“The Game,” BET’s most watched scripted show in the network’s history, will be returning to your TV sets really soon!

According to our friends at The YBF, the brand new season of the show is slated to premiere in January 2012.

Hosea Chanchez (Malik) spoke with YBF at a New York Fashion Week show over the weekend, and he confirmed the news that the show’s next season kicks off at the top of the year.

“The new season starts in January … we go back to work next week,” he said.

After BET rescued “The Game” from cancellation on its former network The CW, the series has brought in record ratings.

When the series made its debut on BET earlier this year, it pulled in an astounding 7.7 million viewers, more than 3 times the 2 million viewers it pulled while on The CW network. While on BET, “The Game” was watched by an average of over 4 million viewers every Tuesday night.

It’s definitely interesting to see how the show will do in its 5th season.
