I am glad that HBO has renewed the series BALLERS for a second season, this was the recent announcement by Michael Lombardo, president, HBO Programming. Currently airing on HBO same time as the US – Mondays at 10am (9am Thai.Jkt) with a same day primetime encore at 10pm (9pm Thai.Jkt), BALLERS is also on HBO GO and HBO On Demand in selected territories.
“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.”
From creator Stephen Levinson (HBO’s “Entourage” and “Boardwalk Empire”), 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 sun soaked Miami.
Among the early critical raves, Entertainment Weekly described it as “funny” and “fast-moving,” giving the series an A-, while the Hollywood Reporter called Dwayne Johnson “magnetic,” hailing his “star performance.”
In addition to Dwayne Johnson, cast regulars on season one of BALLERS include John David Washington, Omar Miller, Donovan W. Carter, Troy Garity, London Brown Jazmyn Simon and Rob Corddry.
BALLERS joins a strong lineup of returning comedy series on HBO that also includes “Girls,” “Togetherness,” “Veep,” “Silicon Valley” and “Getting On.”
