"If you could gaze into the future, you might think life would be a breeze..." 

Raven-Symoné is going back to her roots by announcing a sequel to her breakout Disney Channel show That's So Raven. She will star and executive produce. The actress and talk show host announced that she will be leaving The View to work on the upcoming family sitcom, which is in its early casting stages.

Early details of the new show include that the starlet will reprise her role as Raven Baxter, the goofy psychic whose supernatural abilities typically get her into trouble. According to Deadline, Raven will now be "a divorced mother to two pre-teen kids (a son and daughter), one of whom has inherited her ability to catch glimpses of the future." 

The 2.0 version of That's So Raven follows the success of Disney Channel's Girl Meets World, the reboot of '90s staple Boys Meets World. While Raven came into our lives in a different era—January 2003 to be precise—the channel touts that re-runs of the show are still popular and typically garner one-million-plus viewers.

"Raven's brilliant style of fearless comedy was a driving force for Disney Channel’s success around the world," said Adam Bonnett, the EVP Original Programming for Disney Channels Worldwide. "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."

Let's get ourselves hyped with that classic theme song now, shall we?
