Coming Ahead: 'Wizards of Waverly Place' Season 4 and Movie Sequel


With 'Hannah Montana' coming to an end this year, Disney Channel will rely on this Selena Gomez-starring series to be the juggernaut.

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.
