Nickelodeon has ordered a second season (26 episodes) of its original animated series, The Patrick Star Show, which follows a younger Patrick Star living at home with his family, where he hosts his own variety show for the neighborhood from his television-turned-bedroom. Produced by Nickelodeon Animation, new episodes of The Patrick Star Show season one will continue to premiere on Nickelodeon.
“This next season of The Patrick Star Show will embark upon even more imaginative, colorful and hilarious adventures, diving deeper into the Star family’s daily life and escapades,” said Claudia Spinelli, Senior Vice President, Animation for Big Kids. “For over 20 years, the beloved Patrick Star has provided humor to fans around the world, and we can’t wait to see what he does next.”
The second spinoff of the number-one animated series SpongeBob SquarePants tells brand-new stories about one of the most beloved best friends in TV history that is set to be the wildest ride yet. The family sitcom stars Patrick and the rest of his family as they are constantly disrupted by Patrick’s wild whims and surreal imagination.
The Patrick Star Show stars Bill Fagerbakke (Patrick Star), Tom Wilson (Cecil Star), Cree Summer (Bunny Star), Jill Talley (Squidina Star) and Dana Snyder (GrandPat), who will continue to bring these characters to life. Cast members from the original SpongeBob series will continue to populate Patrick’s world.
Marc Ceccarelli (SpongeBob SquarePants) and Vincent Waller (SpongeBob SquarePants) are executive producers of the series. The Patrick Star Show is developed for television by Spinelli, with production overseen by Kelley Gardner, Vice President, Current Series Animation, Nickelodeon. Jennie Monica is Vice President of Production, Nickelodeon.
The Patrick Star Show renewal is part of Nickelodeon’s strategy to be the home of the biggest franchises kids and families love, and it expands Nickelodeon’s growing portfolio of influential properties that already includes SpongeBob SquarePants, Kamp Koral: SpongeBob’s Under Years, PAW Patrol, Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles, Blue’s Clues & You!, Star Trek: Prodigy, The Smurfs partnership, and the Transformers: EarthSpark and Monster High co-productions.
Since its launch July 17, 1999, SpongeBob SquarePants has reigned as the most-watched kids’ animated series for 20 consecutive years, while generating a universe of beloved characters, pop culture catchphrases and memes, theatrical releases, consumer products, a Tony Award®-winning Broadway musical and a global fan base.
