ABC’s newest critically acclaimed comedy, Home Economics, returns at its new time – Wednesdays at 9:30 p.m. ET/PT. Groundbreaking comedy black-ish will receive a deserving sendoff as it returns in midseason for its eighth and final run.

The Game - Wendy Raquel Robinson and Hosea Chanchez

Paramount+, the streaming service from ViacomCBS, announced that its revival of The Game has been ordered to series with original cast members Wendy Raquel Robinson (Insecure) and Hosea Chanchez (Black Lightning) reprising their roles as sports agent Tasha Mack and footballer Malik Wright, respectively, with several other legacy cast members making special appearances. The half-hour series will be executive produced by original show creator Mara Brock Akil, showrunner and writer Devon Greggory (American Soul), Salim Akil (Black Lightning), and original executive producer Kelsey Grammer (Girlfriends) and Tom Russo (black-ish) of Grammnet NH Productions. The 10-episode first season of the new series will be produced by CBS Studios, Akil Productions and Grammnet NH Productions exclusively for Paramount+.

Relocating from San Diego to Sin City, The Game returns with a mix of original cast and new players to offer a modern-day examination of Black culture through the prism of pro football. The team will tackle racism, sexism, classism and more as they fight for fame, fortune, respect and love—all while trying to maintain their souls as they each play The Game. All nine seasons of The Game, which originally aired on The CW and then BET, are currently available to binge on Paramount+.
