Oh, snap! Raven-Symoné is reprising her role as Raven Baxter in a Disney Channel spinoff of her 2003-2007 series "That's So Raven."
The untitled spinoff will show Raven as a divorced mother of two preteens (a son and a daughter, TVLine reports), and the daughter inherited Raven's ability to see glimpses of the future. Casting is currently under way.
Adam Bonnett, executive VP of original programming for Disney Channels Worldwide, issued a statement:
"Raven's brilliant style of fearless comedy was a driving force for Disney Channel's success around the world. Her performance in 'That's So Raven' is timeless. We now have our eyes on the future with her, and we're looking forward to telling more stories for a new generation with an adult Raven Baxter raising her young family."

Raven-Symoné said she's leaving "The View" "before the year is up."She will relocate from New York to L.A. for the spinoff, in which she is an executive producer as well as a star. She was already only appearing occasionally on "The View," and her exit was expected. At least it's coming with good news about her future (which she probably saw coming for a long time).
