While we were definitely thrilled to see Raven-Symoné in Cheetah Girls during our Disney movie Netflix binge (and loved her adorable stunt pup), we are totally psyched at Raven’s latest news. Disney is all set to bring us a That’s So Raven spinoff. Eee! And the best part? It will star Raven herself!
Also acting as the executive producer for the new series, Raven will star as a divorced mom who’s raising a preteen son and daughter. One of her kids (we’re not sure which one yet) will have inherited her ability to see into the future. That’s so awesome. And it’s also so Raven.
“Raven’s brilliant style of fearless comedy was a driving force for Disney Channel’s success around the world,” Disney’s Adam Bonnet said in a statement, adding, “Her performance in That’s So Raven is timeless. We now have our eyes on the future with her…” (EYES ON THE FUTURE! Get it? lol!) “…and we’re looking forward to telling more stories for a new generation with an adult Raven Baxter raising her young family.”
With casting currently underway for the yet-untitled show, Raven will be wrapping up her co-hosting duties on The View in December to work full-time on the new spinoff. With no news on a premiere date or if any of the other actors from the original cast will be making an appearance, we’ll be sure to keep up with all of the latest buzz as deets are released.
Until then, “If you could gaze into the future, you might think life would be a breeze…”
