If you like The Loud House, then you’ll love Nickelodeon‘s new animated series The Casagrandes

Filled with big adventures, laughs and more, the animated series showcases culture, humor and love that’s part of growing up in a multigenerational Mexican-American family.

“I’m truly so proud of the show because growing up, I didn’t have a multigenerational family,” says Izabella Alvarez, who plays Ronnie Anne on the show. “I couldn’t watch myself through a TV show so we’re all very proud to be apart of this.”

The best part is that you don’t have to be Latinx to appreciate the series, as every character can relate to family members from any ethnic background. Revolving around Alvarez’s character, the series tells the story of 11-year-old Ronnie Anne who moves to the city with her mom (Sumalee Montano) and older brother (Carlos PenaVega) to live with their big, loving family, the Casagrandes. 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.

“I hope it has a really big impact because there’s no show on air like this right now so I think everyone will really appreciate it,” she shares.
