Everything old is truly new again.
Those who grew up with the Disney Channel’s quirky Lizzie McGuire series starring Hilary Duff can rejoice as Disney+ will be bringing the series back with the original cast. Along with Duff, Hallie Todd, Robert Carradine and Jake Thomas are all coming back. Original series creator Terri Minsky will also be returning as the showrunner.
Disney+ describes the new series as: “Lizzie seemingly has it all — her dream job as an assistant to a fancy New York City decorator, her dream guy and a picturesque Brooklyn apartment — but things aren’t always as they seem. With a little help from her friends, her loving family and her 13-year-old alter ego in animated form, Lizzie navigates the ups and downs of adulthood.”
“Just like there is no Lizzie McGuire without Hilary Duff, there is no McGuire family without Hallie, Robert and Jake,” Gary Marsh, president and chief creative officer, Disney Channels Worldwide, said. “The original series holds a special place in the hearts of so many, and we can’t wait to introduce fans, both old and new, to an older, wiser, yet still perfectly imperfect Lizzie.”
No air date for the new series was announced.
