Patrick Star is making his return to Bikini Bottom. After two decades as SpongeBob SquarePants’ sidekick, Patrick is getting his very own television show. Yep, the beloved pink starfish will be getting the spotlight this summer, and on May 31, Nickelodeon gave fans a sneak peak at what they can expect. Nickelodeon's Patrick Star Show trailer will have you so hype.
Nickelodeon first announced the 13-episode series starring Patrick in March and fans of the animated show were over the moon. Bill Fagerbakke (who voiced Patrick in the original series) will return to voice Patrick once again, and will take SpongeBob fans back in time. The series will serve as the prequel to the original show, and will show a young Patrick living at home with his family where he hosts his own variety show for the neighborhood.
In the first trailer, Patrick seems to have adopted his usual silly behaviors. The 30-second clip featured lots of giggles, mispronounced words, and cameos from the OG SpongeBob cast. Don’t worry, Patrick may be the star, but Squidward, Sandy, Mr. Krabs, and SpongeBob are all still part of the cast.

Oh, and there will be plenty of nostalgic moments sprinkled throughout. Not only are SpongeBob and Squidward making their return, but they will also be voice by their original narrators. The spinoff will feature the voices of Tom Kenny (SpongeBob SquarePants), Rodger Bumpass (Squidward Tentacles), Carolyn Lawrence (Sandy Cheeks), Clancy Brown (Mr. Krabs), and Mr. Lawrence (Plankton).
