All American: Homecoming is set against the backdrop of the HBCU (Historically Black Colleges and Universities) experience at Bringston University, where Black Excellence is a way of life.

In Season 3, Simone deals with the fallout from the romantic choice she made in Season 2, but romantic drama will take a back seat when she finds her tennis ambitions threatened. Her friends rally to support her, particularly Thea (Camille Hyde), the team’s former Queen Bee, now looking to make her mark on the pro-circuit. JR (Sylvester Powell) struggles to get his life back on track following his ousting from KEK and the completion of treatment for aplastic anemia. Meanwhile, Coach Marcus (Cory Hardrict) deals with unforeseen consequences of his wife’s return, Lando (Martin Bobb-Semple) forges new links with the friend group and becomes a regular at “family dinner” and Cam (Mitchell Edwards), Keisha (Netta Walker) and Nate (Rhoyle Ivy King) all struggle to balance their romantic relationships with their chosen career pursuits with varying degrees of success.

All American: Homecoming is produced by Warner Bros. Television and CBS Studios in association with Berlanti Productions and Rock My Soul Productions, with executive producers Nkechi Okoro Carroll, Greg Berlanti, Sarah Schechter, Robbie Rogers, Marqui Jackson and Lindsay Dunn.

As Nellie Andreeva previously reported, both All American and All American: Homecoming remain on the bubble for new seasons under new owners Nexstar.

Additionally, The CW also set the Season 2 premiere date for 61st Street. The second season of the dramatic thriller starring Courtney B. Vance and Aunjanue Ellis will debut Monday, July 22.
