The Rock’s Ballers Will End Its HBO Run After This Season (Video)

This Sunday, Ballers will begin its fifth season on HBO. The show’s star and executive producer, WWE Legend The Rock, took to Instagram to report to fans in an emotional video that it would also be the final season for the popular comedy.

Cheers to our FINAL SEASON of @HBO’s BALLERS.  My heart is full of gratitude to all of you for rockin’ with us every season. You made us HBO’s highest rated comedy for years and most importantly, you helped create and sustain a platform for other actors to have the OPPORTUNITY to work hard, grow and become household names. To me, the opportunity Ballers created for so many others, is the real gold of our show.

I love you, I thank you and enjoy our final season of BALLERS.  This SUNDAY on @HBO. @SevenBucksProd

With The Rock commanding such a high price in Hollywood these days, it’s no surprise that his TV endeavors take a backseat. Still, it can’t be great news for HBO, a network that’s also losing everything from Game of Thrones to Veep this year.
