Big changes are in store for Raven-Symone.
The 30-year-old actress and singer will be leaving The View, where she has served as a co-host since 2015, Raven-Symone announced on Thursday. Her last appearance on the daytime talk show will be later this year.
Raven-Symone will depart her gig (and move back to Los Angeles from New York City!) for an untitled That’s So Raven spinoff she is developing for Disney Channel, which will continue the story of her character, Raven Baxter, from the popular 2000s sitcom.
In the new comedy, in which Raven-Symone will reprise her role and serve as executive producer, Raven is now a divorced mother to two pre-teen kids (a son and a daughter), one of whom has inherited her ability to catch glimpses of the future. Disney Channel promises both “new and familiar characters.”
Casting for the two children are currently underway.
That’s So Raven, which ran from 2003 to 2007, was one of Disney Channel’s brightest successes (and the network's first multi-camera comedy), wrapping after 100 episodes. The original series followed a teenage Raven, whose ability to see flashes of the future often got her into hot water.
"Raven's brilliant style of fearless comedy was a driving force for Disney Channel's success around the world,” said Adam Bonnett, Executive VP Original Programming at Disney Channels Worldwide. “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."
Last August, Raven-Symone reunited with her That’s So Raven co-stars Anneliese van der Pol, Orlando Brown and Kyle Massey on The View, where they reminisced about the success of the seminal show.
