It’s goodbye Chicago, hello San Francisco (again!) when Raven’s Home returns to Disney Channel for Season 5 on Friday, March 11 (8/7c).
TVLine has an exclusive first look at the sitcom’s new trailer, which finds Raven (Raven-Symoné) relocating to her childhood home from That’s So Raven, this time with son Booker (Issac Ryan Brown) in tow. Not only has that set been painstakingly recreated, but as you’ll see in the trailer, Raven’s Home is also taking us back to iconic haunts like Victor’s (Rondell Sheridan) restaurant the Chill Grill.
Unfortunately, returning home also means dealing with familiar faces Raven hoped she’d never see again, including childhood nemesis Alana (once again played by Adrienne Bailon-Houghton), who’s now the principal of Booker’s school.
“I’ve always been hopeful about [playing Alana again], so to be able to make it happen was a dream come true,” Bailon-Houghton told TVLine in November. “I always love working with Raven. 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!”
Other new additions to Raven’s Home in Season 5 include Mykal-Michelle Harris (mixed-ish) as Alice, Raven’s young cousin; Felix Avitia (Gamers Guide to Pretty Much Everything) as Neil, Booker’s new classmate and neighbor; and newcomer Emmy Liu-Wang as Ivy, another neighbor who also babysits Alice.

As previously reported, several cast members from previous seasons of Raven’s Home — Navia Robinson (Nia), Jason Maybaum (Levi), Sky Katz (Tess) and Anneliese van der Pol (Chelsea) — will not be back for Season 5.
