Top 5 Facts about Raven's Home

Want to know what happened to Raven Baxter? Welcome to MsMojo and today we're counting down our picks for the Top 5 Facts about Raven's Home.

For this list, we’re looking at the must-know facts about this new Disney Channel show.

#5: Raven Symoné is an Executive Producer

Though she may have only been a teenager when the show first aired, Raven Symoné was actually an executive producer on her Disney Channel show, “That’s So Raven”. The show ran from 2003 to 2007 and Raven produced 22 of the show’s 100 episodes. It would only make sense that she would continue to produce the spin-off show, “Raven’s Home” which aired exactly a decade after the final episode of “That’s So Raven.” This means Raven will have creative control over the series and be able to give input on the story’s direction.

#4: The Details of Raven’s Divorce

On “That’s So Raven”, Raven’s main love interest throughout the series was nerd turned hottie, Devon. Despite Devon moving to Seattle part way through their relationship, these two manage to work things out. In the 2017 spin off however, we see that Devon and Raven have two children together, but that they’re divorced. The producers said that they wanted to show a different kind of divorce relationship than is typically seen in TV and movies, where both parties get along and continue to have a friendly and functional rapport.

#3: Most of the Show's Production Team Remained on Board

Despite a full decade going by between “That’s So Raven” wrapping and “Raven’s Home” going to air, almost all the major players have returned to work on the spinoff. Of course, it started with lead actress Raven Symoné and was followed by Anneliese van der Pol playing Raven’s friend Chelsea. We can expect to see some other familiar faces as the show progresses. Beyond that though, the crew behind the scenes largely decided to return in order to usher Raven’s story into its next chapter.

#2: One Notable Character Has Been Recast

The main trio on “That’s So Raven” consisted of the titular character as well as her best friends Eddie and Chelsea. In the original series, Eddie was portrayed by actor Orlando Brown but it turns out that he won’t be reprising his role in “Raven’s Home.” There has been much speculation as to why the part was recast, but it seems clear that his trouble with the law would have something to do with it, considering it is a Disney show. It doesn’t help that he has made some strange comments and allegations about Raven Symoné in the years since “Raven” wrapped.

#1: The Show’s Message is an Important One

While a show like “That’s So Raven” or the new “Raven’s Home” might be seen as pure fun and entertainment, the creators still want fans to know that the message behind their creation is one they hope hits home. They wanted to put an emphasis on the possible longevity of female friendship when showing how close Raven and Chelsea are even after many years and life changes. Raven has also expressed that she wants viewers to take away the value of respectful and clear communication with one another.
