RAVEN’S HOME, the new comedy spin-off of iconic series THAT’S SO RAVEN, brings powerhouse star Raven-Symoné back to Disney Channel to reprise the role of fan-favourite character Raven Baxter. The sitcom for kids and families, which has already seen record ratings in the US, premieres in the UK on Monday 13th November at 5pm on Disney Channel and DisneyLife.
Raven’s cast mate Anneliese van der Pol also reprises her role of free-spirited Chelsea in the new series, which finds the long-time 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, and Chelsea’s 9-year-old son Levi – in one chaotic but fun household, which 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.
The show also sees a host of new faces join the cast including 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.
Making a grand entrance, the US premiere of Raven’s Home (21st July 2017) was the #1 live-action cable TV series premiere in two years among its targeted Kid and Tween demographics*. It was also the #1 series premiere among all kid cable TV networks in Total Viewers (4 million) since BUNK’D (July 31, 2015). Further reinforcing the excitement for Raven’s return to screens, the show also generated an additional 2.4 million full-episode views on YouTube and nearly one million views via the Disney Channel App and Disney Channel VOD.
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.”
