BET has renewed The Game for a fifth season. The order is for an increased 22 episodes - up from the 13 the show aired in Season 4, which wrapped up two weeks ago on March 29.

The most recent season of The Game was the show's first on its new network. The football dramedy got its start on The CW in October 2006 but was eventually canceled after three seasons in May 2009. BET subsequently picked up the series, which debuted on the network in January of this year.

Look for Season 5 of The Game to kick off in January 2012.
