Two new cast members will be joining Bizaardvark, and JJJ has the exclusive scoop!

Maxwell Simkins and Elie Samouhi are officially on board for season three of the Disney Channel series.

The live-action comedy centers around teenage comedy bloggers and best friends Paige Olvera (Olivia Rodrigo) and Frankie Wong (Madison Hu). Maxwell and Elie will star as tween bloggers Zane and Rodney, respectively, who have their own Vuuugle channels – Zane’s “Zane Unboxed” and Rodney’s “What’s in Ma’ Hair?” – that they each run with their moms.

The guys will join their castmates at Disney Channel GO! Fan Fest on Saturday (May 12), a special day for fans to meet dozens of their favorite Disney Channel stars at the Disneyland Resort. The festivities will begin with Disney Channel stars in a cavalcade down Main Street, U.S.A. at Disneyland Park at 11:15 a.m., followed by panel discussions and fan meet and greets with Disney Channel stars at Disney California Adventure Park from 1:00 – 5:00 p.m.

“I love working with Eli and Max,” Olivia shared. “I think people are really going to love their silly, carefree characters. Their Vuugle channels are hilarious. I can’t stop laughing everytime I watch their bits! ”

Elie and Max are some of the most talented and funny kids I’ve met,” Madison added. “Their characters Zane and Rodney are so much fun and add such a great energy to the cast. I’m so excited for fans to meet them!”

If you’re wondering where you’ve seen them before, Maxwell was in The Book of Henry and Inside Amy Schumer. Elie was a principal performer in the choir for The Greatest Showman‘s Keala Settle during her performance of “This is Me” at the Oscars. He also appeared in the TV movie Broken Memories.

We can’t wait to see what season three of Bizaardvark has in store!
