Selena Gomez to return for ‘Wizards of Waverly Place’ sequel series

Selena Gomez will return for the sequel series to her teen fantasy-comedy, Wizards of Waverly Place.  

Disney posted the news on Instagram, writing: “Making magic, then and now The new Wizards of Waverly Place series is coming this fall!”  with Gomez, 31, commenting on the post: “WE ARE BACK!! SOOOO GRATEFUL MAGIC.”

The project will be written and executive produced by Jed Elinoff and Scott Thomas, who are behind the Disney Channel comedy spinoff, Raven’s Home. The original Wizards of Waverly Place series ran from 2007 through 2012, co-starring David Henrie and Jake T. Austin. Henrie is also expected to reprise his role in the sequel series alongside Gomez, who will both serve as executive producers.

Ayo Davis, president, Disney Branded Television, said in a statement: “Wizards of Waverly Place captivated hearts with its spellbinding adventures and big laughs, creating unforgettable memories for kids and families everywhere. We can’t wait to step back into the magical world of Wizards, inviting longtime fans and a new generation to experience the enchantment alongside Selena, David, and our incredible cast and crew.”

The Wizards sequel series is set to begin production starting next month in Los Angeles, and is expected to premiere later this year on Disney Channel and Disney+.
