The revival of the Lizzie McGuire series is not moving forward. Via Instagram, Hilary Duff on Wednesday informed her followers that plans for a revival of her sitcom have been cancelled. But, the series could still return at a later date.
The original Lizzie McGuire series aired on the Disney Channel between 2001 and 2004 with 65 episodes of the series produced. The comedy follows the adventures of teenage Lizzie (Duff) and her friends. Lalaine, Adam Lamberg, Jake Thomas, Hallie Todd, and Robert Carradine joined Duff on the series, and all except for Lalaine were set to return for the revival.
Duff, and creator Terri Minsky, were both hoping to bring a more adult Lizzie series to the small screen, but it is being reported that Disney wanted a family-friendly revival to air on Disney+. Duff asked that the series be moved to Hulu, but that did not happen.
Check out her full statement from Instagram below.
