People will always have a thirst for what they grew up with. Whatever new sitcoms there are, perhaps this generation will never get enough of the likes of iCarly, Victorious, and Wizards of Waverly Place. Luckily for the iCarly fans, they got a reboot. So, Wizards of Waverly Place kids, you better brace yourselves because you’re getting a sequel too!
While the cast returned for a stand-alone special in 2013 with The Wizards Return: Alex vs. Alex, fans were simply left wanting for more, especially with the absence of their beloved Alex Russo. Not this time, because Gomez is coming back as a guest star reprising her role in the pilot. Moreover, Gomez is set to executive produce the show with David Henrie.
Henrie is also coming back to play his role as Justin Russo, Gomez’s onscreen sibling. Unlike Gomez, he will be a series regular. New cast members will also be joining including Janice LeAnn Brown from Disney’s Just Roll with It, Alkaio Thiele from Call Me Kat, and Mimi Gianopulos from American Princess.
The sequel will focus on the life of Justin Russo as an adult. As a husband and a father of two, he chose to leave his wizard powers behind to live a normal life. However, he is left at a crossroads when a young wizard asking him to train him shows up.
The date of release is still in question, but one thing’s for sure, this will surely leave fans at the edge of their seats until we finally see the Russos on screen.
