What is the All American season 6 release date? Everyone loves a good underdog sports story. And quite frankly, when it comes to fictional young talent working their way to the top, knocking back obstacles and encountering dramatic twists and turns, All American is certainly a stand-out.
The CW show, which has also became one of the most popular TV series on Netflix, has all the flare of a classic sports movie repackaged into a drama series format. Think: Friday Night Lights. The series follows Spencer James, who gets recruited to play football at an upscale Beverley High School. Cue various football-related antics.
Although season 5 is still in full swing, the network has already confirmed that a sixth season is on the way. So, as we do, we’ve got together everything we could find out about the upcoming continuation. (Warning: spoilers ahead for the series so far.) Here’s everything you need to know about the All American season 6 release date.
All American season 6 release date speculation
We believe All American season 6 will be released in October 2023. Season 5 and season 4 premiered in October, so it stands to reason that new episodes will follow that pattern.
That said, the 2023 Writers Strike could cause an issue here. If the strike needs to go into the summer, that’ll make getting all the scripts ready for filming difficult.
The president of entertainment at The CW put out the following statement on the season 6 announcement: “Over the last five seasons, All American has established itself as one of the all-time CW flagship franchises. 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.”
All American season 6 cast speculation
We expect cast of All American season 6 to bring back most, if not all, of the major stars.
Though we can probably safely assume that Billy Baker won’t be coming back, unless in flashback form, since Taye Diggs’ character has already met his untimely end.
That said, with season 5 still in full swing, there’s plenty of scope for characters to come and go. Even so, we can take an educated guess at who might be returning for the next season.
Here’s the expected All American season 6 cast list:
- Daniel Ezra as Spencer James
- Samantha Logan as Olivia Baker
- Michel Evans Behling as Jordan Baker
- Greta Onieogou as Layla Keating
- Taye Diggs as Billy Baker
- Bre-Z as Asher Adams
- Monet Mazur as Laura Fine Baker
- Hunter Clowdus as JJ Parker
- Chelsea Tavares as Patience
- Kareem J. Grimes as Preach
What is All American season 6 about?
The plot of All American season 6 will continue from Patience’s cliffhanger, as well as Spencer and Olivia finally revealing their feelings for each other.
Jordan and Layla have gotten engage as well. Besides all the love in the air, we have the recurring storyline of Jordan and Olivia being left to grapple with their father’s death. This gives Jordan self-doubt, and Olivia struggles to stay sober.
The death of Billy will no doubt continue to act as a difficult arc for the characters as well, as they endeavour to move on amid the tragedy.
