There are a few cast changes to note.
Actress Tia Mowry quit (or was fired, depending on who you ask), so the character of ‘girl Melanie’ is gone. Pooch Hall, who plays Derwin Davis (Melanie’s pro-footballer husband) follows in her departure, but not without making one final appearance on the show.

You may recall that there was a whole lot going on with the popular television show last year after the show’s main character, Tia Mowry was fired (or quit depending on who you ask). BET then searched for a younger couple to replace Mowry and Pooch Hall (Derwin Davis), who also departed during the finale.

You may have heard by now that Tia Mowry (Melanie) of BET’s popular sitcom The Game was fired from the show a few weeks ago and Pooch Hall (Derwin) is said to have been so upset that he reportedly walked out on his own.
BET released an official statement confirming that the cute onscreen couple won’t be returning, stating:
After five seasons on The Game, Pooch Hall and Tia Mowry will not return as regular cast members on season six on BET Networks.
As a result of Pooch’s involvement on a new project, BET is in the process of reworking the casting and storyline of the show. That said, we hope both Pooch and Tia will make several guest appearances.
While we will miss the incredible adventures of Melanie and Derwin on The Game, we appreciate all of their hard work, the laughs and wish them both the best on their future endeavors. (source)
In the finale, it was clear that the couple could possible return at some point. But BET is currently seeking new talent to fill both Tia and Pooch’s shoes.
