Fans of “The Game” can now breathe easy because they will be receiving a proper farewell from the series after a 10-year run. This evening at the BET Awards, cast members of the series, including Pooch Hall, took the stage and confirmed that Melanie and Derwin will be making cameos for the series finale.
“It’s official, ya boy is back,” Hall said. “But yo, it’s not just me. Melanie is also back on ‘The Game’ for the finale.
Unfortunately, Tia Mowry was not present, but according to Hall, she planned to attend but had to stay home because she is feeling under the weather.
“Tia wanted to be here, but Tia fell ill, so Tia feel better. We love you, and that’s what’s up,” he continued.
News of the reunion is pretty shocking considering that Mowry told fans early on that she would not be partaking the final season.
“The [love] I am receiving from fans of Melanie on ‘The Game’ is so amazing and touching! I couldn’t just ignore,” Mowry wrote on Facebook. “I had amazing 5 yrs on the show and feel so blessed to be have been a part of it:) Many are asking if I am making a return for the last year, and the answer is no. But again, I felt so blessed, so blessed, to have played Melanie Barnett!#melanieandderwinforever.”
We’re thrilled to see that she has experienced a change of heart.
So, will you be tuning in to BET on August 5 to catch Melanie and Derwin together one last time?
