    I wonder if Season 5 will be the series finale for icarly considering the fact that they have been airing for almost 5 years. I hope the finale will be exciting. This is what i hope the finale will be like: Carly and her brother move in with their parents, Sam and Freddie are BF and GF, and Gibby will be Gibby.
