When I heard that Lizzie McGuire was getting a reboot, I was ESTATIC to say the least. I loved that show growing up.


And although production was already underway, it crashed to a complete halt. There were many disagreements over what the show would be about and it caused it to come to a complete stop in the end.


Hilary Duff took to social media stating:

“I’ve been so honored to have the character of Lizzie in my life. She has made such a lasting impact on many, including myself. To see the fans’ loyalty and love for her, to this day, means so much to me. I know the efforts and conversations have been everywhere trying to make a reboot work but, sadly & despite everyone’s best efforts, it isn’t going to happen. I want any reboot of Lizzie to be honest and authentic to who Lizzie would be today. It’s what the character deserves. We can all take a moment to mourn the amazing woman she would have been and the adventures we would have taken with with her. I’m very sad, but I promise everyone tried the best and the stars just didn’t align. Hey now, this is what 2020s made of.”


The filming for this had already begun at the beginning of the year, and some episodes were even completed before everything got shut down due to Covid-19. But Disney wasn’t a fan of the more mature content that it entailed and shut the whole thing down.


“I am so proud of the two episodes we did,” Terri Minsky, the show’s creator told Variety. “Hilary has a grasp of Lizzie McGuire at 30 that needs to be seen. It’s a wonderful thing to watch. I would love the show to exist, but ideally I would love it if it could be given that treatment of going to Hulu and doing the show that we were doing. That’s the part where I am completely in the dark. It’s important to me that this show was important to people. I felt like I wanted to do a show that was worthy of that kind of devotion.”


As for now, Disney has shut everything down. Here’s hoping that someone else picks up the show…that is if Disney will release the rights for that. Just one more bad thing to add to 2020.
