Hilary Duff Isn't Giving Up Hope on the 'Lizzie McGuire' Reboot

Hilary Duff isn’t giving up on Lizzie McGuire just yet.

Disney+ announced last August that they were reviving the hit Disney Channel series, but things have been rocky ever since.

The 32-year-old actress reprised her titular role as Lizzie and filmed two episodes before production was halted after original creator Terri Minsky left over creative differences.

Hilary then spoke out on social media to address the situation, saying that she hopes that Disney+ would let the Lizzie McGuire reboot be moved to Hulu so that they could explore more mature storylines on the show.

“It would be a dream if Disney would let us move the show to Hulu, if they were interested, and I could bring this beloved character to life again,” Hilary said at the time.

Now in a new interview, Hilary shared an update on the reboot.

“We are very much still in conversation with them a couple of times a week, which is really nice,” Hilary shared with E! News. “We started shooting, and then obviously that got on hold for a couple of different reasons not involving the pandemic. But you know what, I have high hopes that we are going to make it work.”

Hilary continued: “It’s like a responsibility to [Lizzie], honoring her and the fanbase that grew up with her. We kind of put her on pause, and had to go back to the drawing board, but I feel optimistic that it will happen.”

Just recently, the writers for the series had a video chat about the future of the show and the cast reunited for a virtual table read!
