I’m sure that many of you guys have heard about the That’s So Raven spinoff/sequel, well it is finally happening!
After announcing the project in October 2016, along with her exit from The View, Raven Symoné’s Raven’s Home has officially been ordered to series with production beginning in April in Los Angeles. The glorious show that will bring back so many childhood memories will premiere later in 2017.
Starring in the show is Raven Symoné and Anneliese van der Pol, who will reprise their That’s So Raven roles, Raven Baxter and Chelsea Daniels, Issac Brown of black-ish and Navia Robinson from Being Mary Jane will star as Raven’s 11-year-old twins Booker and Nia. Jason Maybaum (Superstore) will play Chelsea’s 9-year-old son Levi. Sky Katz (America’s Got Talent) will play Nia’s best friend Tess. The series finds the two friends as divorced single mothers raising their families in the same chaotic household. The family becomes even more disorganized when one of Raven’s kids start showing signs that they can also see into the future.
“There is only one Raven—and for over 25 years, she has blessed audiences around the world with the greatest gift of all—the pure, unadulterated joy of laugh-out-loud funny. After being a part of over 20 different Disney projects, we are thrilled to be bringing Raven’s Home to Disney Channel once again,” Gary Marsh, president and chief creative officer of Disney Channels Worldwide, said in a statement.
Raven-Symoné will be an executive producer with longtime write-producer partners Scott Thomas and Jed Elinof in the series. That’s So Raven made four seasons producing over 100 episodes in years 2003- 2007. The amazing show still reached over a million viewers during its midnight telecasts in 2016.
Many sequels/spinoffs have been made including Full House to Fuller House and Boy Meets World to Girl Meets World which recently reached 3 seasons on Disney Channel and these shows are thriving.
