Dwayne Johnson continues to prove that he is one of the most bankable and dependable actors in Hollywood today.
Fresh off huge box office numbers for Furious 7 and San Andreas, the actor’s HBO series Ballers has been doing extremely well for the network.
Today, Michael Lombardo, President, HBO Programming, announced that the network was renewing Ballers for a second season.
“The charismatic and hugely talented Dwayne Johnson, along with the rest of the BALLERS cast, has truly struck a chord with the HBO audience,” said Lombardo. “We are thrilled with the overwhelming response the series has received and look forward to another exciting season.”
Ballers looks at the lives of former and current football players, following former superstar Spencer Strasmore (Dwayne Johnson), who is trying to reinvent himself as a financial manager for current players in sunsoaked Miami.
