Fans React: ‘That’s So Raven’ Spinoff, Raven-Symone Leaving ‘View’
Raven-Symone will leave “The View” and star in a “That’s So Raven” spinoff, it was announced on Thursday. Check out fans’ reaction tweets below!
Raven-Symone got her start as an adorable tot on “The Cosby Show,” but it was the Disney Channel original series that led the child star to a whole new level of fame. Premiering in 2003, she starred as the titular Raven, a teen with psychic abilities. Hijinks would usually ensue, allowing the actress to show off her comedic chops.
Though the show ended in 2007, the series has maintained a large fan base thanks to syndication. Now many viewers are thrilled the program will be returning. The new version will see Raven-Symone reprising her signature character, now a divorced mom of tweens, one of whom has inherited her ability to see into the future.
Raven-Symone will also produce the sequel, and the time-consuming gig means she’ll be exiting “The View” later this year. The news has “That’s So Raven” trending on Twitter, where fans are discussing the big announcement. @temofregoso, for instance, tweeted, “OMG!!!! I woke up to best news ever!!! That’s so Raven is happening again!!!”
@ThottyBey confessed, “Im so shook by this That’s So Raven sequel! That show was such an iconic part of my childhood & its coming back.” @Gudauski exclaimed, “OHHHH MY GOOOOOOD (Janice’s – from Friends – voice) I can’t believe!! ‘That’s so Raven’ will be back!!” @BabieDollEyez joked, “I definitely saw it coming that Raven will no longer be on the view THAT’S SO RAVEN #TheView #ThursdayThoughts.”
@ohsnapalexis9 asked, “am I the only person excited that that that’s so raven is coming back??!!!” @JorgeMartins95 declared, “That’s so Raven is getting a sequel series and all is right in the world.” And @hoodopulence even posted, “Raven leaving The View AND coming back with That’s So Raven? God is good.”
Of course, not everyone is as excited as those fans. @TonyMellace7 wrote, “As a kid I loved watching That’s So Raven. Reminding me of it makes me feel old tho. So stop it.” @Dre420 argued, “A That’s So Raven spinoff will be so corny, I can’t believe y’all actually want this.”
@nevermineme also questioned, “Who is ready for a that’s so raven spin off show. I may be stuck in the past, but I wasn’t checking for it.” @ferarifatboy admitted, “don’t know how i feel about the that’s so raven spin off.” And @LaurenOriiginal demanded, “It better be as good as the old That’s So Raven.” See video of Raven-Symone breaking the news on “The View” below.
