Raven-Symoné Producing ‘That’s So Raven’ Spin-Off for Disney
Raven-Symoné is returning to her Disney Channel roots- she’s working with the network to bring back her classic series That’s So Raven, but with a twist.
The original series was a family comedy that revolved around the life of Raven Baxter, a teen who had the ability to catch glimpses of the future. Symone will return to the series as Raven Baxter and will also executive produce the new project.
Development and preliminary casting are already underway. According to Disney, the pilot story will follow Raven, now a divorced mother of two pre-teen kids (a son and daughter), one of whom has inherited her ability to catch glimpses of the future.

“Raven’s brilliant style of fearless comedy was a driving force for Disney Channel’s success around the world. Her performance in That’s So Raven is timeless,” said Adam Bonnett, EVP Original Programming, Disney Channels Worldwide. “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.”
Longtime writer/producer partners Scott Thomas and Jed Elinoff (Disney Channel’s Best Friends Whenever, Emmy nominees for R.L. Stine’s The Haunting Hour) are also working on the development of the untitled spin-off series.
