The official title of the new series “Wizards Beyond Waverly Place" — a continuation of the Emmy® Award-winning “Wizards of Waverly Place" — was announced on stage at the Disney Upfront today by Selena Gomez. Gomez, who serves as the new series' executive producer and guest star, also revealed first-look images and the series logo.

Series Synopsis: 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.
Premiere Date: From Disney Branded Television, the series is slated to premiere on Disney Channel and Disney+ later this year.

Creative Team: 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.
