The original show premiered in 2001, starring Hilary Duff as the title character, Lizzie McGuire herself.
Key features of the sitcom include young Lizzie navigating the teenage years of her life, with the help of her inner soliloquised monologue of course, the animated Lizzie.
13-year-old Lizzie faces all of your typical teenage issues, with everything from the popularity contest that is school, to wanting a closer relationship with members of her family.
2020 is set to look a lot brighter for Lizzie McGuire fans, however, with the announcement last year of a Lizzie McGuire revival show.
Fast forwarding a good 15 years, we’ll see Lizzie living the dream in New York City, soon to be turning 30.
The few seconds of the new trailer show the return of the titular character as Lizzie walks up to a car window before leaning in to say “Hi, it’s me.”
Talk about a teaser trailer…

ho is in the car waiting? Will we be reintroduced to the animated Lizzie who tells us the character’s most inner thoughts? Is living in NYC all it’s cracked up to be?
Other than seeing grown up Lizzie in New York, we’re unsure as to what will happen on the next stage of her journey.
I’m excited to find out.
In a YouTube video for Entertainment Weekly, actress Hilary Duff provided details about the reboot, which you can watch in full below:
Duff starts off recalling the initial reaction to the idea of a proposed reboot:
“The conversations had gone on for a couple of years, and the timing just didn’t seem right.
“Now, Lizzie is turning thirty […], she was everybody’s best friend and she was there for such pivotal moments in their pre-teen life.”
Explaining the importance of the show’s focus on Lizzie’s next life-stage, Duff says:
“Entering your thirties is a really big deal, and I think it’s the right time for her to step back in and to have her go along with you in your thirties, and all of the fun times and all of the big monumental moments and all of the challenges that you’re faced with, and I just thought there was such opportunity there…”
It’s like my childhood all over again…
