Disney Picks Up 2nd Season of Raven Sitcom; Family Matters Cast Reunites

Raven's Home

Disney Channel has ordered a second season of its hit series Raven's Home, starring and executive produced by multitalented Raven-Symoné who reprises her role as Raven Baxter from the iconic comedy That's So Raven. Production will resume in Hollywood next month. Joining Raven-Symoné as executive producers are Dava Savel and Michael Feldman. The series also stars Issac Ryan Brown, Navia Robinson, Jason Maybaum, Sky Katz and Anneliese van der Pol. 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.

New episodes of Raven's Home are presented Fridays (8:00-8:30 p.m. EDT) on Disney Channel and available in DisneyNow and on demand. All four seasons of That's So Raven are also available on Disney Channel VOD. Raven's Home follows the hilarity and adventures of longtime best friends Raven and Chelsea who are each divorced with kids of their own - Raven's twins, Booker and Nia, and Chelsea's son, Levi - living in one hectic but fun household that often includes the twin's best friend and neighbor, Tess. Unbeknownst to the kids, Raven still catches glimpses of the future, and unbeknownst to her, Booker has discovered he has the same ability to see into the future.

In this interview, Jaleel White reveals that, as a 12 year-old actor, he auditioned for Steve Urkel by emulating Martin Short's SNL character, Ed Grimley. Jaleel said, "I was just a 12-year old black kid doing an Ed Grimley impersonation ... because I'm African American, at this time, people are not thinking that my influences are white." The cast also talks about the origin of Steve Urkel's catchphrase, "Did I do that?" and gets emotional as they describe how they helped to raise Shawn Harrison (Waldo Faldo) after his mother passed away. Watch the full reunion with the cast!
