Raven's Home

Season two of Disney Channel's hit comedy series Raven's Home is set to premiere with a week of four new episodes, beginning Monday, June 25 - Thursday, June 28 at 9:30 a.m. EDT/PDT, on Disney Channel, in the DisneyNOW app and on Disney Channel VOD. Following the debut week, new episodes will premiere throughout the summer on Tuesday and Friday mornings at 9:30 a.m. EDT/PDT, as part of Disney Channel's GO! Summer that super-serves kids and families all season with new programming and fan-centric off-air events. Made for kids age 6-14 and their families, the series will continue to present funny, relatable, heartfelt and broad storylines about kids, parents, twin siblings and best friends for life. In the second season, Raven Baxter, played by Emmy(R)-nominated comedic actress Raven-Symoné, learns along with the entire family that her son Booker has inherited her ability to catch glimpses into the future. When Booker and Raven's visions collide, it sets madcap escapades into motion for the entire extended family.

The second season will spotlight the multitalented cast in a show-stopping musical episode, with original songs and dance numbers choreographed by Will "Willdabeast" Adams and directed by Paul Hoen (director of over a dozen Disney Channel Original Movies including ZOMBIES and Camp Rock 2, Let It Shine). Season two guest stars include Jonathan McDaniel (That So Raven) who returns as Nia and Booker's dad, Devon Carter; Brian George (That's So Raven) as Dr. Sleevemore; Mike Massimino as Tess' dad, Jimmy; Anthony Alabi as Coach Spitz; Wendy Raquel Robinson (Descendants) as Dream Weaver; and Dylan Martin Frankel as the family's new 12-year-old landlord, Mitch.
