Hilary Duff started off her career as an actress and musician on Disney Channel. Her biggest role on the network was playing Lizzie McGuire in the popular television show with the same name.
“Lizzie McGuire” ran for two seasons on Disney from 2001 to 2004. When the show premiered in 2001, Duff was just 13 years old.
“I was too young to do a character dive on Lizzie. I think I was just playing myself. And I really related to that girl. She was me, and I was her, and that was that,” she told Bustle this year about playing the role at such a young age.
The show also had a spinoff movie in 2003 called “The Lizzie McGuire Movie” which is where one of Duff’s most popular songs to this day was first heard. The song “What Dreams Are Made Of” comes from the 2003 movie.
There was talk about bringing the show back years after its end. In 2019, Disney+ announced that there was going to be a spinoff “Lizzie McGuire” series starring Duff and the rest of the original cast, but in December 2020, Duff revealed that the show wasn’t every going to see the light of day even though there were two episodes recorded.
Duff announced the news of the show’s cancellation on her Instagram.
“I’ve been honored to have the character of Lizzie in my life. She has made such a lasting impact on so many, including myself,” she wrote. “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 continued to hint at why the reboot wasn’t working.
“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 her,” she explained.
