'SpongeBob' Spinoff 'The Patrick Star Show' in Works at Nickelodeon

Bill Fagerbakke will continue to voice Patrick


A “SpongeBob SquarePants” animated spinoff starring SpongeBob’s best friend Patrick is in the works at Nickelodeon.

Called “The Patrick Star Show,” the beloved pink starfish will be continued to be voiced by longtime “Spongebob” voice actor Bill Fagerbakke, a person with knowledge of the situation told TheWrap.

The project is not the only upcoming “SpongeBob” offshoot series, joining the previously announced prequel “Kamp Koral.” That show — which recently moved from Nickelodeon to CBS All Access, where it will debut next year as part of the rebranded service — will see a 10-year-old SpongeBob during his summer at the eponymous camp. In the series, SpongeBob and his pals spend the summer building underwater campfires, catching wild jellyfish and swimming in Lake Yuckymuck at the craziest camp in the kelp forest, Kamp Koral.

“The Patrick Star Show” joins other animated projects coming to Nickelodeon, including the “Real Pigeons Fight Crime” adaptation executive produced by James Corden and Ben Winston and “Middlemost Post” from John Trabbic III, another “Spongebob” vet.

Created by the late animator and marine biology teacher, Stephen Hillenburg, “SpongeBob” premiered on Nickelodeon in July 1999. The cartoon’s massive popularity has led to two feature films, 2004’s “The SpongeBob Squarepants Movie” and its 2015 sequel, as well as a Broadway musical.

Deadline was first to break the news.
