Disney announced Monday that Anneliese van der Pol will reprise her role as Chelsea Daniels in the sequel series, joining Raven-Symoné. The show will bring back the duo, who played high school students during the original, which ran from 2001 to 2006.
"The pairing of Raven-Symone and Anneliese is comedy gold," said Disney in a statement. "They each are skillful performers and there's a fantastic comedic chemistry between them. The two women are dear friends in real life too and are both thrilled to soon be working together again."
Both characters' lives will have changed drastically since "That's So Raven." Now, they'll both be moms, trying to raise their children post-divorce. To make things easier, Chelsea and her son, Levi, will move in with Raven and her two kids, Nia and Booker, according to Entertainment Weekly.
The premise sounds similar to Netflix's "Full House" revival, "Fuller House," but there will be differences. Lest you've forgotten, Raven has psychic powers that tended to get both her and Chelsea into strange predicaments. We should get more of that, flashbacks to our own adolescence, and the two of them calling out "haters" -- all intriguing ingredients.
