While we might not be seeing Sam in the upcoming iCarly revival, it surely wasn't for a lack of trying.
Lead actress and executive producer Miranda Cosgrove revealed to E! News that she actually reached out to Jennette McCurdy about the revival to try to get her to be a part of it.
"We all called her separately and we really wanted her to be a part of it, but at the same time I'm happy for her because I know that she's her life taken her in a different direction and that she's really enjoying what she's doing right now," she said. "So I think we all kind of did what we were probably meant to do."
In a separate interview with Entertainment Weekly, the actress also revealed that Sam's absence will be addressed in the first episode.
"Definitely, we touch a lot on the whole relationship with Sam and where Sam's at in the pilot episode," she revealed. "And then we mention her a little bit throughout the season, so we'll definitely explain that on the show."
Jennette previously talked about her time being an actress and noted that it wasn't a positive experience in her life.
With no Sam in this series, things will definitely be a bit different than we remember. However, at least Jennette is living her best life now than before.
