Nickelodeon has officially announced that "iCarly" will end its run after six seasons. The show, which catapulted the career of Miranda Cosgrove, will film a special television event in June and air it later in November.
"When we film our very last scene, there will be a lot of crying, I know," creator and executive producer Dan Schneider told TV Guide. "But I also know that in television, you don't want to over-stay your welcome. I want to go out the way we are - on a creative high-note."
"I hope iCarly's legacy will be that it's a truly funny TV show that made people of all ages laugh, smile, and feel good," he added. "To the iCarly fans, I'd say, 'Thank you' a million times, for the love, support and true passion they've shown for iCarly. It's the fans that made iCarly a huge hit, and invited us into their homes on a daily basis, to entertain them."
Cosgrove, who portrays Carly Shay on the family-comedy show, plans to attend USC in the fall. Meanwhile, some other cast members have landed a new project on the network. Jennette McCurdy will star on a new live-action series from Schneider, Noah Munck is cast on a recently greenlit pilot, while Jerry Trainor lands a role on "Wendell & Vinnie" from producers Jay Kogen and Aaron Kaplan.
