'Hannah Montana' Series Will End After A Fourth Season

By Cara Alwill

It is definitely not a happy Friday for "Hannah Montana" fans. Disney’s hit series, "Hannah Montana," which made ts debut in 2006, will come to an end after its fourth season.

The season-three finale, called "Is Miley Saying Goodbye?," is set to air as a one-hour special in mid-March, setting up the story line for the fourth season. " Disney Channel Worldwide programming exec Adam Bonnett said in a statement, it will be "a big one-hour event where we find out what Miley Stewart's decision is going to be." The fourth season is set to begin production on January 18th.

"You never know in this business ... but right now, we're scheduled to wrap after shooting this new batch of episodes," Bonnett continued. "The [new] episodes will continue to roll out at least over a full year."

So what can fans expect as Hanna Montana closes it’s final chapter? Miley's character, Miley Stewart, will struggle with her dual lives as a pop star and as a regular girl. It's a similar situation to the one her character faced in the 2009 flick "Hannah Montana: The Movie." According to Bonnett, "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."

Miley first said goodbye to her Twitter addiction, and now she’s saying goodbye to her series. Perhaps she really is trying to be an ordinary girl. Looks like this truly is a case of art imitating life!

Are you sad that there is an end date to "Hannah Montana"? Or do you think it's time for Miley to move on?
