It's actually happening! Wizards of Waverly Place is making a comeback to Disney Channel for a one hour special! I was excited to hear about this; I'm pretty sure the support of this show even came from the event where Selena Gomez accepted the KCA Blimp for "Best TV Actress" KCA's this year. And with the show getting nominated for Best TV Show. Although, I'm just glad to see the cast back together.
Here's the scoop:
On September 27, 2012, Disney Channel announced that Wizards of Waverly Place would return as an hour-long special, set to begin production in October 2012 for a premiere telecast on the cable channel in early 2013. The special, to be executive produced by Gomez, alongside series executive producers, will center on the Russos visit to Tuscany to meet long-lost relatives from Jerry's side of the family. In an attempt to prove to her family that she's not merely a carefree wizard, Alex inadvertently casts a spell that creates two versions of her with differing personalities: an evil version of Alex that ends up involved in another wizard's plan for world domination and a good version who upon discovering the wizard's plan, tries to find a way to save her family and mankind, leading to a literal battle between good and evil atop the Leaning Tower of Pisa The name of this will be "The Wizards Return: Alex vs. Alex".
