Interestingly there wouldn’t be any extension for the hit sports TV series ‘Ballers’ after its upcoming season 5, as confirmed by Dwayne Johnson ‘The Rock’ himself. The 47-year-old actor admitted his heart is “full of gratitude” for the success of the HBO show – in which he plays retired NFL pro Spencer Strasmore, who becomes a financial advisor after quitting the game – and says the programme has been the channel’s “highest-rated comedy in the past five years”.
Dwayne Johnson said: “I felt like it was an opportunity not only to embrace culture, not only to embrace ambition, not only to embrace success, as we do on the show, but also to embrace the failures, which is a key and critical thing in life, is to embrace those failures and learn from them.”
“Here we are, five years later, and you, the fans, have made ‘Ballers’ HBO’s highest-rated comedy the past five years. Which is just incredible considering the tremendous comedies that have been on HBO,” he stated.
