The Game is not over yet.

Cable channel BET is in talks to order a new season of the comedy, a spinoff from the long-running Girlfriends. The CW canceled Game in May after three seasons. Series creator Mara Brock Akil in April pitched CW an hourlong version of the show as a way of to keep it on the network, which was exiting the half-hour comedy business.

Following Game's cancellation, BET began preliminary talks with producer CBS Studios about possibly taking in the series with new originals. The cable network already runs repeats of both Game and Girfriends. The options on the Game actors have lapsed, so if a deal is reached with BET, CBS Studios would have to make new pacts with them. BET's only previous stab at launching an original scripted series was the 2008 comedy Somebodies, which ran for one season.
