The Game is inching closer and closer to its premiere date on Thursday (Nov.11), and a stacked cast is ready to play!
Several new cast members have been confirmed for the revival, including Vaughn Hebron (Tyler Perry’s The Oval), Adriyan Rae (Chicago Fire), Analisa Velez (Sneaky Pete), Tim Daly (Madam Secretary), and Toby Sandeman (Power Book III: Raising Kanan) . For the reboot, Hebron will play Jamison Fields, an undrafted free agent, while Rae will star as Brittany Pitts, the daughter of Jason and Kelly Pitts, and Velez will play Raquel Navarro, Brittany’s best friend. Daly will play Colonel Ulysses S. Thatcher, a self-made billionaire, and Sandemann will play Garret Evans, the top football player in the league.
Legacy characters are also set to come back with series regulars, Wendy Raquel Robinson (Tasha Mack) and Hosea Chanchez (Malik Wright). Additional original castmates Brittany Daniel (Kelly Pitts), Pooch Hall (Derwin Davis), and Coby Bell (Jason Pitts) will make special appearances.
The first season is sure to be a good one, with 10 episodes exclusively streaming on Paramount+.
Originally aired on The CW and BET, The Game tells the story of a group of women who all have relationships with professional football players and what they experience. BET previously reported the first season reboot would follow Tasha and Malik as they relocate from San Diego to Las Vegas, entering a world of new players.
BET’s American Soul Devon Greggory will sit as the showrunner, writer, and executive producer of The Game revival. He will be joined by fellow executive producers Brock Akil, Salim Akil, original executive producer Kelsey Grammer and Tom Russo of Grammnet NH Productions.
