HBO Press Release On Final Season of The Rock’s “Ballers” Show

HBO issued the following press statement today: 

HIT COMEDY SERIES BALLERS, STARRING DWAYNE JOHNSON, RETURNS FOR ITS FIFTH AND FINAL SEASON AUGUST 25, EXCLUSIVELY ON HBO

Exploring the glamorous, often cutthroat, world of pro football through a group of past and present players striving to stay in the game, BALLERS stars Dwayne Johnson as exsuperstar Spencer Strasmore, who has reinvented himself as a financial manager for today’s players. Created by Stephen Levinson (HBO’s “Boardwalk Empire”) who also serves as showrunner, the hit comedy series returns for its eight-episode fifth and final season SUNDAY, AUG. 25 (10:30-11:03 p.m. ET/PT), exclusively on HBO. The series is also available on HBO NOW, HBO GO, HBO On Demand and partners’ streaming portals.

This season finds Spencer (Johnson) settling into retirement and reflecting on his past, when an offer that’s too good to refuse comes his way and sends him back into the lion’s den, this time as a team owner. In the wake of his split with Spencer, an ambitious Joe (Rob Corddry) gambles aggressively to make Sports X greater than ever with the help of his new partner, Lance (Russell Brand). Meanwhile, Ricky (John David Washington) has a startling setback that forces him to consider a new kind of future and tests his physical, mental and emotional resolve; Charles (Omar Miller) learns that being a general managermeans getting your hands dirty; Vernon (Donovan W. Carter) shifts his focus to his love of professional gaming despite Reggie’s (London Brown) wariness; and Jason (Troy Garity) decides to take his career to the next level.

Other returning cast regulars include John David Washington, Rob Corddry, Omar Miller, Donovan Carter, Troy Garity, London Brown and Brittany S. Hall. Returning guest stars include Russell Brand, Carl McDowell, Jazmyn Simon, Jay Glazer, Mark Schlereth, Robert Wisdom, Richard Schiff, Steven Weber and Emayatzy Corinealdi.
