All American Season 6 Renewal Status: When was it approved?

Even before the fifth season premiered its final episode, “Now That We’ve Found Love,” earlier this year, the network was quick to approve the series for another season on  January 11, 2023. The renewal announcement excited the fandom, and it seems like the network has always planned to secure the series for another season, and the show creators have already brainstormed the plans to progress the storyline further for another year.  

The series has been praised for its compelling storyline, strong performances, and diverse cast, so it’s not surprising why the show was renewed for a sixth season, which has consistently performed well in terms of ratings and viewership numbers. Moreover, the renewal was also confirmed by the official Twitter handle of the show among their followers with a brand new poster of the sensational cast members, quoting, “Manifested a season 6.”

Take a look at the renewal announcement as shared on the official All American Twitter handle below:

All American Season 6 Expected Release Date: Will it premiere in 2023 or not?

Despite The CW being one of those networks that didn’t officially put a stamp on confirming its upcoming 2023–24 broadcast schedule, we are certain that the network now might be considering putting a hold on the official release of all the scripted shows for the remainder of this year even if the scripted were partially completed, which sadly will include “All American Season 6.” 

We say this with a bit of certainty because all the other competitor networks have also revised their fall schedules and are now all set to release sometime around the early to mid-2024 broadcast season. This has happened due to the ongoing 2023 Writers Guild of America strike and the 2023 SAG-AFTRA strike, which have stopped the working of Hollywood until a proper resolution regarding the compensation of the writers and actors is made for the work to effectively resume and the production to conclude on time without causing any further hurdles or delays in the release.

So, if we look at this current status, one thing is clear: the network might be considering some crucial changes behind the scenes for its upcoming fall primetime schedule because we assume that there is no chance for the production to commence even by August 2023, which will lead to further delays in post-production, eventually forcing the creators to skip the 2023 fall schedule and modify the release window by confirming it to premiere January 2024 at the earliest because, to be very honest, this situation doesn’t seem to get resolved anytime soon!

In conclusion, the longer the writers and actors stay on strike, the longer this hiatus is going to be, and the chances of the series making its comeback in the future with the hinted release window for fall 2023 will remain completely off the table! The CW will be filling the schedule with scripted shows, but not American content. To cover the gap, it is obtaining material from Canada, the UK, and other countries to ensure that the viewers get something to watch during the absence of these series. 

Until there is any official confirmation, we suggest that the viewers be patient and follow all the social media platforms to be updated with the latest information on the potential release date, which might be announced in the near future!

All American Season 6 Plot: What to expect?

We all know this by knowing that the series is inspired by the life of professional American football player Spencer Paysinger. So, the new season is expected to continue the premise and carry the plot from the fifth season which showcases Laura throwing Billy a surprise birthday party, everyone comes together to roast Billy, but Billy has a looming decision hanging over his head. Spencer makes an effort to do what’s best for himself, hoping it helps Olivia and he takes a step towards moving on. 

Jayme offers some sage advice to Asher about his speech with JJ, but she ignores her own about watching out for red flags.

Meanwhile, Jordan and Layla get into their first fight over something neither of them could have predicted. The next season is also expected to pick up the plotlines from the jaw-dropping season finale of the fifth season, which was directed by David McWhirter and written by Mike Herro & David Strauss. In the episode the viewers got to see that dramatic changes are on the horizon for the whole gang; the road forward is destined to be influenced by the past.

“Over the last five seasons, All American has established itself as one of the all-time CW flagship franchises,” said Schwartz. “All American is not only the network’s youngest series but also the strongest performer when combining all our platforms. We look forward to continuing our collaboration with showrunner Nkechi Okoro Carroll, Greg Berlanti, Sarah Schechter, the entire creative team, and the incredible cast for another season of captivating family drama.” 

Even though not much has been revealed about the exact plotlines in order to avoid early spoilers, we are certain that the new season will put Spencer James to the test to navigate the challenges of being a rising star in both Beverly Hills and Crenshaw. This season seems to be promising to explore deeper themes of identity, loyalty, and the power of resilience! We’ll just have to wait and see how the events unfold at Beverly Hills High, as the wins, losses, and struggles of two families from vastly different worlds will once again collide!

All American Season 6 Episodes: Where to stream?

When the sports drama was renewed, it was anticipated to include at least 22 episodes, and it is meant to be consistent with its predecessor. But, due to the ongoing strikes which include SAG-AFTRA, otherwise known as the Screen Actors Guild, and the American Federation of Television and Radio Artists, joining the WGA, or the Writers Guild of America. The official episode count may vary, which may have prompted the makers of the show to slash the number of episodes by creating a shorter season with 15 to 18 episodes so that the season may air on the allotted schedule.

We would also like to highlight that the filming of the new season is speculated to be put on hold because of the ongoing strikes. Moreover, the chances of the network releasing details about the new episodes are minimal in order to avoid spoilers. So, we would advise fans to be patient while waiting for these updates, which will be issued in the coming days, and binge-watch the recently released fifth season to recall the events that have happened so far. 

After the worldwide television premiere of the series, viewers can catch up with the new episodes for free only on The CW app and website, based on their location. For international viewers, All American is available to stream on FuboTV. The series is also available to stream along with All American: Homecoming on Netflix in the U.S. However, it is also available to rent or buy on Amazon Instant Video, iTunes, Google Play, and Vudu, with a vast number of membership plans. Interested viewers can also enable notifications for streaming services to get updates.

All American Season 6 Official Teaser: Has it been released?

As stated above, the network hasn’t released any new promos for the sixth season as filming hasn’t yet commenced, leaving a lot of time for the official marketing to begin, which usually begins a month or two before the premiere. We’ll just have to wait and see what the next few months have in store for us in relation to the 2023 Writers Guild of America strike along with the 2023 SAG-AFTRA strike, as everything concerning the filming status is also neither here nor there!

Due to this, we are certain that no new promos will be released anytime soon. In the meantime, check out the official trailer for All American Season 5, which showcases: “When a rising high school football player from South L.A. is recruited to play for Beverly Hills High, the wins, losses, and struggles of two families from vastly different worlds — Crenshaw and Beverly Hills —begin to collide. Inspired by the life of pro football player Spencer Paysinger.” Take a look at the official trailer below:
