The Disney Channel picked up another season of the live-action comedy “Sydney to the Max.” The network confirmed the season 2 order on Thursday afternoon.
The popular series stars 13-year-old actress/musical artist Ruth Righi in the title role of Sydney. The show is set in the present day with flashbacks to the 1990s and follows outgoing middle schooler Sydney Reynolds, who lives with her single dad Max (Ian Reed Kesler), in the house he grew up in, along with her progressive grandmother Judy (Caroline Rhea). As Sydney’s preteen pursuits begin to expand, Max’s flashbacks of his childhood help him gain a better perspective of his daughter’s experiences. The show has done very well in its demographic, which focuses on kids 6-14 and families.
Mark Reisman (“Frasier,” “Wings,” “The Exes”) created and executive produced the series, and the Disney Channel confirmed that production on season two will commence later this summer.
“Mark Reisman and his team of talented writers, along with the top-notch cast, delivered a show that has quickly become an audience favorite for Disney Channel,” said Nancy Kanter, executive vice president, Content and Creative, Disney Channels Worldwide. “With its playful nod to growing up in the 90s, the series strikes a chord with anyone who’s ever experienced their own’ growing pains.’ We look forward to having our viewers see what’s in store for the Reynolds family next season.”
The show also features Jackson Dollinger as young Max, Ava Kolker as Sydney’s best friend Olive, and Christian J. Simon as young Max’s best friend, Leo.
“Sydney to the Max” joins other hit Disney Channel shows like “Andi Mack,” “Bizaardvark,” “BUNK’D, “Coop & Cami Ask The World,” and “Raven’s Home.”
