What happened to JJ on All-American? Who plays JJ in American?

All American is an American sports drama television series, created by April Blair that premiered on The CW on October 10, 2018. Daniel Ezra plays Spencer Paysinger, a professional American football player, in a series based on his life.

What happened to JJ on All-American?

There will be no JJ Parker in Season 6 of the CW’s All American. 

Since the 2018 pilot, Clowdus, 32, has played JJ Parker, an outside linebacker who later became a quarterback on the show. Having been a part of the show since its inception, Hunter Clowdus has left before the next season. In Season 1, Clowdus debuted as a recurring cast member; in Season 4, he was promoted to series regular. JJ Parker was a standout player for the Beverly Hills Eagles who started as an outside linebacker before switching to quarterback.

Season 5 concluded with JJ’s storyline “organically wrapped,” which clarified Clowdus’s exit from the show. 

The CW’s President of Entertainment, Brad Schwartz, said, “As long as they keep rating, there is no reason why we can’t keep them.” The third season of All American: Homecoming is scheduled to premiere this summer.

Producers Nkechi Okoro Carroll, Sarah Schechter, Mike Herro, David Strauss, John A. Norris, and Jameal Turner are behind All American. Monet Mazur, Daniel Ezra, Greta Onieogou, Michael Evans Behling, Cody Christian, and Samantha Logan are the show’s main cast members.

Does All-American have a seventh season?

All American’s seventh season is not confirmed. The program has established itself as one of The CW’s most dependable original series, drawing high ratings and mostly favorable reviews from critics.

However, while All American’s chances of renewal are positive, the show might be experiencing major changes that could affect its endearing cast list moving forward.

A new report about the ongoing sports drama suggested that budget cuts are likely to happen, similar to what was recently done to its spinoff, All American: Homecoming. 

All-American may be impacted by The CW’s recent efforts to cut back on production expenses and licensing fees for its different shows, which also raises the possibility that some well-known cast members may be replaced to save money.
