The CW has renewed its hit show “All American” for a sixth season, just ahead of the show’s Season 5 premiere.
“Over the last five seasons, ALL AMERICAN has established itself as one of the all-time CW flagship franchises,” Brad Schwartz, President of Entertainment at The CW, said in a statement. “ALL AMERICAN is not only the network’s youngest series, but also the strongest performer when combining all our platforms.”
“All American,” which held the No. 1 spot for the most-watched linear series for adults ages 18–49 on the network, is inspired by the real-life story of professional American football player Spencer Paysinger, who is played by Daniel Ezra on the show. “All American” is also the largest show in total audience across all platforms, the network said in a press release.
The series comes from the house of Greg Berlanti’s Berlanti Productions in association with Warner Bros. Television and CBS Studios. Berlanti serves as an executive producer alongside Nkechi Okoro Carroll, Sarah Schechter, John A. Norris, Jameal Turner, Mike Herro and David Strauss.
“All American” is set air its fifth season on The CW beginning Monday, Jan. 23.
“We look forward to continuing our collaboration with showrunner Nkechi Okoro Carroll, Greg Berlanti, Sarah Schechter, the entire creative team and the incredible cast for another season of captivating family drama,” Schwartz said.
