All American: CW’s flagship drama extended by few more episodes in season 6

This is a rare occurrence in the current strike impacted broadcast season, a scripted series getting an order for additional episode. The flagship series of CW, All American is having its current sixth season extended by two additional episodes, that will take the count from 13 episodes to 15 episodes.

The first five seasons of the drama had episodes between 16 to 20. With the series being picked up just over a year post the end of season 5, there seems a lot to unpack, and the extra episode would allow to better flesh out the story and build toward a satisfying conclusion.


The extension would also allow the fans to stay in the current world a little longer as the main characters of the show are preparing for some major life changes such as the protagonist Spencer James, played by Daniel Ezra, and potentially Jordan Baker, played by Michael Evans Behling, headed to the NFL draft. This would creatively wrap Spencer’s journey over the past six seasons.

In addition to Ezra and Behling, the cast of the series includes Bre-Z, Samantha Logan, Greta Onieogou, Cody Christian, Monét Mazur, Karimah Westbrook, and Chelsea Tavares. The series is executive produced by showrunner Nkechi Okoro Carroll, Greg Berlanti, Sarah Schechter, John A. Norris, Jameal Turner, Mike Herro and David Strauss.
