All American season 5 episode 8’s release date is not until 2023, and here is why The CW’s football drama is on hiatus for so long and what to expect.
All American season 5 episode 8’s release date will not come until 2023, and here is why The CW show is on hiatus for so long. The fifth season of the hit football drama has once again featured plenty of big changes for Spencer James and his friends. Viewers have seen Olivia Baker’s investigation of GAU’s head coach become a prominent storyline, which came to a head with the coach’s firing and GAU’s football program undergoing an investigation. All American season 5 episode 7 left Spencer and Jordan Baker’s futures up in the air, but viewers will have to wait longer than normal to see what happens next.
After All American season 5’s debut in October 2022, The CW show based on Spencer Paysinger’s true story has mostly released new episodes every Monday night. However, the show has now gone on its fall break after the seventh episode. All American season 5 episode 8’s release date will not come in December 2022 as some might expect. The show is confirmed to return in 2023 on The CW, with All American season 5 episode 8’s release date is confirmed to be January 23, 2023. This means audiences will have to wait about a month longer than normal to see what comes next for the show.
Why All American Season 5 Episode 8’s Release Date Is So Far Away
The delayed release for All American season 5 episode 8 is not uncommon. The show has a habit of going on its fall break near the end of the year and taking several weeks off before returning, as All American season 4 had a similar hiatus. This is standard for most cable channels, especially when it comes to shows that have large episode counts and still need to finish filming. All American season 5’s hiatus gives the show time to continue filming before presumably taking a break for the holidays and not falling behind.
Everything We Know About All American Season 5’s Remaining Story
When All American season 5 does return from its hiatus, viewers will finally get to see several massive storylines continue. The teaser for All American season 5 episode 8 does not show much about what comes next for Spencer or Jordan after the latter decides to leave GAU. It instead teases how their individual love lives will progress. Jordan is shown leaving an upset Layla, while Spencer is continuing to pursue another girl – even though he might still have feelings for Olivia.
The one reveal that does appear to come from All American season 5 episode 8’s trailer is what Billy Baker does after the bountygate scandal and being offered GAU’s head coaching job. He appears to be on campus and interacts with the school’s AD Rick Barnes, as well as former GAU coach Garrett. This should be a sign that Billy agrees to become GAU’s next head coach in All American season 5 and finally leave South Crenshaw behind him.
