That's So Raven Spin-Off Gets Premiere Date in July; Once Upon a Time Special to Air Before Finale

Raven's Home

Raven's Home, a sitcom for kids and families that brings powerhouse star Raven-Symoné back to Disney Channel to reprise the role of Raven Baxter from the iconic comedy series That's So Raven, premieres Friday, July 21 at a special time of 10:00pm EDT, on Disney Channel, and will be available on the Disney Channel App, VOD and Disney Channel YouTube (12:01 a.m. EDT). The linear debut of Raven's Home will immediately follow the television premiere of the highly anticipated Descendants 2 from 8:00-10:00 p.m. EDT. New episodes of Raven's Home will air Fridays at 8:30 pm EDT on Disney Channel, beginning July 28. To get fans ready and excited, all four seasons of That's So Raven will be available on-demand on the Disney Channel App and VOD Thursday, June 1.

Raven's castmate Anneliese van der Pol also reprises her role of free-spirited Chelsea in the new series, which finds the longtime best friends each divorced with kids of their own. The single moms come together to help raise their children - Raven's 11-year-old twins Booker and Nia, Chelsea's 9-year-old son Levi - in one chaotic, but fun household that often includes the twin's best friend and neighbor Tess. Raven still catches glimpses of the future, but she's not the only one in the family who does - Booker has the same ability. While Booker uses his newly found power to try and make sense of middle school and his new family life, Raven uses her power to help her be a better mom, a great fashion designer and an awesome friend. Hilarity ensues as Raven and Booker's visions collide, but no matter the situation, they figure everything out together as one big happy family.

Also starring are Issac Ryan Brown (black-ish, Miles from Tomorrowland) as overly confident but loveable Booker; Navia Robinson (Being Mary Jane) as independent, no-nonsense Nia; Jason Maybaum (Superstore) as savvy, wise-beyond-his-years Levi; and Sky Katz (America's Got Talent) as Booker and Nia's gutsy best friend and neighbor Tess.


Once Upon a Time

The highly anticipated musical episode of Once Upon a Time aired last night and now next week it is time for the two-hour finale. But before that, ABC is giving us a special. Once Upon a Time: The Final Battle Begins - Join the talented cast and executive producers as they identify some of their favorite moments over the past six seasons, as well as take a look back at their characters' journeys. They will discuss what the show has meant to them personally and to the millions of fans who made Once Upon a Time a hit show on ABC. Additionally in this special, "Oncers" get to ask the cast and producers their most burning questions about the series. Take a look back at the origins, the love and romance, and all the adventures along that way that fans have cherished these past six seasons on Sunday, May 14 (7:00-8:00 p.m. EDT). Afterwards, stay tuned for the epic two-hour season finale, as the final battle has arrived, on Once Upon a Time, (8:00-10:00 p.m. EDT), on The ABC Television Network.

There's still no word on a seventh season, but odds are that there will be one. There could be some sort of "reset" button, but that is still not certain. Once Upon a Time stars Ginnifer Goodwin as Snow White/Mary Margaret, Jennifer Morrison as Emma Swan, Lana Parrilla as the Evil Queen/Regina Mills, Josh Dallas as Prince Charming/David, Emilie de Ravin as Belle, Colin O'Donoghue as Hook, Jared S.
