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.

Nickelodeon has also greenlit a fifth season (26 episodes) of The Loud House, where big changes are on the horizon. In season five, Lincoln and his friends’ graduate elementary school and face new challenges and adventures as they tackle the trials and tribulations of middle school, each sister moves up a grade and Lori decides if she’s ready to leave home for college. The new season will also showcase holiday themed episodes, introduce new characters, locations and more.

Season four of The Loud House kicks-off Monday, May 27, at 1:00 p.m. (ET/PT) with a special half-hour episode dedicated to the Casagrande family.

When it looks like another couple might get it first, the girls resort to sabotage to dissuade them. Season four premieres continue Monday, June 10, through Thurs., June 13, at 11:00 a.m. (ET/PT) and Monday, June 17, through Thurs., June 20, at 11:00 a.m. (ET/PT) on Nickelodeon.

Nike Kyrie 5 X SpongeBob SquarePants Collaboration Rumored to be on the Way

Continuing the trend of strange but awesome shoe collaborations, Nike may be releasing a crossover with a beloved cartoon character under the sea, SpongeBob SquarePants!

Earlier this year, the shoe model’s namesake, Boston Celtics Point Guard Kyrie Irving told Complex about several TV-themed collabs he had in the works, including a pair linked to SpongeBob SquarePants. That's seemingly been confirmed with this first look at a unique make-up that pulls its palette directly from the cartoon's lead character.

A first-look of the bold yellow pair was shared earlier today via @leo_zd_37 on Instagram, and by the looks of it, it takes clear inspiration from the show’s lead character and his iconic look.

The upcoming Kyrie 5 colorway, dubbed the KYRIE 5 X SpongeBob, features a full yellow-bodied upper with golden dot “spongey” accents decorated throughout to mimic SpongeBob’s porous body. The gum soles feature a red, white and brown scheme that mimics the colors of SpongeBob’s iconic tie, shirt and squarepants combo. Finishing the design is Kyrie’s insignia on the tongue tab, a wavy, sponge style Nike swoosh, and the Nickelodeon logo atop the Flytrap midfoot wrap, all of which suggests that this is an official project.

NBA star Irving and Nike recently released a Kyrie 5 inspired by his favorite show Friends. It's also been reported that Irving is a huge fan of SpongeBob and even quotes some episodes word-for-word in his teams' training rooms. Irving is also slated to be working on a Family Guy edition of Nike Kyrie 5's.

In addition to TV series, Irving also recently released “Mamba Mentality” (for Mamba Day 2019) and “Have a Nike Day” editions of his signature Nike Kyrie 5 silhouette.

As of now, no official photos or release date has been shared for the upcoming SpongeBob SquarePants-inspired Nike Kyrie 5, while the image above isn't even guaranteed to be the final version of the shoe, but Irving initially implied that there would be a Patrick Star colorway, so this pair may be part of a multi-shoe pack in the works. Keep an eye out for updates here as soon as more about this collaboration is announced.

This year marks the 20th anniversary of SpongeBob SquarePants, and Nickelodeon are commemorating 20 years of SpongeBob SquarePants with "Best Year Ever", a year-long global celebration of one of the most iconic TV series and characters ever created. The “Best Year Ever” includes with the premiere of “SpongeBob’s Big Birthday Blowout,” an original mixed live-action and animated special, and leads up to the Paramount Pictures and Nickelodeon Movies theatrical, The SpongeBob Movie: It's a Wonderful Sponge, coming summer 2020.

It’s SpongeBob’s birthday in “SpongeBob’s Big Birthday Blowout,” which features for the first time the celebrated voice talent behind SpongeBob, Patrick, Mr. Krabs, Sandy, Squidward and Plankton playing live-action doppelgänger versions of the animated characters they voice. In the one-hour special, Patrick and SpongeBob journey to the surface world, where they come across a few familiar characters during lunchtime rush at The Trusty Slab restaurant. Meanwhile, the Bikini Bottom residents set up a surprise party for SpongeBob. The special, premiering Friday, July 12, at 7:00 p.m. (ET/PT) on Nickelodeon USA, also features special guest stars, including David Hasselhoff (Baywatch), Jack Griffo (The Thundermans), Daniella Perkins (Knight Squad), and Kel Mitchell (All That, Game Shakers).

SpongeBob launched July 17, 1999, and has reigned as the number-one kids’ animated series on TV for the last 17 years, generating a universe of beloved characters, pop culture catchphrases and memes, theatrical releases, consumer products, a Tony award-winning Broadway musical and a global fan base.

Nickelodeon also recently revealed plans for a series of SpongeBob SquarePants spin-offs.

“That’s our Marvel Universe,” Nickelodeon president Brian Robbins said in February. “You have this amazing show that’s run for almost twenty years.”

Robbins pledged that the network would still continue to make our favorite yellow sponge. They’re simply looking to expand on the idea.

As far as spinoff options go, Robbins states they may be looking to “tell an original story about SpongeBob and Patrick, or maybe tell a Sandy Cheeks stand-alone story, or can Plankton have his own? I think the fans are clamoring for it.”

Hush! Watch Lori Beth Denberg Back on 'All That' as Loud Librarian | Sneak Peek

Hush! Watch Lori Beth Denberg back on All That as Loud Librarian

Put your headphones on, because libraries are getting loud - again!

Earlier this month, Nickelodeon revealed that original All That cast members Kel Mitchell, Josh Server, and Lori Beth Denberg are guest-starring in the series premiere of Nickelodeon’s new version. Since then, the Jonas Brothers were announced as musical guests and part of a Good Burger sketch featuring Mitchell. Well, he’s not the only one returning to his old characters, as EW has unveiled the first look at Denberg reviving her Loud Librarian character in the fantastic clip below!

Speaking to EW on the set of All That, Denberg expressed her surprise at being asked to do some of her classic sketches, assuming she was back solely to pass the torch. “It does get a lot of aggression out, but it’s really hard,” she said of Loud Librarian. “The Loud Librarian is all about being really loud and energetic and working tons of props, big heavy props and I’m crashing into things. I forgot how physically taxing it was, and that’s without even the yelling on top of it. I think I said after the first time we did a rehearsal, ‘I forgot how sweaty this was.'”

Watch the clip below!

All That premieres June 15 at 8:30 p.m. ET/PT on Nickelodeon USA!
