It is created and executive produced by television hitmaker Dan Schneider (Victorious, Zoey 101, Drake & Josh).
“Our audience will be psyched to get more of what they love – new episodes of their favorite show, iCarly,” said Marjorie Cohn, president, Original Programming and Development, Nickelodeon. “We are excited to see what Dan Schneider will do next with our favorite characters.”
