All American spin-offs eyed The CW
Spinoff-crazy CW sees All American as its next franchise opportunity.
TVLine has learned exclusively that the network is in the early stages of developing an offshoot of the soccer drama. The potential new series to be featured in a regular episode of the upcoming third season of All American (aka the backdoor spinoff) is set to take place at a historically black university and follow Geffri Maya’s college-bound Simone Hicks.
Representatives from The CW and Warner Bros. declined to comment on the story.
The character of Simone was featured in the second season of All American. She begins her senior year at Beverly High and the girlfriend of Jordan Baker (Michael Evans Behling), whom she believed was the father of her unborn child. The father turned out to be a student at Simone’s former school, Westlake High.
Maya’s previous credits include recurring stints at Black-ish and Grey’s Anatomy Spinoff Private Practice.
All Americans are returning with Season 3 on Monday, January 18 at 8 / 7c (see the exclusive trailer here).
