There’s one person that stands out on “Broad City” — aside from the female leads, of course — and that’s Arturo Castro. We’ve come to adore the Guatemalan actor as Jaime on the Comedy Central show for the past several years. While “Broad City” is scheduled to end in 2019 at the end of its fifth season, we shouldn’t be too sad over that news because Deadline reports that we will soon be seeing a lot more of this hilarious guy.

Arturo Castro will star in his comedy sketch show called “Alternatino.”

The show, which has been picked up by Comedy Central, is about Castro’s experiences as a Latino millennial in the United States.

“This is literally what dreams coming true feels like,” Castro said on his Instagram. “I’m feeling so grateful, my chest may burst. To everyone that’s put their talent and effort on the line to get this show approved, this is your victory. Comedy Central has been my home since I first walked in their door six years ago.”

Castro said he is deeply appreciative to comedic actresses Ilana Glazer and Abbi Jacobson for giving him his big break on “Broad City.”

“And of course the ladies of Broad City for giving me my start, and inspiring me to create my own work,” Castro said on Instagram.

He also vows that his new show will be completely dedicated to the Latino experience.

“I promise to leave it all on the table with this show, and to bring you as much truth, heart, and laughter as I and my team of badass writers can muster,” Castro said.

He also added that, “being Latino is not just one thing, and especially in today’s world, representation is essential. I’ll work tirelessly to ensure a kid growing up anywhere can watch the screen and know he or she can do f*cking anything, no matter what they look like or how their English sounds. Let’s dooooo this!!”

“To God, my family, my squeaky, my friends and team: without you all I’d be doing quinceañeras as a member of a Menudo cover band.”

Ummm yeah right. This guy is just getting started.
