Taking a walk down memory lane! Hannah Montana premiered on March 24, 2006, meaning it’s been nearly 16 years since the show first aired. Miley Cyrus, Emily Osment, Mitchel Musso, Jason Earles and Moises Arias, among others, starred in the series, which aired for four seasons until January 2011. The show followed a girl named Miley Stewart who was secretly living a double life as a pop star named Hannah Montana.
All these years later, Miley herself is poking fun at the Disney Channel show via TikTok. The actress dressed up as the show’s character Lilly Truscott and duetted with rapper Lil Nas X, who was pretending to be Hannah Montana when she revealed her identity. “Again? The old Hannah reveal is losing its shock value,” Miley joked. “You do this every f–king week, Miley!”
When it comes to the idea of bringing the show back to TV, Miley has spilled a lot of tea about possibly putting the blonde wig back on! “You know what? Honestly, I try to put that wig on all the time,” she said during an August 2020 appearance on Carolina With Greg T in the Morning. “She’s just in storage collecting dust, and I’m ready to whip her out … The opportunity will present itself. I definitely would like to resurrect her at some point.”
As for the character of Hannah, Miley joked during the same interview that she “needs a big makeover because she’s kinda stuck in 2008.”
Hannah may be stuck in the past, but she seems to be headed to the future because in March 2021, official Hannah Montana social media accounts popped up on both Twitter and Instagram. “Your favorite teen pop sensation since 2006,” the profile’s bio reads.
When celebrating the show’s 15th anniversary in March 2021, Miley thanked the character Hannah in a heartfelt social media post.
“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 terrycloth robe with a bedazzled ‘HM’ over the [heart]. I didn’t know then … that is where you would live forever,” she wrote at the time. “Not just in [my heart], but [in the hearts of] 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 glove than I did in my bare hands.”
