After leaving “The View” behind for her Disney Channel roots, the cable TV network ordered a “That’s So Raven” spin-off to series, titled, “Raven’s Home” and of course starring Raven-Symoné.
The comedy will follow Raven (Raven-Symoné) and Chelsea (Anneliese van der Pol reprising her role), who are now divorced single mothers raising their two separate families in one chaotic but fun household full of friends. When one of Raven’s kids begins to show signs that they have inherited her trait of catching glimpses of the future, the already hectic household gets turned upside down, keeping even Raven on her toes.
Issac Brown (“Black-ish”) and Navia Robinson (“Being Mary Jane”) play Raven’s 11-year-old twins, Booker and Nia, respectively, and Jason Maybaum (“Superstore”) plays Chelsea’s 9-year-old son, Levi.
Sky Katz (“America’s Got Talent”) plays Nia’s best friend, Tess.
President and CEO at Disney Channels Worldwide, Gary Marsh said in a previous statement: “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 home to Disney Channel once again.”
“That’s So Raven” originally aired on the Disney Channel from 2003-2007. Raven-Symoné won two Nickelodeon Kids’ Choice Awards for her role. The series also was nominated for Best Children’s Program at the Primetime Emmys. At the time of its premiere, “That’s So Raven” was one of the highest-rated Disney Channel Original programs ever.
Raven-Symoné serves as an executive producer on the spin-off series “Raven’s Home” which will premiere on Friday, July 21st on Disney Channel.
Disney has released a first trailer for “Raven’s Home” which is embedded below:
