New ‘That’s So Raven’ series starring Raven-Symoné announces official title and cast
The show, titled Raven's Home, is set to star Raven-Symoné and Anneliese van der Pol, who are set to reprise their That's So Raven roles as Raven Baxter and Chelsea Daniels according to E! News, and we couldn’t be more excited.
The spinoff was officially announced last fall, and according to E! News, the series finds the two friends as “divorced single mothers raising their families in the same chaotic household. Things get even crazier when one of Raven's kids starts showing signs they've inherited her ability to see glimpses on the future.”
And E! has also reported on some of the other major roles in the series revival: Issac Brown of Black-ish and Navia Robinson ofBeing Mary Jane will star as Raven's 11-year-old twins Booker and Nia.
Jason Maybaum of Superstore will play Chelsea's 9-year-old son Levi. Sky Katz from America's Got Talent will play Nia's best friend Tess.
Raven-Symoné is set to serve as executive producer on the series, alongside Scott Thomas and Jed Elinof.
“Raven’s brilliant style of fearless comedy was a driving force for Disney Channel’s success around the world. Her performance in That’s So Raven is timeless," says executive VP of original programming for Disney Channels Worldwide Adam Bonnett.
"We now have our eyes on the future with her, and we’re looking forward to telling more stories for a new generation with an adult Raven Baxter raising her young family."
The show is set to premiere later in 2017.
The original That's So Raven ran from 2003 to 2007 and has been recently racking in over one million viewers during its midnight re-runs.
