Will Paolo Be In The ‘Lizzie McGuire’ Reboot? Hilary Duff Weighed In

Lizzie McGuire really did do it all, from becoming a model to kissing Aaron Carter, and her crowning achievement was becoming a bonafide Italian pop star. But with a reboot on the horizon, how much of Lizzie’s unbelievable past stardom come into play when she’s a 30-year-old making a life in New York City? Well, Hilary Duff has some thoughts on that, and made it clear how she feels on if Paolo will be in the Lizzie McGuire reboot.

In a new interview with Cosmopolitan, Duff opened up about the current status of Disney+’s troubled Lizzie McGuire reboot, which went on hiatus in January after showrunner Terri Minsky departed from the series due to creative differences. Although production has not yet restarted on the reboot, Duff revealed that she is still in communication with the cast and crew, so there is still hope for the new series. "I’m still talking to [the team] weekly, I don’t know, "Duff said. "They were shooting and then everything was put on hold. And we’re just kind of figuring out if we can make this happen."

Of course, it will be some time before the reboot can start shooting again if it does get back on track, but Duff shared some tidbits about which actors could be returning for the show. It sounds like most of the original Lizzie McGuire cast was primed to make a comeback, but don’t expect to see the Italian fraudster Paolo pop up again… at least not without Lizzie going off on him.

TBH, most Lizzie McGuire fan will probably be pretty happy to not see Paolo in the reboot — he wound up being the villain of The Lizzie McGuire Movie after all.

The big question now is if this reboot will actually happen or not. The reason for Minsky’s departure and the production hold was reportedly due to a disagreement on the maturity of the rebooted series with Disney+. Duff herself posted a note asserting that the new show shouldn’t "live under the ceiling of a PG rating" and asked Disney to move it to the more adult-friendly Hulu. Right now, the reboot is still at Disney+ without a showrunner, but fans should be reassured by Duff’s confirmation she’s still in constant contact with the team. Hopefully, we will hear more about the future of the show soon enough.
