Jonathan McDaniel to Reprise His Role as Devon in ‘Raven’s Home’
For all of you who don’t yet know, popular Disney channel series, That’s So Raven is getting its own spin-off show called, Raven’s Home.
Now, if you were a fan of the original, you’d know that Raven’s first love was a boy named Devon Carter and actor, Jonathan McDaniel is back to reprise his role as Devon in the new Disney show.
According to E! News, McDaniel’s character Devon is the father of Raven’s two children, however the former couple will be divorced in the upcoming series.
Raven’s Home will feature Raven and her best friend, Chelsea (Anneliese van der Pol) as divorced single mothers, raising their children together in the same household. Raven’s aptitude for visions is still genetic (you’ll remember one of her grandmothers in the original show had visions too), as one of her 11-year-old twins, Booker, is also able to see the future.
Booker will be played by Isaac Ryan Brown and Navia Robinson will play Nia, with Jason Maybaum playing Chelsea’s son, Levi.
“There is only one Raven—and for over 25 years, she has blessed audiences around the world with the greatest gift of all—the pure, unadulterated joy of laugh-out-loud funny. After being a part of over 20 different Disney projects, we are thrilled to be bringing Raven home to Disney Channel once again,” President and chief creative officer of Disney Channels Worldwide, Gary Marsh said in a statement after the new show was announced.
Raven’s Home is set to premiere July 21 on the Disney Channel.
