The fourth and final season of the television series Hannah Montana (marketed as Hannah Montana Forever) began airing on Disney Channel on July 11, 2010. Production of the season began on January 18, 2010, and ended on May 14, 2010. It is the only season of the series that was filmed in high definition. Also, in this season, Mitchel Musso's character Oliver Oken becomes a recurring character, and is no longer in the main cast. In the season, the Stewarts and Lilly move to a ranch in Malibu. Later in the season, Miley finally reveals to the whole world that she is Hannah Montana. The season ended on January 16, 2011 (USA) and May 27, 2011 (UK & Ireland).
The fourth and final season of the series was released on DVD on March 8, 2011.
For season four, the opening credits from season three were used with some minor revisions. The names (excluding Mitchel Musso as his character has become a recurring character) appear on a scrolling marquee as you would see on a theater, featuring a different font. The sequence then changes to wide-screen episode clips, in which only season 4 episode clips are included. The same version of the song "The Best of Both Worlds" from Season 3 was used; however, a green screened concert version was used with the Season 3 concert stage for the concert scenes. The creators' names appear in the second to last clip. A new version of the switch from Miley to Hannah is featured in the middle of the theme song, as Miley admires a hug between her and her dad in a clip of Hannah Montana Forever. At the end, the versions of Hannah's "shhh" and "laugh" clips were changed to one clip instead of two separate clips.
In season 4, Mitchel Musso was not a part of the main cast; he appeared instead in a recurring role. On March 3, 2010, some guest stars were identified. They include Ray Liotta, Angus T. Jones, Sheryl Crow, and Christine Taylor. Another role that has been introduced is a girlfriend for Jackson, to be portrayed by Tammin Sursok.
Recurring and guest cast include: Tammin Sursok as Siena, Cody Linley as Jake, Dolly Parton as Aunt Dolly, Vicki Lawrence as Mamaw Ruthie, Shanica Knowles and Anna Maria Perez de Taglé as Amber and Ashley, and Drew Roy as Jesse.
