Kamp Koral: SpongeBob spinoff series moves to CBS All Access
It has already been over a year since Nickelodeon had given a series order to their first SpongeBob SquarePants spinoff series titled Kamp Koral, which will center around the 10 year-old version of the iconic character. Originally expected to make its debut on Nickelodeon, Deadline brings word that the upcoming CG-animated series has now been moved to premiere on the soon-to-be-rebranded CBS All Access in 2021. This announcement comes after Paramount Animation had teamed up with the streamer for the digital U.S. release of The SpongeBob Movie: Sponge on the Run.
In Kamp Koral, 10-year-old SpongeBob and his pals spend the summer building underwater campfires, catching wild jellyfish, and swimming in Lake Yuckymuck at the craziest camp in the kelp forest, Kamp Koral. It will also feature the original series’ main voice cast with Marc Ceccarelli and Vincent Waller (SpongeBob SquarePants) set as co-executive producers on the series.
The 13-episode animated spinoff will also become a part of the Nickelodeon shows which will soon be available on CBS All Access. This includes Avatar: Last Airbender, Legend of Korra, Rugrats, Danny Phantom, Sam & Cat and all prior seasons of SpongeBob SquarePants.
Since its launch July 17, 1999, SpongeBob SquarePants has reigned as the number-one kids’ animated series on TV for the last 17 years, while generating a universe of beloved characters, pop culture catchphrases, and memes, theatrical releases, consumer products, a Tony award-winning Broadway musical and a global fan base.
SpongeBob SquarePants is the most widely distributed property in Viacom International Media Networks history, seen in more than 208 countries and territories, translated in 55+ languages, and averaging more than 100 million total viewers every quarter. SpongeBob SquarePants is created by Stephen Hillenburg and produced by Nickelodeon in Burbank, Calif. The character-driven cartoon chronicles the nautical and sometimes nonsensical adventures of SpongeBob, an incurable optimist and an earnest sea sponge, and his undersea friends.
