Following the news that beloved Nickelodeon sitcom iCarly will be making a comeback, it has been announced that the upcoming iCarly revival will be adding new faces to its universes.
Deadline has unveiled the addition of two new major cast members, Laci Mosley and Jaidyn Triplett, who will be seen on-screen when the iCarly revival streams on Paramount+.
The duo join original returning actors Miranda Cosgrove (Carly), Nathan Kress (Freddie) and Jerry Trainor (Spencer), reprising their roles from the show’s Nickelodeon iteration.
In the new series, Mosley will play the role of Harper, Carly’s new roommate and best friend. Prior to landing the role in this iCarly revival, she has appeared in various television series including Better Call Saul, Insecure and Florida Girls, as well as the 2019 feature film The Wedding Year.
In addition to her acting career, Mosley is also known for hosting the podcast Scam Goddess, which is described on Earwolf as “dedicated to fraud and all those who practice it!”
As the host, Mosley “keeps listeners up to date on current rackets, digs deep into the latest scams, and breaks down historic hoodwinks alongside some of your favorite comedians! It’s like true crime only without all the death! True fun crime!”
Also joining the cast as announced by Deadline is child actress Jaidyn Triplett. She will be playing Millicent, Freddie’s step-daughter, who is described as, “snarky and social media-savvy”.
Will Freddie attempt to get along with Millicent over their shared technology/social media interests? Only time will tell…
Prior to booking the role of Millicent in the iCarly revival, Ohio-born, Los Angeles-raised Triplett has appeared in several projects, according to her IMDB. This includes guest-starring roles on Station 19, Black-ish and The Affair among others, as well as starring in the miniseries Army of None.
Ali Schouten (Champions, All Night) co-wrote the pilot episode and also serves as the Showrunner/Executive Producer. Jay Kogen, who has since exited the project, was the other co-writer.
Former The Suite Life actor Phill Lewis (who played Mr. Marian Moseby) will serve as director/Executive Producer for the pilot. Additionally, cast members Cosgrove and Trainor are also producers.
