In case you missed the news — Nickelodeon’s hit show, iCarly, was just picked up for a 5th season! That means Nickelodeon has ordered 13 new episodes of Spencer making weird faces, Gibby being awesome and Sam toting ribs!
iCarly is basic cable’s most watched show for kids. Last week’s episode “iOMG” –which featured a surprise Sam-Freddie kiss–scored a major 7.4 million viewers, beating all other cable shows. That’s also basic cable’s top kids’ telecast this year in total viewers!
According to Deadline, Miranda Cosgrove, the star of the show has been locked into a new contract. We’re interested to hear what it is! After all Cosgrove was already making seven figures and now that she’s been accepted to both USC and NYU, we’re sure there have been several adjustments!
Season 3 of iCarly is currently airing with new episodes on Saturday nights. Production of Season 4 begins in May. Production for Season 5 will begin in 2012 and air later that year.
