HBO has released the official teaser for the fifth season of Ballers, the network’s sports drama starring Dwayne Johnson.
Johnson returns as Spencer Strasmore, the football star-turned-financial adviser for young, promising athletes in Miami. The new teaser features a monologue from Strasmore himself, who shares the gritty side of life in the spotlight.
“I didn’t choose football. Football chose me,” he says. “I thought I’d always be known as a player. But identity is a funny thing. Just when you think you’ve defined yourself, there’s another chapter.”
Ballers is executive produced by Johnson, Stephen Levinson, Mark Wahlberg, Dany Garcia, Peter Berg, Evan Reilly, Rob Weiss, Julian Farino and Denis Biggs.
Rob Corddry, John David Washington, Omar Benson Miller, and Donovan Carter also star in the series, which returns Aug. 25 on HBO.
