Wizards of Waverly Place chronicles the adventures of the Italian-Mexican Russo Family. The Russos live on Waverly Place in Manhattan’s Greenwich Village, above a sub shop which they own and run. The family consists of siblings Alexandra “Alex” (Selena Gomez), Justin (David Henrie), and Maximillian “Max” (Jake T. Austin). The three teenagers are wizards and live with their Italian father, Jerry (David DeLuise), a former family wizard, and their mortal Mexican mother, Theresa (Maria Canals Barrera). When the Russo siblings complete their wizard training, they are to participate in a competition to decide who will become the Family Wizard (the one to keep his/her magical powers forever) of their generation, while the others lose their powers and become mortals. Because of this, Jerry tries to teach his children to not become dependent on magic. Since one of them gets to keep their powers, though, Jerry also gives his children wizard lessons (the lessons end mid Season four). The storage room of the Russo family’s sub station is a wizard’s lair. In the lair is a Portal which allows them to visit the wizard world, and other creatures to visit them. The headmaster of the wizard council, Professor Crumbs (Ian Abercrombie), regularly pays visits to the Russo home.
The Russo siblings attend Tribeca Prep and constantly encounter their Old West style principal, Mr. Laritate (Bill Chott). Because they live in the mortal world, the Russos are required to keep the existence of wizardry a secret. Even so, Alex’s best friend, Harper Finkle (Jennifer Stone), discovers the secret in Season 2’s episode “Harper Knows”. Justin’s best friend, Zeke Beakerman (Dan Benson), also finds out in Season 4’s episode “Zeke Finds Out”, also along with Alex’s boyfriend, Mason Greyback (Gregg Sulkin).
