Plot Synopsis

Set in the present day with flashbacks to the 1990s, SYDNEY TO THE MAX is a half-hour sitcom that centers on outgoing middle schooler Sydney Reynolds who lives with her protective yet doting single dad Max in the house where he grew up, along with her trendy and progressive grandmother Judy. As Sydney's preteen pursuits begin to expand with unexpected and funny twists, Max tries to get a better sense of the guidance, perspective and support she needs. Grandma, armed with parental wisdom and wisecracks, has a razor-sharp memory that proves Max's own teenage antics parallel Sydney's. Whether it is experimenting with a new hairstyle that becomes a #HairFail, deciding to stand up for gender equality or learning how to deal with unexpected body hair, flashback scenes to a young Max and his best friend Leo parallel the challenging and often comical predicaments Sydney and her vivacious friend Olive find themselves in. While their adolescence is separated by three decades as well as generation-defining tech and fashion (think VHS camcorders and bleached skater hair) in every episode, Sydney and Max grow closer as they learn they have more in common than they initially thought.
On Tuesday, July 23, 2019 from 8-9pm ET/PT, Disney Channel premiered the Season 1 finale of SYDNEY TO THE MAX, debuting back-to-back new episodes:

"Dancin' the Vida Loca" (8pm): When Sydney struggles with ballet, something her mom was great at, she starts to feel like she's losing touch of her mom.

"How Sydney Got Her Phone Back" (8:30pm): When a cell phone ban policy during school hours goes up for a vote, Sydney is sure her dad, who's on the Parent School Committee, will vote against it.

Two months earlier -- on Thursday, May 23 -- Disney Channel ordered a second season of SYDNEY TO THE MAX.
