SPONGEBOB SQUAREPANTS Squidward Spinoff Reportedly In The Works For Netflix

Per the new deal between Viacom and Netflix, a SpongeBob Squarepants spinoff is in the works for the popular streaming service with the character of Squidward at its centre.

Nickelodeon's SpongeBob SquarePants cartoon has been kicking around for twenty years. According to a new report by the New York Times, a SpongeBob Squarepants spinoff is in the works.

The spinoff will reportedly focus on the character of Squidward Tentacles and has come about on account of the recently announced deal between Viacom and Netflix. In fact, the Squidward spinoff is in the works for the popular streaming service.

No other details have been divulged just yet. It's unknown whether Rodger Bumpass will reprise the role but is assumed given that the voice actor has done so for the character for many a feature film, video game, and the like. 

Brian Robbins, the President of Nickelodeon, had this to say on their partnership with Netflix:

Nickelodeon’s next step forward is to keep expanding beyond linear platforms, and our broader content partnership with Netflix is a key path toward that goal. The Nickelodeon Animation Studio is home to the world-class artists and storytellers behind some of the most iconic characters and shows ever made, and our head of Animation, Ramsey Naito, has been building on that legacy over the past year by ramping up development and production exponentially. The ideas and work at our Studio are flowing, and we can’t wait to work with Melissa and the Netflix team on a premium slate of original animated content for kids and families around the world.
