“That’s So Raven” sequel introduces Raven and Chelsea’s children
Disney Channel’s favourite psychic is set to return to the masses as the spinoff/sequel of Disney’s beloved “That’s So Raven”, has finally revealed the entire main cast of the series – and that of course, include Raven Symone herself as the titular character, Raven Baxter!
“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 as quoted by Deadline.
“After being a part of over 20 different Disney projects, we are thrilled to be bringing Raven home to Disney Channel once again.”
Titled as “Raven’s Home”, the series will also feature Anneliese Van der Pol who will be reprising her role on the show, as Raven Baxter’s best friend Chelsea Daniels.
This time around, the two friends will be playing the roles of two divorced single mothers raising their families in a hilariously out-of-control household – but things get messier when one of Raven's kids inherits her ability to see the future.
“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,” as explained in a statement.
Raven’s children will be played by Isaac Brown and Navia Robinson as Booker and Nia, Raven’s 11-year-old twins.
Meanwhile, Chelsea's 9-year-old son, Levi, will be played by Jason Maybaum, and Sky Katz will play Nia's BFF Tess.

Rondell Sheridan and T'Keyah Crystal Keymáh, who played Raven’s parents Victor and Tania, as well as Kyle Massey who played Raven’s brother Cory, will occasionally make an appearance on the show.
However, Orlando Brown who played the role of Raven’s other best friend Eddie Thomas, will be replaced by YouTuber-turned-actor Alonzo Lerone, as Symone and Brown were in a particularly odd feud toward the end of 2016.
So happy to announce that I will be replacing Eddie on "That's So Raven 2" as Raven's love interest. Thank you @ravensymone 😘 pic.twitter.com/rpfUaD7iIE— youtube/Alonzo (@alonzolerone) November 15, 2016
Raven Symone will also be an executive producer on the new series, which is scheduled to air sometime this year.
“That's So Raven” ran for four seasons, producing 100 episodes, from 2003-2007. The series shattered records when it premiered in 2003 as it was the highest-rated Disney show among kids.
