All American is getting a spinoff titled All American: Homecoming that is set to follow season four of the hit CW show. The spinoff will center baseball superstar Damon Sims (Peyton Alex Smith) from Chicago and professional tennis hopeful Simone Hicks (Geffri Maya) from Los Angeles as they pursue their athletic dreams at the HBCU Bringston University in Atlanta. Along the way, the star athletes will navigate sports at an elite level, life as young adults, and, of course, scandal.
