Hilary Duff has announced some news about the Lizzie McGuire reboot that fans may not be too happy about.
In an interview with Vulture, the actress confirmed that Lizzie’s childhood best friend-turned-love interest, Gordo (Adam Lamberg) will not be by her side as the now 30-year-old takes on New York City in the Disney+ reboot.

“You know what, I don’t know if I was as devastated by that,” she confessed, explaining that their relationship always worked because it was purely platonic.
“It’s that one person that you’re like, ‘Was he the one? Is it ever going to be?'” she continued. “You’re always kind of wondering. We wanted it to hurt everyone a little bit, and it’ll continue to hurt. I really hope he’s going to be involved. We’ve been planning out the season and coming up with what everything looks like, and it’s so important for him to be there for part of it.”
Last month, Duff, 31, delighted fans by announcing a reboot of the cult TV show was in the works.
“The good news is, just like me and everybody who loved Lizzie and has grown up with her, Lizzie’s also grown up,” Duff said. “She’s older, she’s wiser, she has a much bigger shoe budget, which is super exciting. She has her dream job. She has kind of the perfect life right now.
“She’s working as an apprentice to a fancy New York City decorator,” said Duff. “She has her dream guy, who owns a cool SoHo restaurant. She has her dream apartment in Brooklyn. And she’s getting ready to celebrate her 30th birthday.”
