company is leaning into its streaming content strategy. The slide features kids content from Nickelodeon, including the Paramount+ exclusives Kamp Koral: SpongeBob's Under YearsThe SpongeBob Movie: Sponge on the Run, the upcoming Rugrats reboot, and iCarly!

The picture for iCarly features the recently released cast photo for the rebooted series, along with what appears to be the show's new logo, which seems to be an app icon.

Although its not confirmed that this is the new iCarly logo, or even the finalized one, the new design does fit in with the show's new mature approach. 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.

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 AffairSee) 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).

Nickelodeon’s original iCarly series, which ran from 2007-2012, followed a group of best friends as they created a webcast for and about kids their age while grappling with everyday problems and adventures. During its initial run, iCarly became a pop-culture staple and regularly broke viewership records among audiences of all ages. The original iCarly series was created by Dan Schneider.

The new iCarly series is produced by Nickelodeon Studios and Awesomeness (To All The Boys I’ve Loved Before, Trinkets, PEN15). The pilot is written by Ali Schouten (Diary of a Future President, Champions, Merry Happy Whatever), who also serves as executive producer, and Jay Kogen (Nickelodeon’s School of Rock, The Simpsons, Frasier). Miranda Cosgrove also serves as executive producer, with Jerry Trainor and Alissa Vradenburg serving as producers. The pilot is directed and executive produced by Phill Lewis (One Day at a Time, The Neighborhood). Production on the new original series based on the hit sitcom, iCarly, for Paramount+ commenced earlier this year in Los Angeles and is slated to premiere on the service this summer.

Production of the new iCarly series for Nickelodeon Studios and Awesomeness is overseen by Shauna Phelan, Senior Vice President, Live-Action Scripted Content, and Zack Olin, Senior Vice President, Live Action.
