The Game Poised to Return to The CW

The Game is poised to make another return from the dead.

Deadline is reporting that the football-themed series is getting the revival treatment at The CW.

The Game initially aired on the young-skewing network for three seasons before being canceled in 2009.

Bet later swopped in to revive the series, and it blossomed into one of the most-watched shows on cable.

It aired on Bet from 2011-15, ultimately concluding after its ninth season.

Given that the CW does not currently air half-hour comedies, this new iteration of the series would take the form of a one-hour dramedy.

Even more promising is that original creator, Mara Brock Akil is returning to write the series, with Devon Greggory (Underground) attached to severe as showrunner.

If the series garners a CW order, it would be set in Baltimore, as opposed to the original's San Diego, but that does not mean original stars will not return.
