Spongebob’s partner-in-crime, Patrick, finally becomes a star with spinoff series
The series, called The Patrick Star Show, will take a deeper look at Patrick's life and his family.
Our favourite pink starfish, Patrick Star, is finally stepping into the spotlight – by having its own series.
Called The Patrick Star Show, the deal for the new Spongebob Squarepants spinoff is being finalised by Nickelodeon, reported Deadline.
Considering the successes Patrick’s best friend Spongebob had, expectations will likely be high for the pink starfish, voiced by Bill Fagerbakke, for this spinoff.
The series has already begun voiceover recordings and should be featuring 13 episodes.
The Patrick Star Show is said to be along the lines of popular sitcom The Larry Sanders Show or comedy podcast Comedy Bang! Bang! as the pink starfish becomes the James Corden of Bikini Bottom, hosting his own late-night show.
Fans can expect to learn more about the chaotic, muddle-headed starfish’s personal life, including his family. Unlike his enthusiastic and spirited sponge partner-in-crime, Patrick is more laid-back, spending most of his day watching television in his sand-made home.
New voices representing new characters will be introduced in the salt-filled undersea society. The original Spongebob Squarepants cast members are also likely to make frequent guest appearances.
Over the last two decades, Spongebob Squarepants, created by Stephen Hillenburg and produced by Nickelodeon, has released three feature films, hundreds of episodes. It is widely recognised as one of the best animated series for kids.
The latest film, The Spongebob Movie: Sponge on the Run, is set to be released in early 2021.
