The June 3rd episodes have already aired in Israel. Will update this when more info comes, if there are any more new episodes this June that is.
EDIT: Spot Returns will be the first Season 11 episode.
According to a post from the Nick Animation podcast blog, the next Nick Podcast episode will feature the current showrunners/supervising producers of SpongeBob, Vincent Waller & Marc Ceccarelli. This makes me happy, because they're acknowledging that they're current people in charge of the show. Hopefully this will reminds the modern SpongeBob haters that Paul Tibbitt is no longer in charge anymore and the unnecessary hating on him will stop.
Are you excited about this? What do you think Vince and Marc will talk about in Episode 39 of the Nick Animation podcast?
