Mel and Derwin, gone? Say it ain't so! Unfortunately, it is so. It's a sad, but true reality for the fans of the hit TV show, which leaves some to wonder how the show can go on without them?
The main characters of the hit tv series, The Game that airs on BET, have officially jumped ship, and won't be returning next season. Tia Mowry who plays Melanie on the show, took to Twitter Wednesday informing her fans of her departure from the show. However, there has been no reason stated as to why she made this decision, or who initiated it.
"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... I am looking forward to my upcoming projects... the release of my book #OhBaby."
Then today, Pooch Hall, who plays Melanie's husband Derwin, came with another devastating blow for fans, stating that he will not be returning to the show next season either. According to a statement released by BET, Hall is leaving the show so that he can pursue other acting opportunities, which is believed to be the new role that he's acquired on the Showtime pilot, Ray Donovan.
These surprising turn of events leaves fans wondering what will happen to the show with the two centerpieces missing. BET stated that it "is in the process of reworking the casting and storyline", and that their hopes are that both Mowry and Hall "will make several guest appearances" in the new season.
What do you think? Is it "game over" for The Game?
