Wizards of Waverly Place is an American teen sitcom fantasy children's television series created by Todd J. Greenwald which focuses on the three Russo children who on the surface seem to be normal teens, but are actually wizards in training.

The series aired in the USA on the Disney Channel from 12 October, 2007 to 6 January, 2012. There are 106 half-hour episodes in four seasons.

Wizards of Waverly Place originally aired in South Africa on DStv's Disney Channel from 29 February, 2008 to 26 May, 2012. It later aired on SABC3. See "Seasons" below for seasonal broadcast dates and times.

Season 3 premiered on SABC3 on Saturday 26 April 2014, at 08h30. New episodes broadcast weekly. There are 30 episodes in the third season.


The Russo family appears to be a typical New York City family, but they are nothing of the sort. Alex, Justin and Max are everyday kids who also happen to be wizards in training.

They're preparing for a test of their magical skills that will determine which one sibling gets to keep their powers. (In each wizard family only one kid is allowed to keep their powers when they grow up).

Their father Jerry heads up Wizard Class when he's not busy running the family restaurant, Waverly Sub Station, with their mom Theresa.

Sibling rivalry is anything but ordinary as the Russo kids figure out they can use magic for anything from household chores to getting even with each other.

It's always laughs as we watch Alex, Justin and Max try to clean up their messes before their parents bust them.

After all, for the Russos being a teenager can be tricky...
