American drama series Games People Play premiered its first season back on April 23, 2019 on BET. The show was renewed for a comeback on November 13, 2019, however, fans are still waiting to see the second wind over two years later.
Based on the novel ‘Games Divas Play’ written by Angela Burt-Murray, the narrative is set within the world of professional sports, where there are only winners. The ensemble cast presents the lives of various professionals, including a reporter, basketball player, and housewife, but the main premise follows Nia, Vanessa, and Laila, alongside their relationships with the men in their lives.
Games People Play Season 2 Release Window
BET renewed Games People Play back in 2019, but radio silence has since surrounded the project and fans have no idea when season 2 will be airing.
Since its renewal, various reports have all banked on a 2021 release, but with the end of the year approaching and no update to speak of, there’s a chance we won’t see season 2 until 2022.
Other reports also stated that the show was meant to premiere on September 1, 2021, but that date came and went with no whisper of a release.
The only update that was posted back in September 2020, confirmed that Karrueche Tran was joining the cast of season 2, alongside Lauren London in a limited role.
Season 1 consisted of 10 episodes, each running around 41 minutes, and we can expect season 2 to follow a similar pattern.
Games People Play Season 2 Plot
Little is known about the season 2 plot for Games People Play, however, there are a few crumbs to gather.
It was reported that one of the directors involved in season one stated that the first season was more of a trailer for the second inning, where the drama is set to get a lot thicker. Other whispers surrounding the plot claim that the show will up the ante in terms of tension as the stakes get higher.
