iCarly fans all have the same complaint as long-awaited reboot finally arrives

ICARLY fans were left disappointed at Sam Puckett’s absence in the highly-anticipated iCarly reboot.

The first episode was a hit with viewers but many felt the revival was missing the spark of the original series without Carly’s beloved best friend by her side.

Fans took to Twitter to express their mixed emotions after the reboot aired its first episode on the Paramount Plus streaming service on Thursday, June 17, at 3am ET.

One user wrote: “I just can’t bring myself to care about the iCarly reboot without Sam.”

Another added their thoughts on the new series, saying: “Without Sam it definitely has lost some heart.”

Sam Puckett’s absence was explained on the show, with Carly and Freddie discussing how their friend was off living her dream after joining a biker gang.

Some fans were still able to appreciate the reboot without an appearance from the fiery Sam Puckett, as one gushed: “This was the perfect way to explain sam’s absence. it fits. it was also sweet that Carly was hesitant to restart icarly without her.”

Although Miranda Cosgrove is back as Carly Shay, Jennette McCurdy who played vlogger Sam Puckett for six seasons on the original show did not make a comeback.

Jennette revealed that she has quit the acting industry and had no plans to appear in the reboot of iCarly.

She opened up during a chat with fellow actress Anna Faris that she considers herself “done” with acting. 

The former child star said: “I quit a few years ago to try my hand at writing and directing—it’s going great.”

She continued: “I quit [acting] a few years ago because I initially didn’t want to do it … My mom put me in it when I was six and by sort of age, I guess, 10 or 11, I was the main financial support for my family.”

“I resent my career in a lot of ways,” she explained.

cant stop thinking about “iCarly doesn’t work without Sam” and Jennette not being in the reboot.

Carly also has a new best friend in tow in the form of Laci Mosley who plays Carly’s roommate Harper.

The iCarly reboot is available to stream now on the Paramount Plus streaming service for US viewers.
