Wizards Of Waverly Place Is 9 Years Old And We’re All Archaic Now

Seriously, where has the time gone?

Even though “everything is not what it seems,” one thing is definitely for certain: Disney Channel’s Wizards of Waverly Place is 9 years old today (October 12), which means all of us are ancient.

The Emmy-winning series about a family of wizards was celebrated by fans on social media using #9YearsOfWizardsOfWaverlyPlace, and even some of the show’s talent got in on the fun. Jake T. Austin, who played the youngest Russo sibling, Max, and series creator Todd J. Greenwald both shared pics from back in the day.
