The revival of the iconic Lizzie McGuire television show may be different from what fans expect, as the show's original creator Terri Minsky has quit.

Minsky stepped down after shooting only two episodes, according to Variety magazine. 

"Fans have a sentimental attachment to Lizzie McGuire and high expectations for a new series," said a Disney spokesperson. 

"After filming two episodes, we concluded that we need to move in a different creative direction and are putting a new lens on the show."

While fans have been waiting in anticipation for the new series, lead actress Hilary Duff has also expressed her enthusiasm. 

"I am beyond excited. I've really missed her. I think now is a great time for her to come back in her 30s," she said. 

Lizzie McGuire originally aired on Disney Channel from 2001 to 2004. It followed the life of 13-year-old Lizzie and her friends Miranda and Gordo during the ups and downs of teenage life.

The new series will follow McGuire just as she's about to turn 30. 

She now lives "the perfect life" in New York City and is grown-up, older and wiser.

Adam Lamberg, who played Gordo in the original series, is confirmed to appear in the reboot, along with actors Hallie Todd, Robert Carradine and Jake Thomas, who played Lizzie's mum, dad and brother respectively.
