The Game Season 6

BET’s “The Game” will kick off its sixth season on March 26. It will also be the show’s 100th episode, marking a transition in plot and character dynamics. Tia Mowry-Hardict (Melanie Barnett-Davis), Pooch Hall (Derwin Davis) and Brittany Daniel (Kelly TK) have been ousted from Sunbeam-Sabers Island. Lauren London, Jay Ellis and season five staple, Brandy Norwood, will fill their pumps and cleats.

However, the sudden removal of the lead characters has deflated some of the anticipation for the premiere. “The Game”  writers hope to recoup these losses by phasing out Hall’s character on the first episode of the new season and immediately introducing Bryce “Blue” Westbook (Ellis).

“The Game” has lost the sizzle that attracted a dedicated viewership in the beginning. The sudden exit of the two central characters (Melanie and Derwin) is the removal of another brick from a crumbling castle. Despite the fans lost due to Mowry-Hardict and Hall’s departures, BET is still investing time, effort and monies into making season six a success. Promotional photos have been released and slated guest stars include Ciara.

I’ll be settling for re-runs of seasons one through three on Netflix.

  • Taking away Melanie and Derwin is like removing a brick? Try more like removing the whole dang castle and leaving behind a random tower!!! I honestly have no inclination to watch and i looooooooooooooooooooooved The Game. Even if Melanie and Derwin were still going to be there, the show has gone ridiculously downhill since BET took over. While i do kinda like the Jason/Chardonnay (sp?) storyline, i don’t like it enough to be bothered watching religiously like i used to. It would have to take something huge to get me anywhere near the excitement i once had for the show.

    • Constant Truth

      I agree. Something huge like getting Melanie and Derwin back!

    • Yes bring ding dong

  • no, its dated… they just need to give it up already…its just not that type of show.. but the first 3 seasons was good though..

  • Blasè

    love the promo though. everybody looks great.

  • Wanda

    My daughter and I enjoyed the writing on this show until it became a BET property.

    Sorry, but that line up looks corny. If 90% of your orignial cast is gone, including the two main characters of the show, it is indeed time to just hang it up. But I guess the ratings will speak for themselves….Personally, I haven’t watched an episode since Season 4. The writing just went downhill after Season 3.
