Hailing from original series’ creators Chris Keyserand Amy Lippman, the immigration-themed update centers on the five Acosta children as they navigate daily life struggles to survive as a family unit after their parents are suddenly deported back to Mexico.
In addition to Larracuente, the series also stars Emily Tosta, Niko Guardadoand Elle Paris Legaspi.
Each character in the reboot is intentionally similar to their character in the original, which was intentional.
“What’s the same is that we took the characters of the original and translated them to this. If you knew the original you’ll come to it and you’ll feel like ‘I kind of know who these kids are.’ We put them in a different situation. That said, there are easter eggs .”
She teased that this season “all the kids have love interests and some of them will have echoes to the original.”
“This show you have an opportunity to look at these kids as kids who are growing up and learning things about themselves but in an extraordinary situation. I wish it was more extraordinary.”
