The Game Is Almost Back!!!!!

So I got back from a more difficult than necessary computer exam (gotta love college) and found this great news on my FB home page! And it's for real this time! According to BV Buzz.com, BET has struck a deal with Paramount to make new episodes of the hit TV show The Game, a football-themed sitcom previously shown on the CW that was canceled last year. The cancellation left me, and several other fans, majorly disappointed.

There was light at the end of the tunnel announced a short while after the cancellation. BET was working desperately to secure a deal with Paramount to make more episodes! However, it was taking so long that many people had given up hope. Oh, but not me! I mean, BET got its issues, but I refused to believe that The Game was over. There ain't that many black sitcoms out now as is. Done lost Girlfriends, Half and Half, The Parkers, etc, as far as new episodes. Reruns are great, but there is nothing like the anticipation of a fresh new episode of your favorite TV show! Knowing that there was a new episode of The Game coming every Friday last season got me excited all the time LOL So I believed that BET would work this out. And they did.

Now BET has to negotiate new contracts with the actors, which is expected to be done within the next two weeks. The show starred Tia Mowry, Pooch Hall, Wendy Raquel Robinson, Hosea Chanchez, Brittany Daniel, and Coby Bell. "The show will have the same production value, so the actors will make the same type of money they made when they did The Gamefor The CW," the source shared.

The only problem now is with Coby, who played Jason Pitts on the show. It was just announced that he is joining the cast of the hit USA show, Burn Notice. "He will likely still be able to work on 'The Game,' but only as a recurring character instead of being a series regular," the source explained. Which, if you watch the show on the regular, will probably mean that Jason and Kelly (played by Brittany) probably won't get back together, but Jason will still come around to see their daughter or something like that.

But it's okay. I can deal with one loss. The fact that the rest of the cast, including my fine loves Pooch and Hosea LOL, are back is good with me! Can't wait to see new episodes. Might be wishful thinking, but I'm hoping they get it back on line before the fall season starts back up!
