These days, when TV shows are canceled, it’s relatively rare for the gang to get back together again — but Selena Gomez loved her “Wizards of Waverly Place” fans enough to clear her schedule even after the show aired its series finale on Disney.
Alex and the Russos are returning in the upcoming Disney Channel original movie “The Wizards Return: Alex vs. Alex,” set to air Friday, March 15 at 8 p.m. EST.
Unfortunately, David Henrie, who played Selena’s character’s brother Justin, will not be returning — he had a scheduling conflict with another movie. Luckily, though, that leaves room for double the Alex! Yep, our girl is battling her evil twin in this movie, a nice departure from the usually (mostly) wholesome Alex we’re used to seeing.
We’ll also see “Awkward” star Beau Mirchoff do his best to woo Alex as her new love interest, the Italian heartthrob Dominic. Might her evil twin prefer Dominic to Gregg Sulkin’s trusty Mason?
