The third season of the series “All American” (All American: Homecoming) came out on Netflix in the U.S. and instantly rocketed to the top of the charts. In another article we will talk about whether and when the fourth season will be released on Netflix (the answer is yes), but for now we want to focus on whether the spin-off series, All American: Homecoming, will appear on Netflix.
All American, created by April Blair, is arguably the most popular series still on Netflix as part of an expansive agreement with The CW under which all series through 2019 will air on Netflix.
Those who watch season 3, which consists of 19 episodes, will notice that episode 17 is slightly different.
That’s because episode 17, titled Homecoming, is what’s called the pilot episode. This means that the episode intentionally lays down the beginning of a new show. Fans of “The Office” will remember that NBC tried this in season 9 with what was supposed to be “The Farm” with Dwight Schrute, but it went nowhere.
A spin-off of “All America” has been in development since 2020. TVLine reported in December that the project was moving forward.
Simone Hicks’ character will return in the spin-off. The pilot also starred Peyton Alex Smith, Corey Hardrict, Kelly Jenrette, Sylvester Powell, Netta Walker and Camille Hyde, who will also appear in the spin-off.
No release date has yet been set for the spin-off, but the big question we want an answer to now is whether it will appear on Netflix.
Will All American: Homecoming be on Netflix?
First, if you’re outside of the U.S., the answer is almost certainly no. Netflix internationally is not streaming the previous three seasons of the main series and will almost certainly not be getting a new spin-off.
In the U.S., the answer is still unknown, but don’t get your hopes up.
As we said above, Netflix and The CW broke off their primary relationship in 2019. The deal going forward is that all series through 2019 will continue to air on Netflix, and all new series will be sold separately.
The problem, however, is that all series so far have only been released on two providers, HBO Max and Paramount+.
In the case of All American, the series is distributed by both CBS Studios and Warner Brothers Television, which means it could end up on both of those services or sold to Netflix, but nothing is certain at this point.
Based on the top 10 data, we can assume that Netflix should try to get the show, given the connection to the main series, but we’ll have to wait and see.
The only guarantee we can give at this point is that the series will be on The CW and its Seed app, which has been greatly improved since the Netflix deal ended.
