Anneliese van der Pol as Chelsea Grayson (seasons 1–4; special guest star season 5), Raven's somewhat dim-witted and sweet best friend and the mother of Levi.
Raven's secret is shared with her best friends Eddie Thomas (Orlando Brown) and Chelsea Daniels (Anneliese van der Pol), along with her brother Cory (Kyle Massey) and parents Tanya (T'Keyah Crystal Keymáh) and Victor (Rondell Sheridan). The series explores supernatural elements, family, friendship, and adolescence.
Disney's That's So Raven began 13 years ago and Raven Baxter (Raven-Symoné) and Chelsea Daniels (Anneliese van der Pol) have remained friends all this time, as evidenced by their recent reunion pic from Friday (March 11).
According to certain rumors online, the current changes in the cast are likely due to contract negotiations. With Disney, allegedly, wanting to bring on new “regulars” at lower rates compared to renegotiating higher pay rates for a bunch of actors who have been Raven's Home series regulars for four seasons.
The move welcomes back Rondell Sheridan as Baxter's lovable father, Victor Baxter, but also results in a departure of several series regulars, including Navia Robinson (Nia), Jason Maybaum (Levi), Sky Katz (Tess) and Anneliese van der Pol (Chelsea).
Raven's dad, Victor Baxter, has a mild heart attack, and Raven springs into action to take care of him. Along with Booker, she moves back to her hometown of San Francisco and lives with her dad, leaving Chelsea behind in Chicago, while her daughter Nia moves in with her dad.
Friday's episode of Raven's Home welcomed T'Keyah Crystal Keymáh as Raven's mother Tanya Baxter, marking the character's first on-screen appearance since Season 3 of That's So Raven back in 2005. (Keymáh left the show midway through its run to care for her grandmother, so Tanya was sent off to law school in London.)
Tanya Baxter becomes the ninth character to appear in both That's So Raven and Raven's Home following Raven Baxter, Chelsea Grayson, Devon Carter, Dr. Sleevemore, Victor Baxter, Alana Rivera, Leonard Stevenson and Donna Cabonna.
Raven's Home season 6 stars Raven-Symone as Raven Baxter, Issac Ryan Brown as Booker, Navia Robinson as Nia, Anneliese van der Pol as Chelsea, Kason Maybbaum as Levi, and Sky Katz as Tess.
She is the daughter of Raven's country cousin, Betty Jane and the granddaughter of Victor's country cousin, Delroy Baxter. She lives with Victor to attend Katherine Johnson Tech, a special school for geniuses. Alice now attends Johnson Tech Middle School, as a Sixth grader. She is portrayed by Mykal-Michelle Harris.
Beast Boy and Raven have a complex relationship until they start dating in "BBRAE", though they still remain on-and-off. For the most part, Raven appears constantly annoyed by Beast Boy's immaturity, while Beast Boy is attracted to Raven and frequently flirts with her.
Garrett was eventually arrested for tax evasion. This caused her to bring divorce proceedings against Garrett. After the divorced was finalized, Chelsea and Levi move to Chicago and begin living at 352 Hauser Avenue with her best friend and honorary sister Raven Baxter, also a divorced mother of twins.
THEN WHY DID THEY DIVORCE?! "They were high school sweethearts, but things change. People marry their high school sweethearts and then they grow up and things change and they get divorced and things are good because there's still friendship there," Raven explained.
Some time into their friendship Raven unknowingly used her powers to make Robin fall in love with her, and she thought she loved him romantically as well, but Starfire helped Raven see that they do both love each other, just not as lovers.
The Raven Queen is a mysterious being who rules the Shadowfell from an ice palace of deep within that dread realm. She watches over the world, anticipating each creature's death and ensuring that it meets its end at the proscribed time and place.
Something we noticed between the two is that Raven's primary color in the tv series is purple, and in the comics, it's blue. Even though they both wear blue, Raven is associated with the color purple a lot in the tv series.
As you've probably pieced together by now, several current cast members will not be returning for Season 5: Navia Robinson as Nia, Jason Maybaum as Levi, Sky Katz as Tess and Anneliese van der Pol as Chelsea. All four of those actors have been series regulars on the That's So Raven spinoff since it premiered in 2017.
As far as fans know, Anneliese Van Der Pol is not in season five of "Raven's Home" simply due to a change in the show's storyline.
Raven Baxter and her son Booker are moving back to San Francisco to help take care of her dad, Victor Baxter, after he suffers a minor heart attack. Booker's twin Nia is staying back in Chicago along with much of the original "Raven's Home" cast.
