Selena Gomez can put those mouse ears away — she isn’t a Disney baby anymore. Last night, The Wizards of Waverly Place, her teen fantasy series on the Mouse House’s cable network, signed off for good with a special, hour-long finale.
While teens may be mourning the loss of their favorite show, for Gomez, the end of Wizards is a significant in a different way. It presents her with quite the crossroads of sorts: Where does she go from here?
Before we look forward, let’s look back at where Gomez — who turns 20 this July — has already been. Rather impressively, she starred on Wizards for the past four-plus years, and it was only the second show on the Disney channel — alongside Raven-Symoné’s That’s So Raven — to log more than 100 episodes.

On the movie side of things, she’s had a smattering of success, logging her film debut in 2010’s Ramona and Beezus and last year starring in Monte Carlo alongside Leighton Meester.
