Nick Greenlights Season Five of Animated Hit "The Loud House" with 26-Episode Pick-up

BURBANK, Calif.-May 7, 2019-Eugenio Derbez (Overboard), Ken Jeong (Dr. Ken) and Melissa Joan Hart (Sabrina the Teenage Witch) have joined the cast of Nickelodeon's upcoming original animated series The Casagrandes, which tells the story of the Casagrandes, a big, loving and multi-generational family living together in the city. A companion to the Emmy Award-winning, The Loud House, the new 2D-animated series highlights the culture, humor, and love of growing up in a multi-generational Mexican-American family. The series is set to debut October 2019 on Nickelodeon.

"The Casagrandes highlights the humorous stories and moments of daily life that every kind of family can relate to, and we're thrilled to have Eugenio, Melissa and Ken on board to make these characters as relatable and funny as can be," said Ramsey Naito, EVP, Animation Production and Development, Nickelodeon. "Nickelodeon will also continue to dive deeper into the characters' lives in The Loud House, a proven hit with our audience, with a brand-new fifth season."

Said Derbez: "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."

Said Hart: "I will finally be a hero in my own home now that I get to be a part of The Casagrandes animated show. My boys have been huge fans of The Loud House and this is the first project of mine they are truly excited to see."

In The Casagrandes, Derbez lends his voice as Dr. Santiago, a physician living and working in Peru, who is Ronnie Anne and Bobby's father; Jeong voices Mr. Stanley Chang, a friendly and patient train conductor; and Hart voices Mrs. Becca Chang, a quirky, smart and funny zoologist and wife to Stanley.

Izabella Alvarez (Westworld) voices the title role of 11-year-old Ronnie Anne, joining Carlos PenaVega (Big Time Rush) who continues to lend his voice as Bobby. Additional new cast members include 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 Casagrandes, Ronnie Anne's new life promises to be an adventure, especially now that she lives under one roof with her grandparents, aunt, uncle, cousins, and a sass-talking parrot. As if that weren't enough excitement, she lives over the family-run Mercado, which is a gathering place for everyone in the neighborhood.

Derbez, Jeong and Hart will portray these new characters alongside: Carlos Alazraqui (The Fairly OddParents) as Carlos, Roxana Ortega (The League) as Frida, 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;" Sonia Manzano (Sesame Street) as Rosa, "Abuela;" and Sumalee Montano (Nashville) as Maria.
