After a frustrating season for #Spelivia fans that thankfully ended in the season 5 finale with Spencer (Daniel Ezra) and Olivia (Samantha Logan) at least on a better path romantically, All American season 6 shows not only what happens next for the lovebirds, but what’s in the future for all the members of The Vortex.

It’s truly a testament to the show’s fanbase that All American was renewed back in January 2023, especially when you consider a number of The CW shows didn’t meet the same fate as media company Nexstar made changes to the fall lineup shortly after acquiring the network.

So what can you look forward to with the new episodes? Here’s everything we know about All American season 6.

Next episode of All American season 6

All American season 6 is back with a new episode this week after the season premiere left us with more questions than answers about the future of Spencer and Olivia.

The episode titled "Public Service Announcement" airs on Monday, April 8, at 8 pm ET/PT on The CW. Here is a synopsis of what's to come:

"As the team heads into their first football game of the season, the media's growing obsession with Spencer begins to take a toll on him. Olivia opens up to Jordan and Laura about what she's been working on."

Check out this promo for the episode.

All American is an original series on The CW network, and new episodes premiere directly on the television channel. Those who don’t have traditional cable/satellite TV can still watch season 6 episodes live as they air with a subscription to live-streaming TV services such as FuboTV, Hulu Live with TV and YouTube TV. Additionally, new episodes are likely to become available to stream the day after they air on The CW app. The app is not only free, but it also doesn’t require you to log in.

No word yet as to when the new season will premiere in the UK.

Here's what you can look forward to seeing in season 6 of the show:

"Season 6 finds Spencer (Daniel Ezra) and his friends in momentous new chapters of their lives. Now juniors at GAU, Spencer and Jordan (Michael Evans Behling) are officially eligible to enter the NFL draft, placing Spencer, especially, at the center of the media spotlight. Egos soon clash when a new addition joins the GAU coaching staff and shifts the team dynamics.

"Meanwhile, Olivia (Samantha Logan) returns to L.A. changed by her time in London and invigorated by a new project to honor her father’s legacy. After being apart, Spencer and Olivia try to reconnect as new versions of themselves. Layla (Greta Onieogou) also explores a new version of herself as she adds 'club owner' to her impressive list of titles. While still happily engaged to Jordan, she faces growing pressures that test their relationship and her mental health.

"Coop (Bre-Z) flexes her legal muscles while faithfully supporting Patience (Chelsea Tavares) through her healing journey, as Patience prepares for a looming legal battle against the superfan that attacked her last season. Asher (Cody Christian) navigates life as a new parent while Laura (Monét Mazur) settles into the next stage of her personal and professional life. And through it all, Grace (Karimah Westbrook) remains a constant anchor for Spencer, and everyone else, when they need her the most, while dealing with her sons growing up too fast. Together, the entire group discovers that, even in their toughest moments, the best path forward is to seize today and lean on each other."
