If you're ready to head back to Waverly Place, you're not alone.

David Henrie, who costarred alongside Selena Gomez on the Disney Channel hit Wizards of Waverly Place recently revealed that he and Selena talk about rebooting the popular series "all the time" and that they have their own plan for how to do it. 

In an interview with ET Online, David said that he and Selena, who played siblings Justin and Alex Russo on the hit kids' show from 2007 until 2012, have it all worked out.

Here's what David says his and Selena's Wizards reboot would look like: 

As ET Online points out, imagining the future of Wizards of Waverly Place is a regular pastime for the former costars, who shared some predictions about their characters' lives in an Instagram Story in 2017.

"You have kids. Alex is for sure single," Selena said at the time of her character.

"Yeah, Justin has, like, 15 children," David said. "Alex is single; she's still trying to find herself. She's now, like, 25, and she's trying to figure things out. Max is lucky if he's even found himself. Like, he's literally lost."

"He now just makes sandwiches on the street," Selena added, laughing.

Sounds about right, TBH. Now, come on Disney, and make Selena and David's Wizards: Part Deux idea a reality ASAP, please. Disney+ needs #content, after all.
