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.
