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‘!
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.
