We are a little bit too excited about the Lizzie McGuire reboot, but the original show played such a huge part in our younger years so can you blame us? Lizzie was like the cool older sister we always wanted and now she is back to help guide us through adulthood.

Star of the hit Disney series, Hilary Duff opened up about the new show and it sounds like it is going to be better than ever before.

In an interview with E! News, Hilary dropped a couple of hints about the upcoming episodes.

She said, “I have said this before, but for me coming back when she's 30 and she's not in a marriage and she's not having a baby and she's not doing all the things that I have already done in my life, that story is really exciting for me.”

"I think to myself, where can we go? What are the struggles of a 30-year-old right now? What are the pressures that life throws in front of a woman who is 30 and doesn't have all the things yet? 

“And for me, that's Lizzie McGuire, she had those struggles in middle school where she didn't have a place where she fits in and you know always on the struggle bus, but she's also your best friend, and that's exactly what I want to target and hit home again—is being there for girls in this time of their life." 

The actress said there are endless opportunities for this new show. Could Lizzie become a mum or maybe she’ll face fertility struggles?

“Maybe there is something bad happening on her 30th birthday in the first episode? Maybe she's going to be in her childhood bedroom in the first episode? I don't know! There's all this fun! We want to give fans what they want, but we also want to have a completely new show,” she added.

The reboot is expected in 2020 on Disney's new streaming service, Disney+. 


We're all pure delighted over the news that Lizzie McGuire is returning to our screens in a reboot, but it's time to scope out what Hilary Duff's co-stars are currently up to.

The show will be shown on Disney's new streaming platform, Disney Plus, in 2020. Lizzie is now a 30-year-old trying to make a name for herself in Manhattan, and already we're hooked.

The original cast had a reunion in 2015, but Gordo was nowhere to be found. Miranda (Lalaine Vergara-Paras) and Matt (Jake Thomas) showed their faces, but not Adam Lamberg.


A post shared by  (@sirjakethomas) on

34-year-old Adam appeared in a couple of small indie movies following the end of Lizzie McGuire, such as When Do We Eat? and Beautiful Loser, but generally has gone off the grid.

Lamberg erased his social media accounts and stepped away from acting after that, and now Google autocorrects his name to Adam Lambert if you search for him.

Google have since fixed the awkward error, but Adam Lambert's successful pop career is far from similar to Adam Lamberg's life. He's living his best existence, working for New York's Irish Arts Centre.

After studying geography at UC Berkeley, he became a Development Associate at the arts centre, and has an MPA degree from NYC's Baruch College. 

The 'Where's Gordo?' hunt got so big that the Irish Arts Centre got involved in 2015, which is simply gas:

Lamberg said in a Tumblr chat a couple of years ago:

"Life is fantastic, though I constantly have too much time on my hands and am constantly struggling to find intriguing and creative ways with which to fill it. Other than that, very little to complain about… (Who am I kidding? I'm a New Yorker. We love to complain.)"

He seems to be surviving and thriving, but will Gordo be involved in the Lizzie McGuire reboot? We won't know until 2020 unfortunately…stay tuned.

In case you've been living under an early 2000s-sized rock, you're dying of excitement after hearing news of the Lizzie McGuire reboot. Yes, reboot. Because we're THAT old now. 

Hilary Duff confirmed recently that she will reprise her role as Lizzie McGuire in a Disney+ revival of the iconic show, which aired from 2001 until 2004. Three years, endless memories.

The now-31-year-old announced the news at the Disney D23 Expo, appearing on stage to reveal that our favourite 13-year-old will return as a 30-year-old interior designer apprentice in NYC.

Many of us also recall the Lizzie McGuire movie's ending, which featured a KISS between Lizzie and her longtime bestie Gordo. We predicted their eventual marriage and family, but we spoke too soon…

Gordo (played by Adam Lamberg) and the protagonist were deemed childhood sweethearts, but in the new show, 30-year-old Lizzie will be engaged to someone who ISN'T Gordo. That one hurt.

Remember when Gordo had to watch Lizzie ride off on a moped with Paolo in The Lizzie McGuire Movie and it broke our hearts? This is ten times worse than that. TEN TIMES.

Speaking to Vulture, Hilary revealed that their platonic friendship is “what was so good” about the show.

“You know what, I don’t know if I was as devastated by that. I feel like them not being together is what was so good.

“It’s that one person that you’re like, 'Was he the one? Is it ever going to be?' You’re always kind of wondering. We wanted it to hurt everyone a little bit, and it’ll continue to hurt."

"I really hope he’s going to be involved," she said. "We’ve been planning out the season and coming up with what everything looks like, and it’s so important for him to be there for part of it."

