‘iCarly’ to Leave Netflix USA in February 2022

The first two seasons of Nickelodeon's beloved live-action comedy series iCarly will be leaving Netflix in the U.S. during early February 2022, What's on Netflix is reporting.


Netflix licensed the first two seasons (which turned out to be a repackaging of seasons 1-3) of iCarly and added the series to the platform's programming library on February 8th, 2021. However, all 64 episodes from those seasons are set to expire on February 8th, 2022 - exactly a year after they were licensed - with no current plans to add seasons 4 through to 6, which are available to stream exclusively on Paramount+ along with the revival series.

Over the past few years, Netflix has licensed quite a bit of Nickelodeon content, including TV movies Rocko's Modern Life: Static Cling and Invader ZIM: Enter the Florpus in 2019, Avatar: The Last Airbender and Legend of Korra in 2020, followed by iCarlyBig Time Rush and The Loud House Movie (produced by Nickelodeon for Netflix) in 2021 as part of ViacomCBS' strategy to expose Nickelodeon franchises to new audiences - something the company has been open about. During a interview with The Hollywood Reporter in July 2021, Brian Robbins, President & Chief Executive Officer of Nickelodeon, and Chief Content Officer of Kids & Family for Paramount+ talked more about ViacomCBS CEO Bob Bakish’s strategy to license to third-party outlets in a bid to expose content to bigger audiences before ultimately taking it back as an exclusive:

"That’s been my strategy from the start. There’s two great examples of that. Avatar: The Last Airbender was a series that ran for three seasons on Nickelodeon and was never a huge show, but had an amazing following. We licensed that show to Netflix and it exploded. Then we put this spinoff of Avatar, The Legend of Korra, on Paramount+, and it crushed it. That led us to our new relationship and bringing the creators of Avatar back to Nickelodeon to form Avatar Studios. We are now on our way to a full-fledged franchise strategy, creating films and spinoffs out of Avatar.

"The second example, which actually has paid off this month, is iCarly. We knew we were going to do a reboot of iCarly, it just took us a while to put it together. Once we knew we had it going, we licensed just a season or two of iCarly to Netflix and it exploded with new kids discovering it for the first time, and fans who grew up on it rediscovered it. The demand for the new show was at such a fever pitch by the time [the new show] launched that it propelled iCarly to be, if not the most successful show on Paramount+, one of the most successful shows."

Robbins also confirmed that series such as Avatar: The Last Airbender and iCarly would eventually be taken off of Netflix and become Paramount+ exclusives, adding "[y]es. And it’s not like this is some secret that we’re pulling the wool over anybody else’s eyes on other services. They’re happy to have the content and they understand the strategy. We’re very upfront about it."

When iCarly first came onto Netflix in the United States back in February 2021, it managed to gain ground in Netflix’s top 10s. In fact, it managed to spend 42 days in the overall top 10s (tracking both movies and TV shows) and 59 days in total in just the TV top 10s. In addition, since the kid’s top 10s were introduced later in 2021, the show has featured for 12 days.

The February 2022 removal date only applies to the United States for now. A number of other Netflix territories are also streaming iCarly including Argentina, Brazil, Colombia, Mexico and the United Kingdom. In all of those cases, Netflix is only streaming the first season. In the UK, it used to stream all three seasons until 2015. The first season was then re-added back in 2019.

'Avatar: The Last Airbender' Fan Creates Colorful Party Shots Representing the Four Nations

One inventive fan creates four shots based on the elemental nations from Avatar: The Last Airbender, showing off "how the four nations party."


A creative Avatar: The Last Airbender fan figured out "how the four nations party."

Calculated Cacoethes shared images and recipes for four alcoholic shots on Reddit, each representing one of the elemental nations from the beloved Nickelodeon's animated series. The Water Tribe's shot includes Blue Curacao, tonic water and gin; the Earth Kingdom's shot is made from berry vodka, mint liqueur and Sprite; and the Fire Nation's shot features Jรคgermeister, Fireball, Sprite and grenadine that is dripped "down the side so it sits at the bottom." As for the Air Nomads, they celebrate with a mixture of lemon vodka, triple sec, Sprite and Blue Curacao. Unfortunately, none of the recipes include cactus juice, even though it is the quenchiest.

"Water: Blue Curacao, gin, tonic water

Earth: berry vodka, mint liqueur, Sprite

Fire: Jaegermeister, Sprite, Fireball, drip grenadine down the side so it sits at the bottom

Air: lemon vodka, triple sec, Sprite, a few drops of Blue Curacao"

Calculated Cacoethes's colorful shots are only one recent example of highly creative works of fanmade content for Avatar: The Last Airbender. Another fan showed off their culinary mastery with delicious-looking pies based on fan-favorite characters; the Azula pie features "a sriracha pepper stir fry filling," embodying the Princess of the Fire Nation's temper. Fans can use the recipes to celebrate the upcoming premieres Avatar Studios' animated Avatar: The Last Airbender movie and Netflix's live-action adaptation of the original series.

ATLA's live-action adaptation was announced in 2018, with principal photography now underway in Vancouver, Canada. Many key characters have been cast so far, including Daniel Dae Kim as Fire Lord Ozai and Paul Sun-Hyung Lee as Uncle Iroh. As for the Gaang, Gordon Cormier will star as Avatar Aang, with Kiawentiio Tarbell and Ian Ousley as Katara and Sokka, respectively. It was also recently announced that Elizabeth Yu had been cast as Azula, with Maria Zhang set to portray Suki.


