The Game: Season Eight for BET TV Show

The Game season eightBET has reportedly renewed The Game for an eighth season. It’s unknown how many episodes have been ordered this time around but the seventh season — which is currently airing on Tuesday nights — has 10 installments.

Deadline broke the news as part of a story which reported that Brittany Daniel has been upped to series regular following her recurring role in seasons four and seven. Daniel had been a series regular on The Game in the role of Kelly Pitts, the wife of Sabers’ captain Jason Pitts (Coby Bell), during its original run on The CW.

Last month, Daniel revealed that she had stage IV non-Hodgkin’s lymphoma but is currently cancer-free.

What do you think? Are you still watching The Game on BET? Are you glad to hear that Daniel will be a regular in season eight?

I was struggling to have a reason to keep watching the show, Jason and Chardonnay were the only real grown up couple and it showed Jason maturity . When he stood her up at the alter all disrespectful I decided I had watched my last show. I don’t care what else happens – glad it’s cancelled waste of BET time and money

Please bring the show back for the 9 season.

Please bring back Melanie & Derwin, especially if there is truth in the show ending after season 9. Brandy tries but is not the right fit for the show; let her go and bring back the original cast that made The Game!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Blu is good but lose the non acting Lauren London. The show is NOT the same since the characters changed with new staff. I fell in love with the original CW cast & it’s a struggle to watch the current show; it doesn’t ma sense. Upgrade Jason from being so broke & let him & Kelly get back together. I guarantee the true “Game” followers will make viewing history for you if you brought back the original cast!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

When the show was picked up by BET, the changes were profound to say the least. Even to the point of being “too much”. Not a fan of the newbies added to the show. MISS Melanie & Derwin! Glad Kelly is coming back for the new season. I loved her naivety, but I think I’d be cool for her to comeback with a “Tasha Mac” attitude. And find the original Britt and bring her back too. Simpler storylines and sassy comedy like it had on the CW might breath a breathe of fresh air back into the show.

I am glad Kelly is a full time regular

The Game is so over the top now it doesn’t make sense and this was such a favorite…bring back the simplicity of Melanie and Derwin (bring them back!!!). Please let Tasha grow up and heal. Please let Malik finally become grounded…he’s chasing nightmares of former glory. Can he overcome abandonment and respectfully commit? Please let Jason be a man and stop reducing him to a weak penny-pinching love-neglected shallow shadow of football star…he’s better than that. Don’t kill the patriarch! Not sure of the Brandy fit…she’s giving it her all but the storyline is janky… And Blierra!…put that out of its misery. Blue would have been better for Kelly just before she hit rock bottom with Roman and her reality TV meltdown. Why not add characters like Salli Richardson, Nia Long, Sophie Okonedo, Regina King…to build solid relationships and stronger images. Bring back the Trey Wiggs story. …anything to resuscitate the show formerly known as The Game.

I personally love the show , I would love to see Derwin and Melanie come back so loved them together, I also love Brandy she is doing an excellent job with her character. I wish they would cut the laugh box because this is not a comedy nor should it be deemed as one…I am waiting for the new season , the lead star had her baby and I cannot wait to see what transpires with this. and Jason saying he wanted to be with Kelly I hope it turns out to be a dream ….
