"The Lizzie McGuire show has been put on hold," Turner, 23, said in an Instagram Story.

"I'm obviously devastated like the rest of us, but I'm pretty sure -- like, is Miranda appearing in this season, because I'm here. I'm available. I am your new Miranda."

"Lizzie McGuire people, please reach out to me," Turner added.

The original show's lead star, Hilary Duff, reprised her role and was also serving as an executive producer on the Disney + reboot of the series, however, production was halted after two episodes and original series creator, Terri Minsky, quit her role as the showrunner.

"Fans have a sentimental attachment to Lizzie McGuire and high expectations for a new series. After filming two episodes, we concluded that we need to move in a different creative direction and are putting a new lens on the series," a Disney spokesperson told ET.

Lizzie McGuire ran from 2001 to 2004, revolving around the life of a teenager, played by Duff, and her best friends, Miranda and Gordo. The show also had a spin-off -- 2003's The Lizzie McGuire Movie.
