“All good things must come to an end, and after celebrating four successful seasons of The Game on BET, the network has announced production is underway on the show’s final two seasons,” reads a statement posted on BET’s Website.

The network added that the show’s January 2011 debut garnered an amazing 7.7 million viewers and that it hoped to give “Sabers fans a chance to bid farewell to their favorite players on and off the field.”

The Game - which started on The CW before finding second life on BET after three years - was renewed earlier this year for Season 8. It will premiere in early 2015.
