After All American: Homecoming's future status spent months in limbo as The CW made some programming changes, fans of the series everywhere should rejoice as All American: Homecoming season 3 makes its summer debut.

If you'll recall, season 2 ended on a cliffhanger with Simone (Geffri Maya) having to make a big decision, choosing between two men who claimed to love her. Plus, her aunt Amara (Kelly Jenrette) also had her own issues in love when Marcus' (Cory Hardrict) long-lost wife showed up.

So what can fans expect from the new episodes? Here’s everything we know about All American: Homecoming season 3.

All American: Homecoming season 3 release date

All American: Homecoming season 3 plot

Here is an official synopsis of the season:

"All American: Homecoming is a young adult drama set against the backdrop of the HBCU (Historically Black Colleges and Universities) experience at Bringston University, where Black Excellence is a way of life. The series follows Simone (Geffri Maya, All American), a young tennis hopeful from Beverly Hills, and her close circle of chosen family as they navigate the highs, lows, and sexiness of unsupervised early adulthood at the prestigious HBCU.

"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, Katy Keene), the team’s former Queen Bee, now looking to make her mark on the pro-circuit. JR (Sylvester Powell, Five Points) 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, One of Us Is Lying) forges new links with the friend group and becomes a regular at "family dinner" and Cam (Mitchell Edwards, All American), Keisha (Netta Walker, Come As You Are) and Nate (Rhoyle Ivy King, Monster) all struggle to balance their romantic relationships with their chosen career pursuits with varying degrees of success."
