The Lizzie McGuire revival is bringing back another beloved cast member.
Disney+ has confirmed that Adam Lamberg is returning for the forthcoming sequel series, reprising the role of Gordo.
There was a love story brewing between Gordo and Lizzie, so fans have naturally been up in arms waiting for this announcement.
“Gordo was an essential piece of the puzzle to what made the original Lizzie McGuire so authentic and beloved,” Hilary Duff — who also serves as an executive producer on Lizzie, alongside original series creator Terri Minsky — said in a statement.
“I couldn’t imagine the series without him. I can’t wait for fans to see what he’s up to 15 years later and how he fits into Lizzie’s adult world.”
Lizzie and Gordo kissed in Italy, but what became of their relationship after that? That's one of the bigger questions about this revival.
The new series is filming in New York City and Los Angeles, and picks up with Lizzie celebrating her 30th birthday.
"She seemingly has it all — her dream job as an assistant to a fancy New York City decorator, her dream guy and a picturesque Brooklyn apartment — but things aren’t always as they seem,” per the logline.
“With a little help from her friends, her loving family and her 13-year-old alter-ego in animated form, Lizzie navigates the ups and downs of adulthood.”
We already know that Hallie Todd, Robert Carradine, and Jake Thomas were returning to the series as her mother, father and brother, respectively.
It's possible that more OG cast members will be added down the line, but for now, this is great news.
Disney+ launched just last week and had amassed 10 million subscribers by the time the opening day was over.
But don't expect Disney+ to release viewership data for shows. Instead, numbers will only be spoken about during quarterly call conferences.
No premiere date has been set for Lizzie McGuire 2.0.
