World, meet Raven Baxter’s kids!
Casting is underway for the just-announced That’s So Raven spinoff, and E! News has exclusive intel on the new characters we’ll meet when the as-yet-untitled series debuts in 2017.
The show follows the two pre-teen children of divorced mom Raven (original star Raven-Symoné, who is also producing the new series). One of the kiddos has inherited Raven’s ability to see glimpses of the future. Those children are:
Nia, Raven’s bold and confident daughter who frequently finds herself in over her head. She’s well-intentioned and won’t give up when she sets her mind to something (even if it gets her into trouble), and always wants to help people and do what’s right. She just started middle school and is great at science (though average in other subjects)—and her life gets way more complicated when she suddenly gets the power to see visions of the future.
Booker, Raven’s sweet, naive younger son, a young Donald Glover type. He’s gullible and innocent and in no rush to grow up—and is an unapologetic mama’s boy. He won’t do something bad unless he’s tricked into it (which is pretty easy to do), but will stand up for himself when he finally catches on to what’s happening.
