Premise

Set on Waverly Place in Manhattan, New York's Greenwich Village neighborhood, Wizards of Waverly Place centres on the Italian-Mexican Russo family, which includes Alex, her older brother Justin, and their younger brother Max. The three Russo siblings are wizards in training and live with their father Jerry , a former wizard, and their mother, Theresa who is a mortal.

Alex's best friend Harper also found out about the Russos' wizard powers in the Season 2 episode "Harper Knows". The siblings have to keep their secret safe while living in the mortal world. When they all complete their wizard training, the three siblings will have a wizard competition to decide who will become the family wizard of their generation and keep their powers forever while the others will lose their powers for good and become mortal. Because of this, Jerry is always trying to get the kids not to rely on magic, because they might not have it someday. The magical world tends to be very eccentric and surreal.

Episodes

To date there has been a total of ninety episodes broadcast over four seasons of the show, running from October 12, 2007 to the present day.
