The co-host of ‘The View’ has decided to return in Disney Channel series’ ‘That’s So Raven’ as Raven. Baxter-Symone will star and executive-produce on the series which is currently in development and does not yet have a title. She will be leaving ‘The View’ in December this year, one and a half year after joining it.
“I’ve had such a great time… I’ve learned so much, and I’ve been saying, my experience has been multidimensional” – said Symone about her exit.
The series finds Symone as a divorced mother of a son and daughter and one of them has inherited the ability to see glimpses of the future. The casting of the children is underway.
“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. 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” – said Adam Bonnett in a statement.
The series ran for four seasons before ending in 2007, becoming the network’s first series with 100 episodes. It co-starred Kyle Massey (Cory), Orlando Brown (Eddie) and Anneliese van der Pol (Chelsea). There’s no word about a planned premiere and it hasn’t been announced whether other members will return.
