SANTA MONICA, Calif., Nov. 16 (UPI) -- Nickelodeon has announced plans to air "iQuit iCarly," a new television-movie companion to its U.S. comedy series "iCarly."
Like the show, the film will star Miranda Cosgrove and Jennette McCurdy.
"iQuit iCarly" is slated to premiere Dec. 5.
"A rift between 'iCarly' BFFs Carly Shay and Sam Puckett puts their friendship to the test and takes its toll on their popular Web show," Nickelodeon said in a news release.
Leading up to the movie's premiere, Nickelodeon will air a marathon of "iCarly" episodes -- as chosen by the viewers in an online poll -- chronicling the relationship between the best friends, the network said.
