In what’s being described as a "mutual decision," the lead actress on a cable dramedy series won’t be returning next season, according to The Hollywood Reporter’s Live Feed.
Tia Mowry will exit BET’s "The Game," the story reports. Mowry has played Dr. Melanie Barnett-Davis on the show since it debuted in 2006 on the CW.
The series moved to BET when the network picked it up for a fourth season, which debuted in 2011 and drew 7.7 million viewers for its premiere. It remains one of BET’s most-watched shows, and the network last month renewed it for a sixth season.
Mowry broke the news on Twitter, THR reports. Mowry tweeted: “Just wanted to let all my fans know that I will not be returning to The Game for season 6. It was an incredible run and I had lots of fun.”
Mowry has another show, the reality series “Tia & Tamera” on Style Network, where she co-stars with her sister, Tamera Mowry-Housley, the report notes.
