During Disney’s Upfront presentation to potential advertisers in New York, Disney revealed some new details on the upcoming “Wizards Of Waverly Place” revival series and shared some new images from the show.

The new series is going to be called “Wizards Beyond Waverly Place” and is a continuation of the Emmy Award-winning “Wizards of Waverly Place”.

The announcement was made by Selena Gomez, who serves as the new series’ executive producer and guest star, she also revealed first-look images and the series logo.

The photos provide a glimpse of Gomez and David Henrie reprising their roles as Alex and Justin Russo. It also serves as an introduction to series lead Billie, portrayed by Janice LeAnn Brown, and the Russo family, played by Mimi Gianopulos (Giada Russo), Alkaio Thiele (Roman Russo) and Max Matenko (Milo Russo).

Additionally, newcomer Taylor Cora has joined the regular series cast in the role of Winter, Billie’s bubbly, quirky and oversharing best friend.

The series 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.

Jed Elinoff and Scott Thomas serve as writers and executive producers, along with Gary Marsh, Gomez and Henrie. Andy Fickman directed and executive-produced the pilot and will direct multiple episodes.
