Touted as one of The CW’s highest-rated shows and also one of the most-watched acquired 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’s show is gaining widespread, as the fifth season aired its finale on May 15th, 2023.
The fourth season of All American, as you must already be knowing, ended with some cliffhangers. For instance, Spencer and Olivia’s relationship. Olivia wills 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 will the sixth season of All American will land on Netflix. Its immediate predecessor landed on the streaming giant on May 23, ’23. However, the word on the streets of the internet says that the Netflix release date of All American season 6 might get delayed. Continue to read to know why.
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 shed 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

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, we expect the sixth season to also premiere in October.
Be that as it may, this could get delayed owing to the WGA strike. 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’ve got into production in Summer 2023, but with the current WGA strike, things are not as clear.
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 strike, 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 constitutes of four seasons all of which are available on Netflix.
