In a highly unusual and unexpected movie, All American: Homecoming, the spin-off to the main All American series has dropped onto Netflix today. It’s the first title to come to Netflix outside the conclusion of The CW’s output deal with Netflix several years ago.

All American is extremely popular on Netflix so it makes sense that the streamer wants the spin-off too but why didn’t HBO Max want it? Time will tell.

Here’s what you can expect from the spin-off series:

“A young tennis hopeful and an elite baseball player chase their dreams while dealing with the never-ending hurdles of college life.”
