Despite being the spinoff and Monday night companion with All American, the powers that be at The CW were slow to announce whether or not All American: Homecoming season 3 would actually come to fruition. Fans truly found themselves worried about the future of the show when The CW fall 2023-2024 schedule was announced and a new show was teased to be taking Homecoming's usual Monday night spot. 

To provide a little context about the delayed announcement on the status of the popular drama, last fall, media company Nexstar Media acquired The CW. With new ownership came a new vision for what the network would look like in the future, which meant a shakeup to its primetime schedule. Besides Spencer (Daniel Ezra) and crew over on All American, the only show saved originally from the fall 2022-2023 lineup was Walker.

In terms of canceled programs, Kung Fu, Tom Swift, Walker: Independence and The Winchesters all received the axe. Additionally, The Flash, Nancy Drew, Riverdale and DC's Stargirl were already slated to end their series' runs with their respective final seasons. Having said all that, only Homecoming, Superman & Lois and Gotham Knights remained on the cancellation bubble. 

So were these shows renewed? 

Thankfully for Homecoming watchers and fans of Superman & Lois, both series have officially been renewed by The CW. Respectively, the shows received a 13-episode (Homecoming) and 10-episode order (Superman & Lois). 

Speaking on this exciting news, The CW President of Entertainment, Brad Schwartz, stated the following:

"We are thrilled to bring All American: Homecoming and Superman & Lois back to The CW. These series are two of our strongest performers across our linear and digital platforms with some of the most passionate fanbases in all of television. We are grateful to our partners at Warner Bros. Television and Berlanti Productions for their continued collaboration, and we cannot wait to get started on the new seasons."

It looks like Homecoming fans will finally be able to see in season 3 if Simone (Geffri Maya) chooses Damon (Peyton Alex Smith) or Orlando (Martin Bobb-Semple). 

All American: Homecoming seasons 1 and 2 are now streaming on Netflix. You can also watch all episodes of the original All American series on the platform.
