Nickelodeon has also confirmed that Kamp Koral is bringing back the main voice cast, including Tom Kenny (SpongeBob), Bill Fagerbakke (Patrick), Rodger Bumpass (Squidward), Clancy Brown (Mr. Krabs), Carolyn Lawrence (Sandy), and Doug Lawrence (Plankton). The characters Mrs. Puff (Mary Jo Catlett), Karen (Jill Talley), and Pearl (Lori Alan) are also coming back.

Kamp Koral will also feature new characters voiced by Carlos Alazraqui (Rocko's Modern Life, Spyro) and Kate Higgins (Naruto, Sonic).

In the show, SpongeBob and friends will do all sorts of weird and wild things like "building underwater campfires, catching wild jellyfish, and swimming in Lake Yuckymuck at the craziest camp in the kelp forest, Kamp Koral."

SpongeBob series producers Marc Ceccarelli and Vincent Waller are Kamp Koral's co-executive producers.

In addition to Kamp Koral, another SpongeBob spin-off focused on Squidward and his musical talents is reportedly coming to Netflix.
