Everyone's favorite sponge who lives in a pineapple under the sea is getting new life in an upcoming prequel, as reported by Deadline. The series, which has been granted a 13-episode order, is said to have a working title of “Kamp Koral."

Officially announced earlier this year by Nickelodeon, the spinoff, which coincides with the 20 year anniversary of “SpongeBob SquarePants”, will be the first for the beloved character. Slated to begin production in June, the show will differ from the original as it is intended to be computer generated instead of a classic 2D.

Debuting in 1999, “SpongeBob SquarePants” has developed a devoted fanbase all over the world. Created by Stephen Hillenburg, the original show chronicled the wacky adventures of SpongeBob, the earnest protagonist, and his group of lovable friends.

As pointed out by The A.V. Club, SquarePants does not meet Sandy Cheeks until the original show's storyline and it has been implied that he does not know Squidward particularly well until beginning to work at the Krusty Krab restaurant. Patrick, on the other hand, has a good chance of making an appearance at the new camp.

The storyline is planned to introduce the audience to 10-year-old SpongeBob as he ventures to sleepaway camp where he and his motley crew of BFFs will spend the summer building campfires and catching jellyfish. The introduction of age is an unusual turn for the character as the exact number was never disclosed on the original series.

Ramsey Naito, Nickelodeon’s EVP Animation Production and Development, said while discussing the upcoming television show, “‘SpongeBob’ has an incredible universe to expand upon and the greenlight for ‘Kamp Koral’ is a testament to the strength and longevity of these characters known and loved by generations of fans around the world.”

Aside from “Kamp Koral” and the Tony award-winning Broadway musical, a third feature film is also scheduled to be released in 2020 from Paramount Animation. The title, as of now, is said to be “The SpongeBob Movie: It’s a Wonderful Sponge.”
