The CW Cancels 'All American: Homecoming' After 3 Seasons

The CW has today decided to cancel its original drama series All American: Homecoming after three seasons. The cancellation comes ahead of the season premiere on July 8, 2024.

The drama stars Geffri Maya, Cory Hardrict, Sylvester Powell, Camille Hyde, Mitchell Edwards, Netta Walker, Rhoyle Ivy King and Martin Bobb-Semple.

Nkechi Okoro Carroll created the All American spinoff. She executive produces with Greg Berlanti, Sarah Schechter, Robbie Rogers, Marqui Jackson and Lindsay Dunn. Warner Bros. Television, CBS Studios, Berlanti Productions and Rock My Soul Productions produce.

"We want to thank the cast, crew, producers, NK, Marqui and everybody at Berlanti Productions and Warner Bros. Television for their hard work and dedication in telling these important stories for three incredible seasons," the network said in a statement. "The upcoming final season is the best yet and we cannot wait to share it with fans beginning on Monday, July 8."

"I'm devastated to learn that All American: Homecoming will not be moving forward with more episodes and that this new season premiering in July will be our final one," shared Carroll. "However, I am so very grateful to have worked with this incredible cast and crew, led by Geffri Maya, to bring the authentic HBCU experience to your screens for the last three seasons. We made this show for the culture and thank our loyal audience and fans for taking this ride with us. We made this show so that our community, our kids (and their dreams), could be seen and celebrated every week and we are proud to say we accomplished that mission... especially with this exciting final season which we can't wait to show you all. So with a heavy but proud heart, I give one final shoutout to our favorite Bringston Lions!"

With All American: Homecoming and Superman & Lois coming to an end later this year, The CW will enter 2025 with All American as the only remaining scripted series from before the broadcast network was acquired by Nexstar.
