Disney has announced that the Disney Channel has ordered a fifth season of its hit sitcom “Raven’s Home,” starring powerhouse entertainer Raven-Symoné as Raven Baxter and Issac Ryan Brown (co-host of “Disney’s Magic Bake-Off”) as her teen son, Booker. Entertaining kids age 6-14 and their families, “Raven’s Home” will continue to follow the hilarious adventures driven by somewhat psychic Raven Baxter and her son Booker, who has inherited his mom’s gift to catch glimpses of the future.

A spinoff of the iconic Disney Channel comedy “That’s So Raven” (2003-2007), season five welcomes Rondell Sheridan to the cast, who reprises his role from the beloved classic as Raven’s easygoing and loveable dad, Victor Baxter. Also joining the cast are Mykal-Michelle Harris (ABC’s “mixed-ish”) as Raven’s young cousin Alice; Felix Avitia (Disney’s “Gamers Guide to Pretty Much Everything”) as Neil, Victor’s neighbor and Booker’s high school classmate; and musician and singer Emmy Liu-Wang (Broadway musical “Annie”) as Ivy, a young neighbor who babysits Alice.


The new season will also mark a reunion for the creative team as Emmy-nominated writer/producer partners Scott Thomas and Jed Elinoff (“Malibu Rescue,” Disney’s “Randy Cunningham: 9th Grade Ninja”), who developed the series, join Raven-Symoné as executive producers, along with Anthony C. Hill (“Family Reunion,” “Raven’s Home”). Production will resume this fall.


Ayo Davis, president, Disney Branded Entertainment, said, “Ever since the debut of ‘That’s So Raven,’ Raven-Symoné has been an incredibly important part of the Disney Channel family. With ‘Raven’s Home,’ her talent and special brand of humor have continued to resonate with kids and families, and we’re excited to see what lies ahead for Raven in season five. This beloved series is in good hands with the experienced team of Raven, Scott Thomas, Jed Elinoff and Anthony C. Hill leading an amazing cast and crew.”

The beloved comedian Sheridan introduced today’s generation of Raven Baxter fans to Victor when he guest starred in the season two episode “Just Call Me Vic.” In the fifth season, Raven and Booker move back to San Francisco to help take care of her dad after a mild heart attack. Now Raven finds herself parenting her parent, raising her young cousin and settling into life in her old hometown. Meanwhile, Booker is “the new kid” at Raven’s old high school and has to keep his visions a secret from a new group of friends.


“Raven’s Home” is available on Disney Channel, DisneyNOW and Disney+. All four seasons of “That’s So Raven” are also available on Disney+.

    The interesting thing about today's announcement is that it was stealthily done first a month ago.... Example: per the Variety article, 'Disney Directing Program Participants Guaranteed to Direct Episodes of Major TV Shows for the First Time' published on Sep 2, 2021: "Other shows where program participants will direct episodes include ABC’s “The Good Doctor,” Disney Channel’s “Raven’s Home,” Fox’s “The Resident” (produced by Disney’s 20th TV) and ABC’s “The Rookie.”"
