Disney+ has announced the full list of everything coming to the streaming service in May in the United States and Season 3 (Episodes 1-8) of Disney’s Sydney to the Max will arrive on Friday, May 28th.
Geared for Kids 6-11 and their families, the series delivers its boldest season yet as Sydney and her friends, along with Young Max and Leo in the ’90s, embark on eighth grade and take on challenging and relevant issues such as struggles with cultural identity, trying to fit in, coping with divorce and the impact of microaggressions.
Set in the present-day with flashbacks to the ’90s, the series continues to follow outgoing middle schooler Sydney Reynolds who lives with her single dad Max in the house he grew up in, along with her free-spirited grandmother Judy. As Sydney navigates becoming a teenager alongside her bestie Olive, Max’s flashbacks of his childhood with his best friend Leo parallel her adventures, illustrating how life’s “growing pains” evolve but don’t really change. Additional storylines featured in season three touch upon the pitfalls of social media, funny moments when dealing with your crush, and adapting to having a virtual bat mitzvah instead of your dream celebration.
The series stars actress and musician Ruth Righi as the title character Sydney, Ian Reed Kesler as Max, Caroline Rhea as Judy Reynolds (in both decades), Ava Kolker as Sydney’s best friend Olive, Jackson Dollinger as young Max and Christian J. Simon as young Max’s best friend, Leo.
