Patrick Star Show Coming

Spongebob Squarepants' best friend Patrick Star will soon be getting his own spinoff show at Nickelodeon called The Patrick Star Show.

Patrick Star, the goofy pink sidekick of cultural icon Spongebob Squarepants, is getting his very own TV show called, The Patrick Star Show. The starfish who lives under a rock, voiced by Bill Fagerbakke, first appeared as the friendly yellow sponge's best friend in 1999 when Spongebob Squarepants appeared on Nickelodeon. Recently, another Spongebob prequel, Kamp Koral, was moved to CBS All Access, signaling the floodgates of Spongebob spin-offs have fully opened.

The towering force that is the Spongebob IP has dominated the pop culture landscape, between the show itself, the movies, the action-platformer video game(s), and even the memes. Any individual character probably could have held up their own spinoff. Likely the second most popular character in Bikini Bottom (although certainly not the smartest), Patrick is as well-known for his huggable design and dopey nature, helped greatly by Fagerbakke's instantly recognizable voice acting. His voice will be doing most of the heavy lifting in a newly announced spin-off.
