The 30-year-old actress announced the move Thursday morning on "The View."

"I'm excited and sad, but mostly excited. I have an announcement to make," she said. "I've been working internally with the Disney company ... I used to do this show called 'That's So Raven,' and we're doing a 'That's So Raven 2.'"

Raven-Symoné, will star and serve as an executive producer for the spin-off, said that the show has not yet been officially named, but it is currently in development.

"There's no title yet, but I'm calling it 'That's So Raven 2,'" she said.

The spin-off centers around Baxter's life as a single mother of two children, one of whom has inherited the same psychic powers.

"Raven's brilliant style of fearless comedy was a driving force for Disney Channel's success around the world," Disney Channel Worldwide executive Adam Bonnett said in a statement. "Her performance in 'That's So Raven' is timeless. We now have our eyes on the future with her, and we're looking forward to telling more stories for a new generation with an adult Raven Baxter raising her young family."

Raven-Symoné said casting for the show will begin soon.

"We're going to be going around the country finding ... really good, talented females and males to be in the show," she said. "So anybody who wants to be on Disney Channel, there's going to be auditions soon for the 'That's So Raven' spin-off."

"That's So Raven" ran for four seasons and was the network's first series to hit the 100-episode mark before going off air in 2007. It's unclear when the spin-off will premiere.

Other nostalgia inducing shows have been making comebacks recently. Netflix has revived both "Full House" with the new "Fuller House" and "Gilmore Girls" with "Gilmore Girls: A Year in the Life," which premieres next month.

Disney Channel has also revived one of their own shows by bringing back "Boy Meets World" in the spin-off, "Girl Meets World."
