Football is a hugely popular sport in the United States. One show that has infused the passion for this game is the sports drama All American. The CW drama series that debuted in 2018 is still going strong after four seasons. In fact, the popularity of the show lead to a spin-off series All American: Home Coming. 

All American is a sports drama series based on the life of professional football player Spencer Paysinger. Debuted in 2018, All American has emerged as one of the best dramas on TV in the last couple of years. The show follows Spencer James, a star high school football player, who is recruited to play for Beverly Hills High, causing his social life and sporting life to collide in dramatic fashion.

Season 4 of All American concluded airing on The CW on May 23, 2022. After four successful seasons, the sports drama series will be back for a fifth season as announced in March 2022. The fans are excited for the new season as it comes with new challenges for Spencer. So, what are the latest updates on season five? When is All American season 5 going to be released? Here’s everything we know.

When will ‘All American’ Season 5 be released on The CW?

The CW renewed the show for a fifth season in March 2022. Though the production for the fifth season hasn’t started, we can make a definite guess about its premiere date on The CW.

Recently, The CW announced its Fall 2022 schedule and All American Season 5 was of it. So, it is certain that the fifth season will premiere at some point between Oct to Dec 2022.

Historically, seasons 1, 2, and 4 of the show premiered in October. Season 3 got delayed to Jan 2021 due to the COVID-19 pandemic. So, All American Season 5 is expected to debut on The CW in Oct 2022.

How many episodes will be in Season 5?

There is no update on the number of episodes, season 4 is going to have. The first two seasons had 16 episodes each. Season 3 had 19 episodes while the fourth season was the longest one with 20 episodes.

We are expecting The CW to follow the last season’s pattern. So, expect 20 episodes in the fifth season with a similar release schedule i.e. debut in Oct and conclusion in May.

All American Season 5 plot, storyline: What to expect?

With season 4 of the show recently concluded, we have a pretty good idea of what to expect from the next season. It is known that Spencer’s time at high school is coming to an end. So, a shift to a college will be the new development we will see in the next season. This shift will bring more challenges for Spencer. His ultimate aim is to make a place in the NFL. But his struggle to make a balance between his education and social life is clearly visible. This is one area that will be the core point going forward.

Apart from Spencer, Coop, and Patience’s music careers will be the prior plot points going forward. Both of them are heading in different directions. Coop is putting her health first while Patience is enjoying the launch of her new album. The tension between these two and their opposite paths will surely be explored in season 5.

The complex relationship between Olivia and her twin brother Jordan will be one of the heating topics of the next season.

All American Season 5 Cast: Who will return?

Well, all the prominent cast members are expected to return for season 5 of All American.  First and foremost, Daniel Ezra will definitely return as Spencer James for the upcoming season. We are also assured that Coop (Bre-Z) and Olivia (Samantha Logan) will return for the next season.

Coop is recovering from her gunshot wound. Her music career is on hold but that won’t be last forever. She would make a comeback. Her equation with Patience will be one of the core plot points for the next season. Meanwhile, Olivia is working on a big story and her writing is causing problems for many of the characters around her.

Other supporting characters, Layla (Greta Onieogou), Jordan (Michael Evans Behling), Grace (Karimah Westbrook), and Coach Billy Baker (Taye Diggs) are likely to star in season 5, though nothing has been confirmed yet.
