All Rise Season 3 continues to be released weekly on OWN (Oprah Winfrey Network) Tuesdays at 8. There are still 13 episodes left until the season’s final, and it is yet to be announced whether the series will return for another season. Almost everyone was shocked when the controversy surrounding the showrunner and writers came out in August 2020, a few months before Season 2 was released. 5 series writers left their job while complaining about clashing with the showrunner Greg Spottiswood over issues of race and how people of color are depicted in the series.
After many complaints about Spottiswood, an African-American female corporate coach was hired to guide the showrunner. In May 2021, the show was canceled by CBS but later picked up by OWN. An important reason why the show was worth bringing back was its incredible cast members who gave their best for their roles.
