iCarly reboot star Miranda Cosgrove has weighed in on the possible romantic future for Carly and Freddie, which some fans have long stanned. Speaking exclusively to Entertainment Tonight, Cosgrove shared her thoughts on her character ending up with Freddie, played by iCarly co-star Nathan Kress. "I'm really surprised that the fans are still so passionate about who they want Freddie to end up with and just all of that," Cosgrove said. "It kind of cracks me up a little bit. But also, we want to do right by all the fans."
Cosgrove went on to clarify, "I don't think that Carly and Freddie are going to make a decision or end up together anytime soon. But it's definitely really fun to do those stories where we get to be together...I like Carly and Freddie's relationship, and Nathan's so much fun to work with in real life. So we had a really good time." She added, "They might be end game. They might have to be. Anything's possible. It's always so fun starting a new season too because I never even know what the storylines are going to be. So I'm waiting to find out what crazy stuff we're going to be up to [next] season."
