Has All American been cancelled? Recently, The CW boss Mark Pedowitz discussed the future of the TV show, Deadline reports.
The sports drama centers on Spencer James (Daniela Ezra), a rising high school football player and an A student at Compton’s South Crenshaw High who is transferred to Beverly Hills. The cast also includes Taye Diggs, Samantha Logan, Bre-Z, Greta Onieogou, Monet Mazur, Michael Evans Behling, Cody Christian, Karimah Westbrook, and Jalyn Hall.
During this year’s winter TCA press conference, Pedowitz said All American has not been cancelled even though it wasn’t included in The CW’s recent slate of renewals. Instead, Pedowitz says the network will decided the show’s future in spring:
We are extremely proud of that show. We think the production quality is up there with Jane the Virgin and Crazy Ex Girlfriend. It has nothing do with the show. W’re going to sit down in May and determine the wants and the needs are about that moment. It’s positive. It’s a show I’m proud to support.”
A Look at the Ratings:
So far, All American hasn’t fared so well in the ratings. Eleven episodes in, the series is averaging a .24 rating in the 18-49 demo and 705,000 viewers. However, while the numbers aren’t great, The CW does frequently renew series with low ratings.
What do you think? Are you watching All American? Would you watch a second season?
