Ricardo Hurtado, Breanna Yde & Lance Lim Lead Nickelodeon's 'School Of Rock'

Meet the new cast of Nickelodeon’s School of Rock!

Ricardo Hurtado, Lance Lim, Aidan Miner, Jade Pettyjohn and Breanna Yde have all joined Tony Cavalero in the upcoming series.

Inspired by the film of the same name, Tony will play Dewey, who becomes the most unique and well-liked teacher the students have ever had.

Ricardo stars as Freddy, the new kid who brings a fresh and rebellious perspective to the school. He is effortlessly cool, recognizes the opportunity in building the band with Dewey and challenges the class to take risks in the name of having fun.

Lance will play Zack, (a reserved child of overbearing parents who comes out of his shell, as the band’s electric guitarist), while Aiden is Lawrence (the quirky, tech kid who will be the band’s keyboardist).

Jade is Summer (the over-achiever and not at all satisfied with playing tambourine in the band) and Breanna is Tomika (the tomboy of the bunch who is the bass player for the band).

School of Rock is expected to premiere later this year.
