Miley Cyrus has thrilled fans of her HANNAH MONTANA TV series and film franchise by signing on for a fourth season of the hit Disney show.
The 16 year old has starred in all three series of the kids' favourite, in which she portrays a normal schoolgirl who becomes a pop star at night, but she admits she had doubts about reprising her role for another run.
She was convinced to step in front of the camera again after show executives promised to allow the teenager more control over the storylines.
A statement from The Disney Channel reads, "Miley and the producers have proposed a change of setting for Season Four that will provide the catalyst for wonderful new characters and further expand the storytelling opportunities."
Filming is set to commence early next year (10).
