New ‘That’s So Raven’ series, starring Raven-Symonè, coming to Disney Channel
The classic supernatural Disney channel series That's So Raven may have ended almost ten years ago—but that doesn't mean its story stopped.
Case in point: TV personality Raven-Symonè has announced the return of That's So Raven in the form of a sequel. Symonè, like in the original show, will star. She is slated to also produce it, according to Variety.

To work on the family sitcom, Symonè is departing from talk show The View, where she's currently a host. That's So Raven (part two) will see main character Raven Baxter all grown up as a divorced mother of two. She hasn't lost her ability to see into the future though—in fact, one of her preteen kids has inherited the supernatural ability.
Symonè is relocating from New York City to Los Angeles for the sitcom's production, which is still in its early casting stages. It's being developed by writing and producing partners Scott Thomas and Jed Elinoff.
“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 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.
