Lizzie McGuire is back: The Disney Channel hit is getting a revival on Disney+, with Hilary Duff returning to star as the title character, our sister site Deadline is reporting.
Duff will play a now-30-year-old Lizzie, making a life for herself in New York City. The series will also bring back the animated Lizzie from the original, who voices the human Lizzie’s innermost feelings and fears. Original creator Terri Minsky will return to produce the new series as well. (The original Lizzie McGuire ran from 2001 to 2004 on Disney Channel, and spawned a big-screen movie in 2003.)
Lizzie McGuire joins a growing slate of Disney+ original series, including Star Wars spinoff The Mandalorian and Marvel series featuring Loki and Hawkeye. The new streaming service — which will cost $6.99 a month and also include library content from Disney, Pixar, Marvel and more — launches on Tuesday, Nov. 12.
TVLine hears that Disney+ episodes will be released on a weekly basis, versus the all-at-once “binge” model.
Duff is currently co-starring as book publisher Kelsey Peters on the TV Land comedy Younger, which was renewed last month for a seventh season — but Deadline reports that Disney+ and TV Land have worked out a deal that will allow Duff to appear in both series.
Lizzie McGuire fans: Want to know what Lizzie’s up to these days? Tell us in the comments if you’ll be watching.
Lizzie and Gordo better be married, my childhood OTP. Nuff said.
Yessssss! Gordo and Lizzie forever!
Yes!!! or at least get back together and get married on the show!
WIth this and the fact that Nico Tortorella has joined the new TWD spin-off, I’m pretty sure Younger’s 7th season is gonna be its last.
They can so both shows. They’ve both been confirmed
Now Nickelodeon has to bring back Zoey 101
Isn’t this just Younger?
Hey now! Hey now! This is what dreams are made of!
My sister will be thrilled with this news.
I’d like to see Nickelodeon update Clarissa Explains it All…
I’m all for this! <3
Sorry for what you’re about to read…OMGOMGOMGOMGOMGOMGOMGOMGOMGOMG YASSSSSS!!! Again, so sorry about that, I feel like a kiddo right now 💃🏼
It would be awesome if some others from the original cast showed up. I really don’t see Lalaine coming back though. Hopefully Adam Lambert and Jake Thomas do.
I think you mean Adam Lamberg. Adam Lambert is the singer from American Idol. LOL.
Yes! That was totally auto correct. It would be great if Adam Lambert made an appearance too though. Lol
Now let’s bring back Even Stevens! Who’s with me???
As great as that would be I don’t see that happening. No way would Shia do it. Christy sure, but not Shia.
Love her, can’t stand her sister.
I loved watching Lizzy McGuire growing up. I’m totally going to watch the revival.
FREAKING OUT!!!!!!!! OMG and if they could work in Gordo, I could be happy for EVER.
