One of the most prominent members of the cast happens to be Selena Gomez, who works in both television and music industry. She will be making a cameo in the upcoming reboot's pilot. 


Selena to retire soon?

Selena seems to get bigger and bigger with every new era, but it's possible that she won't be singing for very long. The singer recently acknowledged in an interview that she is considering retiring and that it might happen sooner than most people had thought. During her appearance on an episode of the Smartless podcast with Jason Bateman, Sean Hayes, and Will Arnett, Gomez opened up about finding a niche in the entertainment industry. The singer said, “I started having a lot of fun with music and then touring was really fun. But I was doing my TV show at the same time [Wizards of Waverly Place] and I just found it really fun so I just kept going but the older I get, the more I’m kind of like, I would like to find something to just settle on.”
