All American Season 5 Release Date: The Series Has Been Nominated for Multiple Naacp Image Awards!

Since it premiered in October 2018, “All American” on The CW has become a rating and popularity success for the network. The first two seasons of the riveting sports drama have been met with overwhelmingly positive reviews from both critics and viewers, earning perfect 100% scores from the website Rotten Tomatoes.

The series has been nominated for multiple NAACP Image Awards and has dominated the Nielsen ratings (via TVLine), solidifying its position as a must-watch.

The story of retired NFL Super Bowl champion Spencer Paysinger is the inspiration for “All American.” The sitcom stars Daniel Ezra as the potential student-athlete, a young kid from Crenshaw with aspirations of becoming a football star who gets his chance when he is recruited by Beverly Hills High. There are a total of 71 episodes across the four seasons.

Because of the surprising nature of Season 4 (and Season 3 as well), viewers everywhere are eager to find out what happens next. The show’s luck changed in March when it was picked up for a fifth season (via Deadline). Cast member Michael Evans Behling has already hinted to TheWrap that the first half of the upcoming season would be explosive, so fans can rest assured that they will learn what happens to Spencer James and Olivia Baker (played by Samantha Logan) following that shocking finale.

Here are everything viewers of “All American” need to know about the upcoming fifth season.

What Will the Fifth Season of All American Be About?

Though we don’t know what will happen in All American Season 5, there are plenty of storylines that can continue from where we left off in Season 4. After Olivia told Spencer she was going to publish an article on Spencer’s corrupt GAU football coach, it seemed like the two were headed for a split.

In an interview with TVLine, Daniel Ezra hinted that Spencer will have to make a tough choice in the near future. At that very time, he feels the need to defend his partnership. The actor said, “I think it’s the most important thing to him.” Her sudden appearance of her pits him against his football ambitions. I doubt he ever considered a world in which they were on completely opposing sides.

Also, towards the end of Season 4, Coop had made up his mind to continue on in his single status. Bre-Z is thrilled by the possibility of her character majoring in criminology in the future. The actor recently discussed his desire to see her “try something different” with TVLine. Working with Laura Baker, I believe, will help her greatly in developing greater competence in dealing with people and circumstances, and will also provide her with a bit of a perspective shift.
