“That’s So Raven,” the hit Disney Channel series starring Raven-Symoné, is getting a spin-off. Raven has already confirmed the news and has bid goodbye to “The View” in order to prepare for the project. So far, the only cast member confirmed to join the series is Raven, who will play a single mother to two children. One of her children got her ability to see the future.
If it were up to Orlando Brown, who appeared in the original series, all of the cast members will be part of the spin-off. In a video obtained by TMZ, the actor, who played Eddie on the show, said he and his other co-stars should be part of the spin-off because the original series would not have been successful without them.
“When you say ‘That’s So Raven 2,’ it’s a serious situation because we’ve got fans all around the world that love the whole cast,” Brown said. “‘That’s So Raven’ is nothing without Chelsea (Anneliese van der Pol), Kyle [Massey], which is Cory. You got T’Keyah Crystal Keymah. You got Rondell [Sheridan]. We all are family. We did what we had to do to make a historical moment happen, and I don’t think it would’ve happened without all of us.”
Brown also said that he has already heard what the premise of the spin-off will be about and that he finds it “cool” that Raven will play a single mother.
Raven announced her exit from “The View” last week, according to the Los Angeles Times. The actress said that apart from starring on the show, she will also produce it.
Meanwhile, things have not been good between Raven and Brown. The actor said in an Instagram video earlier this year that he and the actress are not speaking to each other because Raven thinks he stole her phone.
Raven and Disney have yet to announce casting details for “That’s So Raven 2.”
