There looks to be some issues with the new revival of “Lizzie McGuire” for Disney+, as according to Variety, the shows creator, Terri Minsky, is stepping away from her role as the showrunner on the show.   Disney spokesperson made a statement regarding the change:

“Fans have a sentimental attachment to ‘Lizzie McGuire’ and high expectations for a new series.  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.”

This has led to production on the show going into hiatus while Disney looks to get a new showrunner for the Disney+ series.  Currently actress, Hilary Duff is away on vacation with her husband, Matthew Koma, in Mozambique on their honeymoon.  So this might give Disney a little time to organize a replacement.

The new story picks up as Lizzie McGuire is just about to turn 30. She seemingly has it all – her dream job as an assistant to a fancy New York City Interior Designer, her dream guy and a picturesque Brooklyn apartment – but things aren’t always as they seem. With a little help from her old friends and some new ones to come, her well-meaning family and her 13-year-old alter-ego in animated form, Lizzie navigates the ups and downs of adulthood.

As previously announced, also reprising their roles are: Hilary Duff as Lizzie McGuire, Hallie Todd as Jo McGuire, Robert Carradine as Sam McGuire and Jake Thomas as Matt McGuire.

Hilary Duff and Rachel Winter will also executive-produce. Ranada Shepard is the co-executive producer. “Lizzie McGuire” is produced by Salty Pictures, Inc. in association with Disney Channel.

What do you think of the show continuing with a new showrunner?
