Selena Gomez is reprising her role in Wizards Of Waverly Place for a TV movie, less than a year after the hit show ended.

The actress/singer shot her final scenes for the popular children's series last year and almost 10 million viewers tuned in when the last episode aired in January.

Gomez subsequently admitted wrapping the show after four years was "one of the hardest things" she's ever experienced - but now she's set to reunite with her co-stars.

The new project, which Gomez will also executive produce, will begin production next month in Los Angeles and will be shown on the Disney Channel in early 2013, according to The Hollywood Reporter.

Gary Marsh, president and chief creative officer of Disney Channels Worldwide, says, "With the phenomenal ratings of the Wizards finale earlier this year, it became clear that fans of the series were not ready to say goodbye to Selena or the rest of the 'Wizards' cast. As such, we're thrilled that the cast has agreed to reunite to bring their fans one last grand adventure."
