The Casagrandes is a new show on Nickelodeon. It’s a spin-off of the series The Loud House, which follows the Loud family. In The Casagrandes, Loud family friends Bobby and Ronnie Anne move away and have new adventures in a new city.

Izabella Alvarez plays Ronnie Anne. She told TIME for Kids that Ronnie is “a strong-willed girl. She’s tough too, but she has a sweet side. She's into gaming, pranking, and skating.”

Ronnie Anne’s family is Mexican-American. Many members of the cast are, too. The show explores different aspects of Mexican culture. For example, one episode is about the Mexican holiday Day of the Dead. “Growing up, I didn't have a Ronnie Anne to watch,” Izabella says. “So this show, it really means a lot to all of us. We’re really proud of it.”
