My heart 🖤 is full of gratitude to all of you for rockin’ with us every season. You made us HBO’s highest rated comedy for years and most importantly, you helped create and sustain a platform for other actors to have the OPPORTUNITY to work hard, grow and become household names. To me, the opportunity Ballers created for so many others, is the real gold of our show. I love you, I thank you and enjoy our final season of BALLERS. This SUNDAY on @HBO. @SevenBucksProd
The series made its debut back in 2015 with Dwayne Johnson as the protagonist and has since then expanded its fan base. The series gained famed partly because it starred Dwayne Johnson as Spencer Strasmore, alongside the funny actor, Rob Corddry.
Ballers introduced its viewers to a whole new world of NFL agents, their players, their fortunes, financial managers, and how everything plays out in this game’s world. The plot center’s around Spencer Strasmore, who is a retired football star and tries to fit himself as a financial manager for the NFL players.
Things don’t roll out smoothly for Spencer, as he is faced with the struggles in dealing with rowdy coaches, players, club owners, etc. The past seasons of Ballers showcase the impediments that Spencer faces as he tries to level up his game. The series gets more interesting each season, and there are a couple of new faces that join later such as Russell Brand, Steve Guttenberg, John David Washington, and many others.
It will be difficult for HBO to let loose one of its favorite premium actors, but it will give more time to “The Rock” to focus on more blockbuster movies. Even for Dwayne’s co-star, Washington, he will be busy with his two movies that are set to be released in 2020.
Ballers will be ending with good 5 seasons in total, which is a great achievement for any series of this time. The series is also ending on its own will rather than being canceled, which shows that the series is loved by many.
