Raven’s Home, a sitcom for kids and families that brings powerhouse star Raven-Symoné back to Disney Channel to reprise the role of Raven Baxter from the iconic comedy series That’s So Raven, premieres Autumn 2017 on Disney Channel and DisneyLife in the UK.
Raven’s castmate Anneliese van der Pol also reprises her role of free-spirited Chelsea in the new series, which finds the longtime best friends each divorced with kids of their own. The single mums come together to help raise their children – Raven’s 11-year-old twins Booker and Nia, Chelsea’s 9-year-old son Levi – in one chaotic, but fun household that often includes the twin’s best friend and neighbour Tess. Raven still catches glimpses of the future, but she’s not the only one in the family who does – Booker has the same ability. While Booker uses his newly found power to try and make sense of middle school and his new family life, Raven uses her power to help her be a better mum, a great fashion designer and an awesome friend. Hilarity ensues as Raven and Booker’s visions collide, but no matter the situation, they figure everything out together as one big happy family.
Also starring are Issac Ryan Brown (black-ish, Miles from Tomorrow) as overly confident but loveable Booker; Navia Robinson (Being Mary Jane) as independent, no-nonsense Nia; Jason Maybaum (Superstore) as savvy, wise-beyond-his-years Levi; and Sky Katz (America’s Got Talent) as Booker and Nia’s gutsy best friend and neighbour Tess.
Adam Bonnett, executive vice president, Original Programming, Disney Channels Worldwide, said,
“Raven is a one-of-a-kind, gifted performer and both she and Anneliese have an undeniable chemistry that we look forward to sharing with a new generation of kids and families. We are just as thrilled to introduce the series’ new talent – Issac, Navia, Jason and Sky – as part of this exciting new family sitcom.”
Raven’s Home was created by longtime writer/producer partners Scott Thomas and Jed Elinoff (Disney Channel’s Best Friends Whenever, Emmy nominees for R.L. Stine’s The Haunting Hour), and is executive produced by Thomas and Elinoff, and Raven-Symoné.
