Game over! Pooch Hall will not be returning to ‘The Game’.
Days after Tia Mowry‘s own announcement she wouldn’t be returning to BET’s hit show ‘The Game’, the network has released their own statement, and this time it involves actor Pooch Hall. The statement reads,
After five seasons on The Game, Pooch Hall and Tia Mowry will not return as regular cast members on season six on BET Networks.
As a result of Pooch’s involvement on a new project, BET is in the process of reworking the casting and storyline of the show. That said, we hope both Pooch and Tia will make several guest appearances.
While we will miss the incredible adventures of Melanie and Derwin on The Game, we appreciate all of their hard work, the laughs and wish them both the best on their future endeavors.
Season six will continue to feature the amazing Wendy Raquel Robinson, Coby Bell, Hosea Chanchez, Brandy Norwood and of course, Barry A. Floyd.
I’m not sure how many more seasons the show will have with these two departing but quite frankly since the network picked up the show it’s been losing steam. It’s turned into more of a soap opera than the series we all loved on the CW before it’s abrupt cancellation. Although I give BET for picking up the show when fans petitioned for it’s return they’ve also ruined it.
I wish Tia and Pooch Hall all the best, can’t wait to see what future projects they’ll have in store.
