How many episodes are in All American season 3?

The CW app allows people to catch up with episodes the following day for free.

One factor worth bearing in mind, which could affect the overall episode count, is the coronavirus pandemic.
Lockdown in America saw the film and television grind to a temporary halt in 2020 as infection rates rose and a slew of programmes were cut short including Riverdale and NCIS.
Hopefully, this won’t be the case for All American and the third run will be completed without any delays.
Here is a list of episode titles from All American season 3 so far:
Episode 1. Seasons Pass
Episode 2. How To Survive in South Central
Episode 3. High Expectations
Express.co.uk will update this article in due course when more episode names are confirmed.
All American follows Spencer James (played by Daniel Ezra), who moves to Beverly Hills to play American Football.
After the events of season two, the third run sees Spencer returning to his old stomping ground of South Crenshaw High.
The new series will also address the Black Lives Matter movement, which features prominently in the trailer.
But the show won’t be addressing the coronavirus pandemic because it’s more focused on the life of Paysinger before the global health crisis.
Season three will be starting at the end of summer as the characters come back together after some time apart.
They will have had their own experiences during this time with some major revelations from this period away.
Fans can expect more secrets to come to the fore as friendships and relationships are tested while tensions fly high amid the backdrop of high stakes American football.
Speaking about the forthcoming run, All American’s showrunner Nkechi Okoro Carroll said: “We were always going to continue to do stories that revolve around racial inequality and racial identity and being authentic about our portrayal of Black youth in America.
“It has always been a fabric of our show. And ironically, the story line we’ll be doing this season that really sort of digs into the social justice angle, I pitched in February to the studio and networks, and then it was sort of art imitating life imitating art as stuff started to unfold.”
Carroll added to Entertainment Weekly: “So on the show, we’re going to continue to do what we do, which is shed light on these issues in a very personal way for our characters and in a very authentic and organic way for our characters, because unfortunately our teens don’t get to escape some of these harsh realities.”
All American has proved a big hit with viewers in the Stateside able to watch the show on Netflix if they don’t have The CW.
Sadly though, All American has yet to make it across the Atlantic with the show not currently available to watch in the UK.
All American season 3 airs on The CW in America on Mondays at 8/7c
