As if 2020 couldn’t get any worse, Hilary Duff shattered all of our dreams when she announced that the Disney+ reboot of Lizzie McGuire has been scrapped.
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 for 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 and despite everyone’s best efforts, it isn’t going to happen,” the actress wrote.
She added: “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 more in the amazing woman she would’ve been in the adventures we would have taken with her.”
She concluded by blaming 2020 (which she should).
“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,” she wrote.
The revival was picked up by the streamer in August of 2019, but it hit a snag early on when the original series creator Terri Minsky exited the series.
She said the show was heading in a “different creative direction.”
“However, I feel a huge responsibility to honor the fans’ relationship with LIZZIE who, like me, grew up seeing themselves in her,” she wrote.
The issues seemed to be stemming from Disney’s “PG” outlook and the reboot’s intentions to give Lizzie an authentic 30-year-old experience.
“I’d be doing a disservice to everyone by limiting the realities of a 30-year-old’s journey to live under the ceiling of a PG rating. It’s important to me that just as her experiences as a preteen/teenager navigating life were authentic, her next chapters are equally as real and relatable.”
Minsky asked if Disney would allow the show to be moved to a more mature streamer like Hulu, but it seems that those pleas were rejected.
Fans were excited to see Hilary back in action as their favorite childhood character along with original stars Hallie Todd, Robert Carradine, Jake Thomas, Adam Lamberg, and Lalaine, who were set to reprise their roles of Jo, Sam Matthew, Gordo and Miranda, respectively.
Netflix Renews Spanish Drama ‘Elite’ for Fifth Season Ahead of Season 4 Premiere, Adds News Cast Members
We’ve got some elite news!
Spanish drama Elite has been renewed for a fifth season at Netflix!
The news isn’t all that shocking considering the drama, set in the ritzy private school of Las Encinas in Spain, is one of the streamer’s best performing Spanish originals.
Not only is the cast incredible, the first few seasons were hinged around an intoxicating murder mystery and plenty of steamy love scenes.
The renewal comes ahead of the fourth season, which currently doesn’t have a premiere date. In 2020, filming was delayed due to the coronavirus pandemic and an outbreak on set.
It’s possible the series will return in the spring/summer of 2021.
The upcoming season will see a handful of familiar faces including Samu (Itzan Escamilla), Guzman (Miguel Bernardeau), Omar (Omar Ayuso), Rebeca (Claudia Salas), and Ander (Aron Piper) as they were held back due to their shenanigans. The drama will also welcome new students Manu Ríos , Carla Díaz , Martina Cariddi and Pol Granch to shake things up.
Deadline also reports that the fifth season has added Argentinan actress Valentina Zenere (Soy Luna) and Brazilan actor André Lamoglia (Juacas) to its cast.

“We don’t hide. We fight,” Elizabeth Moss’ June states in the new teaser trailer for the upcoming fourth season of The Handmaids Tale.

In the first scene, we see June walking an empty street in normal clothing, a fear departure from the handmaid’s red dress and white bonnet uniform.
Flashbacks reveal she escaped Gilead with members of the resistance as a war is brewing.
Hulu’s recently-released trailer also reveals a premiere date, so mark April 28 in your calendars.
Much like previous seasons, the season will return will drop three peisodes at once followed by a weekly rollout.

‘Younger’ Moving to Paramount+ for Seventh and Final Season – Watch the Emotional Sneak Peek
Younger has a new home.
After six seasons at TV Land, the hit TV show about Liza Miller, a middle-aged, divorced mom who lies about being twenty-something to restart her career in publishing, is moving to Paramount+.
ViacomCBS made the announcement during the streaming presentation on Wednesday.
Paramount+ is a new streaming service that will replace CBS All Access. on March 4.
The base tier will cost $5 and include ads. For ad-free streaming, the monthly price will set you back $10.
Now, that doesn’t seem like a lot, but if you’re an avid TV watcher, adding yet another streaming service to your monthly bundle might not be totally feasible.
The good news is that the 12-episode final season will also air on TV Land. The catch? It will run delayed likely after the series wraps, which means you might not avoid spoilers.
Pick your battles, I guess.
The move, while annoying for some, isn’t completely out of the blue. The series was supposed to the Paramount Network for its sixth season but ultimately stayed at TV Land.
With such a dedicated fan-base and so much potential, it doesn’t seem like 12 20-minute episodes are going to provide a satisfactory conclusion. And I don’t think I’m ready for Liza to finally choose between #TeamJosh and #TeamCharles permanently.
The seventh season was initially delayed due to the COVID-19 pandemic, but the cast has been busy filming in New York as of late.
And that’s why fans were able to get a sneak peek at the upcoming season:
As Liza says, “embrace the past, accept the present, and keep moving forward.”
While it sure does seem like Liza picks Charles in the end, Sutton Foster promises that the final season will bring “all the emotional, all the laughs, and all the drama defined Younger and have made it the success it is.”
The series stars Foster, Hilary Duff, Nico Tortorella, Debi Mazar, Miriam Shor, Molly Bernard, Charles Michael Davis and Peter Hermann.
Back in March, it was announced that Duff would be getting a spinoff based on her character Kelsey Peters.
