All American Season 5 Episode 16: Release Date, Trailer, and Fan Reactions
All American, the hit US TV sports drama created by April Blair, has captured the hearts of viewers since its premiere on The CW network in October 2018. The show, inspired by the real-life story of professional American football player Spencer Paysinger and starring Daniel Ezra, recently returned for its fifth season. However, fans eagerly awaiting the release of episode 16 will need to exercise some patience, as the episode’s air date has been delayed.
All American Season 5 Episode 16 Release Date
The CW has scheduled All American season 5 episode 16 to premiere on Monday, April 17th, 2023, at 8 pm ET. The previous episode, titled United In Grief, aired on Monday, March 27th, marking the beginning of a two-week hiatus. Consequently, audiences must wait an additional two weeks for the next installment, resulting in a three-week gap between episodes.
Although an official episode count for season 5 has not been announced, it is predicted that there will be approximately 20 episodes in total. The upcoming episode, titled My Name Is, already has a promo available for fans to watch.
Fan Reactions to the Hiatus
Audiences have expressed their displeasure with the hiatus, particularly considering the most recent break occurred just three episodes ago. Some fans have taken to Twitter to voice their frustration with the disrupted schedule.
