The CW Dropped Major Details About Season 5 of 'All American'
Based on Spencer Paysinger's experiences growing up in South Los Angeles and attending the prestigious Beverly Hills High School, the CW's All American focuses on problems such as staying loyal to one's friends while pursuing one's ambitions.
The mid-series premiere aired in February of 2022, only a day before the series spinoff — All American: Homecoming — made its debut on The CW. The series introduces a new group of adolescent athletes, including All American's Geffri Maya.
Now fans wonder, is there going to be a Season 5 of All American, or does Season 4 mark the end of Spencer James' story? Here's what we know.
So, will there be a Season 5 of 'All American'?
The jury is in, and All American fans can finally exhale. On March 22, the CW announced that All American will return for Season 5. Following the announcement, Spencer James actor Daniel Ezra took to Twitter to share the news. "Season 5! Wow, this would not be possible without our amazing fans." He tweeted, "Are you excited? How are you feeling?"
As of now, Season 5 spoilers are few and far between, but show runners tease that the upcoming season will see the cast all grown up. After four seasons on air, viewers are more than ready to see what's to come as they age up and out of their parents' houses.
As the Season 4 finale approaches, Coach Billy Baker actor Taye Diggs teased what fans can expect as the rest of the season unfolds. According to him, Billy and Spencer will finally get a fresh start. Taye told Distractify, "As Spencer's growing up into a man, I'm still struggling with who I am as a parent and coach, and ex-coach."
“We’re still kind of getting back to where we were. This is new terrain, and we're just trying to take it day by day,” he added.
Though the CW has confirmed that Season 5 of All American is coming to a small screen near you, it has yet to be determined whether or not All American: Homecoming will return for Season 2. But if ratings are any indication, the franchise won't be going off-air anytime soon.
