The highly anticipated “Lizzie McGuire” reboot has lost its showrunner.
TV writer Terri Minsky, who created the original Disney Channel series, has stepped down from her role on the new series for the Disney+ streaming service, Variety reports. The production is now on hiatus while a replacement is found.
“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,” a Disney spokesperson tells the outlet. “Fans have a sentimental attachment to ‘Lizzie McGuire’ and high expectations for a new series.”
In addition to being showrunner, Minsky was executive producing alongside series star Hilary Duff. A slew of cast members from the original Disney Channel series — which ran for two seasons from 2001 to 2004 — are lined up to return in the fresh take on the show, including Adam Lamberg, Hallie Todd, Robert Carradine and Jake Thomas.
The new show, announced by Duff in August 2019, began production in November. It was previously set to pick up as the title character gets ready to turn 30. Duff herself is 32, and currently on a safari honeymoon in South Africa with new hubby Matthew Koma.
