As reported, the popular dramedy has been revived on the Viacom streamer and will fuse the new and the known.
And viewers will be elated to note that kick-off commences on November 11.
In the 10-episode reboot, the action shifts 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.
Legacy stars Hosea Chanchez (Malik Wright) and Wendy Raquel Robinson (Tasha Mack) are back in the mix as anchors, while Pooch Hall, Coby Bell, and Brittany Bell will reprise their respective roles as Derwin Davis, Jason Pitts, and Kelly Pitts.
They will be joined by the following newcomers to ‘The Game’:
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.
First airing on The CW in 2006, ‘The Game’ ran for three seasons before its abrupt end in 2009 when the network veered 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.
Roll on November!
