The That’s So Raven spin-off is officially a go over at the Disney Channel, and its name couldn’t be more fitting.
Raven’s Home will star an adult Raven-Symoné who is reprising her role as Raven Baxter. Anneliese van der Pol is also returning to the franchise as Chelsea Daniels. On Raven’s Home, the ladies 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.
When That’s So Raven premiered back in 2003; it became the highest-rated Disney Channel series at the time. Raven-Symoné took home four NAACP Image Awards and two Nickelodeon Kids’ Choice Awards for her work. After some controversial time on ABC’s daytime talk show, The View, Raven-Symoné decided to step away and return to the Disney Channel to work on the spin-off series where she will also serve as executive producer.
Along with Raven-Symoné, and van der Pol, some familiar faces will be rounding out the cast. Black-ish’s Issac Brown and Being Mary Jane’s Navia Robinson have been cast as Raven’s 11-year old twins, Booker and Nia, respectively. Superstore’s Jason Maybaum will star as Chelsea’s 9-year-old son, Levi and America’s Got Talent’s Sky Katz will star as Nia’s best friend, Tess.

Production is set to begin on the series this month for a release date later this year. There is no word yet on if Orlando Brown who played Eddie on That’s So Raven will guest-star, but we’re going to guess, probably not.
