The Cincinnati Bengals will be making a return engagement on HBO's reality series "Hard Knocks," per the Cincinnati Enquirer after the news was first reported on Twitter by Paul Domowitch of the Philadelphia Daily News.

The Bengals, coming off back-to-back playoff seasons, were last on the series in 2009.

It will be head coach Marvin Lewis' third go-around on the TV show, as he was also an assistant coach in Baltimore in 2001 when the Ravens were the subject of the series' inaugural series.
