Hilary Duff will reprise her role as Lizzie McGuire

It's been 15 years since Hilary Duff starred in Disney Channel's Lizzie McGuire so this has been a long time coming.

The former child star took to Instagram to announce the news.

'I am beyond excited to be home again, back with my girl'

Hilary announced the news during a conference for D23.

She explains that her character is no longer in her teens but is now a 30-year-old woman.

Lizzie is living in New York, working her dream job as an apprentice decorator and is also dating the perfect man.

We're not sure whether her original co-stars Jake Thomas, Lalaine Vergara-Paras and Adam Lamberg will join her in the new series.

Lalaine and Adam played her bestfriends Gordo and Miranda.

While Jake played her younger brother Mike.

The Insider reports he was working in New York as a developmental associate at the Irish Arts Center in 2014.

His whereabouts since then is unknown.

Jake Thomas

Jake played Lizzie's little brother Mike in the programme.

This was his last major role but he has since appeared in many TV Shows.

It seems he now has a passion for photography.

The actress opened up about life after the show in an interview with the publication in 2017.

'I hold a job down to pay the bills, and I’ve been doing all these random little projects.'

'[My life used to consist of] craziness and nonstop everything, and, when I was a kid, not really knowing what a kid’s life was.'
