Raven-Symoné announces she's leaving 'The View'

Fox411: Raven Symone could be latest on the hot seat

 

Raven-Symoné is flying the "View” coop.

The co-host announced her departure during Thursday’s show.

"I'm excited and sad, but mostly excited. I have an announcement to make: No, I'm not pregnant," she joked.

She said she is wrapping up her time on the ABC chat show "before the year is up" in order to focus on a remake of her childhood Disney series.

Symoné starred on “That So Raven” from 2003 to 2007. She played a psychic teen.

"There's no title yet, but I'm calling it ‘That's So Raven 2'," she said. "It's Raven Baxter. It's still me. But I am a mother this time. I'm going to be a single mother raising two kids, and one of them learns that she has visions."

Whoopi says she probably won't return to 'The View' 

She said she has been working with Disney on the reboot, and it will begin casting soon. 

“We’re going to be going around the country finding those… really good, talented females and males to be in the show.”

Symoné's departure the latest in a series of cast shakeups that has plagued "The View" over the last several years.

Michelle Collins recently left the series, as did Rosie Perez and Nicolle Wallace. In 2014, icon Barbara Walters left the show and Rosie O'Donnell briefly stepped in but departed months later.
