This is not a drill: Hilary Duff will be reprising her role as Lizzie McGuire in a series reboot!
Disney and Hilary Duff herself confirmed the news at a public event, where it was announced that a grown-up version of our favorite childhood show will be released on Disney’s new streaming service, Disney+.
Set a little over 10 years since we last saw her on TV as a junior high school student, the series now follows Lizzie as a more self-assured 30-year-old in New York City, navigating through life with a dream job as an interior decorator apprentice, with a dreamy restaurateur boyfriend. The show is described to feature Lizzie as “older, wiser, and [with] a bigger shoe budget.”
Hilary also confirmed the news on Instagram. She wrote: “SURPRISE! I’ve been trying to contain this excitement for a long time while this has been in the works! I am beyond excited to be home again, back with my girl, and into her thirties.” Based on the plot, it definitely sounds like a new show to binge-watch!
The show comes as amazing news for fans of the original, most of whom have grown up with Hilary. And in case you needed more nostalgia, Hilary further confirmed in an interview that animated Lizzie will be back—with the same outfit! So cute!