Beyond the culinary, there has been a wealth of new fan theories surrounding the series. One argues that Katara, not Zuko, is actually the rightful ruler of the Fire Nation after the end of the Hundred Year War and another provides a creepy explanation for Ozai and Azula's volatile behavior throughout the series.

Fans of Nickelodeon's iconic animated show have more to be excited about than just stunning fanmade content or the upcoming live-action series; Avatar: The Last Airbender is receiving its own tabletop role-playing game, Avatar Legends. However, while the game was originally scheduled to ship in early 2022, it has been delayed due to the ongoing paper shortage. Developer Magpie Games announced that Avatar Legends will now launch this summer, stating, "after a lot of digging and searching, we are sad to say that simply due to the volume of printed materials, we need to delay when you will be receiving the physical copies of the game."

Avatar's Prince Zuko Discovered on Decades Old 'Magic The Gathering' Card

Avatar: The Last Airbender's Zuko bears a striking resemblance to a Magic the Gathering card from 1994, leading to speculation about his origins.


Avatar: The Last Airbender's Prince Zuko bears a striking resemblance to an old Magic: the Gathering card from 1994, it's been discovered!

Avatar: The Last Airbender, created by Michael Dante DiMartino and Bryan Konietzko, remains one of the most popular Western animated series, achieving critical acclaim over its 3-year run on Nickelodeon and landing a Netflix deal for a new live-action series as well as new projects under Nickelodeon's Avatar Studios banner. The story follows Aang, the reincarnated "Avatar" whose duty is to maintain harmony among the four great nations - and his friends as they fight back against the tyrannical Fire Nation.

One beloved aspect of the show is the complex character development, particularly Zuko's (voiced by Dante Basco in the original series). He begins as the dishonored Fire Nation prince, tasked with capturing the Avatar and bringing him back to his father, the Fire Lord Ozai (Mark Hamill). Before long, he becomes one of Aang's closest friends and mentors as the group races to defeat Ozai and end the war between nations. Zuko's unforeseen redemption is one of the pivotal moments that leads to Aang finally learning firebending and being able to master the four elements.

Reddit user pand0vian may have discovered Zuko's design influence on an old Magic: the Gathering card titled "Nameless Race" while simply browsing old cards. The artwork features two shirtless individuals standing back-to-back with flowing topknots and either a scar or paint in the shape of a flame over their right eye. They appear coiled into a martial arts pose, ready to fight. Quinton Hoover drew the figures for Magic: The Gathering's 1994 expansion, "The Dark."


While the figure on the "Nameless Race" card bears a remarkable similarity to prince Zuko, the comparison appears to be a coincidence. According to DiMartino in the artbook Avatar: The Last Airbender (The Art of the Animated Series), Konietzko originally designed Zuko as a "scary-looking kid with a scar over one eye" to act as a young villain opposite Aang. Despite the resemblance, Zuko sports a full head of head in later seasons and eventually becomes the Fire Lord himself, brandishing an entirely new look.

With over 20,000 cards created since its inception, Magic: the Gathering boasts an incredible assortment of artwork, and it can be easy to find comparisons among other works of fiction. "Nameless Race" is a mostly forgotten relic, despite being a part of one of Magic the Gathering's most celebrated older sets released only one year after the massively popular trading card game's creation. Avatar: The Last Airbender was released more than 10 years later, and Zuko's character design is not uncommon given the Fire Nation's Southeast Asian design influence. It's unlikely that creators DiMartino and Konietzko plagiarized Hoover's design. What will be interesting to see is how Zukos's live-action counterpart, Dallas Liu, will look in the Netflix series when it comes out sometime in the next year or two.

JoJo Siwa Calls 5-Year-Old Cancer Patient Right Before Surgery

JoJo Siwa chatted with a 5-year-old cancer patient before surgery, telling her everything would work out and she would kick cancer's butt.

Photo: Jason Bergenfeld

As you see in the conversation between JoJo and Blakely Bergenfeld in the video below, JoJo's a pro at putting her young fans at ease, patiently answering the little girl's questions.

Blakely's parents, Jason and Kimberly Bergenfeld, told TMZ that the cancer diagnosis was sudden, after the little girl began experiencing headaches and fevers during a recent family ski trip.

TMZ is told Blakely's parents took her to a pediatrician when they got back to L.A., and the doctor noticed her liver was swollen and rushed her to the ER at L.A. Children's Hospital.

Blakely's dad says his daughter underwent a series of tests, and that's when doctors discovered cancer in her kidney. She underwent surgery to remove a giant tumor on her kidney on Friday, January 7.

TMZ has been told the surgery went even better than planned. She had to have her kidney removed because it was close to rupturing and would have been terminal if they had not treated it in time. The doctors also found tumors on her liver and lungs, which were removed. The doctors will know in the next few days exactly what stage and type of cancer she has, but she is stable and past the first step on her road to recovery.


It's been a whirlwind few days - TMZ was told Blakely had appeared completely healthy before she started feeling ill.

JoJo got involved after learning of Blakely's diagnosis through Dance Moms star Kira Girard and her husband, who are close friends with the Bergenfelds.

Blakely is a huge JoJo fan and was supposed to meet her at the Nickelodeon Kids' Choice Awards last March before the format was changed due to COVID.

JoJo wanted to personally reach out to Blakely before she went under the knife, reports TMZ, even offering to help the family cover medical expenses.

NickALive! sends its best wishes to Blakely and her family.
