Is All American: Homecoming renewed for Season 2?

Yes, it’s official that CW has renewed All American: Homecoming for a second season. The renewal was confirmed by the network and some of the star cast of the series shared the announcement with their followers on Twitter. Take a look at some of the posts below: 

Rhoyle Ivy King who plays Nathaniel Hardin simply quoted, “Season 2 #AllAmericanHomecoming”

Geffri Maya who portrays Simone Hicks also shared the news through her official Twitter handle and quoted, “Season 1 almost over. Season 2 pick up. Thea and Damon. Issalotgoingon. Happy #AllAmericanHomcoming day” Take a look at the post below: 

According to Deadline, as reported on May 12, 2022, the net reports that All American: Homecoming, was one of its most-streamed shows on the CW app in its first year.  So, it is not surprising that the network decided to renew the series long before the finale episode of season one was set to air as a TV broadcast and later available to watch on the streaming platform. 

All American: Homecoming Season 2 Release Date

The series renewal was officially announced by the CW in the month of May before the premiere of the conclusion episode of Season 1, Irreplaceable, which was released on May 23, 2022. Since then, it’s only been a few days. So, asking for an exact official release date for All American: Homecoming Season 2 seems a little early. On the other hand, fans should rejoice at this moment that the series is still happening. The renewal announcement of the series within a few days is not usual with the major networks which evaluate the performance of the show to grant another season.

However, if we must anticipate the release date for the following season, we can look at the previous season’s pattern, as the first episode of Season 1, Start Over, premiered on February 21, 2022. As a result, the upcoming season might premiere in the early months of 2023 assuming there are no major production delays and the crew members are able to arrange the post-production for the season on time.

We would like to highlight that this is just speculation at this point in time. However, it is evident that the network intends to keep the show going, as the quick renewal implies that plans for a second season were already in the works with no major hurdles.

Take a look at some fan’s reactions to the renewal

All American: Homecoming Season 2 Plot

According to the CW, the series follows a young tennis hopeful from Beverly Hills, Simone Hicks, and an elite baseball player from Chicago, Damons Sims as they contend with the high stakes of college sports, while also navigating the highs and lows of unsupervised early adulthood at a prestigious Historically Black College. All American: Homecoming Season 2 is expected to expand on this already established premise for the future season and continue the storyline from the very last episode of the series which the viewers got to see on the CW channel on May 23, 2022. 

The 13th episode, Irreplaceable, was estimated to be viewed by 0.48 million US viewers. The episode is directed by Christine Swanson and written by Nkechi Okoro Carroll & Megan McNamara. The official synopsis of the episode states, “Simone grapples with her role on the tennis team; Thea receives some upsetting news; an interim coach creates conflict for Damon and JR; Amara finds herself back in the spotlight with a surprising career opportunity.”

In the episode, viewers got to see that, Simone struggles with her status on the tennis team as Homecoming week progresses, and Thea learns some disappointing news. Due to the absence of Coach Marcus, an interim coach is appointed, causing conflict between Damon and JR as they attempt to win their most critical game. While Keisha dedicates herself to raising finances for Bringston in the hopes of keeping her chosen family together, Cam makes a decision that could have enormous ramifications. Meanwhile, Amara has been thrust back into the spotlight thanks to an unexpected employment opportunity.

The series is expected to be picked up and revealed where the series is going in terms of characters and storylines for another season starting from this precise moment of the finale episode.
