Dwayne Johnson took to social media to announce that the upcoming fifth season of the HBO sports comedy series Ballers will be its final season.
The series focused on a group of football players and their families, friends, and handlers, showcasing the cutthroat world of pro football and how they strive to stay in the game. The main focus is on Spencer Strasmore, a retired NFL player who must navigate his new career of choice as the financial manager of other NFL players.
The final season will see Spencer 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…as a team owner. Having parted ways with Spencer, Joe gambles aggressively to makes Sports X greater than ever with his new partner Lance. Meanwhile, Ricky has a setback that forces him to consider a new kind of future and tests his physical, mental and emotional resolve, Charles learns that being a general manager means getting your hands dirty, Vernon shifts his focus to his love of professional gaming despite Reggie’s wariness and Jason decides to take his career to the next level.

Hall, Carl McDowell, Jazmyn Simon, Jay Glazer, Mark Schlereth, Robert Wisdom, Richard Schiff, Steven Weber and Emayatzy Corinealdi.
