Hilary Duff’s Lizzie McGuire revival put on hold as original creator Terri Minsky exits the Disney Plus show

Just days after teasing the highly-anticipated Lizzie McGuire revival in a Disney Plus trailer, the show is being put on hold.

Original series creator Terri Minsky, who had signed on to return as showrunner for the revival, has stepped down from the series, according to Variety

A new showrunner has not been named, with a spokesperson revealing that two episodes of the series have already been filmed.

‘Fans have a sentimental attachment to Lizzie McGuire and high expectations for a new series,’ said a Disney spokesperson. 

‘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,’ the spokesperson added.

Production has been put on hiatus as the streaming service searches for a new showrunner.

The original series ran from 2001 to 2004 with two seasons spanning 64 episodes, following Duff’s McGuire as a teenager.

The series also starred Adam Lamberg as Gordo, who was also confirmed to return in November, though it isn’t known if other series regulars like Lalaine are returning.

The original series also spawned 2003’s The Lizzie McGuire Movie, which grossed $55.5 million worldwide from a $17 million budget.
