All American spoilers follow.

It's official: the story of high-school football star Spencer James, inspired by the life of former pro NFL player Spencer Paysinger, will continue beyond the current chapter into season three.

The CW confirmed in January that it's coming back, so you can take that to the bank.

Here's everything you need to know.

All American season 3 release date: When will it air?

Season three will arrive on The CW in the US on Monday, January 18.

Annoyingly, it doesn't currently have a home outside the States, unlike a number of other CW shows, such as Riverdale and Arrow.

All American season 3 trailer: When can I watch it?

The trailer is likely to arrive mid-December/early January.

Expect a lot more of the same.

All American season 3 plot: What will happen?

Showrunner April Blair is keeping schtum about season three details, but it's a given that the action will pick up where we left off, with Crenshaw High looking like it could turn into a magnet school.

There's also a big question mark hanging over Spencer's injury and whether he's really better.

And Coach Baker has a lot on his plate, too. Not only has he moved out of the family home, there's also going to be some serious drama on the football field.

Chatting to PopCulture.com about the challenges facing Coach Baker in season three, Diggs said: "Now that they're switching this up and I'm gonna be literally coaching for the opposing team but still having a son that is the quarterback for the team I used to coach for, I have no idea how the writers are going to approach that."

Plus, will Simone and Jordan make a go of things after that kiss, and can Olivia and Asher go the distance?

Then there's Olivia, who is struggling to get a handle on her addiction issues, and with Tyrone's sister watching Coop, does that spell danger for him?

Expect lots of answers and even more questions to arise when the new season rolls in.
