Disney Channel has ordered a second season of its hit series Raven's Home, starring and executive produced by multitalented Raven-Symoné who reprises her role as Raven Baxter from the iconic comedy That's So Raven. Production will resume in Hollywood next month. Joining Raven-Symoné as executive producers are Dava Savel (That's So Raven, Will and Grace) and Michael Feldman (That's So Raven, Nicky, Ricky, Dicky and Dawn). Here's what Adam Bonnett, executive vice president, Original Programming, Disney Channels Worldwide, said in a statement.
"We are incredibly proud of our first season and the fact that Raven has returned home to Disney Channel in a very big way. The entire cast and crew have delivered a classic family sitcom that kids and families will be watching for many years to come."
The July premiere of Raven's Home was the #1 live-action cable TV series premiere in two years among its targeted demographics, Kids 6-11 (1.3 million/5.3 rating) and Tweens 9-14 (1.5 million/6.1 rating), and Kids 2-11 (1.6 million/4.0 rating). It was also the #1 series premiere among all kid cable TV networks in Total Viewers (4.0 million) since Disney Channel's BUNK'D (July 31, 2015). Since its debut, Raven's Home is #1 in its Friday timeslot and has amassed over 50 million views on TV and digital viewing platforms, including nearly 4.5 million on YouTube and nearly 10 million views on VOD, making it Disney Channel's #1-streamed series.
Raven's Home follows the hilarity and adventures of longtime best friends Raven and Chelsea who are each divorced with kids of their own, Raven's twins, Booker and Nia, and Chelsea's son, Levi, living in one hectic but fun household that often includes the twins' best friend and neighbor, 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 mom, 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 Tomorrowland) 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 neighbor Tess. Raven's Home was developed by longtime writer/producer partners Scott Thomas and Jed Elinoff (Disney Channel's Best Friends Whenever). New episodes of Raven's Home are presented Fridays (8:00-8:30 p.m. EDT) on Disney Channel and available in DisneyNow and on demand. All four seasons of That's So Raven are also available on Disney Channel VOD.
