Nathan Kress To Finally Settle "iCarly" Love Triangle On Nickelodeon's "Game Shakers"

It's been four years since iCarly ended its successful run on Nickelodeon, but inquiring minds still want to know: Which girl did Freddie really like more, Carly or Sam?

In a fantastic interview with TVLine, iCarly star Nathan Kress, who played Freddie Benson on the hit Nick sitcom, has revealed that this very question is the basis for an upcoming episode of Nick's Game Shakers - which returns for Season 2 on Saturday 17th September 2016 at 8:30/7:30c on Nickelodeon USA - as the Shakers literally track down actor Nathan Kress to finally get an answer!

In addition to guest-starring as himself, Kress also serves as the episode's director. He told TVLine:

This week was such a blast for me. I never thought that I would have the opportunity to direct a project that I’m also acting in, at least so early in my career. I’m so excited for the opportunity to stretch myself on both sides of the camera. This week was very challenging but with the help of an immensely supportive cast and crew, I think we made a great show. The concept of the episode, and the little Easter Eggs we included definitely brought back the iCarly nostalgia. I even had the added bonus of getting to direct my wife in the episode, as well!

Created by hit-maker Dan Schneider (Henry Danger, iCarly, Victorious, Sam & Cat, Zoey 101, Drake & Josh, Kenan & Kel), Game Shakers follows a pair of girls, Babe (Cree Cicchino) and Kenzie (Madisyn Shipman), who, after creating a wildly successful mobile game app called Sky Whale for a science project, start a gaming company in Brooklyn called Game Shakers with their friend Hudson (Thomas Kuc).

But when Double G (Kel Mitchell, Kenan & Kel, All That, Good Burger), a unpredictable incredibly successful superstar rapper, finds out the girls used one of his songs in their game without licensing it, he threatens to sue them for all he is owed! To make things right, Babe and Kenzie decide to make the rap superstar their business partner and hire his son, Triple G (Benjamin Lil P-Nut" Flores, Jr, The Haunted Hathaways), as a game consultant. Together, Babe, Kenzie, Hudson, Triple G and Double G work to make Game Shakers a huge success in the gaming world.

In additional to directing the upcoming episode of Game Shakers, Nathan has also directed several episodes of Nickelodeon's superhero comedy series Henry Danger - also created by iCarly and Game Shakers mastermind Dan Schneider.

While we wait for the episode to premiere, lets hear your thoughts on this delicate matter: Do you think Freddie was more into Carly or Sam? And who did you 'ship more: Creddie or Seddie? Tell NickALive! on Twitter, Tumblr, Google+, on Instagram, and/or Facebook!
