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. 

The ‘Lizzie McGuire’ Revival Would Have Only Succeed as a Mature, Authentic Reflection of Adult Life

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.

Well, we’ll always have Younger and the potential Duff spinoff based on her character Kelsey Peters!

WATCH: The New ‘Pretty Little Liars’ Is Dark AF

WATCH: The New 'Pretty Little Liars' Is Dark AF

‘A’ is not messing around in the Pretty Little Liars spinoff Original Sin.

If you thought we’d seen the last of ‘A’… think again. The masked stalker is back to torment a new group of little liars on the HBO Max series. 

The ten-episode season will debut Thursday, July 28 with three episodes. Two new episodes will follow on August 4 and 11, with the final three episodes debuting on August 18.

A new teaser for the series reveals the tone is going to be much darker than the original ever was, and that’s likely thanks to Roberto Aguirre-Sacasa (Riverdale, Chilling Adventures of Sabrina) who serves as writer and co-executive producer. 

Check out the teaser — complete with a new version of the intro song “Secret.”

Pretty Little Liars: Original Sin synopsis: Twenty years ago, a series of tragic events almost ripped the blue-collar town of Millwood apart. Now, in present day, a disparate group of teen girls — a brand-new set of Little Liars — find themselves tormented by an unknown Assailant and made to pay for the secret sin committed by their parents two decades ago…as well as their own. In the dark, coming-of-age, horror-tinged drama PRETTY LITTLE LIARS: ORIGINAL SIN, we find ourselves miles away from Rosewood, but within the existing Pretty Little Liars universe — in a brand-new town, with a new generation of Little Liars.

WATCH: ‘Boo Bitch’ Trailer Starring Lana Condor & Zoe Colletti is Hauntingly Hilarious

WATCH: 'Boo Bitch' Trailer Starring Lana Condor & Zoe Colletti is Hauntingly Hilarious

If we were to give you only one reason why Boo Bitch needs to be on your radar this TV season, it would be the title alone. Name a better show title… I’ll wait. 

A close second? To All the Boys I’ve Loved Before star Lana Condor takes the lead as a ghost… sort of. 

But despite the name, the series is anything but scary. The eight-episode live-action YA limited series is actually a haunting comedy that follows Condor’s Eric Vu, a play-it-safe high school senior who decides the change things up the same night she gets hit by a truck and winds up, well, dead. 

Erika wakes up and finds herself standing over her own body, she realizes she’s now part of the undead. From nerd to ghost, it’s quite the transition, I might add. 

But she’s not a ghost in the typical fashion. For starters, she can’t walk through doors, everyone can see her, and she can touch people, though, she’s not entirely sure if you can get pregnant while being a ghost, which is a fair question when you’re in high school and crushing! Are ghost babies a thing? Again, valid question, and good on her for being responsible when the possibilities are endless when you’re neither living nor dead. 

She realizes she’s landed upon a “loophole,” ie. “I can stick around if I’m more famous in death than in life.”

Can Erika find a way to make something of her second chance and convince the universe that she deserves to be alive?

The series also stars Zoe Margaret Colletti as Erika’s best friend Gia, who gives new meaning to the word “ride or die.”

Condor defintiely dominates the spotlight as Erika, and the role allows her to show off a more comedic side to her acting, but Colletti, who is newer to the screen, presents as a promising sidekick. Colletti’s credits include Annie, Scary Stories to Tell in the Dark, City on a Hill, and Fear the Walking Dead

Boo, Bitch will be available on Netflix starting July 8.
