All American: Homecoming S2

 The new season of the successful All American spin-off series All American: Homecoming lands on Showmax on 16 June. Season 2 continues the journey of a young tennis hopeful and an elite baseball player  as they contend with the high stakes of college sports while navigating the highs, lows and sexiness of unsupervised early adulthood at a prestigious historically Black college.

Created by Nigerian-American Nkechi Okoro, the young adult sports drama’s debut season landed a 100% critics’ rating on Rotten Tomatoes, with Variety calling it a “a big-hearted, worthy spinoff.”

The new season sees Simone Hicks (GeffriMaya, reprising her role from All American) and Damon Sims (Peyton Alex Smith from Legacies) return for a new semester of freshman challenges – on the court and off.  Emmy nominee Kelly Jenrette (The Handmaid’s Tale, Manhunt: Unabomber) returns as Amara Patterson, while Mitchell Edwards reprises his role as Cam Watkins alongside other familiar faces, including a guest appearance from All American’s Spencer James, Daniel Ezra.
