Disney Channel has officially greenlit “Raven’s Home,” the “That’s So Raven” spin-off starring Raven-Symoné and Anneliese van der Pol, who will reprise their roles as best friends Raven Baxter and Chelsea Daniels from the 2003-07 multi-camera family sitcom. Production is set to begin this month in Los Angeles for a scheduled premiere in 2017.
The logline: Geared toward kids 6-14 and their families, the series will pick up with Raven and Chelsea, who are now divorced single mothers raising their two separate families in one chaotic, but fun household full of friends. 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.
Issac Brown (“black-ish,” “Miles from Tomorrowland”) and Navia Robinson (“Being Mary Jane”) have been cast as Raven’s 11-year-old twins Booker and Nia, respectively, and Jason Maybaum (“Superstore”) will play Chelsea’s nine-year-old son Levi. Sky Katz (“America’s Got Talent”) also joins the cast as Nia’s best friend Tess.
