TVLine has learned exclusively that the network is in the early stages of developing an offshoot of the football-themed drama. The potential new series — slated to be introduced during a regular episode of All American‘s upcoming third season (aka a backdoor spinoff) — would be set at a a historically Black university and follow Geffri Maya‘s college-bound Simone Hicks.
Reps for The CW and Warner Bros. declined to comment for this story.
The character of Simone was introduced in All American‘s second season. She is entering her senior year at Beverly High and the girlfriend of Jordan Baker (Michael Evans Behling), whom she led to believe was the father of her unborn child. It turned out that the father is a student at Simone’s previous school, Westlake High.
Maya’s previous credits include recurring stints on black-ish and Grey’s Anatomy spinoff Private Practice.
All American returns with Season 3 on Monday, Jan. 18 at 8/7c (watch the exclusive trailer here).
