What’s happening:

  • Adam Lamberg is set to reprise his fan-favorite role, David "Gordo" Gordon, a recurring character in the upcoming Disney+ series Lizzie McGuire.

  • Production on the series began earlier this month.
  • This morning —right from the set of Lizzie McGuire— Hilary Duff and Adam Lamberg taped a short clip announcing Gordo’s return. Take a look:

About the series:

  • The new story picks up as Lizzie McGuire is just about to turn 30. She seemingly has it all – her dream job as an assistant to a fancy New York City Interior Designer, her dream guy and a picturesque Brooklyn apartment – but things aren't always as they seem. With a little help from her old friends and some new ones to come, her well-meaning family and her 13-year-old alter-ego in animated form, Lizzie navigates the ups and downs of adulthood.”
