Hannah Montana: Disney Channel Confirms Series Ending, No Season Five

Hannah MontanaBack in June 2009, it was reported that pop sensation Miley Cyrus had decided to say goodbye to Hannah Montana, the Disney Channel series that made her a star. The word is now official but there’s still plenty to come.

Hannah Montana revolves around Miley Stewart (Miley Cyrus), an average high school student. Unknown to most of her classmates, is also secretly a singing sensation named Hannah Montana. Miley moved from Tennessee to Malibu with her single-father and manager, Robby Stewart (real-life dad Billy Ray Cyrus), and her brother Jackson (Jason Earles). Miley’s family and friends, like Lilly (Emily Osment) and Oliver (Mitchel Musso), are among the few who know Hannah Montana’s true identity.

The series debuted on March 24, 2006 and has been a huge success for the Disney Channel. It’s paved the way for several successful albums, a concert, a feature film, and hundreds of related products. But, Miley Cyrus is getting older and apparently wants to move on to do other things.

In June, Miley’s father said that season four would be the last for Hannah Montana and commended his daughter for wanting to end the show in the right way.

Should Hannah Montana end with season four?

He said, “Quite frankly, I give a lot of credit to Miley for taking it to another year. She didn’t want it to just end with whatever was the last episode we did. She wanted it to build to where there’s a moral to the story, to where it doesn’t just end and go away and that’s it. She wanted there to be an official ending to Hannah Montana.”

The Disney Channel has now confirmed that season four will indeed be the end. Adam Bonnett, Disney Channel Worldwide’s senior VP/programming, told the NY Post, “You never know in this business . . . but right now we’re scheduled to wrap [forever] after shooting this new batch of episodes.”

Thankfully for fans, there’s plenty of new episodes on the way before the big series finale. The third season of Hannah Montana will wrap up with a one-hour episode in March. It’s titled “Is Miley Saying Goodbye?” and Miley makes her big decision; to continue being Hannah Montana or to just be a regular girl.

Season four will pick up the storyline in late spring and will revolve around the ramifications of Miley’s big choice. Film actor Ray Liotta will guest star in the season opener and Two and a Half Men’s Angus T. Jones will guest star in a later episode.

The season and series will wrap up with a special one-hour series finale. It’s unknown when that will air but new episodes are expected to roll out over at least the next year.

What do you think? Are you sorry that Hannah Montana is coming to an end or do you think they’re making the right decision?

    Miley’s a great person. I’ve met up with many people who have worked with her and have known her and they all say she’s terriffic. Complicated at times, but what teenager isnt. Lol. Miley has a lot of haters out there and a lot of fans too. I’ve seen how she’s grown over the years and, Miley may make mistakes, but who out there doesnt make a mistake, no one. She’s not perfect and you can never expect her to be. I know Miley is a great person and she’s looked up to by many. With the music I sing and write, I’d have to say Miley’s influenced me the most. Not by her mistakes, but by the way she learns from her mistakes. She doesn’t let haters ruin her and she usually voices her own opinion. She not perfect, she’s just another teenage girl going out into this world everyday like any other teenager out there. Like you and I.

    To all the idiots saying it’s wrong for hannah to end, especially the moron who called her selfish & greedy: I am a huge hannah montana fan! My son & I watch it together. SHE GREW UP! How is it selfish of her to grow up & move on with her life? She outgrew the show, just like every person out grows stuff!

    I can’t believc its over I loved watching this show with my kids. I love the way they ended it though; it was such a good episode I was in tears. Miley & Hanna grew into what they were always meant to be and it’s up to us fans to keep supporting her(Miley). Go Hanna!

    Shes not a bad person just because she wants to move on. i applaud her and even though i love the show i cant say she is a bad person or not because its not in my jurisdiction.

    They should not cancel Hannah Montana! Its a great show and I have seen a lot of fans grieving over this. Miley is just a bad person. She is letting ALL her fans down, PLUS she is trying to grow uo way to fast! She is losing FANS big time. If she was a TRUE popstar she would do what made her fans happy. She is just too greedy and needs to learn some more life lessons!

    I definitely don’t want Hannah Montana to end, but sooner or later things have to. Miley Cyrus admitted herself that her contract was set to expire the year she turns 18. That’s 41/2 years of showing. And I think that the show was much better in the first and second seasons; so really I wouldn’t mind if miley cyrus moved on to something different. She’s getting older, too, and unlike shows like “sonny with a chance” the show started early enough in their lives that you can tell the characters are getting older. It’s time that Disney lets some other ideas like the upcoming series “Shake It Up” hit telivision. Who knows? It might be just as good as Hannah Montana.

    I don’t wan t Hannah Montana to end but all good things must come to an end sooner or later I guess but there a bunch of people out there that still want the show to stay on tv even if it is just reruns alot people don’t want to see Hannah montana taken out of the disney channel.
