The Disney Channel first introduced us to the Russo Family with the premiere of "Wizards of Waverly Place" back in 2007. The cute clan of undercover wizards went on to mesmerize viewers for five years and 106 episodes, to be exact. Oct. 12, 2017, marks an entire decade since then-youngsters Selena Gomez and David Henrie hit the airwaves in their magical roles. Since we know you're eager to find out what the cast is doing 10 years later, Wonderwall.com used a spell to find out everything you need to know. Get clicking!
Selena Gomez was 15 when she first starred as wizard sibling Alex Russo on Disney Channel's hit 2007 series "Wizards of Waverly Place."
Since "Wizards of Waverly Place" went off the air in 2012, Selena Gomez has turned herself into a bona fide pop star — both of her albums debuted at No. 1 on the Billboard 200 chart and she developed a record-breaking Instagram following of 128 million. But before embarking on her 2016 Revival Tour, Selena took an unexpected step back to deal with health problems and went public with a shocking diagnosis in October 2015. "I was diagnosed with lupus, and I've been through chemotherapy," she revealed to Billboard magazine. "I could've had a stroke." She's since learned to better manage her autoimmune disease while still maintaining a busy Hollywood career. In 2017, she released two new hit singles while recovering from a kidney transplant (best friend Francia Raisa donated one of her organs). She's also made her mark as an actress and producer, starring in "Spring Breakers" and lending her voice to the animated "Hotel Transylvania" franchise. She was an executive producer on the 2017 Netflix series "13 Reasons Why," and in 2018, she'll appear in Woody Allen's next film. At the start of 2017, Selena went public with her romance with fellow artist Abel Tesfaye — better known as The Weeknd — and the duo have been inseparable ever since. Before that, Selena was briefly linked to DJ Zedd and Orlando Bloom. And we'll never be able to erase the years of torment she and Justin Bieber put us (and each other) through after they began their long on-off relationship in 2011.

David Henrie starred as the oldest wizard brother, Justin Russo, on Disney Channel's hit 2007 series "Wizards of Waverly Place." He was 18 when the series debuted.
It's been five years since the final season of "Wizards of Waverly Place" aired, but David Henrie is still close to the entire cast. In fact, Selena Gomez, Jake T. Austin, Jennifer Stone, David DeLuise and Maria Canals-Barrera were all guests at his wedding when he married former Miss Delaware Maria Cahill in Los Angeles on April 21, 2017. Besides being a newlywed, David has been busy on the indie film scene, even having gone back to his Disney roots to star in the 2015 Walt Disney biopic "Walt Before Mickey." Up next, he's slated for an animated film called "Max & Me" also starring "Twilight" actress Ashley Greene.
Jake T. Austin starred as the youngest wizard, Max Russo, on Disney Channel's hit 2007 series "Wizards of Waverly Place." He was just 12 when the show premiered.
Jake T. Austin is all about the big screen these days! In 2017, he's already starred in two animated movies — "Teen Titans: The Judas Contract" and "The Emoji Movie" — and he's slated to appear in an indie film, "The Valley." He did, however, also have a good run on the small screen for quite some time following "Wizards of Waverly Place" — he spent two years on ABC Family's hit series "The Fosters" and enjoyed a stint on "Dancing with the Stars" in 2016. He even owes his old Disney Channel series big time for helping him find love: He's dating Danielle Caesar, a superfan who spent years reaching out to Jake on social media before they made a love connection. "I'm crazy for her," he wrote alongside a smoochy Instagram photo confirming their relationship in 2015.
Jennifer Stone was 14 when she first starred as Harper Finkle, a Russo family friend, on Disney Channel's hit 2007 series "Wizards of Waverly Place."
Jennifer Stone dabbled in TV movies following her time on "Wizards of Waverly Place," but hasn't been active since the release of her 2014 Lifetime flick, "High School Possessions" … until now! On Sept. 28, 2017, Deadline confirmed her leading role in the upcoming family movie "Santa's Girl," which will tell the story of Santa Claus' daughter leaving the North Pole to go to school. "I am finally getting back to my main squeeze: acting," Jennifer wrote on Instagram following the announcement. Aside from her return to the business, she's also in a relationship with musician Beau LePaige, whom she took as her date to Jake T. Austin's wedding.
David DeLuise was 35 when he first starred as wizard patriarch Jerry Russo on Disney Channel's hit 2007 series "Wizards of Waverly Place."
David DeLuise has stayed put in the family genre since his days on "Wizards of Waverly Place." He's currently filming the third installment in the "Pup Star" franchise, chronicling the story of a Yorkie trying to make it as a professional singer. And he's been in a slew of Christmas movies; his most recent, "Believe," was released in 2016. The divorced dad of two was last linked to actress Sharon Stone back in 2014, but is currently (seemingly) single.
Maria Canals-Barrera was 41 when she first starred as mama Theresa Russo, the only mortal in the Russo Family, on Disney Channel's hit 2007 series "Wizards of Waverly Place."
Maria Canals-Barrera is making the move to the soap opera world… well, sort of. She's starring in the upcoming soap comedy series "His Wives & Daughters" on CMT. What a switch from her old Disney Channel life, right? But Maria had already made the move out of family television after "Wizards of Waverly Place" ended, having starred on ABC's comedy "Cristela" until 2015. The real-life mom of two has been married to fellow actor David Barrera since 1999. In April 2017, she shared photos on Instagram of her adorable tween daughters, Bridget and Madeleine, hanging with Selena Gomez at Jake T. Austin's wedding.
