Nickelodeon Teases The intertidal zonea Spongebob Squarepants crossover event that will extend across the channel. Originally, the one-hour special was supposed to premiere on November 25 of this year. But instead, the program will debut in 2023. It’s not uncommon for release dates to get mixed up in recent years. The pandemic has impacted multiple rollouts as it continues. Fans of SpongeBob can look forward to The intertidal zone in the first quarter of next year. The wait will probably be worth it to see this spicy take on the beloved sponge that lives in a pineapple under the sea.
“SpongeBob SquarePants Presents The Tide Zone” is a journey into an hour of television where two dimensions can become three and French divers can wear black ties. Watch a story of both comedy and caution, of satire and stupidity. Spirits can switch, bodies can shrink, and robots can take off in… “The Tidal Zone.”
Nick also explained, “SpongeBob SquarePants presents the intertidal zone, SpongeBob Universe’s first-ever crossover special, features bizarre moments, comedy and the familiar spirit of SpongeBob that has resonated with fans around the world for over 20 years. The original multidimensional adventure in Bikini Bottom will premiere Friday, November 25 on Nickelodeon and will air abroad next year.”
Nick is fully committed to SpongeBob in the future
“As we know from Nickelodeon’s long-standing success, the kids and family audience is incredibly loyal, and we see that on Paramount+ as well, ranking kids and families as one of the strongest genres on the service in terms of both engagement and subscriber acquisition,” said Chief Content Officer Brian Robbins earlier this year. “So if they stay for our shows and look for more of it, we’ll double down on giving them what they want by expanding the universe of the characters they love the most.”
“SpongeBob is at the center of our franchise strategy to expand the world of our characters and further expand our global reach,” Ramsey Naito, President of Nickelodeon Animation, said in a press release. “It’s a feature that wins on every platform as the richness of the characters and the comedy inherent in the stories continue to appeal to so many fans around the world.”
