Jake T. Austin dished on the upcoming two-part reunion special EXCLUSIVELY to HollywoodLife.com! See what he had to say about the reunion special, his cast mates and maybe a future love interest?!

It’s been almost a year since the last season of Wizards of Waverly Place aired, but, not to worry, the cast will be back in action for their two-part reunion special in 2013! Jake T. Austin teased us about what to expect and how he will handle being back with his on-screen sister Selena Gomez.

Being that fans were left with questions, Jake tells us that the hour-long special will “close the show out and give fans a resolution to the series.”

Jake says that the reunion special will have a new plot and twists — and even some new characters! Does that mean that our Max (Jake T. Austin) might get a love interest?

“I don’t know,” Jake said with a laugh. “Maybe Disney looked into that.”

Will his co-star Selena Gomez be ordering him around on set since she’s executive producer on the special?

He laughed and said that it would be interesting, but he remained very supportive of her.

“Celebrities are progressing and maneuvering through different parts of the industry. It’s smart for her to do that as a producer,” Jake said. “t’s a lot of work putting together the financing, detailing, production and everything. I’m glad she’s ready to tackle all those responsibilities.”

Like Selena, David Henrie, who plays Jake’s character’s older brother in the series, is moving through the industry. Unfortunately, David won’t be a part of the reunion due to a conflict in his schedule.

“He’s gotta do what he’s gotta do as a professional and what’s going to benefit his career,” Jake said. “For me, I’m going to miss getting to play off him and work with him on camera, but he’s able to work on some projects that bring his talents to life.”

Once filming wraps, Jake, like his cast mates, will be moving on to bigger, more mature projects. We’re looking forward to seeing him play Huckleberry Finn in The Adventures of Tom Sawyer.
