We already knew a That's So Raven spin-off was on the way, and it's the reason we're still alive and thriving today. But now, Disney has officially announced they've ordered a full season of the series, titled Raven's Home, and revealed today the entire cast.
Naturally, queen Raven-Symone will be returning, as well as (thank the Lord) Anneliese Van Der Pol, both of them reprising their roles as best friends Raven Baxter and Chelsea Daniels, respectively. The two will now play single divorcees living together in a wild house with their kids: Raven's 11-year-old twins, Booker and Nia, played by "Black-ish" star Isaac Brown and "Being Mary Jane"'s Navia Robinson. Chelsea's 9-year-old son, Levi, will be played by Superstore's Jason Maybaum. Rounding out the cast is Sky Katz, of America's Got Talent, playing Nia's BFF Tess.
"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," said Disney Channels Worldwide president Gary Marsh. "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 shattered records when it premiered in 2003--Raven alone picked up for NAACP awards and two Kid's Choice Awards for the show, and became the first African-American woman ever to have her name in the title of a comedy series. The show was also nominated for an Emmy for Outstanding Children's Program.
Production on the new show is set to start in LA this month, with a debut episode coming later in 2017.
