All American Season 4 was released early this year. Those who have finished streaming the series are curious to know when Season 5 will be released. That's because they want to get answers after the cliffhanger ending from the last season.

The good news is that The CW already renewed the show for a fifth season. This means that new episodes could only be a few months away. But since Netflix has an agreement with The CW, it means that Netflix subscribers will have to wait a week until the final episode airs. So the big question now is: when is All American Season 5 getting released on The CW?

All American Season 5 is slated to return to The CW this fall. To be more specific, the fifth season will premiere on Monday, October 10, 2022 at 8 pm ET; which follows the previous seasons that were also released in October. Succeeding episodes will be released every Monday, which means the fifth season will run until May 2023. Eight days after the last episode, the entire season will be available to stream on Netflix.

On The CW, the schedule of All American is followed by the spinoff series, All American: Homecoming Season 2. This show is also slated for a release on the same day as All American Season 5.

All American Season 5 Story

All American is a sports series based on Spencer Paysinger's life. The retired NFL star serves as a consulting producer on the show too. There has not yet been any plot description released by The CW. But judging from the cliffhanger we saw on the previous season, we can already tell that it will focus more on Spencer James (played by Daniel Ezra)'s personal life.

All American Season 4 ended with a possible breakup between Spencer and Olivia (played by Samantha Logan) since Spencer discovered his girlfriend was writing an expose on his GAU football coach. In an interview with TVLine, Ezra revealed that his character will try to get Olivia back. "In that moment, he wants to fight for his relationship. I think it's the most important thing to him. [Having] her now, suddenly, in direct conflict with his football dreams… I don’t think he ever entertained any scenario where the two of them would be on actual opposing sides.”

And props off to Coop (played by Bre-Z) for deciding to pursue her criminal justice career instead of dating Patience (played by Chelsea Tavares) or Skye (played by Madison Shamoun). Meanwhile, Grace (played by Karimah Westbrook) got engaged to Principal Carter (played by Lamon Archey). Another interesting pairing to look out for in All American Season 5 is the brewing romance between Jordan (played by Michael Evans Behling) and Layla (played by Greta Onieogou).
