Feels like things are getting real.. again!

During a recent appearance at Gamer Comic Expo 2018 in Miami, Florida in November 2018 to promote his movie, Trico Tri Happy Halloween, Carson Rowland, who plays Cole Reyes in I Am Frankie, revealed in a interview with Pero... Let Me Tell You! that Nickelodeon are planning to make a third season of the network's hit serialized live-action show! Check out the interview below!:

It's important to note that this interview was recorded back in November 2018, and a lot has changed at Nickelodeon since then, which could mean that plans for a third season could have been shelved since. However, fingers crossed!

I Am Frankie tells the story of Frankie Gaines (Alex Hook), a cutting-edge, experimental android who looks like any other human girl, but harbours a big secret--she functions as a high-tech computer with internet access, extensive memory and more. I Am Frankie will air Monday–Friday at 5:30pm (AEST) on Nickelodeon AU/NZ.

In season two, which aired on Nick USA in September 2018, Frankie had finally acclimated to teenage life at Sepulveda High with the help of her best friend Dayton (Nicole Alyse Nelson) and their tight-knit group of loyal confidantes. However, things quickly became complicated when a new android arrives at the school, and the world finally learnt that androids exist, and the military company, WARPA (Weaponized Android Research Project Agency), returned with a new threat. Throughout the season, Frankie aimed to keep her true identity a secret, while protecting her family and friends and attempting to live a normal life.

I Am Frankie stars Amina Alzouma (“Rachel”), Uriel Baldesco (“Lucia”), Kristi Beckett (“Makayla”), Kyson Facer (“Andrew”), Sophia Forest (“Jenny”), Mohana Krishnan (“Tammy”), Tommi Rose (“Simone”), Carson Rowland (“Cole”), and Zachary S. Williams (“Zane”).

Filmed at Viacom International Studios (VIS) in Miami, I Am Frankie was originally produced as Yo Soy Franky by Nickelodeon Latin America in Colombia. The series is created by renowned Argentine writer Marcela Citterio. The English language version is produced by Paradiso Pictures and Nickelodeon Latin America.

Additionally, in the interview, Carson revealed that he'll be working on a brand-new Christmas movie by the same producer of Trico Tri Happy Halloween!
