One of Disney Channel's biggest sitcoms from the start of the millennium, Lizzie McGuire, is making a comeback on the Disney+ streaming service, and its lead actress, Hilary Duff, is confirmed as returning, too.
The project was announced at Disney's D23 Expo in Anaheim, California, where a new logo for the show was also shown. Although the first series was a slice-of-life comedy about the life of a middle schooler, the sequel will revolve around Lizzie as a thirty-something living in New York City.
In addition to Duff, original creator Terri Minsky is attached to the new series as showrunner. That said, it is unclear at this time who else from the original show will appear in the sequel.
This isn't the first time Disney has shown interest in bringing back Lizzie McGuire. In the early 2000s, there were plans to develop an ABC primetime spin-off of the show with Duff reprising her role, but the series ultimately fell through. Another spin-off focused on Miranda Sanchez's younger sister, Stevie (Selena Gomez), would have seen that family move to Australia, but it also did not get picked up.
At this time, the show's premiere date and episode count have not been released.
