Melanie & Derwin Returning To The Game? + Episodes 1-5 / by


All fingers point to yes! Tia Mowry-Hardict and Pooch Hall will most likely return to the hit BET series The Game for the season seven finale. Their characters Melanie and Derwin were actually written into the sixth season's finale but due to scheduling, their parts were written out.

Wendy Raquel Robinson, who plays Tasha Mack on the show, recently spoke to Mara and shed light on the situation. She says that the shows change isn't a bad thing and it's a true reflection of what actually goes in the the NFL with players being traded and leaving. See what she had to say below.


“They were written in to the season finale, but schedules just didn’t work out, so I think you will definitely see them back because it’s a mutual love, you know,” “Pooch and Tia they do want to continue on and do the show, but you know, things change.” 
Wendy doesn’t think change is necessarily a bad thing. In fact, she believes that Pooch and Tia leaving the show was pretty reflective of what actually goes on in the NFL. 
“Careers go in different directions,” Wendy explained. “It’s such a parallel to what happens in real life because, you know the game. People retire, you know, Jason’s retiring, new rookies come in, so you see the evolution not only of these characters, but you see the evolution of the sport of football itself.”
She added, “I know it’s an adjustment for the fans and the viewers that are really diehard, but hopefully, they’ll stay with us, and continue to watch and appreciate the growth and the change. And change is inevitable, ultimately.”
