Raven’s fans are surely having a good time following the interesting spin-off of the Disney show, That’s So Raven.

The Raven’s Home spin-off features grown-up Raven who is now a mother. Raven and her best friend, Chelsea, find out that she passed on her psychic traits to her son, Booker. This makes life becomes even more ‘interesting’ as they have to handle her son’s psychic abilities.
