The trailer for the upcoming “iCarly” reboot gave us a preview of the things and characters that will be making a comeback and to say that we’re excited is an understatement!
But it’s not just what we saw that left a mark on us—what we heard did, too. In case you’re wondering if what you heard in the trailer was the original “Leave It All To Me” version, the answer is yes.
Miranda Cosgrove said that she thought about re-recording the show’s theme song, but ultimately decided to keep the original version. In an interview with Seventeen Magazine, she shared how she “fought so hard” to keep it.
“I fought so hard to keep the original theme song. We went around a bunch of times, thinking of maybe re-recording the same song now or doing a different song,” she said.
Miranda shared that her experience as a viewer—of wishing to hear the original theme song in reboots of other shows—helped her make the decision.
“For me, when I watch revivals, I always am hoping for the original theme song and I feel like none of them ever really stick with the original. So we ended up going with the same one in the end,” she said.
We’re so excited to hear the same song we heard growing up to be played again in the new “iCarly” episodes! If you haven’t seen the trailer yet, check it out below:
