I’m not sure what the hell BET is thinking with this one…
According to Hip Hollywood, the two main stars of its hit series The Game will not be returning next season.
According to a well placed source, HipHollywood.com has learned exclusively that Tia Mowry and Pooch Hall will NOT return to BET’s highest rated show, The Game.
It will be interesting to see how the show moves forward from here because their characters Derwin and Melanie are central to The Game’s plot. Our source also added that both are very busy right now, Hall is working on another project, while Mowery is still filming her Style network reality show.
The hope is that the two actors will have a chance to come back and end their storyline, but for now all we know is that they won’t be back for season 6.
To solidify this information, Tia took to Twitter to make the official announcement.
I was an enormous fan of The Game during it’s run on the CW, and while it definitely wasn’t the same, I still continued to watch when it was resurrected on BET. (I’m still mad that they destroyed the Kelly Pitts I loved though.) Now I haven’t caught every episode this season, but I will tune in from time to time. So this right here, makes NO DAMN SENSE! How do you continue a series without two of it’s biggest stars? I hope to God BET just pulls the plug before they run a good thing into the ground.
What do you guys think? I mean Tasha Mack is great, but would you still tune in to The Game sans Melanie and Derwin?
