Fans of the iCarly revival series were left reeling in October 2023 when Paramount+ announced the show’s abrupt cancellation following its third season.

The unexpected decision left viewers with a myriad of unanswered questions, especially after a shocking cliffhanger in the season finale. However, Miranda Cosgrove, who has portrayed the beloved character Carly Shay since 2007, has recently expressed optimism about a potential movie to tie up the loose ends.

Speaking to Variety, Cosgrove revealed there is a significant possibility that she and the cast might return for a wrap-up movie. “I’m pretty sure it’s gonna happen,” she said with a smile. “So I’m excited, and I’d love to get to wrap up the story.”

The third season’s finale left fans on the edge of their seats with a dramatic turn of events. Carly was on the verge of marrying her longtime best friend-turned-boyfriend Freddie Benson, played by Nathan Kress.

Adding to the drama, Carly and her brother Spencer’s (Jerry Trainor) elusive mother, who had never been shown and was rarely mentioned in both the original series and the revival, made an appearance.

The revival series, which premiered on Paramount+ in June 2021, followed Carly Shay as she relaunched her popular web show iCarly, bringing back the quirky humor and heartfelt moments that made the original series a hit.


The original Nickelodeon series, which ran from 2007 to 2012 for six seasons, became a cultural phenomenon and solidified its place in the hearts of fans worldwide.

Cosgrove’s excitement about the potential movie mirrors the sentiments of the show’s loyal fan base.

In a previous interview with Entertainment Tonight in May, she discussed her eagerness to continue the storyline and acknowledged how important it was to fans. “I had a great experience getting to come back and do it for a few seasons, for sure. But I’d love to still be able to wrap up the story in some way,” she said. “Maybe, hopefully, someday, we’ll still do it.”

She elaborated on the idea of a wrap-up movie, expressing her hopes for a conclusive end to the series. “I feel like it would probably be more along the lines of maybe a movie, that would kind of wrap it all up or something like that. So that’s what I’m hoping for,” Cosgrove added. “I want to know who Carly’s mother is as much as [fans do]. It seems like a lot of people were hoping to see that.”

The prospect of a movie to conclude the iCarly revival has generated significant buzz among fans. The original series left an indelible mark on its audience, many of whom have grown up alongside Carly, Freddie, and Spencer.

The revival series brought a sense of nostalgia while introducing new dynamics and challenges for the characters, making the sudden cancellation all the more jarring.

Paramount+ has yet to confirm any plans for a wrap-up movie, but Cosgrove’s comments have sparked hope that the beloved series will receive the conclusion it deserves.

The actress’s enthusiasm for the project is palpable, and her desire to provide closure for both the characters and the fans is evident.

For now, fans can revisit both the original series and the revival on Paramount+, reliving the hilarious antics, heartfelt moments, and the unique charm that made iCarly a staple of their childhood.

As they await further news on a potential wrap-up movie, the legacy of iCarly continues to thrive, with its impact on pop culture and its dedicated fan base standing as a testament to its enduring appeal.

In the ever-changing landscape of television, where shows are often abruptly canceled without warning, the possibility of a wrap-up movie offers a glimmer of hope for fans who have invested their time and emotions into the series.

Whether or not the movie comes to fruition, the story of Carly Shay and her friends has already left a lasting legacy, one that fans will cherish for years to come.
