During Disney's D23 Expo today, Disney+ announced a series order for a sequel series to the hit Disney Channel original series Lizzie McGuire with Hilary Duff set to reprise her title role. An episode count and premiere date window were not immediately announced.

The new series will revolve around Lizzie as a 30-year-old millennial navigating life in New York City.
