Hilary Duff gave fans an update on the Lizzie McGuire reboot that has been in the works, and it's not good. 

The actress posted the following statement on her Instagram to announce that the reboot was not happening: 

"I've been so honored to have the character of Lizzie in my life. She has made such a lasting impact on many, including myself. To see the fans' loyalty and love her her, to this day, means so much to me. I know the efforts and conversations have been everywhere trying to make a reboot work but, sadly & despite everyone's best efforts, it isn't going to happen. I want any reboot of Lizzie to be honest and authentic to who Lizzie would be today. It's what the character deserves. We can all take a moment to mourn the amazing woman she would have been and the adventures we would have taken with her. I'm very sad, but I promise everyone tried their best and the stars just didn't align. Hey now, this is what 2020s made of." 

Last year, Duff posted a behind-the-scenes photo of Lizzie reimagined as she worked on the project. 

Are you sad about the news? I was definitely looking forward to it but I'm not surprised it got canned, because 2020.
