Is That True: Tia Mowry Won’t Be Back For The Game?
The Game’s specialty has been that the series always try to retain its original cast members throughout seasons. The show was initially aired on The CW in 2006 and was switched to BET in 2011 before being discontinued in 2015.
Luck for the fans, the digital age has given rise to Paramount+ kickstarting show The Game a new season. The Game Season 10 will primarily act as a remake; however, there will be a significant change in the cast: Tia Mowry will not return to the series.
Since the first season, Tia Mowry and Pooch Hall have starred for The Game. Unfortunately, both left the program after the fifth season, reappearing briefly in the final season to end it.
Yet, it seems like when the program returned to Paramount+ this November, Mowry did not show up, which leaves fans a bit disappointed.
As her character Melonie was so crucial to the storyline, people couldn’t picture a remake without her. Thus, as the rumors about The Game’s remake were confirmed, many fans wondered whether the star returned or not. In an August TikTok clip, Mowry answered several commonly received questions, including one concerning The Game.
Her quick reply on if she would come back for the remake was, “Nope, sorry!” She didn’t provide any additional details at that point; however, she clarified her response in an October conversation with Entertainment Tonight.
Surprisingly, it appears she’s not against coming back to the program as the star clearly stated that “Never say never.”
Why Didn’t Tia Mowry Comeback To The Series?
Tia Mowry-Hardrict, who recently featured in the film Miracle in Motor City, has finally opened up about why she didn’t star in the Paramount+ remake of The Game.
“I liked Melanie and enjoyed every minute of portraying her,” Tia admitted with TVLine. “However, at this time, I don’t feel like coming back to the show. There have been no discussions about my return for the time being, and I’m fine with that. I’m pursuing a lot of other stuff, too.”
“As I’ve grown up, I’ve tried to pursue something in my life that make an influence, are worthwhile, and motivating in certain ways.” There are some areas I want to concentrate on, and those are the ones I devote my time and attention to,” the star carried on.
“It’s not to imply Melanie wasn’t any of my goals, but I’ve already experienced that. Thus, I want to move on and spare room for other inspirations. There is a lot more to focus on,” she added.
“I simply think there’s nothing else Melanie can accomplish or offer. She has had such an incredible journey, and I appreciated it a lot. However, everything I do has a start and an ending, and when that story is finished, it’s time to initiate a new one,” Tia concluded.
Tia Revealed Her Feelings About Her Not Returning
Knowing that the news will disappoint The Game’s long-standing fans, Tia has also shared some of her feelings.
“I know it feels odd since I’m basically, the only person,” she remarked, referring to other original actors who will come back in addition to Hall, who played the male protagonist.
“And you see, I enjoyed playing Melanie, and if things turn out just fine like how it ought to, then who can tell, I may be back in the series.” “And I will tell you this, if you folks want me on the program, keep pressing, pressing, pressing the network, and then we’ll see,” she continued.
In an interview with Atlanta Black Star, Hall (her previous co-worker on The Game) also stated that he was bummed that his co-star on the program would not be back. “It’s a shame we couldn’t pick up where we left it.”
“It stinks that she’s not back, but the good news is that she hasn’t disappeared completely since ending The Game. I bet the followers were excited to see her and me working together again. However, the series has to move on,” he finished off.
Also, according to Hall, the on-screen pair’s leave after season 5 might not have been entirely voluntary as they used to say. “Tia and I were excited to continue our adventure to that wonderful destination.”
“Then, surprisingly, they chose a different path. That’s their decision, and they believed that was the optimal approach for the series… Tia and I were pulled back to a point where we could, in a way, wind off our part,” Hall said
It seems Tia Mowry won’t return to The Game anytime soon. Naturally, many fans feel disappointed, but it’s the best for both worlds. The star is still on her way, conquering the screen and delivering her values to the public, while The Game still yields positive reactions. So let’s all hope for Tia Mowry’s net worth’s steady growth in the future and The Game’s success.
