Cast and characters


  • Bernardo Velasco as Renaldo, a horror and gore enthusiast who assembles his friends to form Los Espookys. He is kind and optimistic, but naïve and incompetent with finances. He also appears to be asexual.
  • Julio Torres as Andrés Valdez, Renaldo's best friend since childhood and member of Los Espookys, and the adopted heir to a chocolate empire. While trying to put up with his unapproachable parents and the future husband they chose for him, he is also haunted by a mysterious demon, and longs to unlock the secrets of his past.
  • Cassandra Ciangherotti as Úrsula, a friend of Renaldo and sister to Tati, and a member of Los Espookys. She is smart, resourceful and more down-to-earth than the other members, but struggles with her job as a dental hygienist due to the mean behavior of her boss.
  • Ana Fabrega as Tati, Úrsula's dimwitted sister and a member of Los Espookys. She is constantly switching between strange jobs to try to make a living and is willing to put herself into any situation the other Espookys need her in. She has a boyfriend whom she has only met online, but later marries Andrés's gay ex-boyfriend, oblivious to the fact it is not a love marriage.
  • Fred Armisen as Tico, Renaldo's uncle and a trusted and dedicated employee of a valet parking company. He is very supportive of Renaldo's efforts and happy with his job, but struggles with his daughter's attitude problems and his own tendency to be too selfless. During the second season, Tico and his daughter move in with Renaldo after valet parking becomes obsolete due to self-parking cars, and he struggles to find a new direction, briefly joining Los Espookys.


  • José Pablo Minor as Juan Carlos, Andrés' vain boyfriend, who later becomes Tati's husband in a lavender marriage. He comes from a wealthy family that runs a successful cookie empire.
  • Spike Einbinder as the Water Spirit, a mystical aquatic entity linked to Andrés' soul and lives inside of him. In season 2, she "quits" and enters the real world, getting a job as an assistant to Melanie Gibbons.
  • River L. Ramirez as Sonia, Tico's bratty, mean-spirited, dependent daughter.
  • Greta Titelman as US Ambassador Melanie Gibbons, who meets Los Espookys during one of their jobs, and later hires them for another. In season 2, a key subplot involves her trying to become US ambassador in Miami, unaware that it is part of the United States.
  • Carmen Gloria Bresky as Mayor Teresa Lobos, a client of Los Espookys in season 1 who starts a presidential campaign in the second season.
  • Adela Calderón as Renaldo's mother, who is constantly trying to find him a girlfriend.
  • Giannina Fruttero as Beatriz, Renaldo's sister
  • Carol Kane as Bianca Nova (season 1), an aging and forgotten American film director who befriends Tico.
  • Martine Gutierrez as Karina Salgado (season 2), a beauty queen who was Miss Puerto Rico, and brutally died immediately after being crowned Nuestra Belleza Latina; in the second season, her ghost starts haunting Renaldo.

  • Andrea Villalobos as Mónica Martinez (season 2), a cousin of Renaldo who starts working for Los Espookys after losing her previous job
