According to sources, comedy veteran Kogen and iCarly star Miranda Cosgrove didn't click creatively, and those creative differences ultimately led to his departure.
iCarly is described by Paramount + as the new chapter for the most successful kids' sitcom of all time, where original cast members Miranda Cosgrove, Nathan Kress and Jerry Trainor join new friends to take a look at today's life, adventure and comedic mishaps.
Nickelodeon's original iCarly series ran from 2007 to 2012. This was followed by a group of best friends, Cosgrove, Trainor, Kress, and Jennette McCurdy, who webcasted as they grappled with everyday problems and adventures. During its original run, iCarly became a staple of pop culture, regularly breaking audience records with audiences of all ages. Nickelodeon is also producing the revitalization for ViacomCBS's Paramount + streaming services, which will be officially launched on March 4th.
Kogen previously worked with Nickelodeon on the School of Rock comedy series and created / produced Nick on the Nite series Wendell and Vinnie. He recently served as a consulting producer on yet another YA sitcom revival for a new streaming platform, Peacock's Punky Brewster. His credits also include The Simpsons and Frasier.
