The comeback

Throughout the late 2000’s, entertainment networks, such as Disney Channel and Nickelodeon, were swarmed with popular television shows and movies that showcased characters who were loved and cherished by young people all across the world. However, around 2010, several of these shows began to progressively conclude, and the stars that rose to fame because of their role within these programs moved on to new projects.

Stars, such as Zac Efron, who portrayed Troy Bolton in the 2006 Disney Channel original movie, High School Musical, moved on from his Disney roots and pursued other acting projects that differed drastically from those that he took part in during his Disney days.

Several other actors and groups followed in his footsteps, such as Miley Cyrus who portrayed the teen-pop sensation Hannah Montana and groups like the Jonas Brothers who took part in popular Disney films like Camp Rock and even their own television show, Jonas.

Eventually, Miley Cyrus broke out of the Disney scene and pursued her career without the Hannah Montana disposition and brothers Joe, Nick and Kevin Jonas all eventually took the same route and pursued their own projects away from Disney.

With years passing by and all of these stars taking part in new, different projects away from the Disney and Nickelodeon scene, the idea that any of these stars will resort back to their early stardom roots slowly became less likely. Until now.

On Feb. 28, The Jonas Brothers’ Instagram was recreated, and it was announced that the brothers were making a return, starting with their new single, “Sucker” that was to be released on March 1.

There have been speculations that due to Miley Cyrus’ new look and recent social media activity, there is a possibility that there is soon to be a Hannah Montana comeback and reboot of the television show.

Cyrus has stirred rumors about a comeback when she cut and dyed her hair in the style of Hannah Montana and documented it on her social media accounts. She tweeted a video on March 28 that showed her singing along to the Hannah Montana theme song, “The Best of Both Worlds” with alternate lyrics. Although nothing is definite, certain Twitter users had strong reactions to her tweet and new hairstyle.

After the Jonas Brothers announced their return, Cyrus’ Twitter video of her portraying herself once again as Hannah Montana allowed for people to speculate that their returns hopefully indicated the return of several other past Disney stars and reboots of their projects, such as “Wizards of Waverly Place” and “Good Luck Charlie.”

Although the return of these shows and their stars are just speculations, a more definite return is coming from actress and singer, Ashley Tisdale, known for her iconic roll in “High School Musical” as Sharpay Evans. Tisdale announced on March 27 that she would be releasing her first album since her 2009 album “Guilty Pleasure” on May 3 called, “Symptoms.”

Another definite return is coming from Nickelodeon stars Drake Bell and Josh Peck, who appeared together as brothers in the 2004 show, “Drake and Josh.” The two are currently working on a project together, the details of which haven’t been announced. However, Peck told Entertainment Tonight, that a reboot of “Drake and Josh,” is not on the table.