The upcoming series has yet to confirm if any cast members will return. He's currently working for New York's Irish Arts Center as a Development Associate, as far as we know. 

The sequel is expected to return in 2020 on Disney's new streaming service, Disney+. Irish prices are yet to be confirmed, but it's roughly six euro per month to steam from the channel.

Huge congratulations are in order for Hilary Duff who has announced her engagement to Matthew Koma.

The actress confirmed the news on her Instagram account by posting a photo of her and Matthew.

The mum couldn’t help but smile as she showed off her stunning ring.


A post shared by Hilary Duff (@hilaryduff) on

She captioned the snaps: “He asked me to be his wife.”

The duo have been on-off since early 2017. They briefly split up but reunited later that year.

Hilary and Matthew recently welcomed their first child together. The former Disney star gave birth to their daughter Banks Violet Bair on October 25.

Hilary is also a mum to six-year-old son Luca, who she shares with former husband Mike Comrie.

We couldn’t be happier for the lovebirds.


Lizzie McGuire was one of my fave after-school shows when I was a kid.

And Miranda Sanchez was the real MVP, in my humble opinion.

The side-kick to the sometimes-irritating Hilary Duff's Lizzie, Miranda was quick and funny and had a killer dress sense.

But it was all sunshine and roses behind the scenes as the actor who played her, Lalaine Vergara-Paras has revealed.

It always struck me as odd that in the credits her name only came up as 'LaLaine' with no surname.


A post shared by Lalaine (@thelalaine) on

This was due to racism in the TV industry and Lalaine has taken to Instagram today to reveal that she was forced to look white during her career.

She wrote, ''Most of my life growing up I was forced to look as ‘white’ as possible.''

The 31-year-old continued, ''These days I struggle to find photos where I look as ethnic as possible. Or like in this photo the most East Asian I’ve ever looked.”

She added, ''In order to see, for most people, you have to zoom in on ma face. And in case you still don’t understand, I love my face in this photo.''

Her fans applauded her brave words.

One said, ''Your ethnicity still shined through…even when forced to shine less…and is the main reason I watched the show. Always thought everything about you was beautiful af.''

While another wrote, ''I'm sorry you had to be something you weren't. But I am proud of who you are and what you are. May you never lose yourself in the societal demands of Hollywood.''

We think it's fantastic that she's spoken out – go Miranda.


Lizzie McGuire will forever be one of our favourite childhood shows. There are so many things we loved (and miss) about the popular Disney classic.

We adored everything from Lizzie, Miranda and Gordo’s friendship to her stunning family home that we often wished we grew up in.

The show was a staple during those awkward years where we experienced first crushes, first kisses, first breakouts and our first bra fitting.

Star of the show Hilary Duff recently revealed her favourite episode of the show and we have to agree with the actress on this one, it is without a doubt one of the best.

The Disney star revealed the episode where Lizzie and Miranda go shopping for bras for the first time holds a special place in her heart.

She explained to Today: “I definitely think that the bra episode is one that stands out in my brain as being like first of all, really wanting it, 'cause I thought a bra was cool, and then second of all, being like, ‘How am I gonna get that? I have to talk to my parents about that. That's gonna be the worst thing ever.’”

The Younger star explained that the episode resonated with her because she was going through a lot of similar experiences at the same time, just like most of the Lizzie McGuire viewers.

I'll  never forget the pure fear I felt when my mam dragged me to a bra fitting at Marks and Spencers. It’s such a cringe-worthy but empowering moment. You kind of feel like a grown up, but you can’t help but turn bright red when the sales assistant returns to your dressing room with an arm full of frilly pink bras.

Now, if anyone needs us we’ll be binge-watching Lizzie McGuire for the foreseeable future.


It is safe to say we all hold a special place in our hearts for The Lizzie McGuire Movie, and watch it pretty regularly (I regret nothing).

Among our favourite characters in this piece of cinematic GENIUS, was the loveable villain Paolo Valisari.

Actor Yani Gellman played the bold Paolo in the movie, and we were curious to see what he had been up to.

WELL, he has been a busy man…

Yani filmed The Lizzie McGuire Movie in 2003 (feel old yet?), and has been acting ever since.

One of his most memorable roles was actually in Pretty Little Liars, where he played officer Garrett Reynolds.

Yani also played bad boy graffiti artist Diego Flores in 90210, where he dated one of the main characters, Ivy.

All in all, time has been kind to the artist formerly known as Paolo.

Keep up the good work, man!  


It is amazing how scary music can COMPLETELY change the tone of a film!

We all remember how wonderfully corny and uplifting the Lizzie McGuire movie was, right?

