icarly

kids show icarly will end with a spe­cial episode in Novem­ber. The cast of the Nick­elodeon show will gather to shoot the fi­nale in July/au­gust be­fore star Mi­randa Cos­grove (left) heads off to univer­sity in Cal­i­for­nia. Cos­grove and Jen­nette Mccurdy, who play best friends and stars of a make-be­lieve web show in the se­ries, have been big hits with teenagers for the past five years. The com­edy, which also fea­tures Noah Munck, Nathan Kress and Jerry Trainor, de­buted in 2007 and has fea­tured guest spots from Cos­grove’s School of Rock co-star Jack Black and US First Lady Michelle Obama. While Cos­grove con­cen­trates on her ed­u­ca­tion, her cast­mates have all landed new shows at Nick­elodeon. ‘‘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,’’ se­ries cre­ator Dan Sch­nei­der says. ‘‘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. How do you say thank you to mil­lions and mil­lions of peo­ple all around the world for bring­ing you into their homes ev­ery sin­gle day? It’s amaz­ing. I’d love to take each and ev­ery icarly fan out to din­ner and give them a big ol’ bear hug!’’
