There are many shows that have ended, or one of their cast members leave, ones that we have felt sad about. But this bit of news kind of took us by surprise. According to, Selena Gomez is leaving “Wizards of Waverly Place,” before she does, she is going to do another “Wizard” movie.

In a recent interview with MTV, she told them, “Unfortunately, I’m doing my last season of my show, which I’m really heartbroken about. That’s gonna be a terrible time for me. I’m gonna do a movie for my show, which I’ll be excited to end it with, and then a tour.”

At this moment, there is no expected release date for this movie, but that is not the only movie that she has been working on. Selena has finished the movie “Monte Carlo,” were she plays Grace, and she stars along side “Gossip Girls’” actress Leighton Meester. The movie is set to be released on the 11th of February 2011, according to

Not only do we have to look forward to a new “Wizards” movie, the “Monte Carlo” and a tour, but later on this year she will be releasing a new album.

“The title so far of my album, I mean, I’m hoping it will stick is, A Year Without Rain.”  It’s basically one of my favorite songs on the record. It’s kind of got a more feel-good dance beat and feel. I love it. It’s different, kind of shows my growth of my music. I think if anything the lyrics are powerful, in a way.”

So even though Selena is leaving “Wizards,” there are still a lot more things that we can look forward to from this talented actress and singer.

What do you think about Selena leaving “Wizards.” What is the one project of Selena’s that you are looking forward too?
