'Lizzie McGuire' Revival Series Put On Hold, Disney+ Looking for New Creative Direction

Lizzie McGuire fans will have to wait a little longer for the revival series to premiere on Disney+ as the show has been put on hold.

Terri Minsky, the creator of the original series and showrunner of the revival series, is stepping down from her role and Disney+ is looking to hire a new showrunner to take the show in a different creative direction.

Hilary Duff and the cast had already filmed two episodes for the upcoming revival series, but Disney+ confirms that show will get a “new lens.”

“Fans have a sentimental attachment to Lizzie McGuire and high expectations for a new series,” a Disney spokesperson told Variety. “After filming two episodes, we concluded that we need to move in a different creative direction and are putting a new lens on the show.”