WELL, try imagine if it was in fact a thriller, with a really dark story line… it's hard to do, we know.

One amazing YouTuber has done the work, changing the music in the trailer for Hilary Duff's greatest movie (too right), and all of a sudden, we're all a little uncomfortable. 

Elle Mills, the genius behind this video, re-imagined Paolo (teen heartthrob/ total spoofer) as a malicious villain with an extra-sinister agenda.

NOT what dreams are made of!

Clayton Snyder stole many hearts playing Ethan on Lizzie McGuire, and now the hunky actor is returning to our screens.

Not going too far away from his Lizzie family, Clayton is set to star in another Disney TV show called Second Star – and he's looking mighty fine in it.


GUYS!! I've been involved with a Disney XD project, Second Star, and it's going to be premiering on Maker TV this upcoming Tuesday, April 5, 4pm!! Here's a blurb from our Facebook page on what the show's about… "Second Star was created on the idea that a musical television show could employ quality radio-ready music, realistic character situations, and charming characters, while also exploring the relevant issues of life and growing up. Second Star does all that while also staying new and fresh every week, making it the perfect show for Disney XD." I play the oldest of three musically-inclined siblings who inherit their grandfather's recording studio, Second Star. With mom and dad out of the picture, I've been running a coffee shop to keep us afloat and keep us together. Family is everything… but so is music… And yes, I siiiing! It will help if you like the FB page (link in bio) and share with anyone else who may be interested! Thanks! Created by Richard Allen and co-starring Haley Michele Gorman @haleeymichele, Nickolas Eiter @nickolasmeiter, and Stephen Tyler Howell. #secondstar #disney #disneyxd #makertv

The actor took to Instagram to share his latest projects, and while we all fancied him as kids, we fancy him even more now that he's looking all dark and broody.

“I play the oldest of three musically-inclined siblings who inherit their grandfather’s recording studio, Second Star. With mom and dad out of the picture, I’ve been running a coffee shop to keep us afloat and keep us together. Family is everything… but so is music… And yes, I siiiing!" he said on IG.

It might be a kids show, but it sounds like good fun to us.


Hilary Duff has been making some waves on social media lately, mostly because of her unfortunate Tinder fail on live radio not too long ago.

In an interview Pride Source, the former child star, now mom to son Luca, has gotten candid about her relationship status and her old acting gigs.

Hilary has discovered that the usual Tinder method is a little bit more difficult when you’re a recognisable face. Shocker. She said that previous experience has given her a bit of a reality check; “I don't know what it's like to be a totally normal girl.”

She also noted including her Tinder experience in her Sparks video was because of her “strive for normalcy in my life every day.”

Not surprising seeing as she was just 14 when she starred in the Disney Chanel series Lizzie McGuire.

She revealed that being Lizzie has been “torturous” at some points in her life.

Evidently it can become a bit stressful when your life becomes your work: “the writers all knew me so well and were writing things that were happening in my life.”


A photo posted by Hilary Duff (@hilaryduff) on

Trying to shake her alter ego took longer than Hilary expected and she opened up about how that wasn’t always easy for her: “four years, five years after that – and I was still Lizzie McGuire to people and that was super annoying.”

It looks like she’s made peace with her past now though, and taking a break from the Hollywood scene is what she credits to her staying power. After years of touring and making films she says she almost lost sight of who she was, and needed a break to put things in perspective.

“At some point I was like, "I don't even know if I'm that person anymore, and I don't even have the time to figure that out." 

She seems to have it figured out by now, but she did not she wouldn’t like to a 14-year old in 2015: “I feel like even more so now than it was, your youth is totally taken away. You see these girls dressing like they're 20 when they're 14.”

Sounds like something Lizzie would say.. 


We never say no to a good real-life TV reunion, and this one definitely doesn't disappoint.

Disney Channel show Lizzie McGuire ended a decade ago this year, but the cast seem to be as friendly as ever, if this new picture is anything to go by.

Lalaine Vergara, who played Lizzie's BFF Miranda Sanchez, shared an aborable before-and-after picture of herself with actors Jake Thomas and Clayton Snyder, with the caption, "You’re welcome everyone. Circa 2005 and last night. Brother @heyclaytron, and brother @SirJakeThomas #FamBAM."

Clayton played Lizzie's HAWT (for a teen!) crush Ethan Craft, while Jake starred as her scheming younger brother Matt.

The show's lead Hilary Duff was sadly nowhere to be seen, as she is currently enjoying some downtime in Santa Barbara with her two-year-old son, Luca Cruz.

Surely Lalaine's picture will spur the cast on to organise a proper ten-year reunion? We have our fingers crossed!
