Raven Baxter: Raven's Home

Multitalented Raven-Symoné stars as charismatic and somewhat psychic Raven Baxter, a reprisal of her role from the iconic comedy “That’s So Raven,” in Disney Branded Television’s hit series “Raven’s Home.” Years later, Raven still catches glimpses of the future, but this time around, she is a divorced, single mom juggling career and family. In season five, Raven and her son Booker move back to San Francisco to help take care of her dad after a mild heart attack, as Raven finds herself parenting her parent, raising her young cousin and settling into life in her old hometown. Raven-Symoné also serves as executive producer for the series.

For her starring role in “Raven’s Home,” Raven-Symoné received a Daytime Emmy® Award nomination for Outstanding Performer in a Children’s, Preschool Children’s or Educational and Information Program.

Prior to returning to Disney Channel, Raven was a co-host on ABC’s daytime talk show “The View” (2012–2017), for which she received an Emmy nomination in 2017 and 2016 for Outstanding Entertainment Talk Show Host, along with her fellow co-hosts.

Raven was the first Black woman to have her name in a comedy series title for “That’s So Raven.” At age 19, she was named producer of the series and won four NAACP Image Awards, two Nickelodeon Kids’ Choice Awards, and the series received a Primetime Emmy Award nomination for Outstanding Children’s Program. She is also known for her roles in the Disney Channel Original Movies “The Cheetah Girls” and “Cheetah Girls 2,” and as Olivia on the Emmy Award-winning series “The Cosby Show,” for which she received the Young Artist Award for Exceptional Performance by a Young Actress Under Nine. She also starred on the comedy series “Hangin’ with Mr. Cooper” for four seasons.

In 2012, Raven headlined the hit Broadway musical “Sister Act,” produced by Whoopi Goldberg. She has released four studio albums, “Here’s to New Dreams,” “Undeniable,” “This Is My Time” and “Raven-Symoné.”

Additional acting credits include recurring roles in several of today’s hit television series, including ABC’s Emmy Award-nominated comedy “black-ish,” the Emmy Award-winning series “Master of None,” Emmy-nominated “Empire” and “Animals.” Her film credits include “A Girl Like Grace,” “College Road Trip,” “The Princess Diaries 2: Royal Engagement,” “Dr. Dolittle” and “Dr. Dolittle 2.”

Her additional voice-over credits include the spirited Iridessa in the “Disney Fairies” animated feature film series and Monique in Disney Channel’s hit animated series “Kim Possible.” She can also be heard as the voice of Mary in Disney Channel’s animated family-comedy series “Big City Greens” and in the hit animated series “Marvel’s Guardians of the Galaxy: Mission Breakout!”

2019 marked Raven’s return to the recording studio with the self-produced EP “33000.” In 2020, she produced and released another EP of songs entitled “Infrasounds.”
