Bill Fagerbakke reprises his role in new 2D animated family sitcom starring the famed starfish in his younger days, living at home, his wild whims and surreal imagination constantly disrupting his family; new series debuts this July on Nick.
Nickelodeon has just dropped a fun “sneak peek” of their all-new original animated series, The Patrick Star Show, the second spinoff of the hugely successful SpongeBob SquarePants TV series. Produced by Nickelodeon Animation Studio, The Patrick Star Show is a 2D family sitcom starring Patrick and the rest of his family as they are constantly disrupted by the famed starfish’s wild whims and surreal imagination. The 13-episode series debuts this July on Nickelodeon. The first series spinoff, Kamp Koral: SpongeBob’s Under Years, premiered earlier this year on Paramount+.
The Patrick Star Show 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. His little sister, Squidina, works behind the scenes to make sure Patrick’s show is always running smoothly, while his parents, Bunny and Cecil and his grandpa, GrandPat, each support Patrick in their own hilariously absurd ways. The Star family’s unpredictable adventures often inform, integrate, and sometimes even interfere with Patrick’s TV show, but one thing is for sure: his bizarre life always makes for great television!
Take a quick look at what’s in store come July!
