spongebob squarepants prequel series Kamp Koral nickelodeon

One of the most beloved children’s animated shows of all time is getting a spinoff series as Nickelodeon announces Kamp Koral, a prequel to SpongeBob SquarePants. According to Deadline, Kamp Koral, which is a working title, centers around a 10-year-old SpongeBob during summer camp.

Kamp Koral is the first in a series of SpongeBob SquarePants spinoffs announced by Nickelodeon’s new president Brian Robbins. The CG-animated series is scheduled to begin production in June at Nickelodeon’s Burbank facilities.

In Kamp Koral you can expect to see a young SpongeBob building underwater campfires, catching wild jellyfish, and swimming in Lake Yuckymuck with his pals at Kamp Koral. Marc Ceccarelli and Vincent Waller of SpongeBob SquarePants have been tapped to co-executive produce the show.

News of the prequel arrives as a third SpongeBob SquarePants feature film, The SpongeBob Movie: It’s a Wonderful Sponge, is slated to release next year.
