Hilary Duff is capable of a wide range of roles, including those of an actor, singer, author, model, and businesswoman. She has had a long career, transitioning from the good little witch Wendy in “Casper Meets Wendy” (1998) to Kelsey Peters in the comedy-drama series “Younger” (2015–2021). Despite this, she has managed to stay in the spotlight thanks to her roles in popular films like “Cadet Kelly,” “Agent Cody Banks,” “A Cinderella Story,” and “Agent Cody Banks.” She has also worked on independent films like the love drama “According to Greta” (2009) and the political action comedy “War, Inc.” (2008).
In addition to films, she had a string of albums released between 2002 and 2007, including “Santa Claus Lane,” “Metamorphosis,” and “Dignity.” Her album “Breathe In. Breathe Out.” debuted on the Billboard 200 at number five in 2015. She is also a co-author of the novels “Elixir,” published in 2010, “Devoted,” published in 2011, and “True,” published in 2013. Stuff by Hilary Duff and Femme for DKNY were her two apparel lines for Donna Karan New York. Despite all of these diverse endeavours, Duff will always be remembered for playing the endearing Lizzie McGuire in the Disney comedy series “Lizzie McGuire,” which aired from 2001 to 2004. After watching Duff in ‘How I Met Your Father,’ you might be curious about her forthcoming ventures. If so, we have you covered!
Untitled Younger Spinoff (TBA)
A ‘Younger’ spin-off project is now under development. The romantic comedy series tells the tale of Liza Miller (Sutton Foster), a divorced mother in her 40s who, with the help of a friend’s makeover, pretends to be 26 exactly in order to get her dream job at the Empirical Press in New York City and return to the publishing industry. She develops a friendship with Kelsey Peters (Duff), a book editor in her 20s and a colleague at the business. However, being a millennial has some unanticipated effects. The seven-season television series, which lasted from 2015 to 2021, was based on Pamela Redmond Satran’s 2005 novel “Younger.” The author of it is Darren Star.
Back in 2020, Star claimed that the spinoff series, which he was also creating, would be centred on Duff’s editor-turned-publisher character Kelsey Peters and take place in Los Angeles. Star provided an update on the series in 2021 while emphasising that it is still under development. “We’re discussing it. No one knows for sure if that will actually happen. We never know if these things will happen until they actually do,” he said in an interview with Variety. Duff expressed her preference for a spinoff movie over a spinoff show in an interview with Cosmopolitan in January 2022, and the project was put on hold. Since then, there hasn’t been any information released about the spinoff or its actors (apart from Duff). We anticipate further updates.
Lizzie McGuire (TBA)
‘Lizzie McGuire’ was created as a comedy-drama series that follows the story of an adult Lizzie (Duff), who is approaching her 30th birthday and lives in the metropolis of New York. It is a resurrection of the namesake Disney programme. She must negotiate her adult, professional, and romantic lives with her vibrant 13-year-old self (ego). Jake Thomas, Adam Lamberg, Hallie Todd, Robert Carradine, Federico Dordei, and Clayton Snyder were also featured in the cast in addition to Duff. The revival show was also created by Terri Minsky, who also created the original series.
Despite having begun production, Disney decided to cancel the series in December 2020. At the time, Duff said, “I know there have been discussions and efforts everywhere attempting to make a reboot work but, tragically and despite everyone’s best efforts, it isn’t going to happen. “Fans of Lizzie McGuire have high hopes for any upcoming new stories. We’ve chosen to hold off and today we informed the cast’s representatives that we are not moving forward with the planned series until and unless we are satisfied we can satisfy those expectations,” Disney said in a statement.
Several months after Minsky departed the project over creative differences, the decision was made to abandon it. During a May 2021 visit on SiriusXM’s “The Jess Cagle Show,” Duff said, “I think they are really trying to figure out what kind of content they want living on Disney+, and that doesn’t totally align with, like, where I see Lizzie right now.” The actress nevertheless has optimism that the eagerly anticipated return would eventually take place. The actress said on “WWHL” with Andy Cohen, “I’m optimistic.”
