That’s So Raven Spin-off: Raven’s Home 

By  | 

It’s SO offical! Disney Channel has ordered a spin-off to their popular early 2000s show That’s So Raven.

That’s So Raven was a comedic sitcom that made it’s debut on Disney Channel on January 17, 2003. The sitcom was set in San Francisco and followed the wild adventures of  psychic teen Raven Baxter played by Raven-Symone, her friends Eddie and Chelsea played by Orlando Brown and Anneliese van der Pol and her family which includes her mother, father and brother Cory. The show ended on November 10, 2007. During it’s duration on air That’s So Raven was nominated for  Emmy Awards for Outstanding Children’s Programming in 2005 and in 2007.

In October of last year Raven-Symone announced that there was a spin-off in the works. She also revealed that she would return in the spin-off as the character Raven Baxter. It has been released that Anneliese Van Der Pol would return as her character as Chelsea. Disney recently greenlit the project under the title Raven’s Home.

The show will be based on Raven and Chelsea’s life as divorced single mothers who are raising two separate families in one household that is full of chaos. The household gets turned upside down when one of Raven’s kids begins to show signs that they have inherited her gift of seeing into the future.
The cast for the spin-off includes some very talented child stars. Navia Robinson (Being Mary Jane) and Isaac Brown (Blackish) have been casted as Raven’s 11 year old twins Booker and Nia. Jason Maybaum (Superstore) will play Chelsea’s nine year old son Levi. Sky Katz (America’s Got Talent) will also be joining the cast as Tess, Nia’s best friend.

As a huge fan of That’s So Raven and an even bigger fan of Raven Symone (I’m talking about since the Cosby Show days y’all) I can’t wait until Raven’s Home hits the air.
The original series was historcial, Raven became the first black woman to have her name in a comedy series title (ain’t that something?). At the age of 19 Raven-Symone was named producer on the series. With That So Raven she won two Nickelodeon Kids Choice Awards and four NAACP Image Awards, talk about serving some serious black girl magic !
Raven-Symone has left her spot on The View to work on the sequel.
