SpongeBob SquarePants has been one of the most discussed Nickelodeon TV series this October. Early this month, fans were left awestruck after an image announced that October 17 will be the last date of the show’s airing.
SpongeBob SquarePants is a nine-time Emmy nominee. It has been airing since 1999. However, rumors began suggesting that season 9 will be the last of the long-running TV show.
The cancellation rumor spread like wildfire on the internet. Fans started to pour their emotions on social media. Finally, a report from Snopes clarified the news.
According to Snopes, the image claiming the end of SpongeBob SquarePants was a hoax. Furthermore, the website approached a Nickelodeon representative, who said, “No, the show isn’t cancelled.”
