‘All American’ season 4 is scheduled to premiere on October 25, 2021, on The CW. Although the network hasn’t confirmed the number of episodes in the fourth season, new episodes will reportedly drop at 8 pm ET on Mondays.
Owing to its massive following, viewership, and acclaimed critical response, it is no surprise that the network decided to renew the show for season 4. On February 3, 2021, The CW confirmed their speculation and announced that ‘All American’ will be back for a fourth outing. With Covid-19 playing a role in messing up production schedules, The CW decided to offer some stability to the production teams to map out ahead, which most likely sped up the announcement for season 4.
The network also announced the renewal of a host of other shows but confirmed that they remain dedicated in their endeavor to deliver the best to their fans. Moreover, with the release date of the fourth installment just over 3 months after the conclusion of the third season, it seems like the COVID-19 situation is under control for the production team as they strive to bring the much-loved TV series to our screens.
Additionally, fans have more reasons to celebrate as the network even greenlit a spinoff series titled ‘All American: Homecoming.’ Set at Bringston University, it is a sports drama series that focuses on the lives of a tennis player and an elite baseball player.

Season 3 ends on a massive cliffhanger right before the big game between rivals Beverly and Crenshaw. The teams get into a fight over the speculations about Spencer leaking Crenshaw’s strategies. The show also leaves a huge question mark on the fates of other characters, with Asher learning about his heart condition – cardiomyopathy, which will not allow him to play football ever again.
Elsewhere we see Layla finally getting through to Carrie and even agreeing to travel to Tahoe. However, their fate hangs in the balance as Carrie writes a suicide note for Layla’s father, hinting they might both take their own lives. However, Coop’s fate carries the biggest cliffhanger of the season as we see her get set up by Mo, who plants weed in the tour bus. The altercation ends in a shootout, and the finale ends on the shocking scene of Coop bleeding from a gunshot wound.
With most characters’ futures hanging in the balance, it looks like season 4 will pick up exactly from the ending of its predecessor. In the upcoming season, we might get to witness the outcome of the game between Beverly and Crenshaw and find out if Spencer can be free of the accusations against him. Moreover, the season will also focus on Spencer, who is now selected to play in the All-American game and is dating Olivia.

With numerous character arcs to tie up and exciting events on the horizon, the fourth season of ‘All American’ is sure to be a treat for fans.
