Raven Symoné Announces ‘That’s So Raven’ Spin-Off and Leaving ‘The View’


Raven Symone has officially announced her departure from “The View.” The starlet announced her departure this morning from the ABC talk show. Raven opened the show informing the listening audience that she will be executive producing and starring in a That’s So Raven spin-off with Disney. A set date for her departure has yet to be determined although Raven did hint at her departing before the new year.


As far as That’s So Raven spin-off, Raven will return as the original “Raven Baxter,” a recently divorced mother raising her children. Of course, one of the children will develop psychic abilities as in the original sitcom. Raven’s departure has been rumored for months, after she began to miss shows due to transport back and forth from Los Angeles working on the developing sitcom.
