The Game Season 2: Do you feel prepared to rejoin The Game? Be confident! Paramount+ announced on Thursday that the second season of the successful revival series will premiere on the streaming service on December 15.
On that coming Thursday, two brand new episodes will debut. The last 10 episodes of the season will broadcast on Paramount+ every Thursday at 9 p.m.
The show first ran on The CW from 2006 to 2009, and then BET brought it back for another run from 2011 to 2015. In November of last year, Paramount+ gave longtime fans a new look at their favourite show, which included numerous original cast members as well as new participants in the franchise.
Even though the programme has moved from San Diego to Las Vegas, longtime stars Wendy Raquel Robinson and Hosea Chanchez will be back in their respective roles as sports agent Tasha Mack and footballer Malik Wright. The series, which features Adriyan Rae, Vaughn Hebron, Analisa Velez, and Toby Sandeman, provides a contemporary look at Black culture through the lens of professional football. As they compete for success in “the game,” the group must contend with issues of racism, misogyny, and classism even as they strive for happiness and personal fulfilment.
Paramount+ has issued a press release promising “double the laughs and heighten the drama” in Season 2 as fan-favorite characters and their relationships battle the winds of change.
Former stars Brittany Daniel and Pooch Hall guest starred as Kelly Pitts and Derwin Davis, respectively, in the first season. The character of Melanie “Med School” Davis, played by Tia Mowry from the show’s 2006-2009 original run, has been missed by many viewers.
When asked by ET if she will repeat the role at the 2021 EBONY Power 100 ceremony, Mowry answered, “Never say never,” despite her prior statements to the contrary.

‘The Game’ Season 1 Details
Mara Brock Akil created the American show The Game. The CW premiered the Girlfriends spin-off on October 1, 2006, following UPN’s cancellation.
Despite a successful first two seasons, the show was discontinued in May of 2009. At the April 2010 upfronts, Viacom’s BET Networks announced that it had reached a deal with CBS Corporation to develop new episodes of the series, move taping from Los Angeles to Atlanta, and renew the show. The fourth season premiere on January 11, 2011, was the most watched sitcom launch in cable television history, with 7.7 million viewers tuning in. The new seasons began running on BET on that same day. BET renewed the show for its sixth and final season in 2014, and it ran through August 5, 2015.
Paramount+ renewed the show for a new season in May 2021, and both Robinson and Chanchez will be back for it. The eleventh of November 2021 marked the premiere of the revived series, and in February 2022, the show was renewed for a second season.
‘The Game’ Season 1 Premise
First introduced in the Girlfriends episode of the same name in 2006, Joan Clayton’s first cousin Melanie Barnett (Tia Mowry) became the focus of The Game for its first five seasons. To be with her boyfriend Derwin Davis (Pooch Hall), Melanie, a first-year medical student, moved to San Diego against her parents’ wishes.
She had been accepted to Johns Hopkins University School of Medicine in Baltimore. The “San Diego Sabers,” a made-up football team, have drafted Derwin as their first-year rookie player. Melanie meets Tasha Mack (Wendy Raquel Robinson), the mother of Sabers starting quarterback Malik Wright (Hosea Chanchez), and Kelly Pitts (Brittany Daniel), the then-wife of Sabers captain Jason Pitts (Coby Bell), as she adjusts to her new life. Both women advise Melanie to keep an eye on her boyfriend because of the many “gold diggers” who approach professional football players.
The show follows the players’ and their significant others’ relationships as they develop over time, as Melanie adjusts to her new life as a medical student and the girlfriend of a professional football player.
‘The Game’ Season 1 Cast
Pooch Hall As Derwin Davis:
Derwin is a wide receiver for the San Diego Sabers and the spouse of Melanie Barnett (seasons 1–5, guest starring in seasons 6–9). Due of Derwin’s affair with Drew Sidora, Melanie ends their relationship in the season one finale. After failing at his initial attempt to get Melanie back, Derwin lashes out against her until she rescues him from a gold digger who attempted to “trap” him by making him a father. Derwin and Melanie became friendly again after some time away and were both seeing other people, but a chance encounter at the supermarket and then at Derwin’s apartment on Super Bowl Sunday rekindled their affection for each other, and they kissed passionately upon seeing each other again.
Even with all the distractions off the field, Derwin was a rising star for the Sabers until a knee injury ended his season. In the second season finale, he and Melanie reconcile after he learns that his ex-girlfriend Janay is carrying his child. Off the field, Derwin had problems with the Sabers considering cutting him because of an injury, with Melanie and Janay fighting, with Derwin and Melanie breaking up and then getting back together, with Melanie breaking up and then getting back with him while having an affair with a handsome doctor, with Derwin and Melanie breaking up and then trying to get with Janay only for the baby’s sake, and with Melanie breaking up and then getting back with him while having an affair with a handsome doctor.
On the penultimate episode of Season 3, Derwin and Melanie have their son and get married in a little ceremony. Derwin’s son’s exact paternity is unclear in the season four opener. During the fourth season, Derwin becomes the face of the Sabers and an all-star player, signing multiple sponsorship deals with companies like Nike. While it was reported in May 2012 that Hall would not be returning to The Game for season six, the news that he would be returning—albeit for a single episode—came in August. After being dealt to the Ravens in Season 6 for Bryce “Blue” Westbrook, Derwin now views the team as an enemy.
This made it possible for Derwin to visit Melanie while doing her residency in Baltimore. Although Derwin was at fault for the injury sustained by his former teammate and quarterback, Kwan Kirkland, the transaction was initiated and carried out by the team owner. At the end of the ninth season’s conclusion, we see that Derwin and Melanie have welcomed a baby boy and a baby girl. Seasons 7 and 8 passed without him.
