Selena Gomez would totally be down for bringing back Wizards of Waverly Place, so grab your wands!

On Friday (December 13), the "Look at Her Now" star answered some of the internet's most pressing questions about her during a recent radio interview in the UK. Among the fan inquiries Gomez responded to involved the possibility of a reboot for her hit Disney Channel series, which wrapped its final season in 2012.

"Binge watching Wizards of Waverly Place, @selenagomez when are we getting a reboot?" read one fan question via Twitter, to which the 27-year-old revealed: "It makes me very happy. It was one of the greatest times of my life. I will never forget it. I still talk to some of the people from the show." Sounding off on her feelings and interests of making a revival, Gomez admitted: "I actually would love to. I don't know when that will happen or if that will happen but I am 1,000 percent down."

With the rise of Disney+ bringing back fan-favorite shows like Lizzie McGuire, the return of Wizards of Waverly Place seems more and more likely. Plus, Gomez isn't the only star to tease the prospect of its comeback. “Selena and I sit and talk about what would the reboot be, and we have a whole take. We have a whole thing," co-star David Henrie revealed in September.

"We want to start the show like a few years later. Start them off at the worst place ever so that way throughout the series you give them a nice, beautiful arch of reuniting. Start them off divided," he explained.

"Alex is a fashionista, off killing it in some other part of the realm," he added. "Justin's, like, the principal [of WizTech] who has a family now… [Jake T. Austin's] Max has the sub shop, but it's run down. Start us all completely discombobulated and then throughout the course of the series you bring us all together.”
