LOS ANGELES, March 25 (UPI) -- Miley Cyrus is grateful for her time on Hannah Montana but also glad the series is over.
The 23-year-old actress and singer reflected on the Disney Channel comedy in an Instagram post Thursday in honor of the show's 10th anniversary.
"Sending love to all my cast members on this anniversary," Cyrus wrote. "To the world it's a celebration of 10 years but for us the journey began way before the world had any clue who the [expletive] any of us are."
"Even though I feel disconnected to who I was at that time I will always feel eternally grateful for the opportunity and platform I was given," she added. "None of it would have been possible without every single person who ever contributed to the series."
"I am where I am because of loyal fans," the star acknowledged. "Even though HM is chopped up into little tiny pieces and buried in my backyard she will always hold a very special place in my heart! Celebrate this day with us!"
Hannah Montana had a four-season run from 2006 to 2011 and launched Cyrus' later career. The actress starred as Miley, aka Hannah Montana, with Emily Osment as Miley's best friend Lilly and Mitchel Musso as Miley's friend Oliver.
"Ten years ago yesterday, Hannah Montana aired on the Disney Channel," Osment wrote. "Thank you to everyone who stuck with us all these years, we couldn't have done it without you ... So nice to hear from [Miley and Mitchel] this morning and I'm sure I'll see you both soon."
Ten years ago yesterday, Hannah Montana aired on the Disney Channel. Yes, this is what 14 year olds used to look like, no teeth no worries. Thank you to everyone who stuck with us all these years, we couldn't have done it without you, and hopefully Mitch still has his "STOP" belt buckle-because fashion. So nice to hear from both of these cutie pies this morning and I'm sure I'll see you both soon. Big, big love. ❤️ #tbt
Cyrus has since released the album Bangerz in 2013, which debuted at No. 1 on the Billboard 200 and includes the singles "We Can't Stop" and "Wrecking Ball." She followed up with Miley Cyrus & Her Dead Petz in August.
