Last year, without Game of Thrones as its lead-in, the Ballers TV show on HBO dropped by more than 50% in the Nielsen ratings. Now that is back for a fifth season, can it regain some lost yardage, or are its glory days long gone? Will Ballers be cancelled or renewed for season five? Stay tuned. *Status update below.
An HBO comedy-drama, Ballers stars Dwayne Johnson, Rob Corddry, John David Washington, Omar Benson Miller, Donovan Carter, Troy Garity, London Brown, and Brittany S. Hall. The series follows former superstar Spencer Strasmore (Johnson), who has re-invented himself as a financial adviser for both young phenoms and veteran superstars. Spencer’s role in his clients’ lives far exceeds money management as he struggles to help them navigate the many pitfalls that come with life in the spotlight.

What do you think? Do you still like the Ballers TV series? Should this HBO TV show be cancelled or renewed for a sixth season?
*8/23/19 update: HBO has revealed that there won’t be a sixth season for the Ballers TV show.
Love this show I heard as bout it but never watched it now watching on demand..
I get the political stance but everything is that way. Hopefully it will come back
WTF! I love this show!!
How could they cancel Ballers one of the best shows on tv. Even if the Rock can’t handle it bc of all his other future commitments, they can still go on without him. He is def a big part of the show but I think the cast can keep this great show going. It would be very disappointing for them to cancel it. Please keep Ballers going and find a way 2 get the Rock on it. Ballers is the ****!!! Best show since Entourage
This show became too political, It lost all its focus in its ability to hold peoples attention. I don’t know why they destroyed the series and the fifth season. It could’ve been so much better but Johnson has so many other projects going on why should they continue this he’s a big success off by himself.
The Ballers blew it last season when they got political. The Nation is divided and when they chose a side with the writing they eliminated 50% of their audience. I don’t think they will get them back.. Too bad.
