Nickelodeon also released the first teaser trailer for Patrick's solo series on Monday. In the 30-second spot, Patrick exclaims that he has found his "true porpoise," before the trailer dives into a montage of clips from the forthcoming series while showcasing the show's many fun-loving characters.

The Patrick Star Show is executive produced by Marc Ceccarelli, Vincent Waller and Jennie Monica, who all previously worked together on SpongeBob SquarePants, Variety reported.
