This is what dreams are made of: a "Lizzie McGuire" reboot!

Hilary Duff is set to return for a "Lizzie McGuire" spinoff on Disney+, Disney's upcoming streaming service , the company announced Friday at its D23 fan expo . The company said Duff will play an "older, wiser" Lizzie in the new series.

Duff has repeatedly hinted in recent interviews that a "Lizzie McGuire" reboot, first reported by Deadline Hollywood, could be in the works. She starred for three years on the Disney Channel sitcom and film, which earned a cult following among millennials, in the early 2000s.

Disney hasn't yet said if any other original cast members have signed on for the new series.

Disney+ launches on Nov. 12, 2019, though it's not clear when the "Lizzie McGuire" spinoff will premiere.

The Walt Disney Company is the parent company of this station.
