The hosting chair roulette at ABC’s “The View” continues, with Raven-Symone announcing Thursday that she is leaving the show.
Her last day is not yet determined but will be before year’s end.
The actress-turned-talk-show-co-host will return to her sitcom roots and to Los Angeles, where she will executive produce and star in a spinoff series based on her Disney Channel comedy “That’s So Raven.”
In the spinoff, the now grown-up Raven Baxter will be a newly divorced mother raising preteens. The original sitcom ran from 2003-2007 and featured Raven as a teenager with psychic abilities. Subsequently, the new show will feature one of Raven’s children who begins to develop the same supernatural powers.
The co-host’s exit from “The View” is a new wrinkle in several years’ worth of musical chairs at the daytime talk show.
“Good Morning America” weekend anchor Sara Haines was added as a new co-host, in August.
Haines’ addition had been a topic of speculation since June, shortly after Collins was given the boot, and Raven-Symone‘s departure has been rumored in recent months as well.
