EXCLUSIVE: We’ll be seeing more of Patience in the upcoming third season of All American. Chelsea Tavares, who has recurred as the fan-favorite character since Season 1, has been promoted to series regular for Season 3 of the CW drama.
Tavares’ Patience is a student at South Crenshaw and ride or die girlfriend to Coop (Bre-z). An aspiring musician whose star is on the rise, she has to fight to do her music, her way. Tavares appeared in 19 episodes over the first two seasons.
Season 2 of All American found Spencer James (Daniel Ezra), now a football State Champion, with a tough decision to make. Does he stay in Beverly Hills and play for Coach Billy Baker (Taye Diggs)?
