All American Gets Extra Season 6 Episodes, Eyes a Wave of New Cast Members If Renewed (Report)

Well, we have good news and bad news, All American fans. The good news is: You’ll be seeing more of Spencer and the gang this season. The bad news is: You might be seeing less of them next season.

The CW has increased the football-themed drama’s Season 6 episode order from 13 to 15, according to our sister site Deadline, with the extra episodes allowing producers “to flesh out that story better and bring it to a satisfying conclusion.” But if All American is renewed for a seventh season — its status for next season is still currently in limbo — it will likely introduce a new wave of “next-gen young characters,” Deadline reports, in an effort to freshen up the series and reduce production costs. (The CW had no comment when reached by TVLine.)

The current Season 6 finds Daniel Ezra’s Spencer playing football in college and preparing for the NFL draft, which “would wrap creatively Spencer’s journey” on the show, Deadline notes. It currently airs Mondays at 8/7c on The CW, after returning for Season 6 earlier this month.

All American is in “the strongest position to potentially continue” of the three remaining CW scripted shows that predate the network’s acquisition by Nexstar. (Superman & Lois’ upcoming fourth season, slated to air later this year, has already been announced as the final season.) The spinoff All American: Homecoming, though, isn’t as lucky: Deadline pegs its chances of renewal at “less than 50-50, with a cancellation as the more likely outcome.”
