Take it from Tia Mowry: Everybody loves a good comeback story. Two years after her football wives comedy The Game was canceled by The CW, the revived series is scoring big-time ratings for BET. And in April, Mowry will begin shooting a new reality series documenting her first pregnancy — her husband is actor Cory Hardrict — and her twin sister Tamera's wedding plans. Touchdown!
TV Guide Magazine: How does it feel to be rescued from cancellation?
Mowry: All of a sudden to have my job back... And it's better than before? I'm thrilled!
TV Guide Magazine: How have fans who've followed you since your Sister, Sister days reacted to seeing you as Melanie, a character who just last week was considering a ménage à trois to spice up her marriage?
Mowry: Sister, Sister was fun, but this character is real. I have a Twitter account, @TiaMowry, and every day I have people writing to me. Melanie has so many flavors to her that make her relatable. I love that she's not perfect.
TV Guide Magazine: What's in store for Melanie as the March 29 finale approaches?
Mowry: You'll see her desire for a baby. There's a cliff-hanger — even I'm shocked.
TV Guide Magazine: Will fans have to wait another two years for Season 5?
Mowry: I hope not! We haven't heard anything. I would be thrilled to hear about a pickup, because I'm in love with this character.
TV Guide Magazine: Tell us about the upcoming docu-reality series Tia and Tamera Take 2.
Mowry: It will follow what's going on in our lives. Right now I'm five months pregnant and I've put on 20 pounds. I get tired, but I'm so happy. It's like a dream and I don't want to wake up.
The Game airs Tuesdays at 10/9c on BET.
