LOS ANGELES (Zap2it.com) The Disney Channel has greenlit a fourth season of its top-rated series "That's So Raven" -- the first time the network has gone beyond three years for one of its shows.
Production on the new season, which will also see the show's 19-year-old title star take a producer credit, is set to begin next month, according to The Hollywood Reporter. By the time it's finished, "Raven" will have reached 100 episodes, another first for a Disney Channel show.
In the past, the network has opted to end production of series after 65 episodes. "That's So Raven" has already surpassed that mark, thanks to an extended third season that continues this summer.
In addition to a fourth season of the show, Disney Channel also plans to produce a "Raven" original movie, which would likely air in 2007. The channel is also looking at the possibility of a sequel to "The Cheetah Girls," which starred Raven and aired in 2003.
In addition to her own show, Raven has done voice work on another Disney Channel series, "Kim Possible."
