The "Lizzie McGuire" reboot is officially dead, Hilary Duff has confirmed.

"I know the efforts and conversations have been everywhere trying to make a reboot work, but sadly it isn't going to happen," Duff, 33, announced on Instagram on Wednesday. "Hey now, this is what 2020 is made of," she added, quoting her famous song.In August 2019, news of the reboot was announced at the D23 Expo. The Dinsey+ series was going to feature an adult Lizziein her 30s, navigating a career "as an apprentice to a fancy New York City decorator," dating "the perfect man" and dealing with more "adult" themes.The show, which began filming last year, was set to star the original actors from the beloved 2000s Disney Channel series. But it ended up being halted when Lizzie McGuire creator and revival showrunner Terri Minsky departed the show due to creative differences with Disney on which direction the character should take, Variety reported.Duff said her hopes had been that any reboot of the series would be "honest and authentic to who Lizzie would be today."
