This is the sound of a million 15-year-old hearts breaking: Miley Cyrus may be ready to leave her Hannah Montana role in the dust.
“We’re thinking this is our last season,” Cyrus told Yahoo news.
Production on the new season begins in early August, with an option to continue the show. However, Cyrus may feel the role is exhausted – and exhausting.
“I just think we did a lot of episodes,” she said. “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! It seems like it’s been on, like, longer.”

CTV unveiled its fall lineup Monday at a ceremony in downtown Toronto, and despite the network’s already packed schedule, it was able to find room for seven new shows.

To its fall schedule, the network will be adding four new dramas and three new comedies. The dramas include: “Studio 60 on the Sunset Strip,” starring Matthew Perry; “Smith,” starring Ray Liotta; “Justice,” starring Victor Garber; and “The Nine,” which is producer Jerry Bruckheimer’s new show. The comedies include “Let’s Rob,” “30 Rock” and “The Class.”
“It’s another balanced schedule with strength across the week and power across every genre. Its star power, pedigree and Canadian hits standing shoulder to shoulder with their American counterparts,” says Susanne Boyce, CTV president of programming and chair of the CTV media group.
And CTV has found a way to schedule around the heavily sought after Thursday at 9 p.m. slot ? which is a heavy competition one in the U.S. CTV broadcasts “The O.C.,” “Grey’s Anatomy” and “C.S.I.” so it will air the first two shows before the U.S., beginning at 7 p.m.
It will also follow suit with ABC, and will premiere the new show,” Justice” in August, and then when the MLB playoffs begin, “Lost” will air Wednesdays at 9 p.m. for seven straight episodes before its winter hiatus.
