Miranda Cosgrove's 'iCarly' Renewed Up to Season 5


The popular kids show is in the middle of airing the third season and would begin the production of season 4 in May and season 5 next year.

Nickelodeon's juggernaut "iCarly" has been renewed for a fifth season. The children show fronted by Miranda Cosgrove scored a huge 7.4 million viewers on the recent Saturday, April 9 episode, making it the most watched basic cable program that week and a top kids' cable telecast this year in terms of viewers.

"Our audience will be psyched to get more of what they love - new episodes of their favorite show, iCarly," said Marjorie Cohn, Nickelodeon's president of original programming and development. "We are excited to see what Dan Schneider will do next with our favorite characters."

The fifth season is once again 13 episodes which production would start in 2012 for a premiere later that year, the press release said. Cosgrove herself has agreed on a new deal with the network.

iCarly follows Carly Shay (Cosgrove) and her best friends, Sam (Jennette McCurdy), Freddie (Nathan Kress) and Gibby (Noah Munck), as they create a webcast for and about kids their age while grappling with everyday tween problems and adventures. Carly lives with her older brother and guardian Spencer (Jerry Trainor) who produces her web show from a makeshift studio in the loft upstairs.
