Raven-Symone is the star and executive producer of Raven’s Home, the spin-off to That’s So Raven, a role that transformed her into one of Hollywood’s most recognisable child stars.

Raven plays a single mother of fraternal twins, Nia and Booker, and shares her house with her bestie Chloe and her son Levi. Things get a bit interesting for Raven when she notices that her son, Booker, has inherited her psychic abilities.


Raven’s Home is back for season 3

In Season Three of Raven’s Home, Raven Baxter and her twins Booker and Nia—along with Raven’s longtime best friend Chelsea and son Levi, and Nia’s best friend and neighbor Tess—are focused on pursuing their creative dreams.

Booker, Nia and Tess form a music group, The Chi-Lective, with Levi as their music video director. Meanwhile, Raven is determined to launch her fashion line while Chelsea has found her niche as a life coach. Raven’s and Booker’s glimpses of the future continue to drive the madcap adventures for their lively household.

Like mother, like son, they both see just enough to drive them to interfere with the anticipated outcome, which often leads to hilarious predicaments and mishaps at every corner.

She does it all with pride

Before starring in That’s So Raven, the actress appeared in The Cosby Show and Hangin’ With Mr. Cooper. We all know how often child stars who grow up in the limelight fall victim to alcohol and substance abuse, but that didn’t happen to Raven. She did, however, suffer from years of mental issues due to body shaming. Her longevity in the entertainment industry as a singer, actress, producer and co-host of The View has been motivational to other stars who started out at a young age. In Raven’s Home, she’s reunited with fellow That’s So Raven star Anneliese van der Pol who plays Chelsea Grayson.


Even though it feels like she was that quirky member of the family because of her celebrity status, Raven opened up to Variety about her struggles to disclose her sexuality and the pressure she faced when it came to her personal dressing style. She does feel, however, that there have been changes with the way the LGBTQI community is represented without making an apology; that it’s okay to be your authentic self, celebrity status or not. The 34-year-old confesses that even though she’s seen as the bubbly and outspoken celeb with a humble demeanour, she only felt comfortable about being her true self in her late 20s. When it comes to children’s programming, Raven loves the inclusivity it strives to ensure, especially Disney’s Andi Mack, its first series to have a gay man as the main character.

Raven’s Home S3 starts Monday 10 February on Disney Channel (303) at 17:00
