2019 was the year of the TV reboot, but that doesn't mean that 2020 won't be filled with television blessings as well. Hilary Duff just announced that a Lizzie McGuire reboot is happening AKA THIS is what dreams are made of!
Fifteen years after the show last aired, a lot of things are bound to have changed in the lives of Lizzie, Miranda, and Gordo. So, what will the show be about and who will be returning? Here's everything we know about the show and what we can expect from Lizzie McGuire 2.0.
What will the Lizzie McGuire reboot be about?
While the show is currently paused for production, The Hollywood Reporter revealed what the show possibly be about if their original version actually was released. The first episode of the revival surrounded around the "existence of sex with cheating as a central plot point."
Although The Hollywood Reporter didn't reveal if Lizzie was the one who cheated or the one who was cheated on, it might make sense why Lizzie's ex, Gordo, would be back.
Is it happening?
This is where things get tricky. The show finished production on the first two episodes before things were shut down after Disney+ reviewed them. As of right now, Disney+ announced that they are still looking forward to moving on with the series and are currently in the process of finding a new showrunner. Meanwhile, Hilary Duff has asked the streaming service to move the series to Hulu to explore more adult topics, like the Love, Simon sequel series Love, Victor.
What is it going to be about?
Since the show went off air 14 years ago, by now Lizzie and her crew would be around 30, dealing with the trials and tribulations of early adulthood. Hilary, who gave birth to her second child a few months ago, has some ideas about what the reboot would be about, but motherhood isn't on the table, at least for now.
"I don't think she's a mom yet, but she might be getting there soon," she told Entertainment Weekly.
Who else will be in it?
Hilary is definitely in, we know that much. "I mean I love her so much," she told Entertainment Tonight. "I think she was so important to girls at an important time in their life. If she could be important to them again at this age, I think that would be amazing."
Meanwhile, Lizzie's family is also back and they all got together for a cute family pic with the first script in her new apartment.
Gordo is also back! While it's still under wraps why the two exes are reuniting, it's still nice to see the former BFFs together again!
