The Casagrandes (working title Los Casagrandes) is an upcoming American animated television series for Nickelodeon. A spin-off of The Loud House created by Chris Savino, it centers on the titular Casagrande family, whose amount is similar to that of the Louds.[3][1] The series is slated to premiere in October 2019.[4][5]

Premise[edit]

The Casagrandes is being developed to have Ronnie Anne and Bobby Santiago adjust to their new life in Great Lakes City where they now live with their big, loving and chaotic multi-generational Casagrande family. In the series, Ronnie Anne will make new friends, build stronger bonds with her relatives and explore the endless possibilities the city life has to offer. Bobby will help Grandpa Hector Casagrande run the family's corner store, and becomes familiar with the neighborhood's quirky characters.[3]
