Disney bosses have denied reports the forthcoming HANNAH MONTANA series will be singer/actress MILEY CYRUS’ last – despite the teen sensation admitting it was time the show ended.
Cyrus shot to fame in the Disney favorite at aged 11, and is currently preparing to shoot the third season of the hit show.
The young star – now 15 – told America’s E! News that she thought it may be time to hang up the Montana mantle, as she had been working so hard on the show for nearly five years.
She said, “We’re thinking this is our last season.
“I just think we did a lot of episodes. We basically did two seasons in one last year. Usually people would do one season that would be, like, 16 episodes, and we did almost 30 episodes!”
But the show’s representatives have denied the show will finish after its third season, and insist they are glad to still have Cyrus as part of the “Disney family”.
The spokesperson tells E! Online, “Miley said it best when she said she’s delighted to be part of the Disney family. We start production on the third season of Hannah Montana on August 4 and have an option for a fourth season beyond that.
“We look forward to the Hannah Montana feature film coming to a theater near you in Spring 2009.”
