This may be hard to believe, but it’s been nearly four years since Liv and Maddie said goodbye to Disney Channel. After four seasons, the show said goodbye to the network on March 24, 2017.
The series starred Dove Cameron, Joey Bragg, Tenzing Norgay Trainor, Lauren Lindsey Donzis and more, and premiered on July 19, 2013 — which seriously feels like just yesterday. The show followed Dove’s characters, two identical twins — Liv and Maddie — who were lived two totally different lives. Maddie was a high school student in Wisconsin, who pretty much ate, slept and breathed basketball. While her twin sis, Liv, was a big Hollywood actress! But when Liv moved back home to Wisconsin and reentered Maddie’s life, things got a little complicated, especially since the girls had to share a room!
For years fans wondered where they’d be able to stream the show and relive their childhood. Well, thanks to Disney+, in April 2021, the show will be available for viewing on the streaming service’s site.
Before the show came to an end, Dove opened up about the series finale during a March 2017 interview with Teen Vogue. “Liv and Maddie didn’t start out as a twin show, I actually played a different character in the beginning, and it was neither of the twins,” she recalled at the time. It was a completely different show at first, and it took a long time to get it to where it is. I’ve actually been working on it for five years though it’s only been on the air for four — that’s a long time when you’re young. You’re just never prepared for it to tend, and to get there is surreal. I don’t know how to process it. It’s really sad, I couldn’t have asked for a better cast, and we’re going to keep in touch, it’s one of those lifelong friends … family, really.”
After the show officially ended, Dove and the rest of her cast mates went on to accomplished some pretty epic things in Hollywood. Scroll through our gallery to see what the cast of Liv and Maddie is up to now.
