All American season 3 reveals Jordan and Simone got married in Las Vegas, and here’s what their marriage means for Simone’s spinoff show.
All American season 3 reveals Jordan Baker and Simone Hicks got married in Las Vegas, and that adds a huge twist to the story ahead of Simone’s spinoff show, All American: Homecoming. Simone joined All American’s story during season 2 when she tricked Jordan into believing that he was the father of her soon-to-be child. Although this proved to not be the case, Jordan and Simone fell in love and the two have had a strong relationship ever since.
Simone became a slightly more central character in All American season 3, partially due to The CW’s plans to give her a spinoff show. A backdoor pilot for the spinoff was included in season 3 that set up Simone for her college adventure. The description of All American: Homecoming teases Simone’s story focusing on pursuing her tennis career again, attending a historic Black college, and the expected young adult drama troubles (including romantic ones). The show will be co-led by a Chicago baseball player, Damon Sims. In the lead-up to All American: Homecoming, it seemed the best way to set up the next chapter in Jordan and Simone’s stories would be to end their relationship, but the show did the exact opposite.

All American season 3, episode 7 revealed that Jordan and Simone got married over the summer during the trip to Vegas. They originally planned to elope in secret, but Spencer and Olivia attended the ceremony in the end. This revelation came as a huge surprise as nothing else in season 3 indicated their relationship advanced to this level. They’ve had several rough patches recently but are still committed to making the relationship work. Once All American revealed their marriage, though, it’s difficult not to think about what it means for Simone’s spinoff. This is especially true considering there have been no signs that Jordan is moving to All American: Homecoming.
What Jordan’s Marriage Means For All American: Homecoming
Jordan is one of the main characters of All American and has continued to be involved in the show’s fourth season. While there’s a chance he could spend time as a recurring character on both shows, that could get complicated quickly. However, All American season 3 concluded with a reversal of Jordan and Simone’s marriage. This seemed to be a clear move to set up Simone going off on her own for All American: Homecoming. While many expected Jordan and Simone to break up during All American season 4 then, the series has not gone in that direction. They might not be married anymore, but Jordan and Simone’s relationship is as strong as ever heading into her spinoff show.
Will Jordan Appear In The All American Spinoff?
Seeing as how the couple is still together, that raises the question about if Jordan Baker could be in All American: Homecoming. There has not been any confirmation that actor Michael Evans Behling is part of Simone’s spinoff. His future with the All American universe seems to be with the main show, as he has dreams of continuing his football career. As long as Jordan and Simone stay together, though, the odds of Jordan appearing in All American: Homecoming remains fairly high.
