Carly Shay's Air Force Colonel Father Appears for First Time in Emotional Culmination of Beloved Series

Santa Monica, Calif. - Nov. 14, 2012 - 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.

"iCarly has been a truly definitional show that was the first to connect the web and TV into the fabric of its story-telling, and we are so very proud of it and everyone who worked on it," said Cyma Zarghami, President, Nickelodeon Group. "Like all truly great TV series like Seinfeld or Everybody Loves Raymond, iCarly is a very special show with a cast that is beloved by a generation of fans. Everyone in this cast will always be considered part of our Nickelodeon family and we thank them for giving kids so many great and happy memories over the years."

"I'm insanely proud to have created a TV show that's loved by so many people around the world, and I'm thrilled to have had the opportunity to work with this remarkably talented cast for the past five years," said Dan Schneider, iCarly creator and executive producer. "For the finale, I've always known that I wanted to bring Carly's dad home, so I could wrap up the series in a way that will be exciting for all iCarly fans."

Nickelodeon's multi-platform offerings for "iGoodbye" include highlights from the episode on Nick.com and will serve as a first-look location for fans to view exclusive behind-the-scenes footage, trailers, photo galleries, and more.
