Apparently Paramount is still vigorously invested in Spongebob as studio has affirmed Spongebob Squarepants 4 is being developed for dramatic release. Notwithstanding Spongebob 4, the studio declared three spin-off movies coming to Paramount+ that will focus on different Bikini Bottom characters. The first of these arranged spin-off films is scheduled to be released in 2023. Brian Robbins, Chief Executive Officer of Paramount Pictures, released the accompanying statement with respect to the news:
“As we’ve known with Nickelodeon’s long-standing success, the kids and family crowd is extraordinarily faithful, and we see that on Paramount+ as well, with kids and family positioning as probably the strongest type based on the service in conditions of both commitment and subscriber acquisition. So as they stay for our shows and search for considerably a greater amount of them, we’re multiplying down on giving them what they need by extending the universes of the characters they love the best.”
Foremost is growing the Spongebob Squarepants franchise with a fourth dramatically released film and three spin-off films coming to Paramount+. Made in 1999 by the late Stephen Hillenburg, Spongebob Squarepants is one of Nickelodeon’s most successful franchises and has made a symbol the world over in a series that has run for 13 seasons with north of 200 episodes. The series follows the adventures of the title character, who lives in a pineapple under the sea, and his adventures alongside his friends in the city of Bikini Bottom.
The first of the arranged Paramount+ spin-off films is probable the arranged Sandy Cheeks film, which was declared in May 2021. Other possible characters for a spin-off could incorporate Mr. Krabbs and his girl Pearl, Squidward, or even a whole film about Patrick Star that is associated with his television series. Similar to many other Paramount brands like Star Trek, Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles, and Sonic the Hedgehog, it appears Spongebob Squarepants is currently important for Paramount’s plans to make a multimedia franchise that spans film, direct television, and streaming platforms.
