Disney Channel announced a series renewal today, picking up a second season of the hit series “Raven’s Home.” The show stars and is executive produced by Raven-Symoné, who reprises her role as Raven Baxter from the comedy “That’s So Raven.”
Production will resume in Hollywood next month, the channel announced.
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, commented: “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 announcement adds: “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.”
“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.
