All American: Homecoming has experienced some behind-the-scenes changes during its hiatus, namely the demotions of Peyton Alex Smith (Damon Sims) and Kelly Jenrette (Amara Patterson) from series regulars to recurring players. Cory Hardrict (Marcus Turner) and Rhoyle Ivy King (Nathaniel Hardin) will serve as series regulars on reduced guarantees, meaning they’ll appear in fewer episodes, while Geffri Maya (Simone Hicks), Sylvester Powell (JR Raymond), Netta Walker (Keisha McCalla), Mitchell Edwards (Cam Watkins) and Camille Hyde (Thea Mays) are all returning as full-fledged series regulars.

Martin Bobb-Semple, who plays one of Simone’s suitors Lando Johnson, has also been upped to series regular for the upcoming third season.
