A statement from the cable channel reads:
All good things must come to an end and after celebrating four successful seasons of THE GAME on BET, the Network has announced production is underway on the show’s final two seasons. In January 2011 the cult following of The Game proved that the show was a fan favorite with 7.7 million viewers for its premiere debut on BET. With seasons eight and nine, we’re excited to end on a high note by giving Sabers fans a chance to bid farewell to their favorite players on and off the field.
This will be the second ending for the series. The Game ran for three seasons on The CW but was revived for cable by BET with most of the show’s cast.
Of the show’s ending, series creator Mara Brock Akil said, “Shows do end; that is a part the business. I’m very happy BET gave The Game five additional seasons to explore these characters and this world. We made history when we got to the network and it’s nice to be able to celebrate the great achievements of the show.”
What do you think? Are you a fan of The Game? Would you like to see any former castmembers return for the finale?
