Greg Berlanti recently gave an interview with Deadline where he confirmed All American was doing well on Netflix. Could that mean it will get renewed?

A little over a month ago All American ended its first season run with an excellent finale episode that left plenty of questions for us to ponder while we wait for the show’s potential return. Potential because The CW has yet to renew the freshman series.

Its ratings weren’t great for a network that already struggles with lower ratings than all the other major channels so its fate has been left up in the air for the time being. Most likely, The CW plans to announce the show’s official status at this year’s upfronts.

The good news for All American fans is The CW has a pretty lucrative Netflix deal. It was this deal that helped get Riverdale on the map between its first and second season. With their special agreement, all CW shows are put on Netflix within eight days of airing their season finale.

All American has been streaming for about a month now and based on an interview from Deadline with Greg Berlanti and the shows’ executive producers, the series has been performing well on the streaming giant.

Riverdale didn’t have exceptional ratings in its first season either but it got a hefty ratings bump during its second season as all the people who binged the show over the summer latched on to the live airings. Plus, All American already has a loyal following and being on Netflix has only helped to increase the social media chatter surrounding the show.

Per Deadline, Robbie Rogers (an executive producer on the show) and showrunner Nkechi Okoro claimed the following:

"The reaction on social media has been unbelievable. At one point, every 20-30 seconds, someone new was tweeting about the show and how much they loved it or how raw it was or how much it moved them."

Every 20-30 seconds? That’s impressive! They also mention the follower count on their official Twitters skyrocketing post-Netflix debut.

As someone who was a big fan of the show’s first season, I’m hopeful that the Netflix method will save the series. It has happened in the past and The CW is different from other networks in that next-day viewing through their app and its streaming numbers are super important to deciding whether or not a show will get renewed. Dynasty is another series that has greatly benefited from having an international Netflix deal and thus allowing it to keep coming back despite having lackluster ratings.

When we last left off with All American, we were left wondering whether or not Dylan is actually Cory’s son and Spencer was pondering yet another big life change. I would hate for the show to get canceled before we get to see the rest of Spencer’s journey. Fingers crossed that the renewal is on its way!
