BET Picks up The Game for new Season

We just found out that bet is bringing back “” for new episodes.

While speaking with Drew Sidora earlier this week, the singer-actress dished some great news for fans of “The Game.” “The show is getting picked up, so for people that have been petitioning and wondering, it is coming back to bet. So, hopefully, you will see me back,” Drew told S2S exclusively. “It is official. The deal has been done.”

Buzz of a partnership between show creator bet and CBS TV that would reincarnate the once-cancelled sitcom began spreading in June. Last anyone heard, the network said it was close to a deal, but nothing was final. This news comes with the catch that production on another season of “The Game” hasn’t started just yet. And we heard that she show might actually be taping in Atlanta now.

“Right now, they’re just trying to figure out when it’s going to actually come back, as far as when we start filming the new episodes and things like that,” said Drew. “But bet has picked it up.” “The Game” has always had a wonderfully loyal fan base, and those who tried to convince the CW to keep it had a big hand in its resurrection.

“Everybody that petitioned—believe it or not—about the show getting cancelled, that is really what ultimately had bet even looking to pick it up,” she explained. “It was really dope. Everybody really loves the show and supports the show, so all I can say is keep watching.” But with the show is headed to a new home field does that mean all of the original cast will be coming along with it?

“I can’t say that for sure, but you will probably see a lot of the characters back,” Drew dished. She’s hoping to get a recurring spot on the show, reprising the self-named role of Drew Sidora. The big question there will be, if she does return, what does that mean for Derwin Davis and his new bride Melanie?

“Just bring people up to date with that because it was never resolved. It was something we always to bring back; it was all about the great timing of it,” Drew said. “I think now people are going to want to see what happens with Mel and I. You know, you might see us out somewhere. And the same with Derwin.” [source]

  19. I am sooooo excited to hear the game is back. I luv you BET. Everyone on youtube was praying for this show to come back and finally its here. I hope all of the original characters are back because it wouldn’t be the same if there were new characters. My seat belt is ready to be buckle. I am ready to see season 4. when is the new season coming!!!!

  20. Well, when is the new season going to start…someone needs to keep us updated because there is hardly any entertaining televison, i’m sick of all the vampires and “reality garbage” that’s all over the place, i’m really looking forward to the next season, when does it start!!!!

  21. Thank God its another season I needs to know whats going to happen on saeason 4 and when does the new season start! The cast of the game and the TV show alone has a lot of fans

  22. THANK YOU BET for picking up this show. I love this show because is seems so real. Especially the whole concept of dealing with relationship issues and balancing day-to-day life. Please keep the original cast members. MUCH LOVE to BET

  23. Wow this is one of my fav shows…i even watch the rerounds but b.e.t please try to pick up the paste a little faster. I want to know what happens with derwin, mel and janay…what about my man jason and malik…damn i could go on 4ever anyways would love it to be on asap…

  24. Omg like I can’t wait 4 the game to come back on like I watch it everday b4 I go to work….itz always great wen bet do da mini marathon of da show on saturdays….I love da whole derwin and melanie relationship….I’ll be waitin and watchin 4 da new season….and camille and jason need to break up….or maybe not

  25. Unfortunately, it looks like the game is not coming back which is “F’d” up that BET couldn’t make it happen. Most of the cast is pursuing other projects so even if BET still saves the show some of the cast won’t be the same , which sucks. Apparently BET doesn’t have the $$ to keep the game going…

  26. wow i can’t wait i’ve watched all of the reruns and now it’s time for the new season. i hope all the same characters come back it just wouldn’t be the same if they didn’t there the ones who made the show what is today. THANK YOU BET…..

  27. Big football fan. I’m very happy BET picked up the show. Looking forward to the new episodes. The GAME is my seinfield and friends. ONCE again thank you BET.

  28. LOOK I DONT CARE WHAT OR SHALL I SAY WHO TAKE OVER THE GAME. I JUST KNOW THE NEW SEASON HAVE TO COME OUT SOON. THAT WAS THE BEST SHOW SINCE GIRLFRIENDS AND THE WAITING IS KILLING ME. PLEAASSSEEE GET IT TOGETHER SO I CAN CONTINUE TO WATCH THE SHOW………….

  29. I am so happy this show is going to come back for another season. It makes me mad that THEY keep taking black tv shows that people really like off air. Once networks see the fan base I feel they should keep it going for the fans. The Game is such a real and down to earth show, and I feel people can relate to the show way more than F.R.I.E.N.D.S and that 70’s show. Cant wait to the new season starts.

  30. i really hope MOST of the cast are able to star on the show not for them for there fans. BET need to put out more information about them bringing the game back so we wouldnt have to google it ! BET is coming i=out with many different tv shows such as the family crews and the micheal vick project so apparently they have some kind of $ $ ! well i hope they bring it back and the people that make the show will still be there Jason Derwin Mel Malik Kelly Tasha TT and Brittany

  31. So there has not been a new episode in FOREVER!! Gets old watching reruns, so I think if BET is gonna bring it back they need to be steppin on it before people get tired of waiting!! They left with so much potential for the new season and has not done a thing… so PUT IT BACK ON AIR ASAP. A new season will bring a lot of viewers

  32. i am so happppppppppyyyyyyyy yeahhhhhhhh, i love that movie and i love derwin. The cast is a mazing i hpe they all come back to the show, i want to see whats gonna happen with kelly and jason, i can’t wiat to c it. love bet for bringing it back, u guys are the best. peace
