Update (3/26): iCarly is now on the Nick App!

For those who missed it, the World Health Organization (WHO) has reported that over 340,000 people have contracted virus so far, resulting in more than 15,000 deaths. Medical professionals have called for “social distancing” to prevent further spreading of the illness, which is defined as “trying to keep yourself away from other people, especially large crowds.” Because of this many events, concerts and festivals have been canceled or postponed, including SlimeFest, Kids' Choice Awards 2020, The SpongeBob Musical tour, JoJo Siwa D.R.E.A.M. The Tour, all Broadway plays and sports games. People have been asked to avoid public spaces and quarantine themselves during this time.

Naturally, fans right on board with the epic idea to stream the throwback show.

“Jerry leading the ‘put iCarly on Netflix’ revolution… Truly a king,” one person tweeted.

Many of his follower’s tagged Netflix in the tweet’s replies in hopes of getting the streaming service’s attention. From the look of it, the ball is now in Nickelodeon and Netflix’s court. Only time will tell if fans will be able to stream the show sometime soon.

As fans know, aside from Jerry, the show starred Miranda Cosgrove, Jennette McCurdy and Nathan Kress, and it aired from September 2007 until it ended in November 2012. The show followed the life of web star Carly, her best friends Sam and Freddie and her crazy brother Spencer. Throughout its seven seasons, fans saw plenty of romantic drama between the three best friends, a slew of incredible guest stars, including First Lady Michelle Obama and One Direction, and even a crossover with Victorious, as well as a spin-off with Sam and Cat (Ariana Grande) from Victorious!
