ViacomCBS has confirmed plans to mobilize two key SpongeBob SquarePants properties for the March 4 U.S. launch of revamped streaming service Paramount+.
The SpongeBob Movie: Sponge on the Run, initially slated to be a 2020 theatrical title before the onset of Covid-19, will stream on Paramount+, as CBS Access will be known after the forthcoming rebrand. The film will also arrive March 4 as a premium video on demand release priced as a $20 rental.
Prequel series Kamp Koral: SpongeBob’s Under Years, the first spinoff of the 22-year-old Nickelodeon original. (Check above to watch the new trailer for the film, which includes several shoutouts for the prequel and features live-action cameos by Keanu Reeves, Danny Trejo and Snoop Dogg.)
Kamp Koral will have its first six episodes on Paramount+ when it launches March 4. The rest of the 13-episode season will appear “at later dates to be announced,” the company said. After its streaming run, the show will air on Nickelodeon.
