Looks like Mowry hints at a possible change of heart.
“Never say never,” the 43-year-old told ET Online. “I mean, as it stands for right now, we aren’t in any talks or communication about me coming back to the show.”
The Game reboot is set to premiere Thursday, November 11th on the streaming app Paramount+. Out of the original cast, Pooch Hall, Hosea Chanchez, Brittany Daniel, and Wendy Raquel Robinson are returning to reprise their characters.
“I know it seems kind of weird, because I’m like, the only one, but you know, Melanie, I loved playing that character, and if…everything works out the way that it should, then who knows, I might be on the show.”
There are new cast members that will be joining the reboot, such as Vaughn Hebron from Tyler Perry’s The Oval. As well as Toby Sandeman from Power Book III: Raising Kanan.
The Game actress added, “I will say this, if you guys want me on the show, continue to press, press, press the network and we’ll see.”
Eventually, Mowry and Hall decided to leave the series in 2012 for other projects. And both stars later rejoined the series in 2015.
As the popular series is getting ready for its premiere, Mowry is wrapping up her role on Family Reunion. According to Deadline, the comedy series has been renewed for the third and final season.
“Our pickup was very bittersweet because I’m very grateful to be picked up. To be able to last 3 seasons on any network is a huge accomplishment, especially Netflix,” Mowry says. “Because the shows usually don’t go past 3 or 4 years, my type of show, comedy with kids, so I’m very, very grateful that we are able to continue to tell our story.”
Playing the character, CoCo, the NAACP Image Award winner expresses her feelings on the series’ ending “It’s going to be nice to kind of go through that journey, but then it’s a little bitter because it’s our last season,” she reveals.
Being a child actress herself, the Sister, Sister star admits that she has become “very protective” of the children on Family Reunion.
“The kids are so phenomenal, and we will definitely stay in touch,” the Twitches star adds.
“I feel like yes, I am their TV mom, but working with children is always so rewarding to me because they remind me of me when I was a child actor,” she continues. “So, I’m very protective over them, and very nurturing, so we’re really gonna make this season the best season.”
