“Welcome to the new iCarly,” Carly says in the trailer for the show, premiering June 17. Beginning with clips from the original series — which ran on Nickelodeon for six seasons from 2007-2012 — and set to the beloved theme song, the sneak peek features Carly as she revives her web show.

As OK! previously reported, the adult-themed iCarly will be a departure from the original. Trainor recently dished that the upcoming 13-episode season features "a lot of secrets" that will certainly shock fans. "I'll say the scripts are really funny, but I don't think anyone is expecting what we're doing," he said in an interview with ET. "I don't think a revival has been done quite this way."

During the interview, Cosgrove, Trainor and Kress were asked whether a romance between Freddie and Carly will be featured, after the characters kissed in the series finale. "I have no idea, and even if I did know, I wouldn't tell you," Kress joked. "We gotta keep things spicy for the folks at home. Right, Miranda?" 

Cosgrove replied, "Yeah, let's keep things spicy." Trainor added: "Too juicy to say."

Although the trio are all set to return, notably absent is Carly’s best friend Sam Puckett, played by Jennette McCurdy. OK! has learned she will not be joining the new series.

McCurdy detailed why she’s done with acting and essentially slammed her previous body of work. "I resent my career in a lot of ways," she said on the Season 2 premiere of her podcast "Empty Inside" earlier this year. "I feel so unfulfilled by the roles that I played and felt like it was the most just cheesy, embarrassing… I imagine there’s a very different experience to be had with acting if you’re proud of your roles."
