You know everything’s gonna be a breeze now that Selena Gomez and David Henrie’s Wizards of Waverly Place reboot is in production.

Gomez announced at Disney Upfront on Tuesday (May 14) that the upcoming series will be called Wizards Beyond Waverly Place, and also shared the first-look images and the series logo. In the snaps, the cast is seen smiling on set. Gomez and Henrie, who played magical siblings Alex and Justin Russo on the original Wizards, will reprise their roles and serve as executive producers on the reboot. Along with Gomez and Henrie, former Disney Branded Television head Gary Marsh and director Andy Fickman are on board to produce, as are the pilot’s writers, Jed Elinoff and Scott Thomas. 

Henrie’s character will lead the majority of the show as Dad to sons Milo, played by Max Matenko, and Roman, portrayed by Alkaio Thiele. More than a decade after the original Wizards wrapped in 2012, Justin Russo is also a married man; his wife, Giada, will be brought to life by Mimi Gianopulos. The series lead, Billie, will be portrayed as Janice LeAnn Brown.

According to the series description, Wizards Beyond Waverly Place, follows “an adult Justin Russo, who has chosen to lead a normal, mortal life with his family, Giada, Roman and Milo. When Justin’s sister Alex brings Billie to his home seeking help, Justin realizes he must dust off his magical skills to mentor the wizard-in-training while also juggling his everyday responsibilities — and safeguarding the future of the Wizard World.”

Wizards Beyond Waverly Place is slated to premiere on Disney Channel and Disney+ later this year. See the first-look photo below.
