Selena Gomez has worked very hard to shed the Disney Girl image she manifested during her stint on the popular show, Wizards of Waverly Place. So, it is a bit of a surprise to learn she is heading back to the studio to do a one-hour special with her old pals.
Selena explains, “I’m not ready for it to be over, so I just kind of want to do one more thing.” In fact, despite trying to break away from Alex Russo, Selena says, “I wanted to do it really badly.” So badly, the whole reunion special was her idea, and she is the executive producer on the show. Fans were not quite ready to say good-bye to Selena and the rest of the cast either.
Disney executive, Gary Marsh is clearly thrilled and explains the “phenomenal” finale ratings earlier this year revealed how much fans were going to miss the show. He adds, “We’re thrilled that the cast has agreed to reunite to bring their fans one last grand adventure.”
Selena is set to begin working on the one-hour special in October with the show airing sometime in 2013. Can you wait that long? Are you excited to see Selena Gomez return to her roots?
