In a statement released Thursday, BET has announced The Game star Pooch Hall will not be returning for the show’s sixth season.
The network states that the 35-year-old actor will end his run as Derwin Davis because of his “involvement on a new project.” Earlier in the year, Hall signed on to do Showtime’s new drama Ray Donovan.
Tia Mowry announced Tuesday night via Twitter that she would not be returning and has since been making her rounds on the morning show circuit to discuss the matter.
“You know what, it’s all good. It really is. I’ve been on the show five years. I had a great time on the show,” she told Sway in the Morning.
“I’m very happy with what I did. I love Melanie so much that sometimes I forgot to shut her off. There is no hard feelings [but] I’m here to talk about my book and Tia & Tamera.”
BET said it “is in the process of reworking the casting and storyline” and hopes Hall and Mowry “will make several guest appearances.”
