All American: Homecoming is a spinoff series of All American. The backdoor pilot aired on July 5, 2021, during the third season of All American. All American: Homecoming is a young adult sports drama set against the backdrop of the HBCU experience.
From the executive producers of All American, All American: Homecoming is a young adult sports drama set against the backdrop of the HBCU (Historically Black Colleges and Universities) experience at Bringston University, where Black excellence is a way of life. The series follows Simone, a young tennis hopeful from Beverly Hills who is trying to fight her way back to great after some time away from the court, and Damon, an elite baseball player from Chicago who is carrying the weight of the world on his shoulders.
After Simone’s aunt Amara Patterson, a journalism teacher and activist, exposes a scandal that threatens to derail the school’s beloved baseball program, new coach Marcus Turner is determined to bring a championship back to Bringston the honest way — with Damon’s help. Damon will adjust to his new normal with fellow baseball player and childhood friend JR by his side. Meanwhile, as Simone struggles to find her footing, she will get a little guidance from Thea, the super-competitive queen bee of the Bringston tennis team, and Keisha, the school’s unofficial mayor, who will help Simone learn how to live her best life. As they contend with the high stakes of college sports, Simone and Damon will also navigate the highs, lows, and sexiness of unsupervised early adulthood at a prestigious HBCU.
