ViacomCBS announced the Season 2 renewal of freshman series The Game on Tuesday.
Before landing at Paramount+, The Game launched as a half-hour comedy on The CW, where it ran for three seasons. It later moved to BET for six seasons and became an hourlong dramedy.
Season 1 of the new series, which is available to stream in its entirety, centers on Black culture through the prism of pro football. The Las Vegas-based team tackled a number of social issues and more as they fight for fame, fortune, respect, and love — all while trying to maintain their souls as they each played The Game.
