During the Paramount+ Streaming Event in February, the company revealed other big Nickelodeon reboots and remakes as well. The hit series iCarly, starring Miranda Cosgrove and Jennette McCurdy, is getting a revival at the streamer. Notably, McCurdy will not be involved with the new show as she is no longer acting. Another iconic Nick show coming back is Avatar: The Last Airbender. Fans who sign up now can stream the new SpongeBob movie, Sponge on the Run, as well as the new SpongeBob series Kamp Koral: SpongeBob's Under Years. Try it free at paramountplus.com!
