Netta Walker, who portrayed Keisha, also shared her thoughts on Instagram, saying thank you to her character. “I’ve learned so much from the last 3 seasons of loving you.

All American: Homecoming executive producer and showrunner Nkechi Okoro Carroll earlier said she was “devastated” to learn that the show would not be moving forward with a fourth season. “We made this show for the culture and thank our loyal audience and fans for taking this ride with us,” she added in her statement. “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!”

We will update with more reactions as they come in.
