After much anticipation, a re-launch date for the former CW hit sitcom, “The Game”, has been set to re-air on BET in 2011. Word is BET has decided to disassociate themselves from “derogatory” (i.e. “Frankie and Neffe”) programming in favor of original scripted and unscripted programs, which will also include a dance competition series and sitcom produced by Queen Latifah’s Flavor Unit called “Let’s Stay Together.”
Clutch touched on this matter in October 2009, when cast member Drew Sidora told S2S Magazine that the canceled CW show may return to the small screen. However, after months of silence, many “Saber” fans began to wonder if they would see their favorite Sunbeams and respective players reprise their roles ever again.
There’s been no word as to cast or storyline adjustments in light of their extended hiatus, but for true “Game” fans, the mere acknowledgment of their return is satisfaction enough. And while BET’s taking a stab at resurrecting this Mara Brock Akil joint, would it kill them to consider giving “Girlfriend’s” a finale episode with Joan’s wedding, and Toni’s amicable return to LA?
