Disney+: The McGuire’s Are Back!

The McGuire’s are back! We’re 18 days away from launch day and the word is out. Hilary Duff, Hallie Todd, Robert Carradine, and Jake Thomas have officially reunited and are set to reprise their roles as Lizzie, Jo, Sam, and Matt McGuire for the new streaming service. The last time we left one of our favorite Disney Channel families, they were in Rome. The year was 2003 and Lizzie would have come back home as a high school freshman. Well, we’ve got good news for you, Lizzie McGuire fans. Stars Hilary, Hallie, Robert, and Jake have recently had their first read-through in 15 years! You can see the reunion picture below. Showrunner Terri Minsky is also back on the helm.

“Just like there is no Lizzie McGuire without Hilary Duff, there is no McGuire family without Hallie, Robert, and Jake. The original series holds a special place in the hearts of so many, and we can’t wait to introduce fans, both old and new, to an older, wiser, yet still perfectly imperfect Lizzie.”

In the new show, Lizzie will be almost 30, living in New York City, and working as an assistant to a decorator. It may feel like she has it all but not everything will be as it seems. Is the new show on your watch list? Let us know in the comments below! Disney+ will officially launch for users on November 12th. A series premiere date has not been released yet but we’ll keep you updated when it gets announced.
