‘Wizards of Waverly Place’ Star Teases Interest in Reboot. Actor David DeLuise who portrayed the Russo’s father, Jerry Russo, teased fans with a fan made Wizards of Waverly Place promo photo along with photos from his time on the series and asked, “You guys want a reboot? Let’s do this !!”
Wizards of Waverly Place easily became a hit Disney Channel Series in 2007 and ran through 2012 as a series, with a television special surprising fans in early 2013. The series starred Selena Gomez as Alex Russo, David Henry as Justin Russo, Jake T. Austin as Max Russo, Jennifer Stone as Harper Finkle, Maria Canal Barrera as Theresa Russo, and David DeLuise as Jerry Russo.
“Alex Russo and her brothers Justin and Max come from a long line of wizards and now must master their newly learned powers or lose them forever. Their dad, Jerry, gave up his powers when he married their mortal mom, Theresa. The family business is Waverly Sub Station in busy Manhattan, and the three young wizards get into all sorts of crazy situations as they grow up facing typical teen challenges like school, friends, family and magic.”
With other popular Disney Channel Series getting reboots such as That’s So Raven and Lizzie McGuire, it makes total sense that the cast and fans are onboard to see The Russo’s reunite for a new season or series. Many fans have even presented the idea of the reboot being streamed via Disney’s new streaming service, Disney+.
There is no word from Disney or the cast about the potential reboot of the series, but we LOVE the idea of a reboot for Wizards of Waverly Place!
