It's unclear as to why Terri has stepped down however, her departure has put a spanner in the works.

A Disney spokesperson tells Variety, 'Fans have a sentimental attachment to Lizzie McGuire and high expectations for a new series.'

The spokesperson explains, 'After filming two episodes, we concluded that we need to move in a different creative direction and are putting a new lens on the show.'

Variety reveals, 'A new show-runner has not yet been named.'

The show will follow now 30-year-old millennial Lizzie as she navigates life in the Big Apple.

But while some things have changed, others remain and animated Lizzie will return to offer her always hilarious commentary.
