Raven Symoné is leaving "The View," but she's got a major new project on deck.  Deets inside...

Our inner teen is freakin' ECSTATIC right now!  Remember "That's So Raven," the Disney show that further solidified Raven Symone as a super talented teen star? Well, it's coming back!

Raven just made a huge announcement on "The View"!  She will not only Executive Produce the new spinoff/extension show that she's calling "That's So Raven 2," but she'll be starring in it as well.

The original hit show, which centered around high school fashion-loving teen Raven Baxter, was on for 4 seasons and 100 episodes before wrapping in 2007.

In the original series, Raven Baxter navigated her premonitions, her best friends (played by Orlando Brown and Anneliese van der Pol), her hilarious family, and all the foolish situations she gets in and out of thanks to her "psychic visions."

Since the show will be shot with the Disney family in L.A., Raven announced she'll be leaving "The View" before the end of the year to relocate.  She has been appearing on the talk show mainly on Fridays only as she's been busily working on the new series.

Raven revealed much of the cast will return, and she will return as a divorced single mom to a son and daughter.  Her daughter has inherited Raven's gift of premonitions.  Auditions will be held soon for other roles on the show.  There is no premiere date set just yet.

Fun facts: "That's So Raven" was the highest-rated series in the history of Disney Channel, and one of the first four live action original series where the lead and most of the supporting main characters are minorities (The Famous Jett Jackson, Cory in the House, and K.C. Undercover are the others).

Between this and the Netflix return of "Gilmore Girls," the nostalgia is on extra status this year.  Here for it!
