Earlier this month, Disney Channel announced that Gomez and Henrie would reprise their roles in the highly anticipated sequel series.
Gomez will reprise her character, Alex Russo, as a guest star in the pilot while Henrie will play Justin Russo as a series regular.
The sequel will chronicle the aftermath of “a mysterious incident at WizTech, where an adult Justin Russo has left his wizard powers behind, opting for a normal, human life with his wife and two sons. But he gets a surprise when a powerful young wizard in need of training shows up at his door… and Justin must embrace his past to ensure the future of the Wizard World,” according to an official synopsis.
Brown will star in the lead role of Billie, the powerful young wizard in need of training, on the new Disney Channel series. Thiele will play Justin’s oldest son Roman while Gianopulos will take on the role of Justin’s wife Giada.
Disney Channel teased the news on Instagram, sharing a snapshot of the pilot script with a wand from the series.
“📍Waverly Place 🎥: Wizards of Waverly Place,” the caption read.
Henrie responded in the comment section, writing, “Get ready for the Russo’s to become apart of your family once again, but we’ve grown! 2024, the year 🪄 comes back ;)”
Gomez also reacted to the news on social media, reposting the Deadline story, writing that she was “so excited” alongside a heart emoji. She then shared a throwback photo of her and Henrie from the Wizards of Waverly Place set with the caption, “We’re back.”
