In 2017, Raven Symoné returned to Disney to star in the spin-off of “That’s So Raven.”Titled “Raven’s Home,”The show has been a huge success with four seasons. Fans were clearly happy to see Symoné back on television playing Raven Baxter and will be even more pleased to hear that Adrienne Bailon will be making an appearance during Season 5 as her character Alana Rivera, who was Raven’s school bully on “That’s So Raven.”Exclusively reported by TVLineThe upcoming season is going to be exciting as Alana, Raven’s principal at Bayside, is returning to San Fransisco as Raven’s father to care for Booker.
“I’ve always been hopeful about [playing Alana again], so to be able to make it happen was a dream come true,”Bailon spoke to the outlet. “I always love working with [Raven-Symoné]. We did the first ‘Cheetah Girls’ movie when I was 19, and now I’m 38, so we’ve stayed friends for almost 20 years. We laugh at the fact that we were playing the high school students… and now we’re playing the parents. It’s so bizarre!”
The president and chief creative officer for Disney Branded Television, Gary Marsh — who Bailon refers to as her “industry father” — left her feeling emotional after she was welcomed back to Disney with a letter and flowers. “I almost bawled my eyes out,”She said. “I was so happy to be back.”
