The Game is a spin-off of another series called ‘Girlfriends’. The show was created by Mara Brock Akil and first aired on the CW Network beginning its run in 2006. After three seasons, the CW cancelled the show at which point BET decided to pick up the series. Unfortunately for fans, seems that the series will be coming to an end soon. According to Deadline, BET announced that it will not renew the show after season 9. Both seasons, 8 and 9 are currently in production. “The Game” is a comedy about the lives of football players and their wives…. While their men try to hone their gridiron talents on the field, the wives and girlfriends of pro football players sharpen their own skills behind the scenes when it comes to the power plays.
In a statement, BET announced the shows end with the following statement “In January 2011 the cult following of The Game proved that the show was a fan favorite with 7.7 million viewers for its premiere debut on BET.
