The original series, billed as the first English-language sitcom to have an all Latino cast and creative team, revolved around the Garcia family, narrated by Larry, the adult version of one of the family’s sons. Larry recounts his life alongside George, Carlos, and Lorena (his two brothers and twin sister, respectively), and the way they deal with everyday problems such as school, work, growing up, and all living in one house in San Antonio, Texas.

The Brothers Garcia aired for four seasons on Nickelodeon, from 2000 to 2004.

The new version finds the Garcia children as adults and gathering with their parents for a three-month summer vacation in a fancy beach house. All six core cast members — Ada Maris, Carlos Lacamara, Alvin Alvarez, Jeffrey Licon, Bobby Gonzalez, Vaneza Pitynski — are set to reprise their roles.

The sequel series was first reported by Deadline’s sister pub Variety.
