‘All American’ is a sports drama, inspired by the life of former pro-NFL player Spencer Paysinger. The show follows the rise of high-school football star Spencer James (Daniel Ezra) as culture clashes and brewing rivalries test him every step of the way. Following his transfer to an affluent Beverly Hills school, the teen struggles to find his footing as the new team is threatened by his exemplary skills. ‘All American’ has had a successful run these past two seasons. So naturally, fans are wondering whether they’ll be seeing more of the show or not. Here’s everything you need to know about ‘All American’ season 3!
All American Season 3 Release Date
‘All American’ season 2 premiered on October 7, 2019, on The CW, and concluded on March 9, 2020. Fans will be delighted to know that in January 2020, The CW officially announced the show’s renewal for the third season. Going by the release date of the past two seasons, the upcoming season was expected to follow suit and return in October 2020.
However, given the production delays due to the COVID-19 pandemic, things are uncertain in the ongoing situation – as is the case with many television shows and movies. The CW made it clear on their official website that they plan on releasing ‘All American’ season 3 in January 2021, which was initially slated for the fall. But since it depends on a lot of unpredictable variables, it’s not set in the stone.
The high-school drama started filming for its third edition in Los Angeles on September 28, 2020. Unfortunately, the production was paused quickly after a member of the crew tested positive for COVID-19. Taking the necessary precautions, the series has temporarily halted filming in the light of the recent event. The filming is anticipated to resume on October 5, 2020, only after every single cast member tests negative and is in perfect health. Considering everything, we can expect ‘All American’ season 3 to release sometime in 2021.
