After successfully making its return to TV earlier this year, the fifth season of The Game is set to make its return to primetime in January.

Despite tepid reviews questioning the show’s storyline and execution, The Game was a hit for BET. After years of being off the air and fans rallying to bring it back, many were excited to see its return to television.

TheYBF caught up with Hosea Chanchez (Malik) over the weekend and he confirmed that new episodes of the show will be back on TV in January 2012.

Chanchez told TheYBF: “The new season starts in January…we go back to work next week.

With their new sitcom Reed Between the Lines staring Tracee Ellis Ross and Malcolm-Jamal Warner and the return of The Game, BET is poised to once again become the destination for Black entertainment.

Will you be tuning into season 5 of The Game? Any predictions?
