According to Entertainment Weekly, the upcoming season sees, Chanchez and Robinson “Relocating from San Diego to Sin City, The Game returns with a mix of new players and original cast to offer a modern-day examination of Black culture through the prism of pro football. The team will tackle racism, sexism, classism and more as they fight for fame, fortune, respect, and love — all while trying to maintain their souls as they each play The Game.”
The upcoming reboot will make the third network ‘The Game’ has been home to. Back in 2006 it aired on the CW for 3 seasons. Following its 2009 cancellation, BET revived the series in 2011 for another 6 seasons.
