    ‘Lizzie McGuire’ Sequel Series Starring Hilary Duff Set At Disney+ From Creator Terri Minsky & Disney Channel



    One of Disney Channel’s biggest hits, Lizzie McGuire, is coming back with a revival at the upcoming streaming platform Disney+. Hilary Duff is set to reprise her title role in the new series, which comes from the original series’ creator Terri Minsky. It is the first project under a new overall deal Minsky has signed with Disney Channel.

    Gary Marsh, President and Chief Creative Officer for Disney Channels Worldwide, is expected to talk about the series during the Disney+ presentation at the D23 Expo this afternoon.

    Duff is in a series regular on Darren Star’s hit TV Land comedy series Younger, which was recently renewed for a seventh season. Under a waiver granted by TV Land/Viacom, Duff will be able to do both Younger and Lizzie McGuire.



    Minsky’s original Lizzie McGuire, starring Duff as 13-year-old Lizzie who is trying to fit in and be popular, was a runaway global hit that turned Duff into a teen idol and a triple-platinum-selling music artist. The sitcom, which aired for four seasons, quickly became Disney Channel’s highest-rated series. It spawned a successful feature, The Lizzie McGuire Movie starring Duff, which grossed $55 million at the global box office, and music releases. It also launched Disney’s first consumer products based on a live-action tween TV series that have earned hundreds of millions of dollars for Disney.

    Plans for expansion of the Lizzy McGuire franchise, which included a second movie and an ABC comedy series starring Duff as Lizzie in high school, came to an abrupt halt in 2003 when negotiations between the young actress and Disney fell through.

    In the past several years, Duff had indicated in interviews that she would be open to a possible Lizzie McGuire reboot or reunion. It is unclear yet whether any other original cast members would return for the new installment. You can watch Duff’s video announcement on Instagram below.

    I am curious for this, not really excited yet. Like on one side it will be fun to see a grown Lizzie, on the other side it will be hard to touch something that is still seen as an iconic show.
