“Lizzie has also grown up, she’s older, she’s wiser, she has a much bigger shoe budget,” Hilary said at the Expo. “She has her dream job, the perfect life right now working as an apprentice to a fancy New York City decorator, the perfect man who owns a fancy restaurant. She’s getting ready to celebrate her 30th birthday.”

In an Insta story, she told fans, “I am beyond excited. Honestly, I’ve thought about what I would say for quite a few days now and I don’t really have words. It’s crazy.”

“I’ve really missed her. I think now is a great time for her to come back in her 30s. You know she’s everybody’s best friend and I can’t wait to go on this next chapter with her, and I hope everyone is as excited as I am.”

Of course, I still have a ton of questions. For instance, I know they were, like, junior high sweethearts and had exactly one kiss, but what’s the deal with Lizzie and Gordo???


Disney

Are they together? Is he her mystery man? Are they at least still BFFs?

Will anyone from the OG series make an appearance??
