OH SNAP! Raven Symone is officially BACK. Finally, after much anticipation, Disney Channel has announced which actors and actresses have been cast in the That's So Raven spin-off series, Raven's Home. Fans of the original show were super excited when the network announced the spin-off back in 2016.
Disney Channel's executive vice president, Adam Bonnet, released a statement when the news was released. He said, "Raven's brilliant style of fearless comedy was a driving force for Disney Channel's success around the world. Her performance in That's So Raven is timeless. We now have our eyes on the future with her, and we're looking forward to telling more stories for a new generation with an adult Raven Baxter raising her young family."
Now, it looks like the show is really coming to life. Not only will Anneliese van der Pol reprise her role as Raven Baxter's best friend Chelsea Daniels, but her character has also hit another major milestone – she's a mom!
Now, it's time to meet the newest members of the show that will hopefully bring back that OG Disney Channel nostalgia we all dream about.
He will play the role of Booker, the brother in Raven's boy-girl set of twins.
Navia will play the role of Nia, the sister in Raven's boy-girl set of twins.
Jason will play the role of Chelsea's son, Levi.
Skylar will play the role of Tess, Raven's daughter's best friend.
Currently, we don't have many more details about the characters or what their storylines will be on the show. However, they all seem super eager to get the word out. They have all posted messages on their social media accounts officially announcing that they have been cast. Skylar posted a photo with Navia and it seems like they may have been friends before this whole thing which is super awesome because that means their chemistry on screen will be incredible!
Skylar posted this photo with Navia with the caption, "So exited to work with my bestie on and off the show?? @naviarobinson."
Here's to hoping that now that the cast has been announced, the Disney Channel will keep fans engaged and release more information little by little. Who do YOU think will inherit Raven's super power? Will she and Chelsea still act like they use to? Will their kids all be friends? So many questions!
One thing is for sure, we're getting a vision right now that this is going to be one epic spin-off.
