UPDATE (August 23, 2019): Two weeks after Ballers released a full trailer for its fifth season, Dwayne ‘The Rock’ Johnson announced on Instagram that it will be the final season of the HBO show.

The highest-paid actor in Hollywood posted a four-minute video announcing the news, and began by giving fans a glimpse of how Ballers came to be, along with his own decision-making process behind starring in the series. Of course, he also took the time to thank the crew of the show — which he says has now become family — and his fans for their continuous support, making Ballers the highest rated comedy on HBO for years and creating a platform for new, hardworking actors to gain success.

“It has been an honor to do, it has been an honor to produce, and it has been an honor to deliver to you guys, the fans,” says Johnson.

ORIGINAL STORY (August 8, 2019): Having shared a teaser trailer late last month, HBO has just dropped the first full-length trailer for Ballers season 5.

Dwayne Johnson returns as retired football superstar Spencer Strasmore, who in this season tries to go for it all against the other big time finance manager and agents. “I’m going to do it my way,” he says at one point. The two-minute clip also gives fans glimpses of Joe (Rob Corddry), Charles (Omar Miller), and Ricky (John David Washington), among other familiar faces, as well as the grittier side of Strasmore’s lifestyle. Odell Beckham Jr. and Russell Brand also star.

Ballers‘ fifth season hits HBO on August 25 at 10:30 p.m. EST.

Dwayne Johnson will also be starring in Jumanji: The Next Level this December.
