Miley Cyrus has confirmed that she’ll star alongside Woody Allen in his much-anticipated series for Amazon Prime, which begins shooting in March.

According to a report by editor Mike Fleming, Allen has also cast actress-director-comedian Elaine May in the series.

But it is Cyrus, naturally, with the slightly bolder-faced name here, and the characteristically more hyperbolic confirmation notice:

In a posting Monday night on Instagram, she wrote, “[expletive] yeah! Stoked to be in Woody Allen’s first series!!!!! I had claimed 2016 to be my year of ‘chillin the [expletive] out’ but next to my bed for a few years now has been this portrait of W.A. & I was looking into his eyes when I got the call to be a part of the cast and work alongside the bad a$$ Elaine May & da dude himself! 1960zzzz here I cummmmm”

Heck yeah: The six-part series will be a period comedy, set in the ’60s.

Cyrus, 24, of course, began her career on the small screen, as a child actress alongside her father, Billy Ray Cyrus, in the sitcom “Doc,” much later as Miley Stewart/Hannah Montana on the Disney Channel hit “Hannah Montana,” which wrapped in 2011. Notoriety arrived a couple years later at the MTV VMAs (Twerking? Recall?). The as-yet-untitled Allen series represents her first return to a regular role on TV — or a “streaming service,” to be technically precise — since “Hannah” ended. May starred with Allen in the 2000 crime caper comedy, “Small Time Crooks.”
