“Dwayne Johnson, Stephen Levinson, Mark Wahlberg and the rest of the ‘Ballers’ team have once again delivered a winner for our viewers,” said Bloys. “We look forward to another great season of ‘Ballers’ next year.”
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, the hit comedy series kicked off its ten-episode second season July 17. The premiere episode of the new season 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 – HBO’s biggest half-hour in six years.
