Nickelodeon Announces Fourth 'SpongeBob' Movie

Brian Robbins, President and CEO of Nickelodeon and Chief Content Officer has revealed that Nickelodeon is currently developing a fourth movie inspired by the network's beloved animated series, SpongeBob SquarePants!

As the film is still under wraps, not much is currently known about the film, including whether it'll be a theatrical movie or for a streaming service such as Paramount+. Nickelodeon's last SpongeBob Movie, Sponge on the Run was originally slated for theaters, however, ViacomCBS moved the film to Paramount+ due to the on-going COVID-19 pandemic.

It's also currently unknown whether the film is one of the previously announced character movies in development for streaming.

Nickelodeon is currently leaning heavily into streaming, including a new Avatar: The Last Airbender animated movie.

Nickelodeon is also in the midst of expanding the SpongeBob universe with spin-offs.

This would be the fourth SpongeBob film, after 2004’s The SpongeBob SquarePants Movie, 2015’s The SpongeBob Movie: Sponge Out of Water and the aforementioned The SpongeBob Movie: Sponge on the Run.
