Hilary Duff just confirmed that a 'Lizzie McGuire' reboot is on the way
If you had the honour of growing up during the Noughties, you'll be well acquainted with Hilary Duff. A mainstay of the Disney Channel, Duff was the perfect antidote to Mary-Kate and Ashley Olsen and their never-ending European adventures. Certainly, whether she was portraying Lizzie McGuire or Sam from A Cinderella Story, Duff's characters were always relatable to the 14-year-old experience.
And now, we have a chance to meet one of our favourite characters again. While speaking about Younger season 2 during an interview with Entertainment Tonight, Hilary Duff just revealed that a Lizzie McGuire reboot may just be in the works.
"You recently said that you would love to revisit Lizzie McGuire," the reporter said to Duff. "It's been 15 years since the movie came out...have there been any conversations?"
"Yes, yes! There have been conversations," Duff replied. "It's definitely not a go, I don't want to get everyone wild talking about it but yeah, I love [Lizzie McGuire] so much and I think that she was so important to girls at an important time in their life, and if she could be important to them again at this age...I think that would be amazing."
So while we shouldn't get too excited just yet, it's certainly a good sign that the Lizzie McGuire is on board.

In other news, Duff just gave birth to her second child with boyfriend Matthew Koma.
Hilary and Matthew took to social media to announce that they had welcomed a baby girl back in October, and revealed the newborn's unique name: Banks Violet Bair.
Now, if you're scratching your head and asking yourself who Hilary's boyfriend, Matthew Koma, is... well, same. According to the internet, he's a singer, songwriter, and producer - but most importantly - Hilary's mum loves him.
In a recent interview with E News, the actress shared that her mum was all for their relationship: "My mom was at Matt's birthday and she was like, ‘I just love him. I love him so much. He's the best.' I'm like, 'I'm here. I exist, you know? You're always on my side!'" she said.
But not only that, they've had their fair share of problems, and they're honest about it. During her appearance on The Talk in December, Hilary revealed that she and Koma have broken up twice in the past, and she attributed both splits to bad timing.
"I think that you have history and a past with someone and love, and just because it doesn’t work out the first time, the second time,” the Younger star explained. "As long as there’s not too much damage done, then, it can always work out again."
So while 2017 may have been a challenging year for the couple, it seems like everything's been peachy ever since. As Hilary joked on the show, "Third time's the charm!"
And a new baby sure can't hurt, either.
