This may be hard to believe, but it’s officially been 1r years since Hannah Montana premierd. Yep, the hilarious Disney Channel series aired its first episode on March 24, 2006, and it’s seriously shocking how fast time has flown by! It feels like just yesterday viewers were watching Miley Cyrus, Emily Osment, Mitchel Musso, Jason Earles and Moises Arias on their TV screens, and there’s not a day that goes by that they don’t miss it, TBH.
There may not be anyone that misses the series more than Miley herself. When celebrating the show’s 15-year premiere anniversary in March 2021, she penned a heartfelt letter to the character Hannah.
“It’s been a while. 15 years to be exact. Since the first time I slid those blonde bangs over my forehead in the best attempt to conceal my identity. Then slipped into a puke pink terry cloth robe with a bedazzled HM over the [heart]. I didn’t know then … that is where you would live forever. Not just in mine but millions of people around the world. Although you are considered to be an ‘alter ego,’ in reality there was a time in my life when you held more of my identity in your glovette than I did in my bare hands,” she wrote. “You were like a rocket that flew me to the moon and never brought me back down. … You and I have been through it all together, my friend. We’ve shared many firsts. A lot of lasts. Ups. Downs. Tears and laughs.”
After four seasons on the air and nearly 100 episodes later, fans said goodbye to the popstar in January 2011. Miley concluded her letter, writing, “Hannah, I hope you hear me and believe those words are true. You have all my love and upmost gratitude. Breathing life into you for those six years was an honor.”
