The saga of 30-something Lizzie McGuire has reached an upsetting conclusion.
After production on the reboot of the beloved Disney Channel show was halted in February and star Hilary Duff voiced her hopes that Disney+ would allow the series to move to Hulu, fans awaited updates.
Ten months later, Duff hammered the final nail in modern Lizzie’s (likely bespoke) coffin. On Wednesday afternoon, the former Disney star announced that the reboot “isn’t going to happen.”
“I’ve been so honored to have the character of Lizzie in my life,” the actress wrote on Instagram. “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.”
Duff went on to say that she was committed to making the character’s return “honest and authentic,” and, implicitly, the reboot that was in production wouldn’t have allowed that.
“We can all take a moment to mourn the amazing woman she would have been and the adventures we would have taken with her. I’m very sad, but I promise everyone tried their best and the stars just didn’t align. Hey now, this is what 2020s made of.”
OK, but will we ever find out what Lizzie was doing with that alpaca? We just want answers.
