The third season of the CW series All American is coming. It was recently announced Season 3 of the football drama will premiere on Jan. 18. Taye Diggs, who plays the role of Billy Baker, recently spoke to PopCulture.com this past summer and talked about getting back to work.
"This is what I know: I know that I'm excited to go back to work because very rarely when you're on a show that is doing well you usually know the choices you're gonna make as an actor because I've been playing this character for two seasons," Diggs said. "But now that they're switching this up and I'm gonna be literally coaching for the opposing team but still having a son that is the quarterback for the team I used to coach for, I have no idea how the writers are going to approach that."
All American focuses on football star Spencer James who transfers from Crenshaw High School to Beverly Hills High in California. The story is based on the life of Spencer Paysinger who won a Super Bowl with the New York Giants in 2011. Here's a look at what we know about Season 3 of All American.

Back in January, the CW decided to renew All American and its 12 other scripted series that weren't ending following the 2019-2020 season. The interesting thing about this is All American Season 2 wasn't going to happen. But the show gained a lot of popularity on Nexflix and it still going strong.prevnext
