Jennette McCurdy Quits Acting, Embarrassed By Past Roles
The reboot of the Nickelodeon series will premiere on Paramount+ and will largely feature much of the original cast, save for Noah Munck and Jennette McCurdy, who recently confirmed she’s done acting.
“I quit a few years ago to try my hand and writing and directing—it’s going great,” she explained on the latest episode of her Empty Inside podcast. “My mom put me in it when I was 6 and by sort of age, I guess, 10 or 11, I was the main financial support for my family…I ultimately quit after my mom passed away because with her death kind of died a lot of her ideas for my life.”
At this time, it’s unclear where iCarly will pick back up, seeing as the show ended with Carly (Miranda) moving to Italy with her dad and Sam (Jennette) reuniting with Ariana Grande‘s Victorious character on the spinoff series, Sam & Cat.
Regardless, fans of the Nickelodeon series are more than excited to see what’s happened to the beloved characters in the eight years since they said goodbye. And Nathan is excited to return to his role as Freddie too. He tweeted, “Wake up the members of my nation,” a lyric from the show’s theme song.
So much has changed for Nathan (we’re talking marriage plus fatherhood) and the rest of the cast over the past almost decade. From major career changes to blockbuster roles, check out what the cast is up to these days in our gallery below!
