‘Not in My DNA’: Tia Mowry-Hardrict Explains Why ‘Sister, Sister’ Won’t Be Returning, Says a Reboot of ‘The Game’ Isn’t Coming Back Either

Tia Mowry-Hardrict stopped by the “Tamron Hall” show last week and revealed some news that will probably hit her fans the hardest: There won’t be a reboot of the sitcoms “Sister, Sister” or “The Game,” which she both starred in.

Hall asked the actress if “Sister, Sister” would return, which started that part of the conversation.

“So many people are asking this question. We tried to do it, but some rights and stuff kind of got in the way and that makes me sad,” said Mowry-Hardrict about “Sister, Sister.” “And then also we tried to reboot ‘The Game’ and that’s now not happening.”

The studio audience let out a collective groan upon hearing the news, and the actress gave a theory as to why things didn’t work out.

“I just guess reboots are not in my DNA,” she joked.

“Sister, Sister,” which also starred Mowry-Hardrict’s twin sister Tamera Mowry-Housley, ran from 1994-1999. Some of its co-stars included Jackée Harry, Tim Reid and Marques Houston.

“The Game,” created by Mara Brock Akil, first aired on The CW in 2006 for three seasons, before it was cancelled and headed over to BET in 2011. It then went off the air in 2015.

Besides Mowry-Hardrict, Pooch Hall played in the series, as did Hosea Chanchez and Coby Bell.

After hearing the news about both shows not returning, people shared their sadness about it on Instagram.

“Damn, I’m about to go cry 😩 I want a Sister, Sister reboot,” someone wrote on Instagram.

“We def need The Game back,” another person commented.

“Wtf done happen to the game reboot y’all had us excited,” wrote a third Instagram user.

“Awww man was here for both of them,” a fourth stated.
