After serving his five-year tenure as football coach and father figure Billy Baker, Taye Diggs exited the CW series in its fifth season. The Rent alum made his final appearance in the Feb. 13 episode, which saw his character die off-screen in a bus crash.
While Diggs said he was “having a great time” on All American, he started to get a “feeling” that it was time for him to move on in season four and he began having conversations with showrunner Nkechi Okoro Caroll about his departure.
“We’d been keeping in contact, so she had known, and we’d been talking,” he explained to TV Line. “And we decided how to go about it, and storylines and whatnot, so it was all above board, and everyone was in the know.”
However, Diggs did share that there is a “one hundred percent” chance that fans could see him return via flashbacks or dream sequences if it were solely up to him.
“I asked for it,” he confirmed. “I don’t know if it’s going to happen, but I’m open to it.”
