Nickelodeon has announced new animated series “The Casagrandes,” which premieres on Monday, October 14 at 1:30 p.m. ET. Spun-off from “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.
Following its premiere, the series moves to its regular times period on Saturdays at 11:30 a.m. ET beginning Saturday, Oct. 19, on Nickelodeon.
The logline: 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.
Alvarez, PenaVega and Montano bring these characters to life, alongside: 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.” Additionally, Eugenio Derbez (“Dora and the Lost City of Gold” gives voice to Dr. Santiago, a physician living and working in Peru, who is Ronnie Anne and Bobby’s father.
