It’s official folks, Patrick Star is getting his own show!
Nickelodeon has officially announced the news that Patrick, the beloved starfish from SpongeBob SquarePants, is finally getting his time in the spotlight in the new and imaginatively named The Patrick Star Show.
“Nickelodeon is diving deeper into Bikini Bottom to give fans a look at our lovable young adult Patrick Star and his entire family with a sitcom only he could imagine up,” said president of Nickelodeon Animations, Ramsey Naito.
“This second original spinoff allows us to expand our reach, tell new stories and connect with our audience around the world who continue to love these characters.”
In 2019, it was announced Nickelodeon would be releasing a SpongeBob spinoff named Kamp Koral: SpongeBob’s Under Years, a prequel based on a 10-year-old SpongeBob and his friends during a summer at a sleep-away camp.
The Patrick Star Show is set to air this summer (in the United States) on Nickelodeon and will consist of 13 episodes. As with Kamp Koral, this will also be based on a young Patrick who creates his own makeshift TV show while living with his family.
