Raven's Home, a sitcom for kids and families that brings powerhouse star Raven-Symone back to Disney Channel to reprise the role of Raven Baxter from the iconic comedy series That's So Raven, premieres Friday, July 21 (10:00-10:30 p.m. EDT), on Disney Channel, and will be available on the Disney Channel App, VOD and Disney Channel YouTube (12:01 a.m. EDT). The linear debut of Raven's Home will immediately follow the television premiere of the highly anticipated Descendants 2 (8:00-10:00 p.m. EDT). New episodes of Raven's Home will air Fridays (8:30-9:00 p.m. EDT) on Disney Channel, beginning July 28. All four seasons of That's So Raven will be available on-demand on the Disney Channel App and VOD Thursday, June 1.
Raven's castmate Anneliese van der Pol also reprises her role of free-spirited Chelsea in the new series, which finds the longtime best friends each divorced with kids of their own. The single moms come together to help raise their children, Raven's 11-year-old twins Booker and Nia, Chelsea's 9-year-old son Levi, in one chaotic, but fun household that often includes the twin's 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. Here's what Adam Bonnett, executive vice president, Original Programming, Disney Channels Worldwide, had to say in his statement.
"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."
