The Game: Plans for Series Revival Cancelled at The CW

The Game TV Show on BET: canceled or renewed?

The Game is not coming back! The revival planned by The CW is not moving forward after the network saw what was planned for the return of the series by Mara Brock Akil. A redevelopment deal was offered to Akil, and her partner, Devon Greggory, but it was turned down. Akil was happy with the revival she created.

Deadline revealed the following about the plans proposed to The CW:

“Written by Akil and Greggory, the new incarnation of The Game was to have a new Baltimore setting. The idea was for some of the original cast members to come back as the show’s out-of-touch old-timers are determined to help a bunch of knuckle-head new-schoolers navigate the ruthless game of football on and off the field.”

The Game aired for three seasons on The CW before it was canceled by the network. It was then picked up by BET. The series then aired for six seasons on that network.

What do you think? Were you planning to watch the revival of The Game? Are you upset that the series will not return to The CW?
