The fourteenth season of the American animated television series SpongeBob SquarePants, created by former marine biologist and animator Stephen Hillenburg, was announced on March 24, 2022 during Nickelodeon's upfront of the same year.[1][2] It has been confirmed that this season will consist of 26 half-hour episodes. This season premiered on November 2, 2023 with "Single-Celled Defense," and so far more episodes are to be aired.

Production[]

This season is known to have been in production as early as November 2022.[3] At that time, things for the 25th anniversary and "Squidiot Box" were being developed.

On August 3, 2023, Leo Laifa confirmed that they have officially joined the series' crew as a storyboard artist on that day, likely providing work on this season.[4]

On November 28, 2023, Nick Lauer confirmed that he had returned to the series to help out with storyboards.[5]

On December 7, 2023, Kamp Koral supervising director Brandon Warren posted a video on Instagram featuring various sketches of SpongeBob characters, saying he had "been brushing up and learning the intricacies of drawing [them] correctly."[6] Considering the former show has since concluded production,[7] and Warren never officially stated that he had left the show or Nickelodeon Animation Studio, it is possible that he transitioned on work from the spin-off to the main series.
