Is the Disney+ Lizzie McGuire Reboot Cancelled?

Say It Ain't So! Filming For Lizzie McGuire Reboot Has Been Put on Hiatus

LIZZIE MCGUIRE -

This is definitely not what dreams are made of! Disney+'s upcoming Lizzie McGuire reboot has halted production, Variety reports. "Fans have a sentimental attachment to Lizzie McGuire and high expectations for a new series," a Disney spokesperson told the publication. "After filming two episodes, we concluded that we need to move in a different creative direction and are putting a new lens on the show." As a result, the show's original creator Terri Minsky has stepped down as showrunner.

So, what exactly does this mean for the fate of the series? While production has been placed on hiatus as the show looks for a new showrunner, it doesn't entirely mean the show has been cancelled. However, it could delay the release date quite a bit. Filming first kicked off in November 2019, and Disney+ recently teased the show's release in a video that featured their upcoming 2020 titles.

As previously revealed, the reboot will "revolve around Lizzie as a 30-year-old millennial navigating life in New York City." In addition to Duff, the McGuire family — Jake Thomas, Hallie Todd, and Robert Carradine — will also be reprising their roles along with Adam Lamberg as Lizzie's childhood best friend Gordo. Here's hoping we'll be reunited with Lizzie and the rest of the gang soon enough!
