Production

On April 13, 2012, Bloodlust Gaming announced he was working on a TV show based on Spongebob & Squidward. The show was originally called Squidbob Adventures and also included mild swearing. This idea was scrapped and was retooled in Squid & Sponge. The show was pitched to many networks before landing at TBS. TBS ordered 8 episodes for the first season. The pilot was produced from July 10 to December 30, 2013. The remaining 7 episodes were animated in 2014. The show premiered on August 12, 2014 to 1.36 million viewers and a 0.4 rating. The ratings and viewership dropped over the course of 7 episodes leading to TBS quietly cancelling the show.

On September 24, 2014, TBS announced that Squid & Sponge would move to FOX for it's second season, however on September 25, 2014, FOX announced that the would not air the series on their network due to difficulties concerning the budget. The series is now being shopped to other networks.

The series had not aired any new episodes since August of 2016 leading many to believe the series has been cancelled. On October 19, 2016, Matt Groening announced that he would no longer be a director and Bloodlust Gaming was fired due to behind the scenes issues. The show was announced as cancelled by many people who claim to be former workers on the show.

The title of Episode 44 was announced to be "Spongeland" and it aired on January 7, 2017 to 3.40 million viewers and a rating of 1.8.

On March 19, 2017, It was announced that Season 4 would end in 2018 and would be the final season of the show, ending the show after 60 episodes which aired in 5 years. Arzaan Mazhar said "A fifth season was in the cards but... I felt like it was time to end it. I wish we could be on TV forever. But... It just isn't that simple."

On March 20, 2017, The AMN announced that a 5-episode miniseries would air in 2019 to wrap up the show. "We will see Spongebob grow into a man. He will be married with a kid of his own but when Patrick gets kidnapped, Spongebob will once again go on an amazing journey."

On March 24, 2017, The AMN announced that the miniseries would consist of 10 episodes instead of the originally planned 5 episodes. Later that day, It was announced that the series finale would air on March 24, 2018.

Later that day, The AMN announced that the miniseries would be scrapped and the show would return for a fifth season consisting of 26 episodes & that the Season 4 finale would air in 2017.

The film will be called "Squid & Sponge: Last Blast" and will release a year after the series finishes.
