All American Gets Renewed For 2nd Season

All American gets a 2nd season on the CW, after Netflix push.

The drama series was the only fall CW series not to get a renewal in January. Despite strong reviews and a loyal following, the series had delivered modest ratings on the network. But since it started streaming on Netflix, it has gained new fans (like me) and become the topic of social media chatter.

About the show:

Spencer James (Daniel Ezra) is a rising high school football player and A student at South Crenshaw High, but when coach Billy Baker (Taye Diggs) recruits him to join his team in Beverly Hills, Spencer’s mother, Grace, and his best friend, Coop, convince him it’s an opportunity he has to seize. Forced to move in with Billy and his family to protect his transfer permit to Beverly, Billy’s son Jordan, who is also the starting quarterback, is less than thrilled to be sharing his father’s attention — or the team spotlight. While Spencer struggles to find his footing, he makes an unlikely friend in Jordan’s sister, who is struggling with her own demons.
