April Blair’s sports drama series, All American will soon air a new episode this week. With Spencer’s world being turned upside down, there’s no saying what the future might hold for GAU. Jordan has decided to leave as well, but the plot twist that surprised viewers the most was Barnes asking Billy to be the head coach.
First seen on television in late 2018, All American follows the story of a young aspiring footballer who is transferred to a different school to have a better future in the sport. After 5 seasons, Spencer has now become one of the best-known players among local teams. The show started based on the life of Spencer Paysinger but now is mostly based on April Blair’s imagination.
With Daniel Ezra playing the lead, the show also focuses on the lives of people around him, and how they grow along with Spencer. Filming for the 5th season began in March 2022, and it finally premiered on October 10th, 2022. Just earlier this year, All American was said to be in production for its 6th installment.
The 5th season began with Spencer and Olivia breaking up, but still occasionally hanging out together. Coop was focused on improving her Law career, while JJ and Asher had things to look forward to as well. At present, Coop is moving ahead one step at a time in her career. JJ has left the gang for now, while Jordan is all set to move to a different university.
On one hand, there’s happiness for Olivia, Jordan, and Coop, while on the other things have been hard for Spencer and Patience. Spencer wants to build GAU again, while Patience is struggling with the hate comments she has been getting lately.
