''iCarly'' (2007-2012) was a Creator/{{Nickelodeon}} teen sitcom created by Creator/DanSchneider. [[TheKirk Carly Shay]] (Creator/MirandaCosgrove) is a lass in her mid-teens living in Seattle with her big brother and guardian Spencer (Creator/JerryTrainor), whose father has been deployed in the military for a decade or so. After an accident where her comments on a SadistTeacher's talent show made it onto a Website/YouTube-like site, [[InstantWebHit the positive internet reaction]] inspires her to make a creative web show with her two best friends. [[TheMcCoy Samantha "Sam" Puckett]] (Creator/JennetteMcCurdy) is a detention hall regular (and had been arrested several times) who craves meat, frequently mentions that her relatives are in prison or in parole, and keeps an array of dangerous tools in her backpack and locker. [[TheSpock Fredward "Freddie" Benson]] (Creator/NathanKress) is an intelligent tech-savvy boy who works as the camera man and keeps the iCarly site running. Along with his long-term crush on Carly, he has an extremely overprotective and neurotic mother (Mary Scheer).

As part of the Series/NickVerse, the show is a SpiritualSuccessor to ''Series/DrakeAndJosh'' being produced by the same people, and also including Creator/MirandaCosgrove leading the cast as Carly with that show's EnsembleDarkHorse, Jerry "Crazy Steve" Trainor, as Spencer. The two shows could be assumed to be in a wider world setting, with various [[Creator/DanSchneider Schneider-verse]] references showing up like Galaxy Wars, Daka Shoes, the Gary Coleman Grill, Peruvian Puff Peppers, and the Parker-Nichols Hotel. And don't forget the loads of [[ParentalBonus adult jokes and innuendos]] inserted into the show.

Interweaved amongst the webshow and school shenanigans are relationship issues between the FreudianTrio. A LoveTriangle slowly brewed amongst the three despite StatusQuoIsGod. The online fandom latched on to this, creating one of the biggest Nickelodeon shipping wars ever and rivaling some of the greatest {{Internet Backdraft}}s. There are a lot of fandom tropes discussed across the various pages for the show, such that the actual term {{Shipping}} and the associated pairings (complete with PortmanteauCoupleName) has been directly [[AscendedMeme referenced in the show]].

It had a CrossOver episode ''iParty With Series/{{Victorious}}'' (officially deemed as 3 ''[=iCarly=]'' episodes that are canon for both shows).

Despite its very good viewership in the first few seasons [[ScrewedByTheNetwork the show suffered a lot]] from [[ScheduleSlip very unstable air dates]], coupled by a very polarizing {{story arc}} that [[BrokenBase scattered the fanbase even further]].

The show ended its run on November 23, 2012 with the final episode ''iGoodBye''. Following this, Nickelodeon announced the creation of two {{Spin Off}}s. The first is ''Series/SamAndCat'' (Cat being from ''Series/{{Victorious}}'') in a cross-over that was picked up for a first season in 2013 before being cancelled in 2014. The second involved Gibby but it was not picked up for a full series.

Aside from a [[Characters/ICarly character sheet]], other sections are listed on the header links as well as a [[HoYay/ICarly Ho Yay/Les Yay page]]. Subjective and fandom-related tropes are under the YMMV link.
