September is already here, and with it begins the fall season of 2023 that heralds a slew of new shows that will hook the fans to their couches, including All American season 6. Touted as one of The CW’s highest-rated shows and also one of the most-watched shows on Netflix, All American has managed to grab a seat in the top 10s with the premiere of each new season ever since it came into being in 2018.
With its latest season, season 5, premiering on The CW on October 10, 2022, the show received an interminable influx of critical acclaim that observed a stable ascending graph on the popularity scale, so much so that the official network could not abstain from renewing the show for a sixth season in January 2023.
For those unversed, All American is a sports drama created by April Blair. Featuring Daniel Ezra, Bre-Z, and Greta Onieogou, this CW show is gaining popularity, as the fifth season aired its finale on May 15th, 2023.
The fourth season of All American, as you must already know, ended with some cliffhangers. For instance, Spencer and Olivia’s relationship. Olivia wants to write an article that will cause a ripple effect in her life of Spencer. Be that as it may, we all know that she needs to prioritize her career, but will she be able to do that at the stake of her relationship with Spencer?
On the parallel front, we have Coop, who seems very optimistic about what lies in front of her, but she is still consumed with a lot of doubts and conundrums. This tension culminates into the fifth season as its February 13th episode, “Time,” makes headlines with the departure of one of the lead characters, Taye Diggs, who played Billy Baker in the series since season 1.
In the wake of such a flabbergasting moment, fans are wondering when the sixth season of All American will land on Netflix. Its immediate predecessor landed on the streaming giant on May 23, 2023. However, the word on the streets of the internet says that All American season 6 might not adhere to CW’s fall schedule of 2023. Continue to read to know why.
When can we expect All American season 6 to air on The CW?
At the time of writing this article, The CW has not revealed the exact premiere date of All American season 6. However, given the consistent record of the official network to release the seasons in October, save for the show’s third season, which was delayed owing to the COVID-19 pandemic, fans expect the sixth season to also premiere in October.
However, it’s sad to announce that this time, All American might not follow that schedule, and its premiere might be postponed indefinitely owing to the WGA and SAG-AFTRA strikes. Even though the season was renewed in January, the show’s development and production timeline are quite nebulous. Initially, the reports indicated that the show would go into production in Summer 2023, but with the ongoing strikes, things are not as clear.
If the strikes cease to continue owing to success in negotiations between the concerned parties, we expect All American season 6 to premiere on CW by late 2024.
What can we expect to happen in All American season 6?
All American Season 5 begins with a Christmas episode that starts tying the loose ends on a romantic front that was left untied in its immediate predecessor. The new season sheds more light on Spencer’s coach as Olivia and Billy get to the meat of the matter. On a parallel tangent, Asher is aiming at his career to become a coach as JJ becomes his first trainee, and Grace and Carter are just an inch away from getting married.
In the shocking finale, titled “Now That We’ve Found Love”, which aired on May 15th, the viewers were left teary-eyed with its bittersweet ending. However, it did leave some characters in a good place, including Olivia and Spencer, while some found themselves, like Patience, in a very rocky situation. Although the series has never abstained from featuring life-and-death situations, Billy’s death was a shocker to everyone.
No matter how all the seasons of All American have ended, they have always provided their fans with a teaser of the upcoming season. Getting inspired from season 5, the sixth season will presumably cover a slew of exciting relationship arcs that were grounded in its predecessor.
With Olivia and Spencer getting back together in the season 5 finale, we expect the duo to turn more serious and mature in their relationship. It will be fun to watch them acting more grown up in the upcoming seasons. Although season 6 will pick up after a significant period of Billy’s death, it will indubitably feature the characters that he touched and how they are inspired by him.
The sixth installment will also presumably feature Billy in terms of flashbacks, which will unravel certain unexplored parts of the character, even after his passing. Besides these minor plot arcs, one of the most significant tangents that the upcoming season will take is Patience’s fate and whether she will survive Miko’s stabbing in the season 5 finale. If she survives it, it will not be without a significant impact on her relationship with Skye.
Who are the expected cast members of All American season 6?
Based on our story predictions above, we expect the following cast members to be featured in All American season 6:
- Daniel Ezra as Spencer James
- Bre-Z as Tamia ‘Coop’ Cooper
- Greta Onieogou as Layla Keating
- Samantha Logan as Olivia Baker
- Michael Evans Behling as Jordan Baker
- Cody Christian as Asher Adams
- Karimah Westbrook as Grace James
- Monet Mazur as Laura Baker
- Jalyn Hall as Dillon James
- Chelsea Tavares as Patience Robinson
- Hunter Clowdus as JJ Parker
- Madison Shamoun as Skye
- Taye Diggs as Coach Billy Baker (if there are flashbacks of him)
How many episodes will be constituted in All American season 6?
In case you missed it, owing to the ongoing strikes and the subsequent delay that it has caused in the season 6 premiere, there is a high chance that the sixth season of All American might have a reduced episode count. Hidden Remote contends that if the strike does not end by Labor Dat Weekend, it might even lose the possibility of having 13 episodes and possibly get reduced to an eight to 10-episode season.
When will All American season 6 arrive on Netflix?
Owing to the lack of information on the start date of All American season 6 on The CW, it becomes difficult to presume the Netflix release date of the same. Per the deal between the official streamer and the network, the show will be available for streaming eight days after its finale date. For instance, the season 5 finale aired on The CW on May 15th; eight days later, that is, on May 23rd, 2023, it landed on Netflix.
Presuming that season 6 sticks to the previous schedules of the show and begins airing in October, you can expect it to hit the Netflix library in April/May 2024. Owing to the WGA and SAG-AFTRA strikes, the start date of season 6 might get delayed and thus postpone its Netflix release to Fall or even further.
All American has become one of the most popular Netflix shows, with people anticipating season 5. Created by April Blair, it first premiered on The CW on October 10, 2018. It was inspired by the life of Spencer Paysinger, a professional American football player. Daniel Ezra is in the lead. It consists of four seasons, all of which are available on Netflix.
