HBO has decided that’s that for the footballer hit after the fifth season. Dwayne Johnson (who is also an executive producer on the show) confirmed the news recently with a video on Instagram stating
“My heart is full of gratitude to all of you for rocking 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 other, is the real gold of our show. I love you, I thank you and enjoy our final season of ‘Ballers’,” The Rock wrote on his Instagram.
The HBO hit was created by Stephen Levinson and explores the lives of numerous NFL football players. The show (as mentioned) lasted 5 years and is alongside other programs like Game of Thrones and Veep who have all officially signed off this year at HBO. So what is next for the Rock and his cohorts…we shall have to wait and see!
