Raven's back...but where's the rest of the gang?

That's so Raven is officially returning on the Disney Channel, thanks to a spinoff that finds Raven as a divorced mom of a preteen son and daughter, one of whom has inherited her ability to see glimpses of the future. Raven-Symoné is set to exit The View in December to focus on the new series, which she will star in and executive produce.

But will fans of the beloved series, which ran from 2003-07, see the return of the other characters, including Raven's BFFs and little bro?

Here's what the original cast is up to today...

That's So Raven, Orlando Brown

Orlando Brown (Eddie): The actor and musician, who played Raven's male BFF and one-episode paramour (They were better as friends, OK?!), took part in The View's That's So Raven reunion in August 2015, but was arrested in early 2016 for allegedly striking his girlfriend.

Anneliese van der Pol (Chelsea): After playing Raven's quirky BFF in all four seasons, the actress-singer-comedienne also took part in The View's mini-reunion, where it was revealed another young actress had originally landed the role. "Anneliese actually didn't get the part of Chelsea at the very beginning. Somebody else had the part," Raven said.

Kyle Massey (Cory): Raven's troublemaker of a little brother was such a fan-favorite he landed his own spinoff, Cory in the House, which wrapped in 2008. Since then, Kyle has competed on Dancing With the Stars and pursued a music career. We TOTALLY can see Cory being the fun Uncle who comes in and makes a mess for Raven to clean up.

Rondell Sheridan (Victor): Raven and Cory's father was a chef, whose go-to line was "Here comes the pain!" he also starred in the spinoff after Victor landed the coveted job of the president's chef. NBD.

T'Keyah Crystal Keymah (Tanya): Raven's mom appeared in the first three seasons of the show, but was absent for all of season four as Tanya went to England for law school...and was never seen again (not even on Cory in the House). While she exited the series early, T'Keyah, who also starred on Cosby and In Living Color, seems to have a fondness for it, as she retweets posts about That's So Raven frequently, and is already retweeting ones about the spinoff. Momma like! (Sorry, we had to.) She recently appeared in Sharknado 4 as Tech Terry @ Astro X. 

Some recurring players that we'd love to see return?

Rose Abdoo, who played Spanish teacher Senorita Rodriguez for all four seasons. She's gone on to make appearance on Scandal, Veep and Pretty Little Liars, and is reprising the role of Gypsy in the highly anticipated Gilmore Girls revival. Reboots, so hot right now. 
Jonathan McDaniels, who played Raven's BF Devon Carter in seasons two, three and four. He's currently on VH1's Hit the Floor, and OMG, what if he is the father of Raven's two kids?!
David Henrie, who played Cory's worrywart BFF and bandmate Larry, and went on to star in Disney Channel's hit series The Wizards of Waverly Place

In conclusion, there'a good chance we could see some members of the Baxter family, as well as a best friend or two, pop up when the currently untitled That's So Raven spinoff debuts. Casting is currently underway for Raven's kids.
