SpongeBob Squarepants Canceled: Spin-Off The Patrick Show To Replace It After Season 11
SpongeBob Squarepants the animated series is undoubtedly one of the super successful and longest running television series airing on Nickelodeon since the 90s. However, in a recent update, rumors swirl that the show will end after season 10 and 11.
The news come as a shock to the fans of the show. Apparently, they do not want to bid adieu yet to Spongebob, Mr. Krabs, Sandy Cheeks, Pear and Patrick Star at this stage. That is, after almost 17 year-run.
The news of SpongeBob Squarepants cancellation surfaced on social media earlier this month, causing chaos in fans. The rumors spread on several social media platforms immediately which now call for an official confirmation from Nickelodeon.
So far, the channel has not made any announcement on the same. Hence, it can perhaps be only a hoax. Nickelodeon stepped out later and tweeted on the official social media account, hinting that the show is still very much on. It added that it is not getting axed anytime sooner.
It was also speculated that the channel will allegedly cancel SpongeBob Squarepants season 10 and 11 but the news was later scrapped off. IMDB confirmed that premier episode of season 10 has already aired on October 15 titled as Whirlybrains.
The entire gang will continue to feature their respective roles till season 11. Nickelodeon is even promoting the renewal news with #SpongeBob Forever on social media to share their joy for its renewal.
In another update, rumors have it that Spongebob’s best friend, Patrick Star, will have his own show. The spin-off will likely get a title, The Patrick Show. However, the final word has yet to come from the channel.
SpongeBob Squarepants has continuously served as one of the highest rated series and most distributed properties of MTV Networks. However, there has been a declination in the viewership figures since last 2 seasons. This is probably could be the prime reason for cancellation rumors.
