The CW has canceled All American: Homecoming after three seasons. The third, and now final, season will premiere July 8. The All American spinoff series is a young adult drama set against the backdrop of the HBCU (Historically Black Colleges and Universities) experience at Bringston University, where Black Excellence is a way of life. The series follows Simone, a young tennis hopeful from Beverly Hills, and her close circle of chosen family as they navigate the highs, lows, and sexiness of unsupervised early adulthood at the prestigious HBCU. Simone deals with the fallout from the romantic choice she made in Season 2, but romantic drama will take a back seat when she finds her tennis ambitions threatened. Her friends rally to support her, particularly Thea, the team’s former Queen Bee, now looking to make her mark on the pro-circuit. JR struggles to get his life back on track following his ousting from KEK and the completion of treatment for aplastic anemia. Meanwhile, Coach Marcus deals with unforeseen consequences of his wife’s return, Lando forges new links with the friend group and becomes a regular at “family dinner” and Cam, Keisha, and Nate all struggle to balance their romantic relationships with their chosen career pursuits with varying degrees of success. The cancellation leaves All American as the only scripted series left before the network was sold. 

Paramount+ has renewed Criminal Minds: Evolution for a third season. Season two will premiere June 6 with the first two episodes.

As the conspiracy unfolds, the Behavioral Analysis Unit (BAU) is met with an unexpected complication when serial killer Elias Voit negotiates a deal that transfers him to federal custody in the BAU’s own backyard. The team faces its biggest threat yet and cannot emerge unscathed from the mind-bending consequences. 

Season two of The Mole premieres June 28. The three week event will premiere episodes through July 12.

Among the players is one person who has secretly been designated “the Mole” and tasked with sabotaging the group’s money-making efforts. In the end, one player will outlast their competition and expose the Mole to win the prize pot.
