DISNEY CHANNEL HAS ORDERED A SECOND SEASON OF HIT SERIES ‘RAVEN’S HOME,’ STARRING AND EXECUTIVE PRODUCED BY RAVEN-SYMONÉ
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). The series also stars Issac Ryan Brown, Navia Robinson, Jason Maybaum, Sky Katz and Anneliese van der Pol.
Adam Bonnett, executive vice president, Original Programming, Disney Channels Worldwide, said, “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.
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.
“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 twin’s best friend and neighbor, Tess. Unbeknownst to the kids, Raven still catches glimpses of the future, and unbeknownst to her, Booker has discovered he has the same ability to see into the future.
“Raven’s Home” was developed by longtime writer/producer partners Scott Thomas and Jed Elinoff (Disney Channel’s “Best Friends Whenever”), and created by “That’s So Raven” creators Michael Poryes and Susan Sherman.
