All American Homecoming is a sports drama that airs on The CW and is created by Nkechi Okoro Carroll. The series is about a young woman named Simone who leaves her boyfriend behind spinoffAngeles and moves to Atlanta to attend Bringston University to make her dreams about becoming a pro tennis player come true. The show focuses not only on Simone but also on a baseball player named Damon and his coach Marcus.
The series aired on The CW from February to May 2022 with 13 episodes, and viewers may already wonder about the show’s future. Is there going to be an All American Homecoming Season 2? We have the answer, as always.
All American Homecoming Season 2
At the beginning of May 2022, the series was already renewed for a 2nd season. This was even before the release of the final 2 episodes of the season. The information we have on Season 2 is quite limited, but we know, for instance, that Rhoyle Ivy King, who was only a recurring character in the 1st season, will be a series regular in the 2nd.
The release date for Season 2 is yet to be provided by The CW, but we can make a guess based on the filming dates of the series and the date it aired. The principal photography for the 1st season started in September 2021 and ended in late November. The 1st episode of Season 1, “Start Over,” aired on February 21, 22, meaning 3 months after the filming ended. This suggests that the series’ filming the post-production phases last only 5-6 months. So, we can see the 2nd season at the beginning of 2023.
All American Homecoming Spinoff
As you probably know, All American Homecoming is a spinoff to another The CW series, All American (2018- ). One of the side characters from the original series, Simone, is one of the lead characters in the spinoff. All American continues, and it was renewed for a 5th season just a few months ago. Therefore, the success of the spinoff can be attributed, for some part, to the impact of the original. Still, the spinoff is getting more critical acclaim than the original.
The 1st season of All American received a 92% rating on Rotten Tomatoes, whereas the rating for the spinoff is currently at a 100%. Who knows, maybe another spinoff can come out of this spinoff. Honestly, we wouldn’t say no to that.
