Carly Shay’s Air Force Colonel Father Appears for First Time in Emotional

Culmination of Beloved Series

Nickelodeon’s groundbreaking and beloved hit comedy, iCarly, which has entertained millions of kids and made random dancing and spaghetti tacos pop culture phenomenons, will end its five-season run with an unforgettable hour-long series finale event on Nickelodeon Friday, Nov. 23, at 8 p.m. (ET/PT).


In “iGoodbye,” Spencer (Jerry Trainor) offers to take Carly (Miranda Cosgrove) to the Air Force father-daughter dance when their dad, Colonel Shay, isn’t able to accompany her because of his overseas deployment.  When Spencer gets sick and can’t take her, Freddie (Nathan Kress) and Gibby (Noah Munck) try to cheer Carly up by offering to go with her.  Colonel Shay surprises everyone when he arrives just in time to take Carly to the dance.  When they return from their wonderful evening together, Carly is disappointed to learn her dad must return to Italy that evening and she is faced with a very difficult decision.

    Wasn’t this press release – released days ago..? How come you guys are just getting it now?

    indeed, it was originally released on 11/14, but it was released again today, closer to the event and since we didn’t post it the first time around and since I was needing to test a couple of things with the site, I posted it.

    How come you’re annoyingly anal in public?

    I thought they split things up to make it look like it had 7 seasons? I know production wise they had 5 but I thought the split the 5th season up to make seasons 5, 6, & 7 with having like 11 episodes in season 5, 6 episodes in season 6, and 9 episodes in season 7.

    So, isn’t this the episode where we find out the entire series has just been a dream and Carly is really a 52 year transvestite hooker with a Commodore 64 in 1983?

    Even so, it will be far, far superior to the entire final season of Roseanne…

    I said this day would come eventually, as the characters should be moving on to college, and in the case of Miranda Cosgrove she is actually attending USC.

    While this finale was planned up to a year in advance, I’m shocked at the number of cable shows biting the dust. iCarly ends this weekend, Victorious will end in the spring, Boss, American Choppers, Dirty Jobs, Fairly Legal, Political Animals, and Common Law have all been cancelled, and Breaking Bad is ending its long run.

    This didn’t bid farewell in 2006? Could have swore this had been off for years.

  • Jon23812

    @NE1, How can a show that started in 2007 end in 2006?

    “This didn’t bid farewell in 2006? Could have swore this had been off for years. – NE1″

    No, I’m pretty sure it started in 2007.

  • ikin

    volverá a sorprender icarly con su audiencia…. se debe despedir como los grandes.. pro que eso es el grande del cable básico… 7-10 millones

    Not the best comedy series final (I think Scrubs had a real good one), but enough laughing and enough crying.
    I don’t think ‘Sam&Cat’/’Gibby’ will be a hit as this one, so nick luckily must try a lot of new for that big hit.
