Everyone’s favorite star, The Rock, will be back again with a fifth season of the hit show Ballers as part of the fall lineup of shows. The popular series will continue to focus on sports agent Spencer Strasmore (Dwayne Johnson) and his adventures navigating the tricky waters with professional athletes, teams, and other organizations.
Here are more details about the upcoming Ballers Season 5 release date to know just when to expect this show back on television this fall.
Ballers Season 5 to bring eight new episodes
Ballers viewers already know what to expect and are anxiously awaiting a new season. The comedy-drama has brought all sorts of hilarity and new developments over the course of the first four seasons. The first few seasons involved Strasmore and his buddy Joe Krutel (Rob Corddry) dealing with their NFL clientele.
Spencer dealt with the NFL while trying to move a team to Las Vegas in the third season. During Season 4, Spencer and Joe got involved with SportsX, an extreme sports business. Actor and comedian Russell Brand appeared in the season to provide more humor.
Ballers Season 5 already has all eight episodes listed for the new season. Here are all of the upcoming episode titles:
- “Protocol Is for Losers”
- “Must Be the Shoes”
- “Who Wants a Lollipop”
- “Players Only”
It’s unknown who might pop up in these episodes, but Ballers has shared a similarity to former HBO hit Entourage in that celebrities or star athletes make cameos. Some of those who have appeared in previous episodes included hip-hop star Travis Scott, NFL player Terrell Suggs, and NBA star Stephen Curry.
Early previews for the new season revealed new Cleveland Browns star Odell Beckham Jr. as well as the return of Russell Brand’s character. A trailer for the Ballers Season 5 (below) arrived within the past week to give fans a sneak peek at the new season.
