When ‘The Game’ revival arrives on Paramount+ it’ll be bringing a number of familiar faces with it.
For, moments ago, it was announced that both Pooch Hall and Brittany Daniel will be reprising their roles of Derwin Davis and Kelly Pitts respectively.
More on casting below…
Per Paramount+, Hall and Daniel will make appearances during the 10-episode season – which also brings back fellow legacy names Hosea Chanchez (Malik Wright) and Wendy Raquel Robinson (Tasha Mack).
They will be joined by the following newcomers to ‘The Game’ narrative:
Adriyan Rae (‘Chicago Fire’) as Brittany Pitts, the daughter of Jason and Kelly Pitts; Vaughn Hebron (‘Tyler Perry’s The Oval’) as Jamison Fields, an undrafted free agent; and Analisa Velez (‘Sneaky Pete’) as Raquel Navarro, Brittany’s best friend.
In the reboot, the action shift from San Diego to Las Vegas and will blend the original cast with new faces. The new iteration of the football-focal series will tackle racism, sexism, classism, and more as the collective fight for fame, fortune, respect, and love.
Debuting on The CW in 2006, ‘The Game’ aired for three seasons before its abrupt end in 2009 when the network moved away from the sitcom format.
Fan demand saw the show re-launched on BET in 2011 and ran for an additional six seasons.
All nine seasons of ‘The Game’ are available to stream on Paramount+ ahead of the incoming season.
