New animated comedy series follows adventures of a multigenerational Mexican-American family.
Nickelodeon has just announced their new original animated comedy series, The Casagrandes, will premiere Monday, October 14 at 1:30 p.m., before moving to its regular timeslot on Saturdays at 11:30 a.m., starting October 19. A spinoff of Nick’s popular animated series, The Loud House, The Casagrandes tells the story of 11-year-old Ronnie Anne who moves to the city with her mom and older brother to live with their big, loving family, the Casagrandes.
Starring Izabella Alvarez (Westworld) as 11-year-old Ronnie Annie, Carlos PenaVega (Big Time Rush) as her brother Bobby and Sumalee Montano (Nashville) as her mom Maria, the series showcases the culture, humor, and love that’s part of growing up in a multigenerational Mexican-American family. After moving in with their grandparents in Great Lakes City, Ronnie Anne adjusts to her new life living under one roof and over the family-run mercado (local market), which is a gathering place for everyone in the neighborhood.
In addition to Alvarez, PenaVega and Montano, the show stars Carlos Alazraqui (The Fairly OddParents) as Carlos, “Tio;” Roxana Ortega (The League) as Frida, “Tia;” Alexa PenaVega (Spy Kids) as Carlota; Jared Kozak (Born this Way) as CJ; Alex Cazares (The Boss Baby: Back in Business) as Carl; Ruben Garfias (East Los High) as Hector, “Abuelo;” and Sonia Manzano (Sesame Street) as Rosa, “Abuela.” Eugenio Derbez (Dora and the Lost City of Gold) lends his voice to Dr. Santiago, a physician living and working in Peru, who is Ronnie Anne and Bobby’s father.
Stars lending their voice to friends and neighbors in Ronnie Anne’s new apartment building include Ken Jeong (Dr. Ken) as Stanley Chang; Melissa Joan Hart (Sabrina the Teenage Witch) as Becca Chang; Leah Mei Gold (Legion) as 12-year-old Sid Chang, Ronnie Anne’s new friend; and Lexi Sexton as Adelaide Chang, Sid’s 6-year-old little sister.
In the first episode, “Going Overboard,” Ronnie Anne finds out her Tio Carlos was a famous skateboarder and she begs him to teach her some new moves. Then, in “Walk Don’t Run,” Ronnie Anne and Sid start a dog-walking business to save up for a new skateboard in a plan that quickly gets out of hand.
The Casagrandes premiere will encore at 3:30 p.m., 5:30 p.m. and 7:30 p.m. on Nickelodeon. The Casagrande family was first introduced in the The Loud House special, “The Loudest Mission: Relative Chaos,” which premiered in May 2017 and ranks as the highest-rated premiere for the series in Live+7 with both K2-11 (6.6/1.8M) and K6-11 (8.1/1.3M).
The Casagrandes is produced by Nickelodeon and executive produced by Michael Rubiner (The Loud House), with Karen Malach (The Loud House) serving as producer, Alan Foreman as supervising producer and Miguel Puga as supervising director. Whitney Wetta and Adeline Colangelo are story editors. Award-winning cartoonist Lalo Alcaraz (Coco) serves as consulting producer and cultural consultant.
