Since announcing his return, fans have been taken aback by the news that Sam (played by Jennette McCurdy) will not be present in the new 13-episode production with Miranda Cosgrove.
Pervaded by doubts about how the absence of the character would be explained, since she is part of one of the main iCarly cores, viewers of the series had their questions answered right in the first episode.
In revival, as Carly (Miranda Cosgrove) thinks back to her webseries’ return, she laments to Freddie (Nathan Kress) that Sam is missing. “I don’t need a new partner, I need Sam. But she’s following her happiness with that biker gang,” said the character.
In this way, the production’s scriptwriters managed to keep Sam’s adventurous spirit and at the same time make a connection with the series finale, shown in 2012, in which the character gets a motorcycle as a gift.
