What is Dan Schneider's net worth? Nickelodeon parted ways with 'iCarly' creator amid alleged abusive behavior
According to Variety, original series stars Miranda Cosgrove, Jerry Trainor and Nathan Kress are all set to be back in the new version
‘iCarly’ fans were in for a pleasant surprise. The revival of the Nickelodeon series has been ordered at Paramount Plus. The original ran for six seasons, from 2007 to 2012 on Nickelodeon and had 97 episodes. The story followed a group of best friends creating a webcast while dealing with everyday problems and adventures. It was a popular series.
According to Variety, original series stars Miranda Cosgrove, Jerry Trainor and Nathan Kress are all set to be back in the new version. Jay Kogen and Ali Schouten have signed on to develop the new version of the series. Variety noted that the decision to have the series on Paramount Plus rather than Nickelodeon is not surprising because almost all major media companies are trying to build out their streaming offerings.
Earlier, MEAWW reported people want to know if Nickelodeon will also revive its broken relationship with famed producer and creator, Dan Schneider, who is the brain behind 'iCarly,' 'All That,' 'The Amanda Show' and 'Drake & Josh'. Schneider was cut-off from the channel in March 2018, following allegations of abusive behavior. At that time, neither Schneider nor the channel did not comment on the split. However, Deadline stated, as mentioned in a HuffPost report, that the decision was allegedly in the making due to “multiple complaints of abusive behavior” by members of Schneider’s staff, and “well-documented temper issues”. The report also alleged that he worked “under a cloud of suspicion” because of alleged relationships with young actors on his shows and allegedly he shared photos of actresses’ toes on social media.
What is Dan Schneider’s net worth?
According to Celebrity Net Worth, his net worth is $40 million. A 2018 Page Six report stated industry sources told them that he allegedly took a $7 million payout to leave. As mentioned in the HuffPost report, the network and Schneider mutually agreed not to extend a production deal with his company, Schneider’s Bakery. In a joint statement to HuffPost, they said, “Following many conversations together about next directions and future opportunities, Nickelodeon and our long-time creative partner Dan Schneider/Schneider’s Bakery have agreed to not extend the current deal. Since several Schneider’s Bakery projects are wrapping up, both sides agreed that this is a natural time for Nickelodeon and Schneider’s Bakery to pursue other opportunities and projects.”
It further read, “Dan and his Schneider’s Bakery team have created a string of lasting, groundbreaking hits over the years including ‘iCarly,’ ‘Drake & Josh,’ ’Victorious, ‘Kenan & Kel’ and the current number-one hit show on Nickelodeon, ‘Henry Danger’. We thank Dan and his Schneider’s Bakery producers, executives and social media team for their immeasurable contributions to Nickelodeon, and we wish them the best in their future endeavors. And Dan and Schneider’s Bakery are proud of the work they did together with Nickelodeon and will always remain big fans of the network.”
Schneider has been credited for launching the careers of stars like Arianna Grande, Jamie Lynn Spears, Amanda Bynes and Victoria Justice. As reported by Page Six, a source close to Schneider, at that time, denied he had been inappropriate with his younger stars, but did admit of his temper, “He could be an a**hole.” A source also claimed that Schneider had been the victim of false online smears, and that his exit had come amid a change of management at the network, a disagreement over the ending for ‘Game Shakers’ and a fight over studio space.
These remarks were made by individual organizations, MEAWW cannot confirm them independently and nor does it support these claims being made on the Internet.
