Ballers Renewed for Third Season

Following the return of the hit show for its second season on July 17, HBO has renewed BALLERS for a third season.

“Dwayne Johnson, Stephen Levinson and the rest of the BALLERS team have once again delivered a winner for our viewers,” said Casey Bloys, president of HBO Programming. “We look forward to another great season of BALLERS next year.”

Looking at the whirlwind lifestyles and real-life problems of former and current football players, BALLERS stars Dwayne Johnson as ex-superstar Spencer Strasmore, who has reinvented himself as a financial manager for today’s players in sun-soaked Miami. Created by Stephen Levinson (HBO’s “Boardwalk Empire”), the hit comedy series kicked off its ten-episode second season July 17.

The audience for the premiere episode of season two is already at 5.7 million viewers, with only preliminary data available. BALLERS’ first season went on to average 9.1 million viewers in gross audience, making the show HBO’s most-watched half-hour in six years.

In addition to Dwayne Johnson, cast regulars on season two of BALLERS include Rob Corddry, John David Washington, Omar Benson Miller, Donovan Carter, Troy Garity, Jazmyn Simon, London Brown, Arielle Kebbel, Dulé Hill, Richard Schiff and Andy Garcia.
