Fans of the former CW turned Bet sitcom The Game now have January 11, 2011 circled as Game Day – the day the snow returns from the dead for its fourth season. The official Twitter for the series recently asked what we hoped to see when the comedy returns, so I elected to make a wish list of my own. Here are the top five things that I want to see when The Game makes its triumphant return.
1. Jason (Coby Bell) and Kelly (Brittany Daniel) back together. It doesn’t have to happen right away – in fact, according to my interview with Brittany Daniel, it probably won’t. That’s okay. I just want to see my favorite couple back together. Even through their divorce struggles, it’s been obvious that the frugal team captain and the ditzy former cheerleader deserve each other, even if they might not have married for the right reasons. »

It turns out The Game isn't over yet. It just took a timeout, albeit a long one. The sitcom originally ran on The CW network for three seasons, with the last of the first-run episodes appearing in May of 2009. Bet has announced it's bringing the series back on January 11, 2011. The hope is to build on fan interest that began even before the original series cancellation was announced.
The Game is a comedy/drama produced by Kelsey Grammer and is a spin-off of the series Girlfriends. Tia Mowry stars as a first-year med student who ignores being accepted into Johns Hopkins University School of Medicine, preferring instead to follow her boyfriend (Pooch Hall) to San Diego. He's been tapped by a professional football team as a promising new rookie. Other castmembers include Brittany Daniel, Coby Bell, Hosea Chanchez and Wendy Raquel Robinson.
The Game may be the best comedy you’re not watching. Thankfully, Bet has brought it back for a fourth season so you have a second chance to catch this funny, snappy and even touching series about football players and their significant others. Probably the most outspoken character on the show is quarterback Malik Wright. The actor behind hotheaded Malik, Hosea Chanchez, sat down with me Tuesday to talk about what’s ahead for him and the rest of the San Diego Sabers.
First things first – how does it feel to be coming back?
It feels like a second chance. It’s a great, great, great thing. We’re all so blessed. The reruns really took off. The reruns actually helped – they were the number-one show on Bet last year. They rerun us more than any show I’ve ever seen. It just never really went away. There were rumors from day one. »

After having to endure nearly a year of rumors and false hopes, fans of The Game are finally getting the news they've been waiting for.
First airing on Upn, The Game began as a spin-off of the long-running comedy, Girlfriends.

Others in the cast include Brittany Daniel, Coby Bell, Wendy Raquel Robinson, Hosea Chanchez, and Barry Floyd.
In September, news surfaced about the show being revived but nothing happened. In October, there were more rumors but still nothing happened. Then, in November, the cast reunited on The Mo’Nique Show. Promos showed the host asking the cast if The Game was coming back but that portion was edited out of the final broadcast without explanation.

We've had plenty of rumors over the past year about The Game and now we have another one. Has Bet made a deal to pick up the cancelled sitcom for real this time?

Good news for fans of The CW's canceled sitcom "The Game"! Bet has reportedly inked a deal with Paramount to produce fresh episodes of the show nearly a year after its cancellation.
The show, a spin-off of "Girlfriends," ran for three seasons on The CW. The network canceled the series in 2009 when it failed to bring in regular viewers in its Friday night time slot.
Bet picked up the series for syndication and chose to develop new episodes after the reruns found a fresh audience on the network. Currently, Bet is in negotiations with the actors, whose contracts with "The Game" expired.
Robinson, who also starred on The Steve Harvey Show, will guest star as Gina, a very difficult patient. We're hearing Owen (Kevin McKidd), Teddy (Kim Raver), Callie (Sara Ramirez) and Cristina (Sandra Oh) will all work together to help her.
Robinson will appear in one episode slated to air in late March. Yesterday, the show also announced a bigger guest casting move - Jake McLaughlin as Alex's brother Aaron.
