The wait is over. Tonight, The Game returns to BET for another drama-filled season.

Last year, BET scored a massive hit when they picked up The Game, proving that black audiences were hungry for shows that featured characters who looked like them. Although some complained about the direction of the show, millions continued to tune in each week, and The Game’s debut was the most watched sitcom debut in cable history. This season BET is hoping fans continue to support the show and tune in.

Last season ended on a cliffhanger, and according to the network’s press release, we’re in store for even more twists and turns.


“The seduction continues as infidelity, ambition, secrets and betrayal collide to make season five the most compelling yet.  Picking up where it left off, Melanie (Tia Mowry Hardrict) contends with Derwin’s (Pooch Hall) abortion accusation; Malik (Hosea Chanchez) and Tasha (Wendy Raquel Robinson) struggle to wrangle an intoxicated Jenna (Tika Sumpter); and Kelly (Brittany Daniel) is still off in the world trying to find herself, leaving Jason (Coby Bell) forced to come to terms with his feelings towards Black women.”

Several high-profile guests will also join the cast this season. Brandy, Shawn Marion, Estelle, Selita Ebanks, DeRay Davis, Nene Leakes, Rockmond Dunbar, and  Loretta Devine will also be popping up this season.

With several high-profile guests and more drama than a reality show, The Game just might be must-see TV this season.

Check out a sneak peek of season 5 of The Game. Will you be tuning in?

    No, because it’s not funny. It’s a bunch of pretty black people “acting” in a melodramatic soap opera. They should put it on daytime tv! I hate to say it but I can’t watch any of the black sitcoms because they rarely make me laugh. Get better writers, better actors or both! I don’t know how it happen but we seemed to have regressed since the 90’s sitcoms like Living Single, A Different World and even Martin. They weren’t written brilliantly but the characters were compelling.

    The Game and Let’s Stay Together are two of the lackest shows. Seems like the writers are just throwing anything together.

      Thought I was the only person who felt that way. I want to luv “Let’s Stay…” but my mind will NOT allow me to. “The Game” has a little more substance but I still can’t make myself watch it.
      More and more shows are succumbing to this “fast, quick and in a hurry” mentality — and it isn’t limited to a specific group or viewers/audience (Big Bang Theory…I tried watching that show one day and my brain said, “WHY?”)
