If, like us, you've been patiently waiting for the Lizzie McGuire reboot to land, you're in luck, because Hilary Duff is reportedly set to star in a brand-new show.
Duff has played the role of whip-smart book editor Kelsey Peters in Younger for a whole six seasons - and now it's said that her character may be getting its very own spin off series.
So, what do we know about the project?
Well, the series is in the earliest stages of development, meaning it's not even attached to a network yet.
According The Hollywood Reporter, the project is being shopped for by Paramount Network and other channels.
Sadly, the spin-off hasn't yet been scripted or filmed - but stay tuned for juicy details.
TV land's flagship series Younger follows hot shot editor, Liza Miller (played by Sutton Foster) and fellow book editor Kelsey (Duff) navigating the cut-throat world of publishing.
Alongside Miller and Duff, the series stars Debi Mazar, Miriam Shor, Nico Tortorella, Peter Hermann, Molly Bernard and Charles Michael Davis.
The new spin-off series will reportedly see Duff's character Kelsey break away Liza and her peers for a show of her own.
More quality time with The Duff? Yes please.
Duff was all set to revisit her role as Lizzie McGuire in the Disney+ reboot, but production was delayed earlier this year due to creative differences between the network and series creator Terri Minsky.
Why the rising tensions? Well, Minsky is said to have wanted to create an adult version of the Lizzie McGuire character (makes sense, right?) whereas Disney wanted something more, well, Disney-fied and PG-appropriate.
Duff appeared to support Minsky's judgement on Lizzie McGuire's character development. In an Instagram post, the actress said: I feel a huge responsibility to honour the fans' relationship with Lizzie who, like me, grew up seeing themselves in her.
"I'd be doing a disservice to everyone by limiting the realities of a 30-year-old's journey to live under the ceiling of a PG rating."
Amen to that. While we wait for the reboot, we're keeping our ear to the ground for updates on the Younger spin-off.
