Games People Play

After month of keeping fans in suspense, BET has announced that Games People Play will be back for a second season.

The steamy series that stars Sarunas Jackson, Lauren London, Parker McKenna Posey, and Jackie Long delivered major drama in its first season. Bet says we won’t know who is starring in the second season of the show until a later date.

“BET is home for lovers of black content that engages and entertains, and Games People Plays’s first season over-delivered with a plotline that grips from episode one through the finale,” Scott Mills, President of BET Networks, said in a statement. “Tracey Edmonds, Angela Burt-Murray and Vanessa Middleton have been great partners on Games People Play and we’re proud to continue our relationship, bringing our viewers the compelling programming they expect from our brand.”

Tracey Edmonds executive produced the series alongside Angela Burt-Murray, who penned the book Games Divas Play. 

“We are thrilled to return and be able to give our fans more of the sexy, twisted, and unique storytelling that they enjoy and expect from every episode of Games People Play,” Edmonds said in a statement.  “Our characters will continue to surprise and ignite in season two.  I am grateful to Scott Mills for his continued support of our show and its vision.”

“I always start off with a wish list and I can tell you that so many of the people that were on our wish list, we got,” says Edmonds. “Casting Marcus King, who is a a NBA ball player and trying to keep that authentic was going to be our most challenging character to cast. Having Sarunas, who is 6’8″ and used to play basketball in real life playing Marcus King was really lucky.”
