For your convenience, we at Web News Observer have compiled a brief summary of everything you need to know, which includes the potential release date, plotline, cast, and other details about All American Season 6.
All American Season 6 Renewal: When was it approved?
Even before the fifth season premiered its final episode on the CW network was quick to approve the series for another season earlier this year in January 2023. The renewal announcement excited the fandom, and it seems like the network has always planned to secure the series, and the show creators have already brainstormed the plans for the series 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 cast members, quoting, “Manifested a season 6.”

All American Season 6 Release Date: Will it premiere in July 2023?
Since the renewal announcement, there has been no news about the exact release date, and no updates about the production status have been confirmed, as the filming usually begins around the summer season. Hence, we do know right now that the series will definitely make its official comeback during the 2023–24 season. As, All American has been The CW’s number one linear series for adults 18–49, the most-watched series on digital, and the largest show in total audience across all platforms.
So, there is no doubt that the network will release the new season as soon as possible to keep up with the hype of the show without delaying it any further. We also speculate it will premiere sometime around late 2023, as all the prior three seasons had a similar gap by premiering new episodes in October with the same time slot of 8 p.m. ET/PT, with every new episode dropping on a weekly basis, just like the other original series on the network.
We would also like to highlight that there is a chance that the production might get delayed further as the 2023 Writers Guild of America strike isn’t close to reaching a resolution yet it has also been reported that Hollywood stars may also join them due to the ongoing tense negotiations between the Hollywood actors’ union and the major studios, the Screen Actors Guild (SAG-AFTRA) and the Alliance of Motion Picture and Television Producers (AMPTP) which are still underway, and the contract now stands to expire on July 12 at 11:59 p.m. PDT after an extension.
Hence, if any possible agreement isn’t made before the deadline, the chance of both writers’ and actors’ strikes being held together will increase the chances of production being delayed for more weeks. Due to this, one thing is pretty much clear, which is that there is no chance that the network will be able to release All American Season 6 in July 2023 or anywhere close to the end of this year if the filming gets delayed and commence later this year which can shift the release window to be sometime around 2024. We’ll just have to wait and see what happens next!
All American Season 6 Plot: What to expect?
The new season is expected to continue 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.
“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.”
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 season finale of the fifth season, “Now That We’ve Found Love.” This episode 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.”

All American Season 6 Episodes: Where to stream?
The following season is anticipated to consist of at least 20 episodes, with each episode lasting 42 to 49 minutes on average. This episode count is subject to change if filming doesn’t start soon, as it can be reduced to release a shorter season on the expected fall schedule for the CW network. Only if the creators agree not to put a halt on the series production, we want to emphasize that the exact episode titles and synopsis for the next episodes cannot be confirmed as it is way too early to release such details. It will be disclosed once each episode begins to air on a weekly basis.
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 television premiere of the series, the viewers can catch up with the new episodes for free only on The CW app and website, based on the viewer’s location. For international viewers, All American is also available to stream on Netflix in the U.S. However, the series is available to rent or buy on Amazon Instant Video, iTunes, Google Play, and Vudu, with a vast number of membership plans according to the preference.
All American Season 6 Official Teaser: Is there any available?
The network hasn’t released any official promos for the next season, as the marketing is supposed to begin a month before the new episodes officially start premiering on The CW network. So, there is a lot of time left for such promotions to begin. In the meantime, check out the 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:

What is the production status of All American Season 6?
No confirmation about the filming has been reported yet, which has left the status neither here nor there as the ongoing writer’s strike has put many production houses along with the writer’s room on a halt which makes us suspect that the same has happened to All American Season 6.
