A whole new generation is about to meet Lizzie McGuire.

Hilary Duff is set to reprise her role as the heroine for a revival series of the beloved Disney Channel classic for the Disney+ streaming service, according to multiple reports. Duff is expected to make a surprise appearance at D23 Expo on Friday afternoon during the Disney+ presentation to formally announce the news. 

In the new Lizzie McGuire series, Lizzie is reportedly a 30-year-old millennial navigating life in New York City.

Duff played the titular middle schooler -- and voiced her animated alter ego -- when the show aired for two seasons on Disney Channel from 2001 to 2004, and again in the 2003 film, The Lizzie McGuire Movie.

The series followed 13-year-old Lizzie McGuire as she navigated friends (Miranda and Gordo), family (mostly her parents and her younger brother Matt) and teen issues, such as first loves. Lizzie's animated self would pop up to express her inner thoughts and feelings.

All 65 episodes will be made available to stream on Disney+, which officially launches Nov. 12.

Duff, who currently stars on TV Land's Younger, confirmed to ET last year that there have been "some conversations" about a Lizzie McGuire revival, saying at the time, "It's definitely not a go."

Still, the 31-year-old actress admitted the chance to get to play Lizzie again would be a nice full-circle moment for her career. "I mean, I love her so much," Duff said at the time. "I think she was so important to girls at an important time in their life. If she could be important to them again at this age, I think that would be amazing."

Fifteen years after Lizzie McGuire wrapped, Duff has two kids of her own, 7-year-old son Luca and 10-month-old daughter Banks. When she last spoke with ET about the chances of a revival, Duff said she didn't believe Lizzie would be a mom. At least, not yet.

"I don't think she's a mom yet," she teased. "But she might be getting there soon."
