LatinoBuzz: EXCLUSIVE! New East Los High Cast Announced!

Summer was created for one purpose only to a legion of fanatics: “East Los High.” Yes! Our homies from East Los Angeles, Cali’ are back this summer!
Hulu has renewed the groundbreaking teen drama, “East Los High” for a third season.

Since its debut in 2013, the English language ELH has
introduced its audience of loyal followers – the #‎ELHaddicts (don’t forget the hashtag!) – to some of the freshest faces in young Latino talent and
those fans quickly created allegiances to their favorite characters. That loyalty was fostered by Hulu’s commitment to its audience and community.

with that said The Bomb Squad has let the boys into the club this season. Gilbert Saldivar joins the team as Santi, a ladies man who like any self-respecting guy, only signs up for its girls–to-boy ratio. Byron Martinez and Oskar Rodriguez will play childhood friends, Luis and Omar, who get taken
under the wing of Jacob at the taqueria (I’m getting hungry writing this) and put the dance skills they picked up on the streets to the test
when they join the squad.

Another familiar face getting in on the action is Carlito Olivero, a finalist from The X-Factor, playing Eddie, a young man
dedicated to caring for his diabetic mother. Boys joining the Bomb Squad may or may not be a good idea but you will have to find out this summer.
