Hilary shared her excitement for the sequel series on Instagram stories and her feed.

"I've really missed her. I think now is a great time for her to come back in her 30s and, you know, she's everybody's best friend. And I cant wait to go on this next chapter with her," Hilary said on Instagram stories.

In the live D23 announcement, Hilary revealed that Lizzie is working as an apprentice for a decorator, has her dream apartment, and is even in a relationship with her dream guy. We love that for her!

Fans of the original series have been expressing their excitement on social media.

At the moment, it's not entirely clear which (if any) of Hilary's Lizzie McGuire co-stars will appear in the new series.

For fans of Hilary's TV Land show, Younger, have no fear. She is signed on and permitted to appear in BOTH shows. Happy days!
