Max Braverman (Max Burkholder) has always been headstrong, but on Thursday's Parenthood season premiere (10/9c, NBC), he takes things to another level.

The Season 6 premiere features Adam (Peter Krause) and Kristina (Monica Potter) gearing up for the opening of Chambers Academy, the school they fought to open at the end of last season after Max was bullied by several of his classmates.

However, as seen in the  exclusive sneak peek below, Max has absolutely zero plans to attend Chambers Academy despite his parents' hard work.  "We want you to be excited to go here because this isn't going to be like your old school.

So why is Max so insistent on not attending Chambers Academy? And can Adam and Kristina change his mind? Check out the clip below to find out:
