Hilary Duff & Other Former Child Stars We’re Dying to See Back on TV [PHOTOS]

August 15, 2012 12:20 am

Teenagers who grew up with the Disney Channel rejoiced this week when “Lizzie McGuire” star Hilary Duff announced she would be returning to the small screen. Eight years after her Disney show ended, the now 24-year-old mother and wife is expected to star in an upcoming series to be determined.

The revelation that Hilary is coming back to TV got us thinking about some grown-up stars we would love to see back on television. Take a look at five stars we hope to see more of very soon.

Sure she has made a few mistakes in recent months. However, that won’t let us forget all the laughs “The Amanda Show” brought us back in the day. From The Girls’ Room to Judge Trudy to Moody’s point, Amanda’s variety show brought hilarity and skits we still remember today. With her last major TV role in “What I Like About You,” it’s time for Amanda to get back on the small screen.

When In Rome,” “New York Minute,” “Holiday In The Sun“—do any of these classic movies ring a bell? For millions of young girls, The Olsen twins gave fans a world tour in their romantic comedies. Before the movie series, though, the sisters became a household name with their roles in “Full House.” Today, the young women seem much more interested in fashion and dating than starring on TV. We can still hope for an Olsen twin return.

Raven Symone

Growing up, Raven was known as Bill Cosby’s daughter in “The Cosby Show.” As a preteen, she then sang her heart out with The Cheetah Girls. Soon after, the actress finally starred in her own Disney Channel show called “That’s So Raven.”  Today, Raven is keeping a lower profile as she films film and TV roles here and there. We, however, want to see even more of the Cheetah sister.

Shia LaBeouf

Fans fell in love with the brother-sister relationship of Louis and Ren Stevens played by Shia LaBeouf and Christy Romano in “Even Stevens.” After the show ended in 2003, Shia chose to focus more on feature films including “Transformers,” “Surf’s Up,” and “Disturbia.” Maybe it’s time for Shia to even out his career and spend some more time on television.
