Bad News 'Lizzie Mcguire' Fans, the Disney+ Reboot Has Been Put on Hold
The show’s creator, Terri Minsky, has stepped down from her role.
After receiving a first look at the upcoming Lizzie McGuire Disney+ reboot, Variety has reported that the TV show‘s creator Terri Minsky is stepping away from her role as showrunner, causing an indefinite delay to the series. A Disney representative said:
“Fans have a sentimental attachment to Lizzie McGuire and high expectations for a new series. 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.”
Production started last November 2019 and revealed that Hilary Duff, Hallie Todd, Robert Carradine, Jake Thomas and Adam Lamberg will reprise their original roles in the series. However, due to Minsky’s midway departure, the revival has currently been placed on hiatus and a replacement showrunner has not yet been named.
