Miley Cyrus may be getting ready to say goodbye to Hannah Montana. Or at least she’s thinking about it.
The 15-year-old superstar feels the time may be right for her hit Disney Channel series to come to an end.
“We’re thinking this is our last season,” Cyrus tells me.
Disney Channel execs announced in April that Hannah Montana had been renewed for a third season.
But Cyrus explained in an interview Monday morning (July 28) that she’s been working on the show longer than most people realize. She was 11 when it all began. She turns 16 in November.
“I just think we did a lot of episodes,” she says. “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!”
Adds Cyrus, “It seems like it’s been on, like, longer.”
As much as Cyrus may be thinking about parting ways with her alter ego, she insists any talk that she’s trying to distance herself from Disney—or what she calls her “family”—is hogwash. “I’m still with my family,” she says. “You know, they’re safe. They always feel like home. And that’s what I love about the company. They are family.”
Cyrus’ rep also quickly clarifies the starlet’s talk about the end of Hannah Montana. “We do not know if this is the last season,” the rep says.
