Raven-Symone Leaves ‘The View’ / Readying ‘That’s So Raven’ Reboot

Published: Thursday 27th Oct 2016 by David

The endearing yet occasionally controversial Raven-Symone has been let go by ABC’s ‘The View’ 

As reported here months ago, Symone’s role on the hit show was thrown into question as it approached its 20th season.

Alas, those hoping the report would amount to nothing more than a rumour will be upset to learn that she has indeed parted ways with the series.

However, all isn’t lost for the talented star.

For, her separation from Whoopi and Co will give her the time to rebuild her hit TV series ‘That’s So Raven‘!

‘Deadline’ reports:

Raven will reprise her title role of Raven Baxter in the offshoot, which she also will executive produce. On the new show, Raven is a divorced mother to two pre-teen kids (a son and daughter), one of whom has inherited her ability to catch glimpses of the future. The pilot is being written/executive produced by longtime writing/producing partners Scott Thomas and Jed Elinoff (Disney Channel’s Best Friends Whenever).

The reboot will be housed by Disney who are currently on the hunt for actors to fill its roles.

Adam Bonnett, EVP Original Programming, Disney Channels Worldwide shared:

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.

    Ehhh, Disney new shows suck..I don’t want them to mess this up.

      They’re probably giving her this show because they feel bad letting her go after forcing her to say those anti-black remarks that costed her fans and her reputation to boost ratings for that dying show. Raven has had a long standing relationship with Disney and the ABC family so it’s no big surprise they would look out for her… plus The View ultimately benefited from her star power, it’s just that after while Raven really wasn’t a good fit for the show. She was ill informed in most topics and she struggled to articulate herself. She did well when it came to segments and interviews but overrral she wasn’t effective in her primary role.

    I’m here for the show if it’s good but I can’t stand her.

    • kwinzy October 27, 2016

      She can’t embody the same Raven Baxter I fell in love with. It’s over for ha.

      • Danzou October 27, 2016

        I just have a bad taste now that she’s shown ha true colors.

  7. Ciah’s Turtle October 27, 2016

    C’mon Raven Baxter!! she better be just as ratchet as she was too.

  8. Sharp@me.com October 27, 2016

    She claimed if Trump won the Republican Nomination she would move to Canada… shouldn’t she already be gone


  11. Boohoo October 27, 2016

  12. XoMoDe October 27, 2016

    She looks like a grandma…

  13. Wonder Woman October 27, 2016

    For someone who’s black and just turned 30 she’s really aging well
    Black’s do crack after all

    • kwinzy October 27, 2016

      1. Raven’s not black, she an “American” remember?
      2. Most blacks don’t crack due to melanin. It’s been proven. Salty much?

      • Danzou October 27, 2016

        White people try it. Always try it. I bet this is suicide blonde.

  15. Lake Erie October 27, 2016

    She too old for that now. Do a sophisticated drama or something.

  16. eric October 27, 2016

    She’s burned too many bridges to go back to wearing that hat. Parents have to buy into it before their kids will, and that’s just not gonna happen.

  17. Stephy October 28, 2016

    I’ll be watching.
