This is the first Disney Channel show to have a spin-off series, which is Cory in the House (2007).
One of Raven's favorite singers on the show, Pressure, played by Kevontay Jackson, is a parody of Usher.
The original name for the main character was Dawn Baxter, and the show was originally named 'The Future Is on Me.' However, they changed the main character's name to Rose Baxter, and the show was called 'Absolutely Psychic.' Eventually, the show was finally called 'That's So Raven.'
This is one of Disney's most successful shows, earning over $100 million in merchandise, and passing the 65 episode limit. It's the second longest-running show on Disney, right behind Wizards of Waverly Place (2007).
In a 2007 interview, Anneliese van der Pol stated that Chelsea's original name was Emma. Also, that the roles of Raven and Chelsea were switched, so that Chelsea was the psychic.
Anneliese van der Pol didn't get the part of Chelsea Daniels at the very beginning back when it was still named 'Absolutely Psychic'. While in the audition room for the pilot, Raven stated she would rather play best friends with her than the other actress the producers picked, helping Anneliese get the part.
Raven's mother, Tanya, was written off the show in its fourth season by saying she had moved to England to attend law school. The reason behind that is that actress T'Keyah Crystal Keymáh had a grandmother who had Alzheimer's and her busy schedule wasn't allowing her much time to take care of her, so Keymáh decided to leave.
Maisha (played by Debra Wilson) is one of Raven's favorite singers on the show. She is a parody of Moesha, originally played by Brandy Norwood.

She stated that the experience was very traumatic for her and the repulsing faces she's making while holding the snake are real.
In an interview with the African American Literature Book Club, Raven-Symone was asked if she ever sensed her "psychic abilities" she portrays in the show in real life. Raven replied , "Yes, I have. I don't really like to talk about it too much, because it's a little personal for me. But I'm a very spiritual person, and I believe that there are amazing special gifts that people are blessed with. It just depends on whether you want to listen or not."
