Is Lizzie McGuire coming back? Recently, creator Terri Minsky spoke with The Wrap about rebooting the Disney Channel TV series.
The sitcom starred Hilary Duff as Lizzie McGuire, an average teen dealing with her friends, family, and school. The cast also included Lalaine, Adam Lamberg, Jake Thomas, Hallie Todd, and Robert Carradine. The show ran on Disney Channel between 2001 and 2004.
In the interview, Minsky revealed she’d love to revive Lizzie McGuire:
I would do it in a heartbeat. But it’s not up to me. Somebody else has to want to do it and make it happen, but I certainly try to let the involved parties know, ‘if anybody’s interested, hi!’ I would absolutely do it.”
Later, she said Duff’s character on the TV Land series Younger could be Lizzie:
She still looks like Lizzie McGuire to me in this role. The fact that she is this cool, fashionable, intelligent executive, it all makes sense to me, and the only thing missing is the little animated character telling us what’s really going on inside her head.”
Minsky’s new series, Andi Mack, debuts on Disney Channel on April 7th.

Though now with a more interesting aspect of her being a well-known star (potentially) and I think it would have been interesting to see how she would deal with that. Though to be honest, at this point I don’t know if it would capture the same audience as it would have back then. Times have changed and people’s attentions are kind of short. The show dealt with issues that were more relatable to teens going through school and dealing with understanding… Read more »
