From 13 going on 30, the series kicks off with Lizzie living in New York City and about to enter her thirties. Lizzie works as an apprentice to an interior decorator and is in a relationship. With an announcement like this, fans are curious to see which original cast members make an appearance if any and who our girl Lizzie ends up with. Now we just have to wait and see. 

In honor of the reboot, let’s take a trip down memory lane and revisit some OG episodes. These are some moments where Lizzie and/or her cartoon alter-ego were relatable to every pre-teen watching. 

1. Thirteen-year-old Lizzie wasn’t afraid of a little challenge and chased her middle school dreams. Let’s see if thirty-year-old Lizzie achieved them. (Season 1, Ep. 5)

Gordo saves the day and finds one, only to have it splattered with paint when Lizzie protects Miranda’s cute outfit from getting ruined. #BestFriendGoals. (Season 1, Ep. 2
