It looks like Raven’s Home is staying in tact over at the Disney Channel!

The network officially announced on Tuesday (October 10) that it has decided to renew That’s So Raven spinoff, Raven’s Home, for a second season.

Since it premiered back in July, Raven’s Home has raked in some pretty impressive viewing numbers, so it makes sense that Disney is looking to keep Raven in the family.

The new series centers around besties Raven and Chelsea who are all grown up and living together under the same roof as single mothers. Much like the original series, which aired on the Disney Channel from 2003 to 2007, things get a little crazy when Raven’s son, Booker, suddenly realizes he can gaze into the future.

Raven’s still got her psychic super powers, but neither Booker nor Raven know they both share the same ability.

The result has made for some pretty funny moments on the series so far — especially with two psychics living under one roof in a very crowded house. We’re sure the trend of hilarious mishaps is bound to continue when the series comes back for round two.

The first season of the series is set to wrap with episode 13 (titled “Vest in Show”) which is set to air on October 20. The good news is, we expect Disney won’t make us wait long for all new episode of the hit family comedy.

Deadline reports that the studio is looking to resume production on the series as early as next month, so we’re sure Raven fans are hoping that means we’ll get season 2 sooner rather than later!

Are you looking forward to see how Disney kicks things up a notch when the series returns for season 2? Let us know in the comments below!

Raven’s Home airs Fridays at 8 p.m. on the Disney Channel.

Quentin Tarantino says he knew about Harvey Weinstein’s behavior: ‘I knew enough to do more than I did’

In a new interview with The New York Times, director Quentin Tarantino — whose films have largely been distributed by The Weinstein Company — admits he knew how Harvey Weinstein treated women.

Earlier this month The Times and The New Yorker published bombshell reports revealing horrific behavior by TWC founder Harvey Weinstein. The reports — and the revelations that came in the days after — rocked Hollywood.

Tarantino remained silent until Thursday’s interview. In it, he tells The Times he “knew enough to do more than I did.”

“It was more to it than just the normal rumors, the normal gossip. It wasn’t secondhand. I knew he did a couple of these things,” Tarantino said, referencing the stories recently shared by “prominent” actresses.

“I wish I had taken responsibility for what I heard. If I had done the work I should have done then, I would have had to not work with him.”

Tarantino admits that he can offer nothing but a “crappy” excuse at this point. Even though he heard stories about his business partner on multiple occasions, he “chalked it up to a ’50s-’60s era image of a boss chasing a secretary around the desk. As if that’s O.K. That’s the egg on my face right now.”

The director, whose most recent film The Hateful Eight was distributed by The Weinstein Company, says that he tried to reach out to the disgraced Hollywood mogul after the reports were published, but Weinstein didn’t pick up. More of Tarantino’s remarks can be read over on The Times’ website.

As more women share their stories, Hollywood is starting to take (some) action. Last week The Weinstein Company fired their founder, and The Academy voted to remove him from their ranks.

Explaining their vote to expel him, The Academy said in a statement, “We do so not simply to separate ourselves from someone who does not merit the respect of his colleagues but also to send a message that the era of willful ignorance and shameful complicity in sexually predatory behavior and workplace harassment in our industry is over. What’s at issue here is a deeply troubling problem that has no place in our society.”
