Has the tween sensation finally decided that its time under the limelight is over and done with? That seems to be the case for the Disney hitmaker Hannah Montana, as an executive for the company confirms.
According to The New York Post, the Miley Cyrus-led show could wrap up filming after its fourth season. Senior Vice President of Programming Adam Bonnett revealed, "You never know in this business, but right now we're scheduled to wrap after shooting this new batch of episodes."
Even after Hannah Montana: The Movie
made it big and the franchise still hauling in millions, the show might really have reached its end. Miley Stewart has lived her double-life as a pop star and a normal girl for years now, but the verdict on what she really wants has to be told. And lucky for the fans, it's going to be a huge special on March 2011.
Bonnett said that the current season will finish later this year, with "a big one-hour event where we find out what Miley Stewart's decision is going to be" as its finale. It's surely going to be a treat for audiences.
"It's one of the things she's been wrestling with for months - whether it's time to make a decision to continue being Hannah Montana or just be a regular, ordinary girl," the Disney exec went on.
Production for the fourth season will kick off on January 18, ending some time during the summer. Bonnett announced that the upcoming installment will premiere "in late spring. [...] The [new] episodes will continue to roll out at least over a full year."
One surprise that they have lined up for season 4 though, is the guest star. "Ray Liotta will play a role that no one would ever expect him to play in a teen sitcom," Adam Bonnett said.
As for the star of the show, the 17-year-old Miley Cyrus hasn't quite given her opinion on the matter. Even her reps didn't respond for comments, but we all knew this was coming anyway.
In the past, Miley has always expressed how much she wants to move on to more mature roles and bigger projects. She'll always be grateful for Hannah Montana
, but she can't always be that girl.
