Say It Ain’t So!! After fighting for the popular show “The Game” to return to tv after being cancelled on the CW, our favorite football wife is leaving the show for good. Just moments ago, Tia Mowry, who plays the selfish yet lovable lead role of “Melanie Davis” on “The Game,” revealed to her fans that she will not be back for the sixth season of the hit show.
The new mom stated via her Twitter: “Just wanted to let all my fans know that I will not be returning to The Game for season 6. It was an incredible run and I had lots of fun along the way. I am looking forward to my upcoming projects…the release of my book #OhBaby [today!], season 2 of @TiaTameraShow on @mystyle premiering in June, and my @ABCFamily movie coming out in December…more to come!” love u so much Tia’s departure indeed comes as a surprise as she never gave any indication that she was contemplating leaving the show and in fact, was instrumental in bringing it back to tv after the CW dropped it. Interestingly, both of the projects Tia mentioned–her reality show and her ABC Family movie–have already been shot and are completed/near completion. So it’s unclear as to how a new season of “The Game” would interfere. And as for Pooch Hall, he hasn’t confirmed either way.
But on May 5th, the actor–who plays Melanie’s loving football star “Derwin Davis,” confirmed that BET was in the midst of working out a new contract. Whether or not that actually went through is yet to be seen. Pooch is working on a new Showtime series entitled Ray Donavan. The season 5 finale goes down June 5th, 10pm ET. I’d be sad to see this show end..will you?
