Fan favorite Nickelodeon series iCarly is coming back!

TVLine reports that the long-running series is eyeing a revival of the show, which originally ran from 2007 to 2012.

Paramount+ streaming service, which is currently known as CBS All Access, has ordered the revival and it’s reported that original stars Miranda Cosgrove, Jerry Trainor and Nathan Kress will be returning.

No word on Jeannette McCurdy or Noah Munck‘s involvement just yet.

The original show centered on a trio of best friends who created a webcast while grappling with everyday problems and adventures. It’s not known what the update will focus on, seeing how at the end of the original show, Carly (Cosgrove) went to live with military father in Japan.

Miranda was just recently seen on ABC’s The Goldbergs.

Nickelodeon Pulls 'Made by Maddie' Animated Series After Backlash To 'Hair Love' Similarities

Nickelodeon has opted to pull their new animated series, Made By Maddie, after receiving backlash.

The network debuted the premiere date and first look earlier this week, which featured a Black lead cast and characters about the title eight-year-old girl from New York City who “uses her imagination and design ingenuity to turn every problem into a positive with the perfect fashion fix.”

After the first look at the show, many fans noticed similarities to Matthew A. Cherry‘s Hair Love, which won the Oscar for Best Animated Short Film in 2020.

The movie is now in development for a television spin-off on HBO Max.

Made by Maddie is a show we acquired several years ago from Silvergate Media, a renowned production company we have previously worked with on other series,” a spokesperson for Nickelodeon shared with Entertainment Weekly about the issue.

They added, “Since announcing the show’s premiere date this week, we have been listening closely to the commentary, criticism and concern coming from both viewers and members of the creative community. In response, and out of respect to all voices in the conversation, we are removing the show from our schedule as we garner further insight into the creative journey of the show. We are grateful to Silvergate Media for all of their work. And we hold Matthew A. Cherry and the wonderful and inspiring Hair Love in the highest regard.”

Earlier in the summer, Nickelodeon made a big statement about their most popular animated character, SpongeBob SquarePants. See what it was here…

White House Press Secretary Claimed 'PAW Patrol' Was Cancelled; But Nickelodeon Says It's Not

Nickelodeon is setting the record straight on whether or not its popular kids animated television show, PAW Patrol, was cancelled.

Earlier in the day, White House Press Secretary Kayleigh McEnany claimed the show had been cancelled by the network during a briefing today (July 24) while talking about cancel culture.

She had referenced both PAW Patrol and other television shows that were cancelled due to having police officers in the show.

“We saw a few weeks ago that PAW Patrol, a cartoon show about cops, was canceled,” she said. “The show Cops was canceled. Live PD was canceled. Lego halted the sales of their Lego City police station.”

She went on to claim that President Donald Trump “is also appalled by cancel culture, and cancel culture specifically as it pertains to cops.”

“It is really unfortunate, because I stand with, the president stands with, the 53 percent of Americans who believe police officers have the most important jobs in this country,” she added.

After her claims, Nickelodeon issued a short statement about the status of the show, and parents everywhere will rejoice about it. See it below!

PAW Patrol centers on dogs that hold positions in several areas of civil service, including first responders including a firefighting dog, a paramedic dog, and an aquatic rescue dog and more.

Did Nickelodeon Just Confirm SpongeBob SquarePants is Gay?!

Nickelodeon may have just confirmed to fans that the character SpongeBob SquarePants is gay. That’s at least how fans are interpreting the network’s latest tweet.

The @Nickelodeon Twitter account posted a Pride month message that seemingly confirmed the lovable character’s sexuality.

“Celebrating #Pride with the LGBTQ+ community and their allies this month and every month 🌈,” the network captioned the tweet, which included photos of SpongeBob, Henry Danger‘s Schwoz Schwartz, and Legend of Korra‘s Korra.

Korra is known to be gay or bisexual and Schwoz is played by transgender actor Michael D. Cohen. So, is SpongeBob part of the LGBTQ+ community as well?

SpongeBob’s sexuality has been in question for years and the show’s creator Stephen Hillenburg actually has said that the character is asexual, not gay.

Nickelodeon Announces Large Donation To Black Lives Matter Movement Amid Protests

Nickelodeon is giving back big to the Black Lives Matter movement amid ongoing protests for racial equality.

The network announced tonight, June 5, that they’ll be donating $5 million to several organizations including the NAACP Legal Defense Fund, National Bail Out, Amnesty International and others in an effort to amplify black voices and communities.

“We’re committed to amplifying the voices of Black communities, we condemn system racism, and we honor George Floyd and other victims of racial injustice,” Nickelodeon’s statement reads.

Earlier this week, Nickelodeon defended itself after going dark for 8 minutes and 46 seconds to recognize George Floyd‘s murder.

“Unfortunately, some kids live in fear everyday,” the network responded to one parent who said the statement and commercial scared her own children.
