SURPRISE!!! I’ve been trying to contain this excitement for a loooong time while this has been in the works!

While we don't know too much about the reboot so far, we're hoping everyone from the original cast returns - mainly Lizzie’s best friends Gordo and Miranda.
So, let’s take a look at what Hilary and her former co-stars have been up to over the past decade…
While she might have shot to fame as Lizzie McGuire all the way back in 2000, Hilary continued her acting career long after the show ended.
She starred in the iconic chick-flick A Cinderella Story alongside Chad Michael Murray and had a recurring role on Gossip Girl.
She also dipped her toe into the popstar world with a few hits over in the US - including "So Yesterday".
Most recently, Hilary has starred on the hit show Younger.
She also has two children - 10-month-old daughter Banks with fiancé Matthew Koma, as well as 7-year-old son Luca with ex-husband Mike Comrie - and is forever sharing cute photos on Instagram.
Unlike her on-screen BFF, Lalaine Vergara-Para, who played Miranda, has kept a pretty low profile since her time on Lizzie McGuire.
She did star on shows such as Raymond & Lane, Off the Clock and Shane Dawson TV and even had her own short-lived singing career.

Gordo actor Adam has also kept himself to himself after becoming Lizzie’s love interest on the kids show.
He starred in When Do We Eat? and Beautiful Loser following his role. But according to Bustle, he bowed out of acting and in 2014, he was working in New York City as a developmental associate at the Irish Arts Center.
He may have been Lizzie’s annoying little brother Matt, but nowadays, Jake works as a photographer and director, in addition to acting.
And he still loves reminiscing over old Lizzie McGuire times on Instagram....
Long before Mean Girls, Kate Sanders was the original Regina George.
But actress Ashlie has since quit acting and is now a lawyer living in California with her husband and daughter.
Back in 2015, she told MTV that her ultimate goal was to "work on issues related to criminal justice reform."
No surprises, Clayton Snyder - aka Ethan Craft - grew up to be a major hottie.
Since playing Lizzie's crush on the show, Clayton pursued a career in waterpolo and since played for the USA Men's National Team, the Olympic Club and Promogest Quartu (an Italian team).
After playing Lizzie’s mum Jo, Hallie starred in various TV roles and films, including a movie she co-wrote herself called The Last Champion.
Rather impressively, she's also written two books, Being Young Actors and Parenting the Young Actor and teaches acting classes in California.
Robert Carradine - aka Sam McGuire - was famous long before his role on Lizzie McGuire and starred as Lewis Skolnick in Revenge of the Nerds back in the 80s.
The 64-year-old star continues to work in the industry and most recently he produced Solitary Confinement and is currently filming A Very Odd Christmas.
