The actress gets a deal with 20th century fox.
Little did we know that when Lizzie McGuire hit the Disney Channel in 2001, it would become one our most cherished childhood shows.

She represented everything we experienced as a kid: awkward encounters at school, insecure emotions about boys and friends and a seriously sick obsession with butterfly clips.

And when the last episode aired in 2004, a little piece of our hearts would be broken forever…

Or would it?

In a recent interview with Huffington Post, Hilary Duff may have mended our souls by admitting she’d be down to do a Lizzie McGuire reunion someday!

“I would be totally open to it.  My schedule is a little busy right now But um… why not?” She said with a laugh, quoting her 2003 hit song.

“I mean, so many people loved her,” she continued.  “I loved her. Honestly, working on that show, I got so strong with my physical comedy and all the things that they would throw at me. I got covered in goo every week, and I got, like, smashed in the face with a locker every single week. And all this, I mean it was a really, really fun show. And obviously people really loved her. Maybe a ‘Lizzie: Where Are You Now?’ like 10 years later.”

After Duff stopped working on the show in 2004, she went on to star in several movies including A Cinderella Story and The Lizzie McGuire Movie and released a couple albums, but after a while she decided she just needed a break (hence her disappearance for several years).

“I had toured for like 5 years, so once I was done with my last tour, I was just like, ‘I’m done.  I need a break.  I need to go away. I need to like live.’  And I did.”

During her hiatus, she ended up getting married to Mike Comrie (who she separated from earlier this year) and having a baby boy named Luca (who is now 2.5 years old).

But after releasing some new singles, working on a new album and starring in the TV Land series Younger all this year, I’d say she’s BACK… And a Lizzie McGuire reunion would definitely put the icing on the cake.
