Though “The Game” fans seem to be getting acquainted with newbies Keira and Blue, it’s obvious that fans are still missing Melanie and Derwin. Fortunately for those fans, actress Wendy Raquel Robinson (Tasha Mack) says the show’s beloved couple will definitely be returning to the series at some point.
“I think you will definitely see them back because it’s a mutual love, you know,” Robinson told Mara the Hip Hop Socialite during a recent interview. “Pooch and Tia they do want to continue on and do the show, but you know, things change, careers go in different directions and things like that.”
Interestingly, she adds that the duo were actually supposed to appear in the show’s upcoming season finale; however, their hectic schedules did not permit for them to be there.
“What they were trying to do – everybody’s schedule is so crazy – they did actually, they were written in to the season finale, but schedules just didn’t work,” she explained.
While it’s unfortunate that producers couldn’t make the Derwin/Melanie reunion happen this season, they did bring back Kelly Pitts—a move that Robinson says will really shake things up this season, as we can already see.
“If it’s thrown her [Chardonnay] off in episode 4, you can only imagine how much more it’s going to throw off everything,” the 46-year-old actress shared. ““If it’s thrown her [Chardonnay] off in episode 4, you can only imagine how much more it’s going to throw off everything.”
She also adds that the Kelly boomerang will lead into season eight of the long-lived series, which has just been green-lit by BET Networks.
“It’s definitely going to lead us to a season 8, which we just got, thank God. Because the way the finale ends, there’s no way that we could have walked away from the series in that capacity.”
What do you think of season seven so far? Do you miss Melanie and Derwin?
