15 years after the series wrapped, Hilary Duff has taken to social media to announce she is reprising her role as Lizzy McGuire. The sequel will see our favourite butterfly hairclip, tie dye tee, and tiny tinted sunglasses-wearing character return to our small screens as a 30-year-old millennial navigating life in New York City.

Also, If you needed yet another reason to get Disney+ ....the #lizziemcguiremovie will be living there!
Duff, who is mum to seven-year-old son Luca and nine-month old daughter Banks, wrote on Instagram, “SURPRISE!!! I’ve been trying to contain this excitement for a loooong time while this has been in the works! I am beyond excited to be home again, back with my girl...and into her 30’s.”
The original series, which ran from 2001 to 2004 and was created by Terri Minsky, followed 13-year-old Lizzie, who dreamt of being popular in school. Much like the sitcom from the early noughties, the reboot will also see her animated alter ego popping up from time to time, helping narrate the story.
The show was later made into a 2003 film, The Lizzie McGuire Movie, where Lizzie went on a trip of a lifetime to Rome, Italy, following her 8th-grade graduation and got mistaken for an international pop star.
Roll on November!
