The wait is nearly over for the anticipated return of 'The Game,' the at once CW staple now greenlit for a January 2011 premiere on BET !

Starring Tia Mowry, Hosea Chanchez, Pooch Hall, Coby Bell, Brittany Daniel, Wendy Raquel Robinson, with recurring roles at one point for Rick Fox (Dancing With The Stars) and Mehcad Brooks ('My Generation'), The Game left fans with a cliffhanger never to be addressed in 2009.

After months of support from fans, crossed fingers, and the official announcment that BET had indeed picked up the series, BET confirmed 'The Game' will return, with principle cast, January 11, 2011 at 10/9c in a half hour time slot.

It is unclear where the series will pick up with its central characters Melanie and Derwin.

In related news, Pooch Hall, who portrays Derwin on 'The Game,' stars in a soon to premiere music video for 'The Real Housewives of Atlanta' star and singer/songwriter Kandi Burruss. Titled "Leave U," the video leads Burruss' forthcoming sophomore disc "Kandi Koated,' due late 2010.
