I was deliriously happy when BET resurrected the NAACP Image Award winning series The Game and decided to broadcast a new season of 13 shows.
The Mara Brock Akil produced show picked up two years later where the Season 3 storylines left off when the CW abruptly canceled it after its merger with UPN
The Game kicked off Season 4 with a bang on January 11, 2011 when it garnered a record breaking 7.7 million viewers in its BET premiere. Pleased with The Game’s successful season, BET subsequently renewed the show for a fifth season with a 22 episode run
Season 5 of The Game will commence on January 10, 2012 and we get to see what has happened since the Season 4 finale. Derwin and Melanie were at a fertility clinic in which he found out the news that Melanie previously had undergone an abortion. Jenna has turned down Malik’s desire to reconcile with her. He’s also in hot water with the Sabers owner after he found out about Malik’s affair with his wife Parker, and Tasha discovers during a chance encounter with Bo that he’s not only not terminally ill, but is married with a family. And speaking of family, Jason quits his sports talk show job to focus on parenting his increasingly rebellious and out of control daughter Brittany
Here’s the sneak peek video that was on the BET website for the show..
So I’ll definitely be looking forward to checking it out on Tuesday nights and watching the drama surrounding my fave characters on The Game. I’m also hoping the show continues on the successful path it has blazed since being revived and broadcast on BET and gets renewed for another season..
