3. The Casagrandes (2019)
‘The Casagrandes’ is an upcoming animated show that is set to air on Nickelodeon. Created by Chris Savino, the show is intended to be a spin-off of ‘The Loud House’. ‘The Casagrandes’ will focus on the titular family, who are as big as the Loud family. In case you missed out on the original show, ‘The Loud House’ revolves around the chaotic life of Lincoln Loud, the middle child in a family with 11 children. The show often sees Lincoln breaking the fourth wall to explain the chaotic situation in his home while attempting to explain the complicated sibling relationships. Sometimes, Lincoln also tries to come up with ways to make his life at home slightly better.
The spin-off will tell the story of Ronnie Anne and Bobby Santiago. They have to adjust to their new life in the Great Lakes where they have to live with their large, loving and chaotic multi-generational Casagrande family. In the upcoming series, Ronnie Anne is likely to make new friends and strengthen the bonds with her relatives while exploring all of the possibilities that city life has to offer. Bobby, on the other hand, will help his grandfather, Hector, run the family’s corner store, which makes him familiar with all the quirky characters in his neighborhood. Amidst all this, Eugenio Derbez comes in as Dr. Arturo Santiago, Bobby and Ronnie’s father, who is divorced from their mother and is in Peru as part of the Physicians With Mission assignment.
This is what Eugenio said about the role: “When I was approached to be part of ‘The Casagrandes’, it was an easy yes. It’s culturally specific but will appeal to any kid. It’s outrageous and funny and has heart. This is what a Latinx kid show should look like, big fun and mainstream with some Latin spice. I’m grateful to Nickelodeon for asking me to be a part of it.”
