SpongeBob spin-off The Patrick Star Show to land with 13 episodes this summer

Nickelodeon has lifted the lid on the long-awaited SpongeBob SquarePants spin-off to be centered on the series’ popular character, Patrick, confirming that The Patrick Star Show will be landed with 13 initial episodes this summer.

Patrick Star – SpongeBob’s ever loyal best friend – will be the focus of the series that will introduce viewers to an extended Star family that includes Patrick’s younger sister and executive producer Squidina, Patrick’s parents Cecil and Bunny, and GrandPat, Patrick’s grandfather and the brains of the family.

The show will also witness the return of fan-favourite, Squidward as it introduces a wider clan, including Squidward’s grandmother while established characters including SpongeBob, Squidward, Sandy, MR Krabs, and Plankton will all be making special guest appearances throughout the series.

“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 Ramsey Naito, president, Nickelodeon Animation. “This second original spin-off allows us to expand our reach, tell new stories and connect with our audience around the world who continue to love these characters.”

The Patrick Star Show is the second expansion of the SpongeBob universe. The first is Kamp Koral: SpongeBob’s Under Years (a CG-animated prequel about the main character’s adventures at summer camp as a young kid), which premieres on Paramount+.
