The CW announced today that All American has been renewed for Season 6. The pickup is an early one, coming midway through the drama's fifth season, which returns from its holiday hiatus on January 23. It also marks the network's first renewal of a scripted series since it was acquired by Nexstar Media Group.

"Over the last five seasons, All American has established itself as one of the all-time CW flagship franchises," said Brad Schwartz, President, Entertainment, The CW Network. "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."

Inspired by the life of pro football player Spencer Paysinger, All American follows a model student and rising football player at South Crenshaw High. But even though he lives in Compton, he accepts an offer from Beverly High School to play for their team - leaving him caught between two very different worlds.

Look for Season 6 of All American this fall as part of the 2023-2024 season.
