More magic is coming to Disney Channel. The network has announced in a press release that there will be a fourth season of "Wizards of Waverly Place", the series starring Selena Gomez and David Henrie. In addition, there is a plan for a second TV movie which will follow the success of "Wizards of Waverly Place: The Movie".

Production on the fourth season of "Wizards" is scheduled to begin August with Vince Cheung and Ben Montanio as the new showrunners. This duo, who are known for their work in "Married with Children" as well as "Greetings from Tucson", replace Peter Murrieta who quit the show in April. Meanwhile, creator Todd J. Greenwald sticks to the executive producer role alongside Cheung and Montanio.

"The Emmy win this past year confirmed what we already believed - this is a cast of superstar comedic talent, backed by an inspired team of writers and producers," Gary Marsh, president of Entertainment, and chief creative officer of Disney Channels Worldwide said in a statement.

Meanwhile, the sequel to "Wizards" TV movie will again be written by Dan Berendsen. However, no further detail such as when the premiere would be has been released.

Post the announcement that "Hannah Montana" will end in the fourth season, Disney is left with "Wizards" to crank up some huge rating. The series has in fact won an Emmy in 2009 for Outstanding Children's Program.

OMG we are extremely happy with the "Final" episode and ending to this Season of "Wizards", and don't think that it could have been ended any better!! We are so excited and ready to see a NEW Season, with "Alex" and "Justin"'s new roles as "Family Wizard" and "Professor"!!!! We love you Selena & David Henrie and ask that you PLEASEEEE do another season, but will respect your decissions either way! Selena, you are an AMAZING young actress and a WONDERFUL singer!!!! Keep your head and the good work up!!

i hope they make a 5th and 6st season.

hey guys, guess what? even if there was a season 5, the show would still end for some reason and you would still be upset. im also devastated that WOWP is ending, but its Selena's choice and you guys need to leave her alone.

I love wowp,and am disappointed that there will be no more new Seasons. I always thought shows stop because they don't have a lot of fans. This is wierd! As for Selena,I think she is being selfish,but also she is very young. I do think she owes the fans and the show to atleast finish what she started. Anything else would just be lame! Finish what you start,is all I'm saying... or she probably will loose some fans. Hope she is ready for the aftermath...

1. they should have another season cuz` the fans want it and there the ones paying her bills 2. they can replace her, she is a good actress but she is still replaceable. 3.they could focus the show more on justin or max. have alex`s character have a smaller part. 4.I think selena gomez is ungrateful to the show that made her a household name. cuz of the fact she got her music career now she could care less about wowp. problem is she is'nt that good of a singer and with a few years she be as forgetton j'lo. the show just disappointed it had to end so unevenly. I feel bad for the other actors and actresses that won't have jobs due to selena gomez selfishness.sorry truth had to be told, everyone have a safe and happy new year!!!

its pointless telling selena what to do cause i mean its her decision. Yeah, we all want another season of wizards but i guess disney's just too cheap to give us one...unless:? Selena is well known for her charity work so why can't she do another season to raise funds for charity? Or maybe even a movie? Or both? Yeah i know i'm pushing but it's still her choice...
