After 9 seasons, It’s A Wrap BET Says Goodbye to The Game, it’s been confirmed The Game will be coming to an end upon request of the shows creators!
Ever since Tia Mowry and Pooch Hall were written out of the show has been on a gradual decline. CelebNMusic247.com previously reported that The Game Renewed to 2016, but this will be it’s last season. It seems the storylines have run out of ways to go, except out, so it made sense that the creators of the series have requested the show to end after season 9.
Five months after renewing Mara Brock Akil’s The Game for an eighth season, BET this evening announced that its flagship comedy will be coming to an end. But before it bows out, The Game will get one more season, 9, which will be its last. Filming is underway on both Seasons 8 and 9, which will begin airing in early 2015.
The Game was picked up by BET in 2009 when the comedy was cancelled by the CW after three seasons.
BET said in a statement on its website:
“All good things must come to an end and after celebrating four successful seasons of The Game on BET, the Network has announced production is underway on the show’s final two seasons,”
“In January 2011 the cult following of The Game proved that the show was a fan favorite with 7.7 million viewers for its premiere debut on BET. With seasons eight and nine, we’re excited to end on a high note by giving Sabers fans a chance to bid farewell to their favorite players on and off the field.”
