HBO has finally decided to pull their plug on Ballers tv show starring Dwayne ‘the Rock’ Johnson. Ballers tv show will end after season 5. Although, before of poor viewership after season 1, I expected the show to conclude after the 4th season.
But, it didn’t happen!!!
In fact, Baller season 4 ended with more questions than ever. HBO tried their best in season 4 but were unable to attract more viewers to the show. So, as a result, HBO made the decision to end the tv series after season 5. Now, when it comes down to this post, here I will provide Baller season 5 release date, spoilers & more.
Baller season 5 Release date?
Baller season 4 ended in October last year & 11 months later, season 5 will release on August 5. Dwayne Johnson will reprise his role as spencer in the show. In fact, after finishing the production of Disney’s upcoming movie Jungle Cruise, The Rock took to Instagram & posted a message stating his return for the final season of the series.
Dwayne Johnson’s Farewell to HBO’s Ballers
On his Instagram post, he wrote, “This series has been a helluva learning curve to produce and star in — but what will always matter most is you guys making us HBO’s #1 highest rated 30min show for years now.” He added, ”We look you directly in the eyes when we shake your hand. If we give our word to get something done – it gets done,” Johnson wrote. “If you cross us, we rip your jugular out. And there’s no problem that tequila (and maybe a few pills) can’t help fix 😈🥃.”

Just wrapped JUNGLE CRUISE, for DISNEY and had to shift major gears and to start filming season 5 of BALLERS for HBO. This series has been a helluva learning curve to produce and star in — but what will always matter most is you guys making us HBO’s #1 highest rated 30min show for years now. THANK YOU for rockin’ with us. I loved every minute of playing this character, “Spencer Strasmore” because we’re exactly one in the same. We look you directly in the eyes when we shake your hand. If we give our word to get something done – it gets done. If you cross us, we rip your jugular out. And there’s no problem that tequila (and maybe a few pills) can’t help fix 😈🥃 #ballers #season5 #hbo #RoyceDa65
In a separate post on IGTV, the rock shared good-bye speech to his co-star & highest quality human being John David Washington. He said, “ Usually this is reserved for our first AD to do something like this, but considering our past, considering our history, considering where we’ve come from, I wanted to be the one to do this and send this person home with a special goodbye.” Moreover, he went on to say, “When I think about our growth not only as actors but as brothers, this guy for sure will make us all proud and bring an Oscar home one day.”

What Happened in Ballers Season 4?
Relive what happened in Ballers Season 4:
Season 4 of the HBO’s baller’s ended on a rather emotional note when Spencer visited his brother’s grave. Moreover, we saw his legal struggle with the NCAA as he blamed the organization for his brother’s organization.
Due to this lawsuit, Quincy, who is under Spencer’s wing becomes eligible to play for USC. Although, in the end, he did some good but still don’t know whether that lawsuit is still in play. Baller season 5 will answer all the questions of season 4 like Will he get revenge for his brother? Do let us know what you think in the comments section given below.
Ballers season 4 ended with the biggest victory of Joe’s life. He sealed a deal with Nike for the skateboards he represents. In the final season, we will see him giving his best for elevating the extreme sports agency SportsX (Acquired by Anderson Financial).
Will Ricky Return?
Ballers season 4 ended with revealing Ricky’s secret of using steroids. Although, since ending his retirement, he’s been training his a** off for getting in shape. However, steroid use changed the whole scenario. Now, in Ballers season 5, Ricky’s NFL future will be the biggest question.
Ballers Season 5 Spoilers
Several months have passed & HBO is still tightlipped on the ballers season five plot. But somehow there are some leaks already available on Reddit. According to a thread on Reddit, Ballers season 5 will approach towards college athletics in season five.
A Reddit user said, “It seems pretty obvious that Spencer figured out a way to get everything he wanted. And if he’s able to get college kids paid, he’s the face of the movement and will be every major player’s first choice to manage their money.”
If this is true then we will get to see college football in the show. Besides, after the lackluster show in season 4, I was about to quit watching the show but now, I’m pretty much excited to watch Ballers season 5.
