Hanna Montana scheduled to end this year
Miley Cyrus’ reign as Hannah Montana might be coming to an end. The hit Disney channel television show will likely end after the 2010 season, network executives announced.
In a news release issued to media organizations, programming executive Adam Bonnett said “You never know in this business, but right now, we’re scheduled to wrap after shooting this new batch of episodes.
The popular television show made Cyrus a household name, and it’s been a big moneymaker for Cyrus and the Disney network since it debuted in 2006.
Two films based on the television show were released in movie theaters, and they earned a combined $226 million worldwide at the box office.
Cyrus raked in $25 million from June 2008 to June 2009, according to Forbes. By the way, I think it should be illegal for teenagers to be millionaires while hardworking adults like myself are living paycheck to paycheck. But that’s another story.
It’s unknown what the star will do when the show ends, but she will probably venture out into more movie roles and continue her music career.
The “Hannah Montana” series has a cult-like following. It seems like young girls from everywhere flock to anything related to “Hannah Montana,” including movies, merchandise, clothes, CD’s, concerts, etc.
Cyrus will turn 18 in November. Although it’s a risky move to leave the popular series, it’s a good way to expand her career beyond the “Hannah Montana” franchise and to make sure she doesn’t become typecast.
After all, she can’t play the same adolescent character forever.
