(ABC) – Raven-Symoné will be leaving “The View” to begin a new chapter of her eponymous series “That’s So Raven” for the Disney Channel.

The announcement was made today on “The View,” where Raven-Symoné has been a co-host since June 2015.

“I’m excited and sad, but mostly excited,” the 30-year-old former child star said on the show.

The untitled spin-off series will bring back her character Raven Baxter.

“I’m still me,” the actress said. “I’m a mother this time, a single mother raising two kids, and one is going to learn that she has visions.”

Raven-Symoné also expressed her sadness about leaving “The View” later this year to relocate to Los Angeles where the new sitcom is being developed.

“I’ve had such a great time,” she said, giving a shout-out to some of the crew members behind the scenes. “My experience has been multi-dimensional.”

Raven-Symoné will both star and executive produce the new series.

The original series, about a psychic teenager who tries her best to keep her psychic powers a secret, aired from 2003 to 2007 on the Disney Channel.
