BET didn’t waste anytime casting replacements for Tia Mowry and Pooch Hall.
After Mowry and Hall allegedly had salary disputes that resulted in their departures from the show, BET quickly set out to find new faces to join the show. According to TV Line, Lauren London will play the role of Kiera, who is a former child star who is currently appearing in a Cosby Show-esque sitcom.
Producers of the show are still in search for an actor to play an all-star running back. BET opted to cast new characters instead of find replacements for the lead roles of Melanie and Derwin.
Mowry confirmed that she would not be back for another season in May. She explained she wanted to focus on filming season 2 of her Style network reality show with her twin sister Tamera, while promoting her parenting book Oh Baby: Pregnancy Tales and Advice from One Hot Mama To The Next. Tia will also star in a ABC Family movie in December.
Hall, who now has had a change of heart and wants to return to the show, initially wanted to focus on his new show on Showtime, Ray Donovan.
Wendy Raquel Robinson, Coby Bell, Hosea Chanchez, Brandy Norwood and Barry A. Floyd will all be returning for another season.
