Dubbed the last season of the Disney series, the fourth season will see the aftermath of Alex's confession to the government that she is part of a wizards family.
The Emmy Award-winning series "Wizards of Waverly Place" will return for a brand new season on Friday, November 12, Disney Channel announced. Coming as guest stars in multi-episode arc are Bailee Madison who joins as an "adorable" wizard named Maxine and Gregg Sulkin who reprises his role as Alex's love interest, werewolf Mason.
In the new wizardly twists and turns, everything is not what it seems, as Alex is tricked into announcing to the world that she and her brothers are wizards, and a duplicating spell goes haywire, changing Max's life forever.
The third season meanwhile will wrap up this Friday, October 15. The government finds out that the Russo family are wizards, and takes them into custody to find out more. Max and Alex are both interrogated by Agent Lambwood and Scientist 1, but both refuse to say anything. When Justin is interrogated, he is tricked into thinking that Aliens are going to attack so he reveals that he is a wizard and that they have a wizard lair.
The episode called "Wizards Exposed" ends on a cliffhanger as the Russo family wonder what to do and whether Alex is right in saying they should reveal to the world that wizards exist to save their fellow wizards.
It is unclear whether "Wizards" will go beyond the fourth season. Selena Gomez had previously said that this would be the last but they would move on with the second TV movie which is set to begin production in 2011.
