Although the news is not yet posted to the press site, Nickelodeon has renewed its I Am Frankie TV show for a second season. An English-language adaption of the Colombian TV series, Yo Soy Franky, the live-action teen program premiered on Nick, on September 11, 2017 and aired as a daily series.
A scripted sci-fi dramedy, I Am Frankie stars Alex Hook as Frankie Gaines, an android that looks like a real teenaged girl. The Nickelodeon cast also includes Nicole Alyse Nelson, Mohana Krishnan, Uriel Baldesco, Kristi Beckett, Armani Barrett, Sophia Forest, Carson Rowland, Michael Laurino, Carrie Schroeder, Mark Jacobson, Joy Kigin, Kyson Facer, James D. Ballard, Tracy A. Johnson, Tay Lindsey, Todd Allen Durkin, and Rachael Thompson.
Frankie escapes from the EGG tech company and passes herself off as a high schooler, in order to avoid taking part in the company’s nefarious schemes. She soon strikes up a friendship with Dayton (Nelson), as she acclimates herself with new challenges including homework and crushes, while still keeping her origins a secret.
Deadline has confirmed the I Am Frankie season two renewal.
