WATCH: BET fires off the new teaser for ‘The Game’ Season 8

Even though Season 8 doesn’t kick off until January 14th BET had already announced months in advance that the following 9th season of The Game will be its last and final season, there really weren’t any legitimate reasons given for the shows demise but if you’re a fan of the series they’re basically busting off a few warning shots to soak it up while you can before it falls into the TBS bargain basket. Get into the new teaser below..

“I’m really proud of the look of our show, that we took a multi-cam budget and turned it into a single camera show. Its look, its tone, its approach, the characters’ development — that, yes, we were a half-hour comedy but we used our moments to deepen the characters. We also offered drama in a half-hour space.”

“We were part of the history of television and how it interacts with social media and how it can be an asset to a show and the support of a show. I think The Game is locked in history about that movement.” -Mara Brock Akil/BET
