That's So Raven is getting it's own spin off show!!!
That's right your favorite vision seeing, trouble making, fun loving girl Raven Baxter is coming back to Disney Channel. Raven-Symone broke the news herself on her talk show The View.
For those of you who've never seen That's So Raven or were to young to watch the show when it was originally on air I'll give you a little backstory.
That's So Raven was a show that ran on Disney Channel from 2003 to 2007. It followed the life of teenage fashionista Raven Baxter who had a gift/curse of being able to see the future. Raven's ability ended up getting her into a lot of crazy, funny, and ridiculous situations. The only people who knew of Raven's secret were her family and two best friends Eddie and Chelsea.
Now that you're all caught up let's get back to it, shall we?
Raven-Symone will be back to reprise her role as Raven Baxter. Now some odd years later Raven is all grown up, and is a single mother of two kids. Plot twist: One of Raven's kids (Baxter not Symone) is going to find out that she also has visions.
Raven will not only be staring in the show but she'll also be an executive producer. Still no word if anyone else from the original cast is hoping on board but it's still pretty early. There's also going to be a nation wide talent search for the cast of the new show. More information can be found on audition dates & cities here when available!
This is the moment we've been waiting for, or at least I have!! For the longest time I've talked about how Disney Channel doesn't make quality shows or movies like they used to, and I know I'm not the only one who's noticed.
From 2000 to 2008 is what I would call the Golden Age of Disney Channel (Lizzie Mcguire, That's So Raven, Evens Stevens, Phil of The Future, Hannah Montana etc.). Almost every show and D.COM (Disney Channel Original Movie) was; entertaining, hilarious, and informative. But now all Disney has to offer are shows and movies that are; predictable, bland, and cheesy.
Although I'm super excited, I'm also nervous. This situation could go one of two ways. It could be a complete and total flop or, it could be an amazing show that let's us older millennials live out our childhood while introducing Generation Z to quality tv. I'll keep my fingers crossed and pray for the latter.
