Today, Disney Channel renewed That's So Raven spin-off, Raven's Home, for a fifth season. But they also revealed that some key characters will not be returning, a major one being Chelsea Daniels (Anneliese van der Pol) and the actress who plays her daughter. In Season 5, Raven and Booker (Issac Ryan Brown) move back to San Francisco to help take care of her dad Victor (Rondell Sheridan) after a mild heart attack. Now Raven finds herself parenting her parent, raising her young cousin and settling into life in her old hometown. Meanwhile, Booker is “the new kid” at Raven’s old high school and has to keep his visions a secret from a new group of friends.

Due to the new setting, for some reason this resulted in the departure of several series regulars, Navia Robinson (Nia) who played Raven's daughter, Jason Maybaum (Levi), and Sky Katz (Tess). The latter two are, whatever.

Also joining the upcoming season’s cast are Mykal-Michelle Harris (mixed-ish) as Raven’s young cousin Alice; Felix Avitia (Gamers Guide to Pretty Much Everything) as Neil, Victor’s neighbor and Booker’s high school classmate; and Emmy Liu-Wang (Andrean Players’ Annie) as Ivy, a young neighbor who babysits Alice.

“Ever since the debut of ‘That’s So Raven,’ Raven-Symoné has been an incredibly important part of the Disney Channel family. With ‘Raven’s Home,’ her talent and special brand of humor have continued to resonate with kids and families, and we’re excited to see what lies ahead for Raven in season five,” Ayo Davis, president, Disney Branded Entertainment said. “This beloved series is in good hands with the experienced team of Raven, Scott Thomas, Jed Elinoff and Anthony C. Hill leading an amazing cast and crew.”
