The reboot of “iCarly” is definitely going to be more grown-up than the original series.

“It’s basically an Andrew Dice Clay concert,” Jerry Trainor, reprising his role as Spencer Shay, jokes. “No, [but] we’re going to toe that line, you know what I mean? It’s not going to be super-raw … but yeah, there’s going to be sexual situations.

“And you know, I say ‘damn it’ in the trailer, which had everyone in a tizzy, but you know we’re grown-ups.”

The original “iCarly,” which ran on Nickelodeon from 2007 to 2012 starred Miranda Cosgrove as Carly, a teenager who creates the titular web show with her pals.

Nathan Kress, who played nerdy Freddie Benson, tells Page Six that the show has evolved.

“This is an adult show and it’s not specifically for kids,” he stresses. “And that’s been exciting for us — to just see where these characters from a kid’s show would be and where they are in their life now, 10 years later. But in a very realistic, non-glossy way.”

Kress, now 28, confesses that he had some adoring fans the first time around because “I think geek chic was really coming into its own during that phase” but notes that he’s seen things drop off.

“Something weird happened where, since becoming a father, that all just sort of went away,” he says, laughing.

And Trainor, 42, who has the demeanor of an excitable Labradoodle, is thrilled to be back.

“I feel young. I feel ageless,” he crows. “I feel like I am stepping back into comfy shoes. I love multi-cam. It’s all I’ve ever wanted to do.”

One person who definitely won’t be back for the adult yuks is Jennette McCurdy, who played Sam Puckett.

McCurdy, 28, confessed in a recent episode of a podcast she hosts called “Empty Inside” that she’s “ashamed” of her past acting career.

“My experience with acting is, I’m so ashamed of the parts I’ve done in the past,” she said. “I resent my career in a lot of ways. I feel so unfulfilled by the roles that I played and felt like it was the most cheesy, embarrassing [thing].”

“iCarly” will premiere this Thursday, June 17th with three episodes. The remaining 10 will then drop weekly, exclusively on Paramount+.
