Though a number of shows from The CW are getting shorter seasons due to the extra time and cost it takes to make a show during the pandemic, All American Season 3 is expected to get a full 16-episode order, meaning episodes are expected to air weekly in the same time slot until late spring.

How to watch All American Season 3 online

Until the season ends, the best way to watch the season online is via The CW website and app. Shortly after each episode airs, it will be available to watch at cwtv.com or on the app. The network makes the last five episodes of the show available to watch for free in the U.S. with ads at any time.
