It looks as though Tia Mowry and Pooch Hall won’t be returning to season six of BET’s hit show, The Game. The news comes shortly after it was announced the show would return for its sixth season, the third with BET since getting picked up by the network after originally getting cancelled on The CW.
The news first surfaced when radio personality DeDe McGuire tweeted:

Pooch hasn’t confirmed his departure, but industry insiders are saying that he’s left the show as well.
Will you still watch The Game? We don’t know how the show will continue on without Melanie & Derwin.
