Lizzie McGuire fans rejoice! Hilary Duff is back on the set of the iconic noughties series and looking just like her teenage character - only a little more grown up.
In a photo shared on Instagram on Thursday, the actress is reunited with her BFF Gordo, played by Adam Lamberg, and is seen leaning back on him like old times.
Her blonde fringe is back, and she’s dressed in a tie-dye green top and cut-off jeans, making for a very retro look.
In a video shared by Disney Plus, Hilary says, “I’m so excited to be back, I’m so excited for you guys to come along on this journey with Lizzie.”
She later took to her own Instagram stories during a lunch break from filming with a more personal message to her fans.
Explaining that she’d just seen her 13-month-old daughter Banks go down for a nap over a baby monitor, the mum confessed that not being with her baby was making her heart hurt.
“Shout out to all the working mums out there hustling and doing what you can for your family and showing your kids what hard work and strength is,” she said.
“Shout out to the nannies taking care of our babies when we cannot... and that’s my little thought for right now, my heart’s hurting a little bit.”
The new Lizzie McGuire series, which will air on new subscription service Disney Plus, picks up 15 years after the finale left off and will see the whole family return.
Lizzie’s mum Jo, (Hallie Todd), dad Sam (Robert Carradine) and brother Matt, (Jake Thomas) have all been seen reading scripts, but we’ve yet to see them transform into their old roles.
Hilary will be playing Lizzie a decade or two later than we last saw her and the series will follow the now-30-year-old as she makes her way in the hustle and bustle of New York City as an apprentice for a big-shot decorator.
For those worried that the series may stray too far from our beloved original, have no fear, not only is the original series’ creator Terri Minsky behind the reboot, but cartoon Lizzie is also in for the project.
