New iCarly Revival Trailer Is Lighting Up Twitter

Nickedoleon's "iCarly" is great fun throughout its six-season run. The basic premise of a bunch of friends hosting an ultra-successful web show is a neat take on the concept of internet fame. Carly (Miranda Cosgrove), Sam (Jennette McCurdy), Freddie (Nathan Kress), Spencer (Jerry Trainor), and Gibby (Noah Munck) are a charming group of characters that are always able to captivate the viewer's attention with their antics. 

It wouldn't be unfair to say that "iCarly" is a pretty solid classic of the teen-oriented sitcom genre. Since we live in an age of "Fuller House" and "Friends: The Reunion," it's not exactly a huge surprise that an "iCarly" revival is about to drop on Paramount+, with many of the original stars returning to their famous roles. But how are the actors — who are nearly a decade older than they were when the original series ended — going to recapture the very specific energy of the show? 

Easily, if you ask fans. A trailer for the new "iCarly" just dropped ... and it's absolutely lighting up Twitter. 

Fans are loving the iCarly revival trailer

The "iCarly" Twitter account just released a trailer for the "iCarly" revival, and guess what? It turns out that a show about online influencers pulling amusing stunts and living their life works pretty well in the modern day. While the trailer is happy to remind you that this is "the show you grew up with," it also shows you that the characters are grown up, too. It also introduces us to new, exciting characters, like Harper (Laci Mosley).

Judging by Twitter users' reactions, the trailer has certainly piqued interest. "OMG the new 'iCarly' reboot trailer," user @maggiexrose tweeted. "I will definitely be seated." "It's more grown up and still manages to capture the spirit of the original show, at least from what we've seen in the trailer," @6to_Cortes analyzed. "Sign me up." Meanwhile, some fans were so enthralled by the trailer that they simply couldn't stop viewing it. "I've watched the trailer for the 'iCarly' reunion at least five times already," @Halverson21S tweeted.   

Some people seem a bit worried about the fact that Jennette McCurdy won't be returning as Sam, since she's stepped away from acting, and doesn't really think fondly of her days as a child star (via CNN). "watching that 'iCarly' trailer without Sam was painful," user @AirFedak wrote. 

Still, it certainly seems that the new "iCarly" has plenty of support behind it — and, going by the trailer, it may very well be at least as entertaining as the original.  

The new "iCarly" series is available for streaming on Paramount+ on June 17.
